Pacific Grove Tide, CA Feb. 2, 1940
Miss Dulfer Weds William Howell Jr.
Pacific Grove friends of Miss Dorothy Dulfer of San Francisco and Carmel and William A. Howell Jr. of Bakersfield will be interested to learn of their marriage January 24 at Our Lady’s Chapel in the Presidio of San Francisco. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Reverend Father E.E. McDonald, retired chaplain and captain in the U.S. Navy and the Reverend Father William A. Hanley, S.J., celebrated the mass. The bride was given in marriage by her father, Alexander Dulfer. Miss Imelda Dulfer was her sister’s bridesmaid and sole attendant and the bride’s brother, Paul Dulfer, was the best man. The bride’s dress was an imported Vionnet model of douhte faced satin with a long train and V neckline, with built-up shoulder line and tight-fitting sleeves. A long veil fell from a coronet of orange blossoms. She carried a white satin prayer book with a marker of white satin streamers, lilies of the valley and butterfly orchids. The bridesmaid’s dress was a Balenciaga model in old rose slip per satin with a tight fitting basque bodice and full gathered skirt with bustle. A small hat of matching color completed the costume. She carried an old fashioned boquet with a center of yellow daffodils bordered with pale pink carnations and tied with satin ribbon. Owing to the illness of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Alexander Dulfer, the reception which was originally planned was cancelled.Only the immediate members of the two families were present at the ceremony and at the wedding breakfast at the Dulfer home. Following the breakfast the young couple left on a wedding trip to Californai resorts, a longer trip abandoned on account of Mrs. Dulfer’s illness. Mrs. Howell is a member of one of San Francisco’s most prominent families and well known on the Monterey Peninsula. Mr. Howell, a Bakersfield graduate, is the son of one Kern county’s oldest and best known families. He is a graduate of Stanford University.
