in 1930 and 1940 census there is a Raymond Brooks with wife Laura living in Conn. but both census say he was born in California as were his parents so not sure if he is your man. He is a mining engineer as well

will try to eamil you the passport picture, Its on Ancestry .com through the national Archies and Rcords Administration
the back of his wifes application is on the left side and the front of his is on the right

ships list dated 1934 see Raymond born Chicago with wife Laura landing in LA California going to Greenwich Conn,
wife a citizen by marriage, so must be him in 1930 and 1940

she is born Brantford Ontario, 27 Sept 1887 per a 1936 ship list

they are married by 1928 (yet another ships list) and with them is her son Gordon Forbes b 1909 (Her former husband Allan was a banker from 1920 census and she also had another son)
