July 8, 1941: I thought it would be fun to check in with our old pals, Lee Shippey, Tom Treanor and Jimmie Fidler.

Lee writes about visiting researchers spending their summers at the Huntington. That’s my idea of a vacation!

Tom, meanwhile, notes L.A.’s annual cycle of destruction:  “I listened to a typical terror item yesterday about the scourge of the carelessly thrown away cigarette. It seems it’s to be an even greater hazard this year. The rains have been so heavy that the underbrush is extra thick and extra inflammable. We’re just one big tinderbox. Look out.”

Garbo and Gayelord Hauser have been taking daily walks in the Brentwood hills, and daily they wind up at the same place — a little Catholic church, Jimmie Fidler says.
