Freeday in Semmering

Along with the impromptu ping-pong matches and late-night discussions at the dinner table and bar, the day-trip into Vienna and near-by Semmering was an integral part of the Burg Wartenstein symposium model that gave scholars the chance for a different type of interaction, often as valuable as those in the conference room.

Carlo Alberto Baud, Mrs. Henri V. Vallois, and Henri Vallois enjoy a "freeday" in Semmering during the summer of 1960.
