From the column "Personal Brevities" in the Berkeley Daily Gazette on this day in 1937:

Will Tour Europe

Miss Effie Burton, who has been visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Burton on University Avenue, left last week for Chicago and will go from there to New York where she will sail on the "Queen Mary" for a trip to Europe. She will visit with an uncle and aunt in Dublin, Ireland. Miss Burton is a concert singer and has several engagements to sing abroad.

After her tour, she will return home to Berkeley to make her home.
