His obituary in The New York Times. And here’s something much more from one who was lucky enough to correspond with him, ADG.

    What a memorable letter….a man of wit and interest. The photo is priceless. I hope ADG had the time to visit with him in person or copy more of his correspondence. Wonderful obituary as well.

    I was unaware of this gentleman and his style. What elegance! What fit! What satisfyingly substantial lapels to serve as backdrop to a flower! He made his presentation of self an exercise in taste. Thank you.
