Laura and I spent the fall of 1960 bantering about the upcoming presidential election. Both freshman at Texas Lutheran College, we discovered that we shared an interest in politics, though from opposite sides. As we poked and jostled one another, I saw that Laura was bright, beautiful and determined. Our mutual friends said we were a mismatch. But I knew we were possible for each other, and was sure of it on the morning of Nov. 9 when, on my way to breakfast, I heard her voice from a group of women say: “Oh no, here he comes.” — John Canuteson
