Henry F. du Pont and Winterthur: A Daughter's Portrait

By Ruth Lord, foreword by R.W.B. Lewis

In this memoir, Ruth Lord,  the younger daughter of Henry Francis du Pont, engagingly describes the development of her father from a shy, lonely child, a seemingly hopeless student who had bad times at school, to a man who went on to achieve singular distinction in three disparate fields: as art connoisseur, horticulturist, and eminent cattle breeder.  Based on her personal experience, and on extraordinary family archives, the author provides a behind-the-scenes view of the legendary lifestyle of the du Pont family.
