This chapter takes a look at Olive Graham, the daughter of John W. Graham and Alexander's wife. It describes their first meeting until Alexander's cool marriage proposal, and looks at the letters they sent in 1917, which shows that they were both in the process of discovering ‘the real me’. From there, the discussion moves on to Alexander's enthusiasm with regard to his fiancé, his grief over the death of his brother Christopher and his transfer to Cranbook School as the editor of the school magazine. The chapter ends with a section on the marriage of Alexander and Graham.

Keywords:   Olive Graham, Cranbook School, editor, school magazine, Christopher Alexander, real me
