A Bunch Of Swells


From The Montreal Gazette on this day in 1937:

Queen Mary With 2,000

Carrying a capacity list of over 2,000 passengers, the Cunard White Star flagship Queen Mary sails from New York today at noon for Europe. A theatrical contingent will be aboard, including Beatrice Lille (Lady Peel); Madeleine Carroll, English film star, and her husband, Captain Philip Ashley; Sonja Henie, former amateur fancy-skating champion of the world and now in motion pictures; Raymond Massey, the Canadian-born actor; Hunt Stromberg, producer for M.G.M.

Others sailing include Archie San Romani, U.S. distance runner, and his bride, Lena Plumley, on a honeymoon trip to Sweden; Sir Bede Clifford, former Governor of Bermuda, with Lady Clifford, en route to the island of Mauritius, where Sir Bede will act as Governor of the colony; George Cotterall of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, and Mrs. Cotterall.
