Below, Bill and Maxine Butler, with Paul H Weaver near Red Wing MN. The Butler's were friends of Peg and Pete Weavers from Minneapolis. Peg's best Oberlin friend, Jane Randle Banks introduced them as she met them at a retail school in New York City, where they had all studied after college graduation. The Butlers, according to Peg Weaver in her memoir, p 37 "For the summer the Butlers had moved to a cottage in Deep Haven on Lake Minnetonka, where we drove to meet them. Being most hospitable, they served cognac, which we had never tasted before and could hardly swallow. Maxine and Bill's old car was named "Petunia". Through the cracks of the floor boards, I could see the pavement rolling by.
One evening we skated on the little lake in Loring Park near our Minneapolis apartment, becoming hysterical over our many spills. With Maxine and Bill we drove to Ladysmith, Wisconsin, to spend a weekend with Maxine's parents, when we saw our first storm-windowns. The Butler and Weavers became very good friends and for several years spent Thanksgivings together, alternating between Minneapolis and Faribault. The Butlers introduced us to Bernie Street an intern at a different Minneapolis hospital. After Pete was practicing in Faribault, he ran into Bernie at a Rice County Medical Society meeting when Bernie was practicing in Northfield, fifteen miles away."
