[[Rock Hudson]], at that time still going by his name Roy Fitzgerald, was discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1946 and decided to go to California because his father, was living in Long Beach.  He found a job driving for Budget Pack.  In Long Beach, for the first time, he met men who were open about being gay.  One of these was Kenneth G Hodge.  "...Ken Hodge had worked in radio for many years, producing [[Lux Radio Theatre]].  Ken was thirty-six and Roy was twenty-one...he lived in a penthouse...in the [[Chateau Marmont]], a building owned by his Aunt Bernadette." (''My Story'', p 43)  But Davidson was wrong as Kenneth was only 32 when they met.

Davidson continues saying that Kenneth had left the business and moved to Long Beach to manage the Chateau Marmont which his aunt owned.  The Voter Registration shows their address in 1948 and in 1950 as 921 E Broadway.  Is that the address of the Chateau Marmont?
  
 
Roy and Kenneth met in the Summer of 1947, "...together they left Long Beach and moved to Hollywood where they shared a bungalow in the hills." But again something is a bit amiss as the Voter Registrations show that Ken was registered not in Long Beach, but in Los Angeles in 1946, and that both Ken and Roy were still registered in Long Beach in 1948 and in 1950.
