Editor’s Note: As luck would have it, on the fateful day of September 17, 1993, I happened to be able to drive from Paris with Jean Gwinn and Myriam Riboud to Cancale on France’s Brittany coast. They were closing their purchase of a summer home for their growing family. After visiting the Nortary Public in Cancale, we stopped by their purchase, Montcalm House, at 2 Rue des Rimains. There Jean Gwinn and Myriam finished discussing details with the seller and her daughter and Jean Gwinn immediately took symbolic ownership by fixing a broken light fixture.
