Josephine Grant to Wed Capt. McCreer
An engagement announcement from Carmel links the names of two prominent members fo the social set, Miss Josephine D. Grant and Capt. Selby McCreery. Miss Grant is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph D. Grant of 2200 Broadway. Her debut in 1919 was one of the major social events in San Francisco in the past two decades, marked with an elaborate ball at the St. Francis Hotel, and later with a round of parties through San Francisco and Peninsula society. Six years later she was presented at the Court of St. James by Ambassador and Mrs. Alanson B. Houghton. Captain McCreery is a grandson of the late Andrew B. McCreery who came to the coast during the gold rush, and accumulated a tremendous fortune in mining properties and San Francisco real estate. He is the son of Mrs. Walter McCreery now living in Somersetshire, England. Captain McCreery has been in Del Monte for the past two weeks, heading a polo team in test matches. The announcement came as a surprise to most of their friends here. No date has been set for the wedding.
