But *first* there was Lawrence Massachusetts.......NORTH  Lawrence to be

Goulet was born and schooled in Lawrence.  (Typical French Canadian
upbrining...living in the French area going to the French church, etc.)

One of their few famous native sons that Lawrence can claim...besides
Leonard Bernstein

(Although he rarely ever mentions the name Lawrence, when interviewed.  I've
heard him on Carson say NEw England, Massachusetts....but never LAwrence.
But then again...maybe I wouldn't either.)  :-)

There are quite a few plaques and things around town of things he's donated
to schools, etc.

While he did go back to (O) Canada for a bit...he had relatives (unlces,
aunts, etc.) still in Lawrence.

There was an item in the paper a few years ago when one of his Lawrencian
aunties died...and left him her modest house in Lawrence.  The speculation
was.....what would Robert Goulet do with a small little house in Lawrence?
(You guessed it...like many others with property in Lawrence...he SOLD IT!)
