London 1977

The Journals

This blog was written 45 years ago, before "blog" was even a thought. In 1977 Dr. Tom Gasque, an English professor at the University of South Dakota took a semester sabbatical and moved to London England with his wife Dr. Alice Gasque, also an English professor at USD and their daughter Susanna, age 4. That's me. 

Several years ago, i decided to transcribe the 3 handwritten journals that Dad religiously kept on our adventure. I realized that if I waited until 2022, I could push these journal entries out as a daily blog and the days of the week would match! I also realized that the slides that I had digitized for my parents corresponded with entries in the journal. 

I hope you enjoy this retrospective journey!
