About this title

Synopsis:

Non-fiction. A pictorial history of Colonel Edward Howland Robinson Green at Round Hill , his estate in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Son of Hetty Green, known to many as the "Witch of Wall Street", Colonel Green was a bright, intelligent man who encouraged technological research on his estate. He supported Massachusetts Institute of Technology in their research at Round Hill, had his own private airport, preserved the whaleship "Charles W. Morgan" and invited the public to come view it. He was a colorful individual, worth millions, and loved by many. He also collected coins, stamps and gems, and his friends included the rich and famous.

About the Author:

Barbara Bedell has been investigating, photographing, writing about and preserving local history for 30 years. Collecting and printing old glass negatives has long been a favorite hobby of hers. In this, her first full length book, she started out again with investigation of one of the most interesting private properties on the east coast, once owned by Colonel E. H. R. Green. Though the Colonel's mansion remains, there are now many homes on the property, where she now lives.
