Wordless Wednesday: Fearless Female Gerrie Guokas and Her Date to the Dance

Above left:  Mom and her date, Richard Owen "Dick" Cato, at the Ford House dance on December 18, 1945.  Dick was from Beaumont, Texas, and a member of the University of Texas at Austin tennis team.  He was also a member of Delta Sigma Pi, an international commerce and business administration fraternity. The photo above right is from page 553 of the 1946 Cactus, the University of Texas yearbook.  Former Texas Governor Miriam Amanda Ferguson, a family friend, also made an appearance at this dance.
