TED HUGGINS DIARY ENTRY
"The SF World's Fair 'ground-breaking' ceremonies were held today in a driving rainstorm. I went with the official delegation to the Dredger 'A McKenzie' hove to on the Yerba Buena Shoals. There I photographed the releasing of a hold full of sand which signalled the start of construction of the World's Fair which is scheduled to open on Feb 18th 1939.
About 100 of us who participated in the ceremonies were drenched by the storm.
After lunch I went to the City Hall for further World's Fair financing research.
Tonight at Euclid Ave, we the heirs met to arrange distribution of the furniture. Our principal acquisition was the Hall Clock. Dorothy and Mildred will take the bulk of the furniture."
