When John and June Warren went on their honeymoon, they would later call their vacation spot “home.” Los Alamos is more than just the place where John started his career at the laboratory or the location of June’s Montessori school, Ponderosa Montessori (formerly Sage Montessori). Los Alamos marks the beginning of their marriage.
Fifty years later, as John and June celebrated their anniversary June 7 with friends, their daughters, their granddaughter and several cousins, they reminisced about the start of their life together.
John and June met at the University of Maryland, where John was studying for his Ph.D. in solid state physics, and June was working a degree in art history.
A teacher recommended to John that he go to Los Alamos because he could get a good job. Plus, John said, he was excited about the work that was being done at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Looking back to the mid-1950s, John said he remembers as a graduate student barely being able to trudge up the hill every day in an old 1950 Chevrolet car.
