Overview

Life at Winterthur: A du Pont Family Album by Maggie Lidz

Long before it became a museum, Winterthur was a family home. Babies were born there, children grew up there, young people married there, and old people died there. Through photographs, letters, sketches, and even recipes, this scrapbook chronicles the public and private aspects of life at the busy estate. Published in conjunction with the museum's 50th anniversary celebration, Life at Winterthur begins in 1874, the year the estate was given to Henry Algernon du Pont as a wedding gift, and ends with the 1947 nuptials of his youngest granddaughter, Ruth Ellen -- the last great private celebration before the home opened as a museum. Never-before-published photographs and personal reminiscences enliven this pictorial history of life at one of America's grand old country estates.
