Hall’s Friends

Hall was a friendly guy who met a lot of people as he traveled along. Here is what we know about some of them.

John Wright Lippincott—Jack was Hall’s first cousin, the son of Hall’s father’s brother Isaac Lippincott, Professor of Economics at Washington University (St. Louis) and the author of a number of riveting, well-received texts such as A History of Manufactures of the Ohio Valley to the Year 1860 (1914), Problems of Reconstruction (1916), and A Century and a Half of Fur Trade at St. Louis (1916). Jack was a couple years older than Hall. He received his M.A. in Economics and Psychology from Washington University. We know almost nothing about him except that he was a very active and keen amateur magician and that his wife Marie choked to death on a piece of meat.  “Jack” Lippincott was the inventor of the Lippincott Box.

Jack began the trip with Hall, biking up to Dunfermline, Scotland with him to visit their cousins, but selling his bike there and traveling by train to London and then Paris. Hall left him in Paris to continue his trip. Hall gives us almost no information about Jack other than recording that he was in one place or another at the same time that Hall was and that he had a date with Ruth Goldstein in Paris. Also, “when nearly back to the hotel, Jack saw a blonde in a cafe, so we had to go in there for him. This time we bought mugs of beer—except Jack.”

Hall and Jack bicycled up to Dunfermline, Scotland, to visit Dr. and Mrs. George Robertson and their daughter Mairi. Eleanor Robertson was Jack’s aunt. Dr. Robertson died in August 1930 of a heart ailment. Mairi married Alan R. Fraser of Austin, Texas, in 1931.

While Hall and Jack were sightseeing in London, they ran into Milton Beckstein, a fraternity brother of Jack’s at Washington University in St. Louis. Milt also turned up in Paris, on his way to Hamburg to catch a boat back home, wherever that was. Here’s an interesting link that might point to the right guy: Milton Beckstein’s house?

In Berlin, Hall ran into a Columbus, Ohio boy, F. Dale Pontius, who was starting a term at the University of Berlin. Dale wound up in Chicago, Professor of Political Science at Roosevelt University and was heavily involved in Chicago’s active birding community at the same time that Hall lived in the area and was getting really interested in birding. I suppose both were unaware that the other was so close, but suspect that it wouldn’t have mattered as they had little else in common. But it’s a small world indeed—a close birding friend of ours knew both Hall and Dale and of course had no means of connecting the dots.

It’s really hard to know where to begin writing about Madame Blanche Corelli—or where to end. She’s been a part of our lives since my brother and I were old enough to remember her name. She wasn’t the reason the whole family was nuts for opera, but it didn’t hurt to know that this was her life, her livelihood, in the end her salvation. Her beautiful shawl is tucked away in a drawer in my house—my brother is the custodian of some five dozen letters that Mme wrote to Hall between their chance meeting at Deutsche Bank in Berlin, September 21, 1928 and 1939 when the letters stopped coming. Here’s what Hall had to say about that day: “Today I spent in rather an unexpected manner. After going to the Am.Exp. to change some money, I went to the Deutsch Bank to cash my check. An old lady heard me speaking English, asked if I was an American, and we chatted a few minutes during the wait. Before I had left she had given me her card and asked me to have soup with her at two. I accepted.” You can read the rest if you go to that and the subsequent several days in the journals.  Hall and Mme had lunch at the Tiergarten with  “Mrs. Hartock (he also wrote it as Tilly Harbog) of Berlin, one of the very rich women of Berlin.”

We plan to research as much as we can about Blanche Corelli, but in the meantime here is a postcard she gave Hall in Berlin. “This is my class—taken at my home on my 60th birthday. Please remember the few happy hours and always remain as chaste and good as you are today! Your motherly friend, Madame Blanche Corelli.” Mme is seated at the piano. Mme Corelli now has her own web site: http://corelli/halllippincott.info/

In Prague, October 2, 1928, Hall shared a room at the YMCA with Paul Paulus, from Little Falls, New York, who was studying violin at the Conservatory there. They didn’t spend long together, but Hall documented the encounter with a photo, pasting it into his journal months later. He sometimes filled empty spaces that way. The only likely mention of a Paul Paulus on the web who might be the same guy is found in a listing of the cast for Ripples, a 1930 musical comedy by Oscar Levant and Albert Sirmay.

In Vienna, October 8, Hall looks up a friend of Mme Corelli, Herr Schab, one of the owners of the Promenaden Café, which was located next to the Hotel Linke. Apparently all this is gone now. Hall had to pay for his own cup of coffee when he stopped in to say hello. That was a rare expense for him.

On  November 6–7, Hall made the acquaintance of a fellow traveler, George Nakashima. “J’y ai recontré un garçon américan, Geo. Nakashima, qui demeure à Seattle et étudie l’architecture. Nous avons passé une nuit sans repos sur le pont pasce que l’apparence des lits était terrible.” Far as I can figure, they spent the night on the bridge of the ferry that was taking them from Naples to Palermo, Sicily because there were bedbugs or worse in the beds to which they were entitled. “George et moi nous sommes promenadés autour de la ville, visitant la cathédrale intéressant. Alors après manger de spagetti nous avons courru pour le bateau et quelques moments aporès, il a fait voile à la Tunisie.” Hall comments under a photo: “George only stayed a half day. He went on with the ship to Tunis.”  Information about George is easy to come by on the web—he was one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design and a father of the American Craft Movement. I wonder if Hall knew that, but doubt it. Here is his web site.

We might not have this story if Hall hadn’t decided to give up writing his journal in French on November 27, for that day he was on a train bound for Milan from Switzerland. “At Lugano a huge crowd was cheering some person who got in the car ahead of me. At each station a huge crowd would always be waiting to cheer him. The people were very excited. Not to be left out, between two stations when the battle to be near him had subsided a bit, I asked him to sign my passport which he did. A young man, nice looking, with a sense of humor. I cannot read his signature, but later found out that he was returning from the North Pole, an Italian.” I am no longer hopeful that this fellow was Umberto Nobile—the first person to reach (i.e., fly over) the North Pole uncontested. Peary and Cook mixed it up so badly that no one save their ghosts will ever know the truth, although odds are that both of their overwhelming egos allowed them to fib. Nobile (January 21, 1885 – July 30, 1978) was an Italian aeronautical engineer and Arctic explorer. He was a developer and promoter of semi-rigid airships during the Golden Age of Aviation between the two World Wars. He is primarily remembered for designing and piloting the airship Norge, which may have been the first aircraft to reach the North Pole, and which was indisputably the first to fly across the polar ice cap from Europe to America. Nobile also designed and flew the Italia, a second polar airship; this second expedition ended in a deadly crash and provoked an international rescue effort.

I have compared all of the signatures in Hall’s passport (see this page) with this one (scroll to bottom of that page) from a reputable autograph dealer, but can’t find a match. In that case, I have to conclude the nice-looking young man was one of Nobile’s rescued crew. Bummer, but the asking price for the autograph was only $25, so it’s OK.

On December 7, on the train to Nice, France: “…an Abbe  started a conversation with me. Got his name and address in the old passport. Stanislas and the last name is Vach or Curé Le Brusc par Tours, Var. Not only a good church man but a well enough known painter to have his name in the guide books and to sell 45 in England for £4 per.” (see this page) No big deal as he didn’t make the Internet, but that’s a good price for those paintings.

The American Vice-Consul in Lisbon, Portugal—Prescott Childs, a “dandy young fellow”—introduced Hall to the Condessa de Castanheiro, who showed him around Sintra, Portugal, one of his favorite spots so far. The Internet won’t readily cough up information about the condessa, but Childs went on to a career with the State Department, and was Chief of COAPS in 1950, whatever that is—I think it’s spook-related because CIA appears in the same sentence.

On December 22 in Seville, Hall met a Spanish professor of history, who turned out to be a seriously absent-minded professor more than a help: Cabello Pedro Larrión del Arco. He promised more than he could deliver, but still tried to be a friend to a traveler. He’s googleable, but it’s not worth the effort.

Hall reached Gibraltar—which he never did learn to spell correctly—on Christmas Day, 1928 and wasn’t able to bust loose from there until January 23. I can’t find mention of any of most of the people he met there, but in sum their friendship was one of the highlights of his journey. He first met Rev. John BrownSmith, St. Andrews Presbyterian Church (Hall reports it as Scottish Presbyterian).

Next was the American Consul, Richard L. Sprague. Cool link, but I don’t know the year offhand!

G.G. Hahan, Ph.D. in Medicine at Edinburgh, and his companion M.L. Miller, who was traveling to study architecture.

A British couple on holiday catapulted Hall into the social scene. They are Mr. and Mrs. Yarde (Alfred and ??), London. Their son Russell was about 14 at the time; Hall doesn’t mention him being there, although he appears in the photo (which Hall did not take). Mr. Yarde’s birthday is January 10. He worked for Eastern Telegraph Company. He was an excellent photographer and was working on an article on the cork woods of southern Spain that he planned to submit to National Geographic for publication. That’s all I know.

Through the Yardes and the pastor, Hall met Dr. and Mrs. Bailey (C.J. and Belle) and Belle’s sister from London, Mrs. Kathleen Nelson (Kath). Best of all, the Baileys had three lovely children, Kathleen (7½) and twins Betty and Johnny (2). Dr. Bailey also worked for Eastern Telegraph Company.

The other Gibraltar people are Mr. Merrick; Miss Culvert (a doctor); Miss Collier; Dr. Brown of the Methodist Church, a wealthy bachelor; Sir Sidney and Lady Nettleton, Gib’s judge; Captain Anderson, the attorney general; and Grace Bird. When Hall spent a couple days in Tangiers he was guided around by Mrs. Sammet of Boston, 59 years old and traveling alone. She looks like Mary Poppins, but what a lot of courage she had!

Just before Hall leaves The Rock, he runs into Delano Ames and Maysie Greig, a husband-and-wife team of authors who are traveling around in their Europe in their Austin, gathering inspiration.

One of those close friendships that ended too quickly happened next on the S.S. Ormond from Gibraltar to Port Said, Egypt: Jim Speight, originating from near Preston, England, emigrating to Australia; a joiner and mechanic, a good piano player.

At Cook’s in Cairo, February 6, 1929, Hall met William Warden from Akron, Ohio, who had been traveling west to east for 14 months.

February 9 in Jerusalem: Morton Hartman and Frank Marion Aldridge, “who have been traveling as I have, on a bike, through Europe and across the northern part of Africa.” Mort was writing articles for the Greenville (South Carolina) News, and Frank did the same for the Tulsa World, his hometown paper. For probably the same reason that Hall doesn’t include his parents’ address in his journal’s address book, he gives us almost no information about Mort and Frank. But, thanks to a thoughtful and alert lady sifting through eBay’s offerings–and her timely email to me–we were able to get fuzzy glimpses of Frank’s five scrapbooks that were being sold in an estate auction (March 2011). Turns out that Mort had been “adopted” by the Aldridge family when Frank was a young boy. When they embarked on their 2½-year round-the-world odyssey in 1928, Frank was 16, Mort 29.  Mort was in the merchant marine during WWII. Frank married about the same time Hall did and had five children, but Mort remained a wanderer. Such is the power of the Internet that we have learned anything more about these men other than what Hall experienced.

In Port Said, Hall was approached by Jak Abou el Houda, who worked for Lloyd Triestimo which was located across the road from Hall’s hotel. During Ramadan it was apparently necessary for the rich to feed the poor, so Jak chose Hall, given the latter’s visibly poor lifestyle. Jak brought Hall oranges and other food; made cocoa for him frequently; included him in his circle of friends and helped him to learn about Egyptian politics, Egyptians in general, and Islam. Jak’s leg had been shot off during the war.

In Luxor, March 12, Hall meets Harna Fam, Secretary of the YMCA at Assint, who has two degrees from the University of Chicago.

Another Luxor acquaintance is W. Dreiss, a wacky German who owns/manages? the Thebes Hotel. This fellow is an antiquities thief and Hall’s account of his strange behavior makes for interesting reading.

In stark contrast to Dreiss is Ahmad Yousef, who spots Hall trying to find a little shade in Assint and offers refreshments along with a healthy dose of self-praise: “Ahmad Yousef proved a very entertaining host. He is an artist, poet, author of ten books on art and including one on marriage, and at the time is working for the government in the excavations, restoring ruins of temples, etc. To quote him: ‘I am the most wonderful artist in Egypt.'” And he might have been. He gave Hall a number of good photos of daily life in Egypt. Hall said that Yousef was 25 when they met and that he was working for the government on restoration of the ruins. This link might be as close as we can come to someone who published in Arabic.

Hall, Mort, and Frank attracted a lot of attention as they traveled through India together, not the least because of their odd choices of clothing. Their first friend was Rao Saheb Raja Narpat Singhji, Comptroller of the Household and Private Secretary to Major His Highness Maharaja Sir Umed Singh Bahadur. Narpat’s father was a famous Major General during the war. He put his limo at the boys’ disposal, treating them to sightseeing rides around Jodhpur, followed by dinner at Raikabagh Palace. They were invited to accompany the Maharaja’s party to a location near Lahore where they would participate in a 10-day hike through the mountains. He gave them a letter of introduction to the Minister of Jaipur, and when Narpat met them again at Jaipur, he invited them into the maharajah’s private train for dinner, overlooking their appearance: “Some ritz for we bums, all dirty, hair uncombed, and unshaved.” In their defense, they had just spent two days on trains, sleeping on station benches.

On May 6 in Delhi, Hall meets two Cincinnati boys: Jack Martin who goes to Penn and Burt Wallenstein who went to Ohio State for 1½ years—until 1928. They had started in January, traveling west to east.

Hall, Frank, and Mort’s hosts on Xanadu, the Srinagar houseboat in Kashmir, were related: Abdulla Dand and Lussoo Dand. They must have kept in touch, for Hall notes in his photo album that Lussoo died in 1931.

In Amritsar, India, on June 12, an amiable Scot, Walter Scott, treats the boys to dinner and shows them around town. He is an electrical engineer working for Westinghouse Electric in Patiala, the capital of the largest state in the Pubjab. He plans to marry in 1930 and teases the boys about their women.

After Hall separates from Mort and Frank, he checks in with the U.S. Consul in Madras, India, who takes him to a local hotel for an aperitif, where he meets a Beta Theta Pi named Winn, who must not have been memorable. Consul E.M. Montgomery, a bachelor, then offers Hall the cool refuge of his home for the afternoon, where he rested, read, bathed, and topped it off by taking part in a July 4th baseball game with 18 other Yanks.

It’s sometimes hard to reconcile name changes: On July 10 Hall meets Teddy Milne on board Hakusan Maru (Ceylon to Saigon), who morphs into Terry Milne when they have dinner together in Kobe, Japan on October 10. Let’s use his formal name, T. Murray Milne. Hall is envious: “On the 2nd class deck I met a boy about my age who was born and has spent ten years in Japan. He is English. Got tired of school at Leeds, so shipped off on a tramp steamer for a year and is now en route to Yokohama where he has what I call a darned good job. A chemical manufacturing company is training him for a year, paying him, and then he gets a position in the company. Every five years he gets a 6-months leave with full pay and passage money for a trip around the world. Rising in importance, the time is cut to 4 years, and finally three years when he becomes an officer.”

Hall  doesn’t sound thrilled about getting to know Samuel G. Ebling, the Vice-Consul at Penang, Straits Settlements on July 17: “He invited me for a ride this evening, all of which meant I had to go through the ordeal of getting dressed up a bit.” Ebling is listed in a handy web site, politicalgraveyard.com. He went on to serve in Bremen, Lourenco Marques, and Luanda. I had to look up those last two—Maputo, Mozambique and Angola, respectively.

Hall’s long stint in Saigon degenerated into sheer boredom after the couple of people he met there departed. Pete Funk, Berkeley, California, was in Saigon “to get a little first-hand dope on foreign trade before going back to college.” He offered to stow away Hall on his ship to Manila, but Hall couldn’t afford to leave Saigon without replenishing his coffers and the check was late. Pete’s friend Frank Gorham from Los Angeles was traveling with him.

In Hongkong on August 31 one of Hall’s roommates at the YMCA was Rev. Karl Ludvig Reichelt, a Catholic missionary from Norway.

A few days later in Canton, China: “My friends, Dr. and Mrs. J.F. Karcher of Pittsburgh with their two-year-old Jimmie were returning from the Philippines. They asked me to stay at their mission which I did, thus gaining a little insight on the life of missionaries.” (He had met these folks on the train from Kowloon to Canton.) Hackett Medical College was a self-supporting hospital and free clinic; New York University sponsored a degree program there. Hall also met Dr. Hoffman, head of the college, Mr. and Mrs. Sauer, the pharmacist, and Rev. and Mrs. Dungan, from Soochow near Shanghai, a 1922 Ohio State University graduate.

On September 4, Hall boarded the Linan in Hongkong, bound for Shanghai. In Amoy the ship picked up several passengers: John R. Putnam, the American Consul who went on to serve in Hongkong and Florence; Harold de Pree, 12 years old and attending the American School in Shanghai (his sister’s obit tells part of the his story anyway); the three Boot sisters, all painfully shy; Mary Bosch and Jean Strick, two more students.

In Shanghai, Hall is collected at the dock by Mr. G. Robertson Gow. (Hall had met Betty Gow and 4-year-old Elsbeth on the ship from Ceylon to Singapore.) The Gows and their friends wined, dined, and danced him for several nights until he complains “I’m fed on drinking. Every time you turn around someone has a drink or two for you. Good thing I turn down 50% or I’d be tipsy all the time.”

Mr. McNeil and Mr. Gow are both mates at the China Navigation Co.

Their friends were Mr. C.C. Cayne, “Director of the Central Fire Station . . . A Devonshire man, stout, red-headed, and full of fun and a good bit of the devil too. There isn’t a more generous person in Shanghai though.”  He has lived in China 16 years and boasts that his fire station has the fastest response time in the world.

Mr. Watkins, fat and jolly; has something to do with a branch fire station.

Mr. Suter, “. . . a tall awkwardly-built man with an overemphasized Will Rogers face. . . is a river pilot and had an N.Y.K. boat to take up the river at ten that same morning. I’d hate to be on the boat, but from all I hear and have seen, the pilots do better when drunk than sober.”

On September 19, at the Kobe, Japan, YMCA, Hall is assigned to share a room with William Cecil Headrick, a 24-year-old who had arrived in Japan a month earlier. Hall can’t get over meeting someone who has been able to travel far more economically than he has been doing: “He came across Russia and Siberia on the Trans-Siberian Railway (12-day trip to Europe $60) and has been in Japan about a month. Has come from Europe on $200, a remarkable achievement, done by sleeping with farmers and peasants, no hotels. He is an interesting talker and a student of conditions of these countries through which he has traveled and has the courage of his convictions to grow not only a mustache but a goatee. He is soon returning to Germany via Siberia to use a scholarship he has won, and I believe intends to lecture upon his return to the States.”

Hall and Cecil spend five days together—I urge you to read about their activities and discussions so I don’t need to pick and choose about what might have been important and what was not. Then you might like to find out exactly what happened to Cecil, one of the few people aside from Hall for whom we even have that information, thanks to both Google and Cecil’s grandson. Mark, who as a tribute to his grandfather, typed Cecil’s thesis into his word processor and constructed an impressive web site based on it. Mark’s regret is that Cecil died without knowing that his copy of the thesis wasn’t lost, but was squirreled away in an attic. My regret is that Hall died without knowing that his friend lived not so far away. What would they have talked about?? Here’s the link. Maybe that’s the curse of the Internet—confirming that an opportunity you never knew about, but was within your grasp, passed you by.

Just in case anyone is googling their Japanese grandfather, I’ll record that Hall appreciated the kindness and companionship of a Japan Tourist Bureau employee, Shiro Yoshioka, in Miyanoshita on October 6. Here’s his photo. On October 11, when Hall is on board the Asama Maru as it is pulling away from the dock at Yokohama: “For some reason I felt very sad. I was leaving the Orient behind. I heard someone call my name and discovered Shiro waving frantically on the dock. I felt less lonely now. He threw me a streamer. The din increased. Our streamer stretched, stretched—broke—and the last tie to the East was broken. The cheering grew fainter and soon Japan slipped down below the horizon.”

Aboard the Asama Maru, between Yokohama and Honolulu, Hall meets a few people that don’t figure in his story again, but they sound interesting: Victor Sheridan, from New York, an Ohio State man. Lively Doris K.G. Woods, 40, lives in Hongkong, was with British troops in China during the Great War; Captain and Mrs. Ambrose, a stout middle-aged Britisher, humorous, pleasant, always ready with a joke. He and Mrs. Ambrose (Scotch) have lived in China for 26 years (?) and he is official interpreter for the army. Their children are Anny 17, Winney 14, and Bobby 7. Doris is the only one with an address and that’s Hollywood.

In the homestretch Hall finds an old friend, Vance Rogers from Chicago who was in Honolulu finishing his last year of college. Hall mentions hearing from or writing to Vance several times throughout the trip—apparently good friends, but we don’t know more than that. Vance was living with his cousins, Edwina (Eddy) Embree and her brother John Fee Embree, both students at the university. They probably came from the Chicago area. John wrote articles for the Honolulu Mercury, a local magazine and went on to a short but distinguished career in anthropology, winding up as Director of Southeast Asia Studies at Yale University in 1950, the year he was killed in an accident.

Hall stayed at the YMCA in Honolulu, where he met Oscar Blanc, Ph.D., traveler and lecturer, middle-aged.  Also, Jimmy and Evelyn Cataline, newlyweds.

The last good friend Hall found was Horace Augustus “Slim” Knowles, a tall, boyish looking sailor from the Ethan Allan, with a fondness for marshmallows and practical jokes. Slim was from Shreveport and had left college after the first year to see a bit of the world. Too common a name to be certain what happened to him, but a long life is Florida seems right.

And that’s it. I think I remember meeting Frank Aldridge 65 years or so ago. Whatever happened to the rest of them? Maybe diligent googlers will provide some of the answers as they search for their relatives’ names.


On December 17, 1928, Hall records that he has received letters from 27 people, has written to 35, and corresponds with 18 of those 35 on a regular basis. He left home with 63 addresses neatly entered in his first journal, and added a dozen or so more as he went along. Each subsequent journal has many fewer carryover addresses in it, but new ones have been collected higgledy-piggledy—on the end-covers, upside-down, scrawled with notes or drawings, and a few in Hall’s passport. All of those addresses are included here just in case someone googles a name and finds Hall’s web site.
