Discover local whaleship fleets which traveled to the far corners of the world and the personalities behind local enterprises.

THE CHARMED LIFE OF

JAMES CRESSON PARRISH

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 11:00 AM
Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane
Free Admission, Co-sponsored by the Rogers Memorial Library 
James Parrish lacked none of the best things in life: a loving family (including his better known brother Samuel); lively friends with lively intellects; considerable wealth allowing for travel, handsome homes in beautiful places, and two passionate pursuits-golf and ice skating-to keep him active and stimulated into old age. This illustrated presentation will draw on Parrish’s 1916 diary, archived at the museum, as well as other sources, to offer insights into an era when the wealthy arguably enjoyed more privileges than at any time before or since. James Parrish, perfectly attuned to the times, had not just the money but the temperament to fully appreciate his good fortune.
