This chapter presents the author's account of her continued connections with Guam even after the passage of organic legislation. These include visiting Guam in June 1951 as Pacific Area Assistant in the Office of Territories, United States Department of the Interior; working in the Office of Territories in Washington, D.C., as liaison between government officials in Guam and the Trust Territory and federal agency officials in Washington; helping establish the Guam Territorial Society, which sponsored a Cherry Blossom Queen candidate from Guam each spring; and participating in the 50th Anniversary of the Organic Act of Guam in 2000, where she spoke of her recollections at a day-long seminar on the history of the island held at the University of Guam.
