Poulet, through the efforts of her dedicated staff, and with the loyal support of many friends.<br><br> We are especially appreciative of the consider- able efforts of the Council and the Young Fellows Steering Committee. Together, we continue to carry out the mission of the institution 9s founders, Henry Clay Frick and his daughter Helen, to promote the study and enjoyment of the fine arts and kindred subjects. We are committed to careful management of the Frick 9s existing resources, while concurrently developing a vision for an exciting future.<br><br> Please see Anne Poulet 9s letter on page 8 for an account of the achievements of the past eighteen months. During the period of this report, we have made significant additions to the Board of Trustees, with the election of John P. Birkelund, W.<br><br> Mark Brady, Walter A. Eberstadt, and Stephen A. Schwarzman.<br><br> We welcome our new colleagues, each of whom brings us a breadth and depth of experience. At the same time, Anne Poulet has attracted several members to our Council, expanding the expertise of this advisory committee. One of the most important changes that occurred at The Frick Collection in the past eighteen months is that the institution has officially terminated its status as a private operating foundation and is now recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity.<br><br> This transition reflects the fact that the institution generates a substantial and increasing amount of its operating revenue from gifts, grants, and memberships. It elimi- nates our considerable expense for excise taxes and makes available to us significant new sources of funding as we prepare to intensify our fundraising efforts in the coming years. We are profoundly grateful to our supporters whose generosity helped us reach this status.<br><br> In July 2004 we implemented a July 1 3June 30 fiscal year, as opposed to a calendar fiscal year. This accounting change was made to improve our financial planning capability relative to the typical year-end charitable giving cycle and to make our statements more readily comparable with the majority of our peers. During this transition, we did not publish a six-month Annual Report (although we did publish six-month cstub d-year financial statements in our Winter 2005 Members 9 Magazine).<br><br> This publication therefore reports on the institution 9s activities during the eighteen months between January 1, 2004, and June 30, 2005. Under the stewardship of generations of dedicated Trustees, directors, and staff, The Frick Collection has become one of the most highly regarded art institutions in the world. The superb quality of its Old Master paintings, Renaissance bronzes, furniture, porcelains, silver, enamels, carpets, and tapestries is appreciated and beloved by an international public.<br><br> The extensive research and archive collections of the Frick Art Reference Library, the innovative creation of Henry Clay Frick 9s daughter Helen, have come to be relied upon by a community of scholars both here and abroad. Over the last year, the Trustees and staff have spent much time evaluating the opportunities that lie ahead. report of the president Helen Clay Chace 6 Annual Report, January 2004 ~ June 2005 Both the art and library collections have continued to grow and develop over the decades, today posing different challenges in terms of their ongoing needs.<br><br> The increased demands by a more diverse public for educational outreach, interpretive services, and focused exhibitions taxes the capacity of our library, curatorial, education, conservation, and support staff members, who must work in the limited spaces available. While forever committed to its origins and history, The Frick Collection is looking increasingly forward, cognizant that no institution remains static. As a descendant of the institution 9s founder and president of its Board of Trustees, I take seriously both the preservation of the past and the preparation for the future.<br><br> I am grateful to everyone who shares my passion for this special place, and I invite you to participate actively in its extraordinary evolution.

I was especially pleased when, in September 2004, the Frick acquired Joseph Chinard 9s magnificent terracotta Portrait of Étienne Vincent-Marniola (c.<br><br> 1809), our first major purchase in nearly ten years. While the museum often receives gifts of art, we look forward to establishing an acquisition fund that would enable The Frick Collection to venture into the art market at opportune moments such as those that made available this wonderful bust. In the following pages, you will read about curator- ial and library activities; here I would like to focus your attention on the strides we have made in external affairs during 2004 and the first half of 2005.<br><br> Working closely with the senior staff and building on previous strategic planning activity, we spent last summer assessing the accomplishments of the past ten years and forecasting our activity going forward; it was exciting work. Each department prepared a presentation that was delivered to the Board, Council, and Young Fellows Steering Committee in an all-day session held on September 13, 2004. The symposium, titled cThe Frick Collection: Preserving the Legacy/Building for the Future, doffered the opportunity for staff to exchange ideas with the leadership of the Frick and to apprise them of our goals and challenges as we work together to preserve the legacy of Henry Clay Frick while preparing for the institution 9s future .<br><br> One immediate outcome of this process was the initiation, in early 2005, of an architectural study to assess the ways in which we use our facilities, keeping in mind the Frick 9s space requirements for expanding its current programming. In November 2004 we established the Director 9s Circle, which includes long-time Frick supporters as well as new friends. Numbering twenty-four at this writing, this group of individuals will have contributed more than $600,000 during this fiscal year, eliminating a projected 2005 deficit in the process.<br><br> Their combined contributions are used to address two of our most important curatorial and library activities: exhibitions and acquisitions. More important, these generous donors represent a source of enthusiastic support for the institution. Throughout this eighteen-month period, we continued to bring together our friends at openings, concerts, lectures, and special fundraising events.<br><br> The annual Young Fellows Ball 4launched in 2000 4 continues to introduce a younger generation of support- ers to the Frick, in the process raising more than a million dollars to date for our education program, which serves schools throughout the five boroughs. The 2004 Young Fellows Ball, held February 12, re-created the atmosphere of a men 9s club from a bygone era; the 2005 event, A Dance in the Golden Age, on February 24, celebrated the Collection 9s numerous Dutch masters. The 2004 Autumn Dinner, on October 18, honored former Time magazineart critic and author Robert Hughes, who spoke about cWhy the Frick Matters. d Proceeds from the event, totaling more than $250,000, helped to support the core activities of the Collection and Library.<br><br> May 12, 2005, saw the Frick 9s report of the director Anne L. Poulet 8 Annual Report, January 2004 ~ June 2005 return as the beneficiary of the preview opening recep- tion for the International Fine Art Fair, held at the Seventh Regiment Armory. Proceeds from the evening support the Frick 9s special exhibitions program, which complements and amplifies the Collection 9s permanent holdings through loans, educational programs, and scholarly publications.<br><br> Travel has become an increasingly important aspect of the Frick 9s activities. Two high-level member trips were organized to emphasize other approaches to the house museum and private collections; one in October 2004 to Williamstown, Massachusetts, focused on the Sterling & Francine Clark Art Institute and another to Palm Beach in February 2005 featured the Flagler Museum. Through a partnership with the French Heritage Society, the Frick sponsored a trip in October 2004 to Paris and the Île de France to study Regency and Rococo architecture and interior decoration.<br><br> On a bittersweet note, Martin Duus, Vice Director for External Affairs and the first full-time development staff member, resigned in May 2005 after twelve years with the institution, leaving behind a fully fledged fundraising program that will generate nearly $5,000,000 in fiscal year 2006. Under his leadership, our media relations and marketing office was estab- lished in 1998, and the Members 9 Magazine was launched in 2001. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the staff, I would like to express deep gratitude to Martin for building and running this important department, strengthening the Frick in so many ways in the process.<br><br> I hope that you 4our dedicated supporters, volun- teers, and staff 4share my pride in these and the many other accomplishments outlined in this Annual Report. It has been a profoundly gratifying experience leading the Frick during these extremely busy and pivotal times, and I look forward to working together with you to guide the Collection and Library to new levels of success, ensuring that the quality of all aspects of the institution will be sustained for the enjoyment and edification of generations to come.

The number and scope of our special exhibitions continue to grow, and we are engaged in several other scholarly and edu- cational projects.<br><br> Our 2004 exhibition schedule began with A Beautiful and Gracious Manner: The Art of Parmigianino , on view from January 27 through April 18; it brought together drawings, small oil paintings, and prints repre- senting the key periods in Parmigianino 9s brief career. Clare Henry of the Financial Times marveled over this cmagnificent d exhibition, encouraging readers not to miss cthe experience of a lifetime. d The Unfinished Print , which ran from June 2 through August 15, examined the question of aesthetic resolution through five hundred years of graphic art in a variety of media and included several states of the same work in varying degrees of completion by such masters as Mantegna, Goltzius, Rembrandt, Piranesi, Meryon, Degas, and Munch. The New York installation also provided the opportunity to display a number of related prints from our permanent collection.<br><br> European Bronzes from the Quentin Collection, which ran from September 28, 2004, through January 2, 2005, was the only public exhibition to date of this distinguished, little-known private collection devoted to the art of the sixteenth- through eighteenth-century statuette. The nearly forty sculptures on view had been assembled during the last twenty-five years, and some pieces were new discoveries exhibited here for the first time. The show inspired a bronze cstudy day, d held jointly at The Frick Collection and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in December 2004; the symposium was attended by an international group of academics, curators, dealers, and collectors.<br><br> Ten bronzes lent by public and private collections were brought together for comparison with the Quentin bronzes. We were delighted to be able to exhibit Raphael 9s La Fornarina , on loan from the Galleria Nazionale d 9Arte Antica di Palazzo Barberini in Rome. This was our first cooperative venture with the newly created Foundation for Italian Arts and Culture, with which we hope to collaborate again.<br><br> Mellon Fellow Xavier F. Salomon wrote the text panels and the brochure that accompanied the work and gave several gallery talks on this enigmatic portrait, which was on view in the Oval Room from December 2, 2004, through February 3, 2005. Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (February 15 3April 24, 2005), was the third exhibition in a series beginning with Willem van Tetrode (c.<br><br> 1525 31580): Bronze Sculptures of the Renaissance (2003) that featured the art of the statuette and has focused attention on the Collection 9s significant hold- ings in that area. In conjunction with this exhibition, Animals in Combat: Susini 9s cLion Attacking a Horse d and cLeopard Attacking a Bull d explored the history of an important Renaissance sculptural theme. The installation, which was presented in the Cabinet February 15 through April 24, 2005, celebrated Walter A.<br><br> and Vera Eberstadt 9s 2002 gift to The Frick Collection of two exquisite bronze pendant fighting animal groups, dated to report of the chief curator Colin B. Bailey 10 Annual Report, January 2004 ~ June 2005 around 1630, by Giovanni Francesco Susini. From May 10 through August 14, 2005, we were proud to display two newly conserved Mughal carpets from the permanent collection.<br><br> These magnificent seventeenth-century Indian carpets are among fewer than five hundred that survive from the court of the Mughal emperors. After a nearly four-year restoration by preeminent textile conservator Nobuko Kajitani, the carpets were displayed in the Oval Room for the first time as works of art in their own right. From Callot to Greuze: French Drawings from Weimar was on view from June 1 through August 7, 2005.<br><br> This exhi- bition, co-organized by the Schlossmuseum, presented a selection of approximately seventy drawings from the Schlossmuseum and the Goethe-Nationalmuseum in Weimar, Germany. The Frick coordinated the accompa- nying English catalogue, which is an important contri- bution to the corpus of literature on French drawings. In addition to our temporary exhibitions, we con- tinue to enrich our visitors 9 experiences through several long-term loans.<br><br> Parmigianino 9s magnificent Portrait of a Man with a Book was on extended loan from the York Art Gallery from January 27 until November 21, 2004. In July 2004, we received Christ on the Cross between the Virgin and Saint John , painted circa 1340 by Simone Martini and his assistants, from the Phillips Family Collection; this exquisite panel remains on display in the Enamels Room. Particularly noteworthy in 2004 was the acquisition of Joseph Chinard 9s Portrait of Étienne Vincent-Marniola.<br><br> Executed around 1809, the terracotta bust is the Frick 9s first major acquisition by purchase in almost a decade. Members of the curatorial department did extensive research on the sitter, Vincent-Marniola (1781 31809), and discovered that he was the scion of a wealthy par- lementaire family who rose to one of the highest positions in Napoleon 9s government by the age of twenty-eight. Care of the permanent collection is always para- mount, and recent projects include the rematting and storage of the Collection 9s works of art on paper, new object mounts for sculpture in the Boucher Room, completion of the cleaning work on two cassoni, and the conservation of the two Boulle pedestals in the Living Hall.<br><br> Dorothy Mahon from The Metropolitan Museum of Art cleaned Vermeer 9s Officer and Laughing Girl, and two clocks 4David Weber 9s and Veyt Schaufel 9s astro- nomical and calendrical table clocks, both part of the 1999 bequest from Winthrop Edey 4were conserved by consultant restorers. Also in 2004, we republished a revised version of The Frick Collection Handbook of Paintings. This new version contains color images as well as updated material on works in the permanent collection.<br><br> We continue to carry out Henry Clay Frick 9s mission to encourage a better understanding of the fine arts and related studies through our lecture series. In addition to a full schedule of talks delivered by eminent art his- torians, scholars, and writers, our two Council lectures were particularly noteworthy. On March 24, 2004, for the second lecture in the annual Council lecture series, Caroline Elam presented cRoger Fry and the Re-Evaluation of Piero della Francesca, d which exam- ined the role that the celebrated critic, curator, and art Giovanni Francesco Susini (1585 3c.<br><br> 1653), A Lion Attacking a Horse, c. 1630 340, bronze, The Frick Collection, gift of Walter A. and Vera Eberstadt Raphael Sanzio (1483 31520), La Fornarina, c.<br><br> 1520, Galleria Nazionale d 9Arte Antica di Palazzo Barberini, Rome 11 The Frick Collection adviser played in making Piero della Francesca one of the most admired fifteenth-century Italian artists in the twentieth century. This lecture was published by The Frick Collection. On March 30, 2005, Theodore Reff gave the third annual Council lecture on Manet 9s 1864 Salon painting Incident in a Bullfight , from which the Frick 9s Bullfight is a fragment from the upper right-hand section of the original canvas .<br><br> Reff discussed the original composition of the painting and placed it in its political context; his lecture will be published in December 2005. Scholarly investigation and education are essential to the curatorial department 9s mission. During the 2004 35 school year, The Frick Collection 9s education department servednearly eighteen hundred students and their teachers from sixty-three classes in thirty-four middle and high schools from all five boroughs.<br><br> On- and off-site visits were conducted for approximately seventy-five public school teachers from neighborhoods throughout the city. In the Frick 9s third year of collabo- ration with the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, ten classes participated in this social studies project, includ- ing two classes of developmentally disabled students. The Frick Collection 9s program for medical profes- sionals, the Art of Observation,concluded its fifth year with seventy-five students participating from New York City medical schools including Weill Cornell, Mount Sinai, and Albert Einstein.<br><br> In August 2004, a special version of the Art of Observation waslaunched for the New York City Police Department. Continuing into 2005, groups of newly promoted captains, sergeants, and senior members of the NYPD 9s administrative depart- ment participated in sessions designed to improve their observation, articulation, and communication skills. For the second year, the Frick offered bi-monthly gallery talks.<br><br> Delivered by art historians on staff at The Frick Collection and Art Reference Library, the talks focused on a particular object or gallery in the Collection. Once a month, the gallery talk was simulta- neously sign-language interpreted for hearing-impaired members of the audience. I am very happy to report that several members of the curatorial department were honored with distin- guished awards in recent months.<br><br> Curator Susan Grace Galassi was awarded a Getty Curatorial Research Fellowship for travel research for the upcoming Goya 9s Last Works (February 22 through May 14, 2006); her catalogue Whistler, Women, and Fashion (Yale University Press, 2003), which was co-authored with Margaret MacDonald and Aileen Ribiero, received the William E. Fischelis Book Award for 2004 from the Victorian Society of America; and she was elected to the board of the College Art Association. The Society of Architectural Historians recognized Mellon Fellow Yvonne Elet with its Founders 9 Award, for the best article on the history of architecture by an emerging scholar, published in its journal during the last two years.<br><br> I was honored to receive the prestigious Mitchell Prize for my recent work Patriotic Taste: Collecting Modern Art in Pre-Revolutionary Paris (Yale University Press, 2002). It is awarded every two years to a book in English that has made an outstanding and original contribution to the study of the visual arts. As this report must be brief, I have touched on only some of the many activities that my dynamic and talented department has undertaken in these eighteen months; I am grateful for the public 9s positive response to our burgeoning exhibition and loan program and to the other scholarly and educational initiatives to which we are deeply committed.<br><br> 12 Annual Report, January 2004 ~ June 2005 January 28, 2004 A Beautiful and Gracious Manner: The Art of Parmigianino David Franklin, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa February 18, 2004 A Mysterious Masterpiece: What 9s Really Going on in Bellini 9s cSaint Francis in the Desert d?

Indeed, 2004 and the first six months of 2005 marked three important occasions that stand out as milestones in the Frick Art Reference Library 9s contin- ued commitment to its mission and its history, as well as its expanded relevance to a larger and more diverse international research community.<br><br> These occasions 4 a February 2004 open house celebration of a decade of accomplishments, the September 2004 symposium for strategic planning, and the colloquium in May 2005 to explore ways in which to formally establish the Library as an official center for the history of collecting in America 4afforded important opportunities to take stock and to develop exciting programs for the future. At every juncture, I was reminded that the scholars we serve and our peers at other art libraries look to the Frick as a paragon of excellence, whether in assembling, caring for, and making available the highest quality of research collections and archives, or advancing art research through new media technologies and access tools. At the same time, these occasions underscored the fact that we never can rest on our laurels but must continue to juggle an ambitious programmatic vision with the inescapable restrictions imposed by space and funding.<br><br> We continue to build our vast research collections, seeking to enhance what even the most eager antiquar- ian bookseller will concede is so complete as to have no equal among area libraries. During this eighteen-month period, the Library 9s holdings of books, photographs, and electronic resources were amplified most impres- sively with gifts of approximately ten thousand photographs from The Kennedy Galleries, Inc., and exhibition catalogues from the Associated American Artists Gallery. In addition, the Library has expanded its collections with subscriptions to ARTstor (offering access to nearly half a million images for art teaching and research), JSTOR (offering online access to a wide range of periodical literature), and the remarkable Art Sales Catalogues Online (generously underwritten for three years by Nanne Dekking and Frank Ligtvoet), which so significantly complements the Library 9s auction catalogue collection.<br><br> During a period when the weak U.S. dollar and ris- ing prices for European publications called for austerity, the Library was once again the beneficiary of Melvin R. Seiden 9s visionary generosity, as he initiated yet another endowed book fund, this one in honor of Frick Council member Jonathan Brown.<br><br> To honor Edgar Munhall, the Frick 9s Curator Emeritus, an anonymous donor created a fund in his name. In August 2004, a most fortuitous acquisition came to the Library quite by chance, when a Pennsylvania bookseller offered a two-volume ledger recording pictures, treatments, prices, and clients 9 names relating to work performed by the Frick 9s conservator, William Suhr, between 1938 and 1953. Thus, the Archives gained a valuable document about an important member of our institutional family and a history of painting conserva- tion in the mid-twentieth century.<br><br> report of the andrew w. mellon librarian Patricia Barnett 14 Annual Report, January 2004 ~ June 2005 Notable authors of recent books on collecting con- tinue to rely on the Library 9s vast Archives, consulting materials both from The Helen Clay Frick Foundation Archives and from the Collection and Library papers. Our curators, too, took full advantage of the proximity of these documents, requesting information on subjects as diverse as the Enamels Room, the Carrère and Hastings blueprints for the Frick residence, and specific purchases of paintings in the permanent collection.<br><br> With more and more researchers in search of primary material related to collecting in America during the Gilded Age, we recognize that our collaborative guardianship of the Frick family archive with the University of Pittsburgh, now three years into its partnership, will prove even more beneficial to our patrons than we had initially anticipated. Today, with space concerns paramount for libraries across the country, our Library must take an active role in defining and developing new paths and methods for sharing our collections with sister institutions in New York and beyond. To this end, the Library became part of the New York Art Museum Library Collaborative.<br><br> Supported by a planning grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this group 4consisting of the libraries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Frick 4worked over a ten-month period with con- sultant James Neal, Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian at Columbia University, to develop a model for regional collaboration for enhanced access and services. The Library also has entered into discussions promising partnerships for shared cataloging and other initiatives with the Getty Research Institute and the Biblioteca Hertziana in Rome.<br><br> Conversion to new media continues to touch every department of the Library. The online conversion of the Library 9s printed catalogues involved hundreds of hours of review and correction. In late 2004, elec- tronic conversion was completed on all bibliographic auction catalogue records, which now are accessible in FRESCO (Frick Research Catalog Online).<br><br> Planning for the conversion of the Index to Art Periodicals is under way, thanks to a grant received from the Metropolitan New York Library Council. On a more challenging level, one that means navigating uncharted waters, the Library is engaged in two projects for the digital conversion of nearly half of the Library 9s sixty thousand negatives. The Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Foundation and New York Times Company Foundation have gener- ously supported the digital conversion of five thousand of the most endangered negatives from the Library 9s photography campaigns of 1920 367.<br><br> Similarly, ARTstor has partnered with the Library to make possible the conversion of nearly twenty thousand negatives of works photographed at London auctions during the 1920s and 1930s and Italian works photographed by Mario Sansoni between 1923 and 1951. These last two collec- tions will join others in ARTstor 9s growing compen- dium of globally accessible images. All conversion to new media acutely affects the conservation department and the electronic infrastruc- Photograph of Smith 9s Cove, circa 1936 by Stuart Davis (1894 31964), gift of The Kennedy Galleries Hispania (February 1899), from the Library 9s installation Points of View: The Power of Art Journalism 15 The Frick Collection ture cared for by the information systems department.<br><br> For the conservation staff, preparation of materials for reformatting means facing the unexpected every day, whether that be photographs and negatives to be sorted and categorized for digital conversion or archival documents and films that need immediate attention to save them from mold. Indeed, the new state-of-the-art digital lab is fast becoming one of the Library 9s greatest assets for preservation. For our information systems department, digital conversion requires constant upgrading of the network and its image storage capacity, as well as handling the increased demand for digital images from both staff and the public.<br><br> Nurturing scholarship is the ultimate goal of any research library, but some libraries do this more actively than others. Helen Clay Frick never saw her library 9s role as passive. Accordingly, the Library steadily expanded its Research Program to reach beyond the orientations and internships for local graduate students established in the late 1990s, to include panel discus- sions, collaborations with other research centers, and exhibitions, such as the 2004 installation of auction catalogues in the Garden Court .<br><br> Titled Fair Warning, the installation coincided with the Library 9s fifth annual Dialogues on Art, a panel discussion cosponsored with Knoedler & Company. The discussion topic, cThe Bid 9s Against You: Perspectives on the Auction House, d was moderated by Peter Sutton, director of the Bruce Museum of Arts and Science. In 2005, both the installation in the Library 9s exhibition cases and the panel discussion paid tribute to the important role that art journalism plays in the field of art history.<br><br> Titled cPoints of View: The Power of Art Journalism, d the panel discussion was moderated by Simon Schama, pro- fessor of history and art history at Columbia University. Scholars have long regarded the Library as invalu- able for researching the history of collecting in America. With this field expanding to touch more academic pro- grams and interdisciplinary research projects, the time is right for the Library and Collection to embrace a higher profile in this area.<br><br> In May 2005, we took the first step down this path by calling a colloquium of distinguished experts to discuss formalizing the Library 9s position as a center for the history of collecting in America, as well as to evaluate the needs and objectives of such a center, both on an intellectual level and on a practical one. In these endeavors, whose potential always seems limitless, we are grateful for the engaged and invaluable intellectual support we receive from the Trustees and Council Library Committee, chaired by Melvin R. Seiden, and the encouragement of new programs and initiatives that Director Anne L.<br><br> Poulet gives so unfailingly. I cannot close this letter without special mention of the Library 9s exceptional staff. These are people whose performances are surpassed only by the origin- ality with which they develop new ways to complete their daily tasks.<br><br> Too many to name individually, numerous staff members teach and enroll in courses that enhance the Library 9s position in local academic circles.

Roughly half of The Frick Collection 9s funding for its operations must be found annually from sources other than its endowment. Capital projects and special programs require addi- tional resources as well.<br><br> These listings reflect gifts and grants that provide vitally needed general operating funds, as well as support for a range of projects including special exhibitions and publica- tions, Library acquisitions and its endowment, services to scholars, the education program, conservation equipment and materials, landscaping, seminars, the Photoarchive, and the annual Symposium on the History of Art. In addition, the demands of our beautiful, but aging, building require an increasing investment of capital. We are most grateful to our supporters for their generous help in funding our vital programs and services.<br><br> Gifts & Grants January 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005 The Frick Collection Mr. and Mrs. Mark L.<br><br> Moehlman Mr. and Mrs. Oliver K.<br><br> Stanton Director 9s Circle Irene Roosevelt Aitken Mr. and Mrs. John P.<br><br> Birkelund Mr. and Mrs. Peter P.<br><br> Blanchard III Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah M.<br><br> Bogert Edward Lee Cave Mr. and Mrs. Minturn V.<br><br> Chace The Honorable Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat Hester Diamond Mr. and Mrs. L.<br><br> F.
