Berkeley to M.I.T.

In 1924 my Great Uncle Harold Washburn and his friend Dean Smith went from California to Massachusetts. Uncle Harold had gotten his bachelors degree from the University of California at Berkeley and was headed to M.I.T. for graduate work. All I know about Dean Smith is what you see in the pictures.

Uncle Harold had a good camera with him and assembled the resulting pictures and his log into a scrap book. These web pages are arranged to reproduce the ones he laid out.

The trip took thirty days. Uncle Harold records that they covered 3540 until their speedometer chain broke outside Buffalo, New York.
