Today in 1923: Sandar Din and his bride, Berilla Nutter, get married at sea outside California’s three-mile limit. Both Sutter and Contra Costa counties have refused the mixed-race couple a marriage license.
The state’s county clerks often apply anti-miscegenation laws to Punjabi men, even though they fall into the Caucasian category. Consequently, couples must travel to other states or find an imaginative way to wed.
It’s today’s Action Calendar!
