Volume I, published in 2002 under the guidance of editor Marilynn Hill, featured Francis Edmonds, one of New York’s leading bankers, who was equally talented as an artist; Harriet Hubbard Ayer, a socialite who lived in Bronxville’s insane asylum; the early women of the Bronxville School PTA; a tribute to Frieda Wildy Riggs; an engaging piece on Edmund Clarence Stedman, a blue-eyed poet who was as comfortable at the center of New York City’s literati as he was in the canyons of Wall Street, and the words of Paul Goldberger on The Power of Place, the subject of the first Brendan Gill Lecture.
