Born in France

A Nice Section of Paris

"...always proud of being the seventh arrondissement."

"I was born in Paris, France.

My father was a salesman for a fabric company, and they made dresses out of those fabrics, and curtains and things, and my mother was a— I guess you’d call her a housewife.

I was born in 1934, and I grew up in a nice section of Paris in France—in Paris, they have what they call arrondissements, which are zones, and I—we lived in one of the better ones. They were always proud of being the seventh arrondissement.

So we grew up there and I didn’t go to school much there. I don’t remember going to any school, ’cause I was four years old when we talked about coming to the U.S."
