A Duke And A King Again

Copyright 2012

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.

      Sir Ronald Cohen (born 1945) is an Egyptian-born British businessman and political figure, known as “the father of British venture capital”[1] and “the father of social investment”.[2]

      Cohen was born in Egypt; his family are Sephardi Jews, originally from Aleppo, Syria, though his mother, Sonia Douek, is English by nationality. In 1957, following the Suez Crisis, Cohen’s family was forced to abandon all their assets and flee Egyptian President Nassar’s persecution of Jews.[3] The family (including younger brother Andre) moved to England. Though initially speaking only a few words of English, Cohen went to Orange Hill grammar school in North London, now part of Mill Hill County High School where despite describing it as “a school of very doubtful reputation”[4] he excelled.

      Cohen won a scholarship to Oxford University, where he became President of the Oxford Union, and earned a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Exeter College. He subsequently attended Harvard Business School, where he was a member of the Harvard Business School Rugby Club.

      [edit] BusinessAfter leaving Harvard Business School, Cohen worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company in the United Kingdom and Italy. In 1972, along with two former business school colleagues as partners, he founded Apax Partners, one of Britain’s first venture capital firms. The company grew slowly at first, but expanded rapidly in the 1990s, becoming Britain’s largest venture capital firm, and “one of three truly global venture capital firms”.[3] Apax provided startup capital for over 500 companies, and provided money for many others, including AOL, Virgin Radio, Waterstone’s, and PPL Therapeutics, the company that cloned Dolly the sheep. In 1996 Cohen helped establish Easdaq, a technology focused stock exchange intended to be the European counterpart to the American Nasdaq. He is the recipient of a Jubilee Award for services to Israeli business, awarded by Benjamin Netanyahu and the BVCA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He is a member of the Harvard Board of Overseers and is also a fellow of Exeter College, Oxford.

      Apax in the 1980s, 1990s and the 21st centuryThroughout the 1980s, the firm grew steadily raising capital under a series of separate funds. As the 1980s progressed, the firm introduced its first later stage venture fund in 1984, its first growth capital fund in 1987 and its first dedicated European leveraged buyout fund MMG Patricof European Buy-In Fund in 1989.[4] In response to the changing conditions, in the venture capital industry in the 1980s Apax (and other early venture capital firms including Warburg Pincus and J.H. Whitney & Company) began to transition away from venture capital toward leveraged buyouts and growth capital investments, which were in vogue in that decade.[5][6] This trend was more prevalent in Europe than the U.S. where Patricof preferred to continue focusing on venture investments.

      In 1991, Apax Partners became the official name for all of its European operations however the U.S. business still operated under the Patricof & Co. name. By the mid-1990s Apax had become one of the larger private equity firms globally.

      In 2000, Patricof & Co. adopted the Apax Partners branding and formalized its affiliation with its European business. The U.S. business would operate as Apax Partners, Inc.[2] The following year, Patricof stepped back from day-to-day management of Apax Partners, Inc., the US arm of the firm to return to his original focus on making venture capital investments in small early-stage companies. In 2006, Patricof left Apax to form Greycroft Partners which focuses on small early-stage venture capital investments.[7]

      Despite the closer relations between the U.S. and European teams, the firm still operated separate fund entities for each geography. The European side of the business began to pull away in terms of capital commitments, raising more than $5 billion for its 2004 vintage European fund but just $1 billion for its 2006 U.S. vintage fund.[4]

      [edit] Saunders Karp & MegrueIn 2005, Apax announced it would acquire middle market leveraged buyout firm Saunders Karp & Megrue to augment its buyout business in the United States Saunders Karp, formerly based in Stamford, Connecticut, was founded in 1989 by Thomas A. Saunders III and Allan W. Karp. John Megrue, who today heads Apax’s operations in the U.S., had worked as a principal at Patricof & Co. before joining Saunders Karp in 1992.[8] Saunders Karp had received capital commitments from institutional investors including AT&T, the General Electric Pension Trust, Goldman Sachs Private Equity Group, HarbourVest Partners, JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management, New York State Common Retirement Fund and Verizon, among others.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McKinsey_%26_Company
    McKinsey & Company was founded in 1926 in Chicago by James McKinsey under the name James O. McKinsey & Company.[8][9] Previously, McKinsey served as an accounting professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and is considered the father of managerial accounting.[10] Advocates for the concepts introduced in McKinsey’s book, Budgetary Control, were among McKinsey’s first clients.[10][11] The book founded the practice of managerial accounting.[10]

    Mr. McKinsey hired Tom Kearney and Marvin Bower in the early 1930s.[8][12] In 1935,[13] In 1935, Marshall Field’s became a client and in 1935 convinced McKinsey to leave the firm to accept a temporary position and become its Chairman and CEO, in order to help the company through a restructuring.[11][14] After McKinsey left, the remaining members of the firm agreed to merge with the accounting firm Scovell, Wellington & Company in 1935, leading to the creation of McKinsey, Wellington & Co.[13]

    In 1937 James O. McKinsey died unexpectedly of pneumonia, which led to the division of McKinsey, Wellington & Company in 1939. C. Oliver Wellington returned to manage Scovell, Wellington & Company full-time and took the accounting practice with him. The management engineering practice was split into two affiliated firms: McKinsey & Company and McKinsey, Kearney & Company. McKinsey & Company was led by Guy Crockett, Dick Fletcher, and Marvin Bower.[citation needed] Guy Crockett became Managing Partner of McKinsey & Company, running day-to-day operations, while Marvin Bower handled conceptual and long-term strategy as Crockett’s deputy.[13] Bower would lead the company for 30 years with a focus on being “professional” in looks, tone, and conduct.[15]

    McKinsey & Company is credited with creating modern management consulting as a professional service.[13][16] Marvin Bower is credited with shaping the firm’s values and principles.[17] Bower’s idea was to create a management consulting firm working with senior executives with the same professional standards he had witnessed as a lawyer for the firm of Jones Day Reavis & Pogue,[18] in Cleveland.[11]

    In New York, Bower established the firm’s core principles in a 1937 memo.[13][19] According to Fortune Magazine.

    Diana Vreeland (July 29, 1903, Paris, France – August 22, 1989, New York City) was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1965.[1]

    [edit] Early lifeShe was born as Diana Dalziel in Paris, at 5 Avenue Bois de Boulogne (Avenue Foch since World War I). Vreeland was the eldest daughter of American socialite mother Emily Key Hoffman (1876-1928) and British father Frederick Young Dalziel (d.1960). Hoffman was a descendant of George Washington’s brother as well as a cousin of Francis Scott Key. She also was a distant cousin of Pauline de Rothschild (1908-1976). Vreeland had one sister, Alexandra (1907-1999), who later married Sir Alexander Davenport Kinloch, 12th Baronet (1902-1982).

    Vreeland’s family emigrated to the United States at the outbreak of World War I, and moved to 15 East 77th Street in New York, where they became prominent figures in society. Vreeland was sent to dancing school and was a pupil of Michel Fokine, the only Imperial ballet master to ever leave Russia, and later of Louis Chalif. Vreeland performed in Pavlova’s Gavotte at Carnegie Hall. On March 1, 1924, Diana Dalziel married Thomas Reed Vreeland (1899–1966), a banker, at St. Thomas’ Church in New York, with whom she would have two sons: Tim (Thomas Reed Vreeland Jr.) born 1925, who became an architect as well as a professor of architecture at UCLA, and Frecky (Frederick Dalziel Vreeland) b.1927 (later U.S. ambassador to Morocco).[2] A week before her wedding, it was reported in The New York Times that her mother, Emily, had been named co-respondent in the divorce proceedings of Sir Charles Ross and his second wife, Patricia. The ensuing society scandal estranged Vreeland and her mother, who died in September 1928 in Nantucket, Massachusetts.[citation needed]

    After their honeymoon, the Vreelands moved to Albany, New York and raised their two sons, staying there until 1929. They then moved to 17 Hanover Terrace, Regent’s Park, London, previously the home of Wilkie Collins and Edmund Gosse. During her time in London, she danced with the Tiller Girls and met Cecil Beaton, who became a lifelong friend. Like Syrie Maugham and Elsie de Wolfe, other society women that ran their own boutiques, Diana operated a lingerie business near Berkeley Square whose clients included Wallis Simpson and Mona Williams. She often visited Paris, where she would buy her clothes, mostly from Chanel, whom she had met in 1926. She was one of fifteen American women presented to King George V and Queen Mary at Buckingham Palace on May 18, 1933.[citation needed] In 1937, her husband’s job brought them back to New York, where they lived for the remainder of their lives.

    “Before I went to work for Harper’s Bazaar in 1937, I had been leading a wonderful life in Europe. That meant traveling, seeing beautiful places, having marvelous summers, studying and reading a great deal of the time.”[3] These travels are the subject of the documentary – “The Eye Has to Travel” a film that pays tribute to the extraordinary life of Diana Vreeland, and debuted on September 21, 2012 at The Angelika Theater in New York City.

    [edit] Career[edit] Harper’s Bazaar 1937-1962Her publishing career began in 1937 as columnist for Harper’s Bazaar. In 1937, the Vreelands moved from London to New York City. They found New York City to be extremely expensive. Carmel Snow, the editor of Harper’s Bazaar, was impressed with Vreeland’s clothing style and asked her to work at the magazine.[4] From 1937 until her resignation, Diana Vreeland ran a column for Harper’s Bazaar called “Why Don’t You?”. One example is a suggestion she made in the column, “Why don’t you…. Turn your child into an Infanta for a fancy-dress party?”[5] According to Vreeland, “The one that seemed to cause the most attention was […] “[Why Don’t You] [w]ash your blond child’s hair in dead champagne, as they do in France.” Vreeland says that S.J. Perelman wrote a parody of it for The New Yorker magazine that outraged her then editor Carmel Snow.[6]

    Diana Vreeland “discovered” actress Lauren Bacall in the nineteen forties. A Harper’s Bazaar cover from the early forties shows Lauren Bacall posing near a Red Cross office. Based on editor Vreeland’s decision, “[t]here is an extraordinary photograph in which Bacall is leaning against the outside door of a Red Cross blood donor room. She wears a chic suit, gloves, a cloche hat with long waves of hair falling from it”.[7] Vreeland was noted for taking fashion seriously. She commented in 1946 that “[T]he bikini is the most important thing since the atom bomb”.[8] Vreeland disliked the common approach to dressing that she saw in the United States in the forties. She detested “strappy high heel shoes” and the “crêpe de chine dresses” that women wore even in the heat of the summer in the country.[9]

    Until her resignation at Harper’s Bazaar, she worked closely with Louise Dahl-Wolfe,[10] Richard Avedon, Nancy White[11] and Alexey Brodovitch. Diana Vreeland became Fashion Editor for the magazine. Richard Avedon said when he first met Diana Vreeland and worked for Harper’s Bazaar, “Vreeland returned to her desk, looked up at me for the first time and said, ‘Aberdeen, Aberdeen, doesn’t it make you want to cry?’ Well, it did. I went back to Carmel Snow and said, ‘I can’t work with that woman. She calls me Aberdeen.’ And Carmel Snow said, ‘You’re going to work with her.’ And I did, to my enormous benefit, for almost 40 years.”[12] Avedon said at the time of her death: ‘”She was and remains the only genius fashion editor[.]”[13]

    In 1955, the Vreelands moved to a new apartment which was decorated exclusively in red. Diana Vreeland had Billy Baldwin decorate her apartment.[14] She said, “I want this place to look like a garden, but a garden in hell.”[12] Regular attendees at the parties the Vreelands threw were socialite C.Z. Guest, composer Cole Porter and British photographer Cecil Beaton[12] In 1957’s Paramount movie musical Funny Face, the character of Maggie Prescott (as portrayed by Kay Thompson) was based on Vreeland.[15]

    In 1960, John F. Kennedy became president and Diana Vreeland advised the First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in matters of style. “Vreeland advised Jackie throughout the campaign and helped connect her with fashion designer Oleg Cassini, who became chief designer to the first lady.”[16] “I can remember Jackie Kennedy, right after she moved into the White House.[…]It wasn’t even like a country club, if you see what I mean-plain.” Vreeland occasionally gave Mrs. Kennedy advice about clothing during her husband’s administration, and small advice about what to wear on Inauguration Day in 1961.[17]

    In spite of being extremely successful, Diana Vreeland made a small amount of money from the Hearst Corporation, which owned Harper’s Bazaar. Vreeland says that she was paid eighteen thousand dollars a year from 1937 with a raise finally in 1959 of one thousand dollars. “San Simeon[18] must have been where the Hearst money went, I certainly never saw any of it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hague
    The Hague (Dutch: Den Haag pronounced [dɛnˈɦaːx] ( listen); officially ‘s-Gravenhage pronounced [ˈsxraːvə(n)ˌɦaːɣə] ( listen)) is the capital city of the province of South Holland in the Netherlands. With a population of 500,000 inhabitants (as of 1 September 2011),[1][2] and more than one million inhabitants including the suburbs, it is the third largest city of the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Located in the west of the Netherlands, The Hague is in the centre of the Haaglanden conurbation and lies at the southwest corner of the larger Randstad conurbation.

    The Hague is the seat of the Dutch government and parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Council of State, but the city is not the capital of the Netherlands which constitutionally is Amsterdam. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands lives at Huis ten Bosch and works at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague. Most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 150 international organisations are located in the city, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, which makes The Hague one of the major cities hosting the United Nations, along with New York, Vienna and Geneva.

    [edit] History
    The Hague in 1868The Hague originated around 1230, when Floris IV, Count of Holland purchased land alongside a pond (now the Hofvijver) in order to build a hunting residence. In 1248 William II, Count of Holland and Rex Romanorum, decided to extend the residence to a palace. He died in 1256 before this palace was completed, but parts of it were finished by his son Floris V, of which the Ridderzaal (Knights’ Hall), still extant, is the most prominent. It is still used for political events, such as the annual speech from the throne by the monarch. From the 13th century on the counts of Holland used The Hague as their administrative centre and residence when in Holland.

    [edit] Name and statusThe Hague is first mentioned as Die Hage in a document dating from 1242. In the fifteenth century, the smarter des Graven hage came into use, literally “the count’s wood”, with connotations like “the count’s hedge, private enclosure or hunting grounds”. Gravenhage was officially used for the city from the 17th century on. Today this name is only used in some official documents like birth and marriage certificates. The city itself uses “Den Haag” in all its communication.[3]

    Street in The Hague by Sybrand van Beest, c. 1650, Royal Castle in WarsawWhen the Dukes of Burgundy gained control over the counties of Holland and Zeeland at the beginning of the 15th century, they appointed a stadtholder to rule in their stead with the States of Holland as an advisory council. Their seat was located in The Hague. At the beginning of the Eighty Years’ War, the absence of city walls proved disastrous, as it allowed Spanish troops easily to occupy the town. In 1575 the States of Holland even considered demolishing the city, but this proposal was abandoned, after mediation by William of Orange. From 1588 The Hague also became the location of the government of the Dutch Republic. In order for the administration to maintain control over city matters, The Hague never received official city status (although it did have many of the privileges normally granted only to cities). However, since the days of King Louis Napoleon (1806) The Hague has been allowed to call itself a city.

    After the Napoleonic Wars, modern-day Belgium and the Netherlands were combined in the United Kingdom of the Netherlands to form a buffer against France. As a compromise, Brussels and Amsterdam alternated as capital every two years, with the government remaining in The Hague. After the separation of Belgium in 1830, Amsterdam remained the capital of the Netherlands, while the government was situated in The Hague.

    Since early times, probably as far back as the 16th century, the stork has been the symbol of The Hague.[4]

    [edit] Modern cityBecause of its history, the historical inner city of The Hague differs in various respects from the nearby smaller cities of Leiden and Delft. It does not have a cramped inner city, bordered by canals and walls. Instead it has some small streets in the town centre that may be dated from the late Middle Ages, and several spacious streets boasting large and luxurious 18th century residences built for diplomats and affluent Dutch families. It has a large church dating from the 15th century, an impressive City Hall (built as such) from the 16th century, several large 17th-century palaces, a 17th-century Protestant church built in what was then a modern style, and many important 18th-century buildings. When the government started to play a more prominent role in Dutch society after 1850, The Hague quickly expanded. Many streets were specifically built for the large number of civil servants employed in the country’s government and for the Dutchmen who were retiring from the administration and exploitation of the Netherlands East Indies. The growing city annexed the rural municipality of Loosduinen partly in 1903 and completely in 1923.

    Parts of the city sustained heavy damage during World War II. The Atlantic Wall was built through part of the city, causing a large quarter to be torn down by the Nazi occupants. On 3 March 1945, the Royal Air Force mistakenly bombed the Bezuidenhout quarter. The target was an installation of V-2 rockets in a nearby park. Because of navigational errors, the bombs fell on a heavily populated and historic part of the city. 511 people died and the scars in the city may still be seen today.

    Skyscraper called “Het Strijkijzer” (The Iron)After the war The Hague was at one point the largest building site in Europe. The city expanded massively to the southwest. The destroyed areas were also quickly rebuilt. The population peaked at 600,000 inhabitants around 1965.

    In the 1970s and 1980s many, mostly white, middle-class families moved to neighbouring towns like Voorburg, Leidschendam, Rijswijk and, most of all, Zoetermeer. This led to the traditional pattern of an impoverished inner city and more prosperous suburbs. Attempts to include parts of these municipalities in the city of The Hague were highly controversial. In the 1990s, with the consent of Dutch Parliament, The Hague annexed fairly large areas from neighbouring towns as well as from not even bordering ones, on which complete new residential areas were built and are still being built.

    Along with business partner, Jack Canfield, Hansen is best known for creating what Time magazine called “the publishing phenomenon of the decade”. Chicken Soup for the Soul books are one of the most successful publishing franchises in the world today, with more than 140 million books sold internationally and more than 100 licensed products. The name “Chicken Soup” was chosen because of the use of chicken soup as a home remedy for the sick. The first Chicken Soup book, published by Health Communications, Inc., sold more than 2 million copies. There are now over 140 million copies in print and in 54 languages worldwide.

    In 2005 he co-wrote, along with Robert Allen, the book “Cracking the Millionaire Code” in which he highlights several self-made millionaires such as Bob Circosta, Michael Dell, Bill Gates, Alexander Graham Bell, Oprah Winfrey, and others, using them as examples of how to build wealth.

    One of Hansen’s most recent books, co-authored with Art Linkletter, is “How to Make the Rest of your Life The Best of your Life.”

    Hansen is currently working on a new book due out in September and co-authored with Robert Allen titled “Cash in a Flash.” It is the sequel to #1 The New York Times Best Seller, “The One Minute Millionaire.”

    [edit] AppearancesHansen has appeared on Oprah, CNN and The Today Show and was featured in Time, U.S. News & World Report, USA Today, The New York Times and Entrepreneur Magazine.
