Gordon assumes his teaching duties with zest and takes on writing projects with Merle Fainsod, a brilliant scholar several years his senior. Early the following year he meets and falls in love with Allison Wright, a schoolteacher at a private academy in Boston and graduate student in sociology at Radcliffe. She seems to him “a human being on a different plane.” They marry after a very short courtship. The young couple is happy, enjoys vacations at Lake Sunapee, and builds their own house there with funds from Bernard Gordon. Lincoln coauthors Government and the American Economy, but he begins to despair about his career, thinking he is not fit for a life of pure research and doesn’t particularly like teaching. He finally thinks up a new research project, but the UK’s (and the Commonwealth’s) involvement in war prevents the couple from traveling to New Zealand.
