The Charmed Life Of James Cresson Parrish

Thursday, November 16, 2017

11:00 am


James Parrish lacked none of the best things in life: a loving family; lively friends with lively
intellects; considerable wealth allowing for travel, handsome homes in beautiful places, and two
passionate pursuits—golf and ice skating—to keep 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. Co-sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum and Rogers
Memorial Library.
