Scope and content

This photograph of Janet Williams and Earl Johnsen was taken by the Richards Studios on January 5, 1951 shortly before their engagement announcement was published in the News Tribune. The two College of Puget Sound seniors were graduates of Lincoln High School and planned a fall wedding. Janet was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Stockton, and Earl was the son of Mrs. and Mrs. Enoch S. Johnsen. Miss Williams relied on the popular custom of announcing her engagement to her sorority sisters by passing around a decorated box of chocolates at a sorority meeting. (TNT 1/14/1951, pg. D-3)
