European Travel: Converted Amalfi Coast monastery offers breathtaking views

AMALFI COAST, ITALY—On Tuesday, June 10, 1913, in Princeton’s Alexander Hall, Milton M. Brown took his diploma with all the assurance of a young man who knew where he was going in life. Plans were in the works to pursue his dream of becoming a travel lecturer on the Lyceum or Chautauqua circuits. His first set of lectures would be on Italy, which he had fallen in love with during a European grand tour in 1911. Following his passion for history, art, architecture and culture, he chose Rome and Naples as each deserving their own lectures.
