Redstone, Camilla Marie (Marriage - 1945)

Mrs. G. E. Griffiths and her daughter, Mrs. Norma Clayton, Milwaukee, attended the wedding of Major Robert E. Griffiths and Miss Camilla Marie Redstone, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Redstone, recently, in Cranston, a suburb of Providence, R. I.

The marriage took place at a ceremony performed at 8:30 in the morning.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white faille taffeta, styled with a hoop skirt. Net ruching edged the yoke of the gown and short sleeves as well as the mitts which she wore as part of her ensemble. She wore a finger tip veil and carried a Colonial bouquet of white button chrysanthemums and pink Delight roses.

Miss Louise Tufts, as maid of honor, wore a jade green moiré taffeta gown, designed similar to the bride’s. She carried a Colonial bouquet of pompons and wore a head piece of chrysanthemums.

Capt. Schuyler Owen, A.U.S., who served overseas with the bridegroom, was best man. Ushers were Paul Jacobson, a college class mate of the bridal couple, and Capt. F. Winfield Trice, who also served in the E.T.O. with the bride groom.

Major Griffiths, who is the son of the Rev. and Mrs. G. E. Griffiths, has returned from 32 months duty in Africa and Italy and is on terminal leave. Both the bride and groom were graduated from St. Olaf’s College, Northfield, Minn. The bride received the degree of master of science in biology in June at Brown University.

The couple will reside in Chicago.
