Today I found an article in Antiques magazine 2000 referring to his collecting items for the American Wing of the MET. I also found a painting of his which hangs in the Redwood Library in Newport (which I shall go see Sunday) of a stately home in Portsmouth, RI called Vaucluse. He wrote a Memoir for the Harvard Class of 1911 25th Anniversary publication (p. 252) which I am waiting for a copy of. I believe the origin of the family name is Friedle, and the family came from Pennsylvania but am not certain. I called the MET today and the archivist had NEVER known about him-although they just did a big salute to the American Wing! Funny as one of THEIR curators (Amanda Peck) did that article for Antiques magazine! Stay tuned- Durr is my Man of the Week and I mean to find out all there is to know!/Shelley
