  • Notes 
    • In 1914, Marguerite's mother became blind, so she and her sisters pooled their resources and she and her mother travelled to San Francisco to see an eye doctor. The doctor told them that her mother had cataracts. On the steamer on the way home to Tahiti, Marguerite met Scudder Mersman, who had just graduated from Yale. He had been visiting his Yale roommate in Hawaii, a fellow named Dole.
