I have previous work on a group of people. I will continue it here. I will add the old work as I can so that it is easier to understand. Doris Duke, Anna Duke, and my interesting finds along the way. They both had exciting stories to tell and always will. Lets take a look again.

Angier Buchanan Duke (1884–1923) was a Trustee of Duke University from 1914–1923, as well as vice president and president of the Alumni Association.
Duke was the son of Benjamin Newton Duke and Sarah Pearson Angier. He was brother to Mary Lillian Duke, and first cousin to the flamboyant heiress Doris Duke (1912–1993). He married Cordelia Drexel Biddle (daughter of bank heir Anthony Joseph Drexel Biddle, Sr.) with whom he had two children, Angier Biddle Duke (1915–1995) and Anthony Drexel Duke (1918- ). His courtship and marriage were portrayed in a play and in the Disney film The Happiest Millionaire. In an accident in 1905 he had lost a hand and part of his arm. In 1923 he drowned when a boat overturned and he was unable to get back into the boat because of his missing hand.
The Sarah P. Duke Gardens consist of approximately 55 acres (223,000 m²) of landscaped and wooded areas at Duke University. There are five miles (8 km) of allées, walks, and pathways throughout the gardens. The gardens are divided into four areas, the Historic Core and Terraces, the H.L Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, the William Louis Culberson Asiatic Arboretum and the Doris Duke Center Gardens (including the Page-Rollins White Garden). The gardens are a memorial to Sarah P. Duke, wife of Benjamin N. Duke, one of Duke University’s benefactors.
