When they decided to make California their home they had no preconceived idea of which city they would choose. They motored here from Cleveland, Ohio, where they had been making their home, and leisurely traveled the length of the state, visiting in many towns and cities in search of the one they liked best. When they finally arrived in Long Beach they both knew this was their favorite and promptly settled here. Mr. Robinson was active in the real estate business for many years and Mrs. Robinson was well known in club and church circles. In 1942 they took over management of the Dolly Varden Hotel, continuing in that work until retirement in 1949. Although the Robinsons, have no children they are both from large families. He was one of 13 children and she of 10. Present with them for the anniversary celebration were Mrs. Mae Atkins, a high school classmate of Mrs. Robinson's from Shortridge High, Indianapolis, class of 1S98, and Mrs. Claude Anderson, a classmate and sorority sister of Mrs. Robinson's from Franklin College in Franklin, Ind., class of 1903.
