Eleanor Laurie McCawley Thebaud (1899‒1980) was the wife of Leo Hewlett Thebaud (1890‒1980), a Vice Admiral in the American Navy. The couple was married in May 1921. Was this their engagement photo or was it taken on their honeymoon in La Malbaie? It’s quite possible, since the Thebauds had a summer home there.
