August 7, 1915 [LAH]: “Yachting Party. One of the most delightful of the week-end parties planned for the younger set is that which George Hugh Banning will give aboard the Banning yacht Campañero [sic]. The affair will be a "stag" party, and about twenty young friends of the host are to enjoy the occasion. Mr. Banning will leave September 3 for Berkeley to resume his studies, but Hancock Banning, Jr. will not leave until later for Cornell University. He also will entertain with a farewell affair before his departure.”
