Cochise Hotel, Cochise, AZ, May 29, 2006

In 1917 my grandmother Julia Rockfellow met a young man on the steps of the Cochise Hotel. Her father didn't want to introduce her and told her he was "some Eastern chap from Harvard." Her brother Philip arrived late for his train and in his hurry his suitcase fell open with everything falling out. The young Harvard chap (Allan G. Waite) sprang to help repack and the introduction followed. Of course Allan proceeded to court Julia. He had lots of competition! Allan eventually proposed to her here, at the same place they had met.
