Harriet “Flip” Price was a steady date of Jack’s during his three months auditing classes at Stanford in the fall of 1940. Flip was slim, attractive, intelligent and had many beau vying for her attention. But, she was smitten with the charismatic suitor from Harvard:
“I like Jack immediately. He was very attractive, tall and slim, sparkly and, I guess, Irish-looking. And fun. But, he always had a serious side , too. His book was out. He gave me a copy. We used to go to L’Omelette, a French place, and Dinah’s Shack, a steak house and bar with a fireplace. Or to the hotels in San Francisco for dinner and dancing.
