“The Charmed Life of James Cresson Parrish” at Southampton Historical Museum

November 16, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Charmed Life of James Cresson Parrish: Cultural Connoisseur, World Traveler and Leading Light of Southampton’s Early Summer Colony with Tom Edmonds and Mary Cummings

James Parrish lacked none of the best things in life: a loving family, lively friends of high intellect, considerable wealth allowing for travel, handsome homes in beautiful places, and two passionate pursuits—golf and ice skating, which kept him active and stimulated into old age. This illustrated presentation will draw on Parrish’s 1916 diary, archived at the museum, as well as other sources, to offer insights into an era when the wealthy arguably enjoyed more privileges than at any time before or since.
James Parrish, perfectly attuned to the times, had not just the money but the temperament to fully appreciate his good fortune.

Free admission.
