Philpott, Mr./Mrs. Lacey (Eastern Trip - 1955)


Mr. and Mrs. Lacey Philpott have returned from a seven week visit at the home of their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Philpott, in Falmouth, which is on Cape Cod, Mass.  Falmouth is near the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, where Delbert Philpott is an electron microscopist.


A graduate of the Omro High School, Oshkosh State College, and Syracuse University, Delbert Philpott received his master’s degree at the University of Illinois.  He worked for a few years in Chicago University before going to the laboratory at Woods Hole.  His laboratory is at the Institute for Muscle Research where he studies muscles and writes up his experiments.  The half-ton Electron Microscope that eh operates stands 6 feet tall and cost $20,000.  It uses electrons instead of ordinary light and magnifies up to 200,000 times.


While away, the Lacey Philpotts visited the Whale Museum at New Bedford, Mass., where they saw the whale that weighed 90 ton, a complete whaling boat made in miniature design just as it was ready to go out on a two year trip, and many articles hand carved from whalebone. 


They visited Plymouth Rock and also saw a Historical Society collection of furniture used by the early American settlers.


On Oct. 12 they attended Open House at a cranberry canning factory at Onset, mass., and saw Ocean Spray cranberries cleaned and canned.


At Brockton they attended a dog show, at which to of their sons purebred, parti-colored, cocker spaniels won blue ribbons.
