Submitted by Kelsey Chase July 12, 2009 As a summer intern in a city full of unique opportunities and rare experiences I have made every effort to make the best of my stay in Washington DC.

Hal, the only surviving son of Gladys and Benjamin H. Lehman, was born at home in Boston on May 18, 1918 during the post-WW I flu epidemic.

As a result of the divorce Hal spent a lot of time on trains between northern and southern California, spending one year with his father in Berkeley and the next with his mother in Toluca Lake. That arrangement continued until he was 16, when he decided to stay in southern California closer to most of his friends. Graduating from North Hollywood High, he went on to UC Berkeley WWII was on the horizon and he joined the Army in 1940. A good portion of the next five years were spent in the South Pacific theater.
