After that I went to a boarding school in Milwaukee, called Milwaukee
How large was Watertown at that time?
And how far from Milwaukee? Did you have a chance to get into the city?
About 45 miles. Yes, I often went to shop with my mother in Milwaukee.
That must have been something to look forward to.
Oh, yes, it was a joy. And when I went to boarding school there I enjoyed myself
very much because I loved to go to hear the concerts and I loved to go to the
theater. The school itself --I think it impressed me tremendously--but it was
very confining; it was very strict and quite rigid.
Was it a denominational school?
No, no, but it seemed to me that we studied a great deal. We got up at 6:30 in
the morning and we were doing something every minute until 10 at night, and that
was it. And this went on for four years.
