Wedding of the Year – 1938

Doug Humes, Attorney, Writer and Lecturer

November 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

$15 / person

In 2003, Doug Humes began leasing space for his law office in an old Bryn Mawr mansion.  His curiosity about the original owners, the Jacobs, sent him on a quest to find their story, and over the years he collected photos, genealogy, and stories on the family, and finally the Holy Grail was delivered to his office – a two volume set of wedding photos from the 1938 wedding of daughter Louise Jacobs to dashing pilot Hubbard Phelps.  Humes took the photos and added music to create a wedding video.  He will give an introduction to the Jacobs family, followed by the 20-min. wedding video, and then tell about what happened to the principal players after that wedding day.

Come out and enjoy an actual “Philadelphia Story!

Doug Humes is an attorney, writer and lecturer and has been involved in various capacities with the Newtown Square Historical Society for 25+ years, and currently serves on the Marple Township Historical Commission and the Delaware County Heritage Commission.
