Miss Miriam Thomas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Seth Thomas became the bride of Charles A. Collins of Chicago, Ill., Sunday morning, July 30, in a simple ceremony performed in the home of the bride's parents, 516 High avenue east. The Rev. J. Stewart Brown, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, read the single ring ceremony to the presence of the immediate families of the couple. Attired in a street costume of white silk jersey, Miss Thomas and Mr. Collins took their places before an improvised altar of palms and ferns artistically arranged with garden flowers and tapers in tall candelabra. The bride carried a colonial bouquet of tea roses. Immediately following the ceremony a breakfast was served at Canary Cottage to the wedding party which included the bridegroom's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Bruner of Rockford, Ill., and the Reverend and Mrs. Brown. The bride attended Parsons college for two years, completing her work at the University of Iowa where she affiliated with Gamma Phi Beta sorority. For the past three years she has been a member of the secretarial staff of the University of Chicago. Mr. Collins is the son of Mr. and Mrs. H.P. Collins of Anaconda, Monts. He received his Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Chicago in 1937 and will receive his M.A. degree in August. He and his bride are honeymooning in Canada at Lake Louise and Banff. Before returning to Chicago in September, Mr. and Mrs. Collins will be the guest of his parents at their summer home near Anaconda. (source unknown, likely the Oskaloosa Herald; no date).
