    Marriage Certificate from the Parish of The Church of the Transfiguration - Arthur Emil Mickelsen and Carolyn Elizabeth Ray
    Marriage Certificate from the Parish of The Church of the Transfiguration - Arthur Emil Mickelsen and Carolyn Elizabeth Ray
    According to the Church's website, "It was in 1870 that Joseph Jefferson was rebuffed in arranging for the funeral of his friend, George Holland, an actor. Told that there was a little church around the corner where 'they do that sort of thing,' Jefferson fervently exclaimed, 'God Bless the Little Church Around the Corner' and that famous benediction has echoed down through the years. This brought about a close relationship with the people of the theater which has continued to this day. Because of our work in the Church and Theater, the Church of the Transfiguration was designated a United States Landmark in 1973. This romantic history has brought many people to have their marriage vows solemnized at the altars of the Church and today members of the 'Family of the Little Church Around the Corner,' resulting from such marriages, are to found in fifty states and numerous countries." http://www.littlechurch.org/history.html

    In his early teens Arthur worked in the Nash auto factory and then for the Kenosha Evening News as a "cub" reporter. The editor took a liking to him and asked if he would like to go to a school that paid him. Arthur said, "Sure!" He'd dropped out of high school so he had to study for his GED and pass the entrance exam for West Point. He passed, and entered West Point in July 1916.

    The Mickelsen Family - Honolulu - 1936
    According to Carolyn Wilkinson, "We were on our way to the Philippines --- the Eisenhower family was on board our ship --- and had a stopover in Hawaii for a day. We went to the top of the Pali and I even remember a trip on a glass bottom boat in Kaneohe Bay! We were sent home to the States in 1938 because of rumblings of war with Japan. My father, then a major in the Signal Corps, was sent to Chicago to work with Automatic Electric to buy equipment for the Army."
