The San Franciscans: Higbie-Briggs
Lee and Bette Higbie-Briggs became instant San Franciscans when they were the first couple married at "the new" City Hall. Mister SF received a lovely note from Bette who, with her large gray hat, looked like Kees Van Dongen's "Portrait of Dolly" on her wedding day. "Lee and I felt surrounded by friends," Bette says, "because San Franciscans attending opening day ceremonies were so welcoming, and shared our joy. It is indeed possible for two people from other regions - DC and Anchorage - to join here and become enveloped in the love that makes San Francisco the City of Hearts."
