The Isaacsons, 1971

I recently acquired some new photographs from the Cooper household.  Among them I found this great picture of my paternal grandparents, Oscar and Ruth Isaacson.  The picture is from around the time of my parents' graduation from Augustana and their wedding.

Incidentally, those would be pretty hip outfits on my college students.  Or maybe would have been when I was in college (I guess it's now been something like 10 years since Lisa Loeb glasses were in).

The tie comes from Oscar's lodge. He was chieftan of the lodge around this time and the tie went with the other accoutrements of office.

Ruth looks as good in that picture as she looked in her later years. It was a time when they were both still in good shape - though they both smoked way too much.

That's a great picture. I don't recall ever seeing it. I wonder why my folks had it. Do you know where it was taken?

I don't know where it was taken, but I assume Rock Island -- it was in the wedding album that the Coopers had.
