Legendary Couple: Paul & Doris Sutton Paul M Sutton Web Site

Paul M Sutton

Physicist Paul M. Sutton wrote beautiful love songs for Doris, his girl back home, while stationed on the USS Wharton, during the Bikini Bomb Tests in the summer of 1946. Between testing Atom Bombs 4 and 5, Paul composed his music on an old piano in the wardroom of the ship. After their wedding Thanksgiving 1946, the songs were put in a file cabinet and forgotten. Found and published 62 years later, the songs Just A Dream Away and Just Say Forever capture the romance of the 1940’s, and are a testament to Paul and Doris’ ever-lasting love. In 2009, after 62 years of marriage, their love is as strong as the notes in these catchy tunes!
