On November 22, 1927, the grand-niece of Jane Addams was married at her home in Girard, Kansas. Josephine Haldeman-Julius, the daughter of Marcet and Emanuel Haldeman-Julius, was joined in a “companionate” union to Aubrey Clay Roselle. The couple’s marriage was a rather sudden one, given their decision to marry only solidified a few months prior. Even by early twentieth century standards in the United States, the couple was considered rather young to marry. Josephine Haldeman-Julius was only just completing her last year of high school, while Roselle was working on his second year at the University of Kansas.
