LIFE


Shields-Lathrop
A dispatch from London, England, to the Bridgeport Morning Union of Sept. 6, says: In Christ church, Woburn Square, to day, James Van Allen Shields, of the Columbia Phonograph Co., and Miss Roselle Lathrop, of Bridgeport, Conn., were married by the Rev. J. J. Glendenning Nash, vicar. Mr. Shields is a native of Washington, where he served an apprenticeship on the Evening Star, and he has been with the Columbia Phonograph Co. in St. Louis, Bridgeport, and finally in this city, where his position is one of the greatest importance. Miss Lathrop is a native of Bridgeport and is well-known as a teacher of languages. She is the daughter of the late James Clark Lathrop, an eminent American geologist. Among those who were present at the wedding to-day was Miss Adele Lathrop, of the New York Normal College, sister of the bride, who is just completing a European tour. She sails for America to-morrow. Mr. and Mrs. Shields will spend their honeymoon on the continent. (in: The Music Trade Review of .. Sep 1900, p. 20)
