"Arthur Curtiss James and Swiss Village"
By Brian Stinson
An independent historical researcher, writer and lecturer for 25 years, Newport native Brian Stinson is considered to be an expert on Newport History. Although many have anecdotal stories and tidbits of information about the former James estate, most know very little about Harriet or Arthur Curtiss James. Brian will join us to highlight the personal lives of these well-known philanthropists, including details of their many estates, yachts, charities, foundations, family and friends etc., and providing insight to this extraordinary couple and the times in which they lived.
Please check back soon for additional dates and topics to be presented in this ongoing series.
