      Claire Cochrane’s films of her husband, Cleland, and children, Jean and Cleland show her family at leisure as the children grow from infancy to maturity and include Jean’s graduation from Stoneleigh School, Greenfield, Ma, and subsequent marriage. The men go off to war and we see scenes at Camp Mead. Their summer vacations of swimming, fishing and canoeing and watching skipjack boat races in the lakes of Maine are depicted, along with rollerskating, pony rides – even a ride in a goat-pulled cart – and a school circus with kids dressed as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. About 1933 the new Dodge coupe is proudly shown off in the snow. Sports depicted include harness racing and a father and son baseball game at Englewood School. A visit to historic Duxbury shows the Myles Standish grave and monument and at Plymouth, the rock, inscribed “1620” and the statue of Massasoit.
