Silent Cal the Groom


Grace Coolidge, before she married Calvin Coolidge, was a teacher at the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Massachusetts.  A party was held in honor of the young couple the evening before their marriage, but a friend of Grace arrived late and was not present at introductions.  She noticed a solitary individual looking lonely and apart from the conversation.  Inquiring about Calvin she asked, "Is that young man standing there by himself in the corner one of your pupils?"
