The Charmed Life of James Cresson Parrish

James Parrish lacked none of the best things in life: a loving family (including his better known brother Samuel); lively friends with lively intellects; considerable wealth allowing for travel, handsome homes in beautiful places, and two passionate pursuits—golf and ice skating—to keep him active and stimulated into old age. This illustrated presentation will draw on Parrish’s 1916 diary, archived at the museum, as well as other sources, to offer insights into an era when the wealthy arguably enjoyed more privileges than at any time before or since. James Parrish, perfectly attuned to the times, had not just the money but the temperament to fully appreciate his good fortune. Co-sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum and Rogers Memorial Library.

When Church and State were the State: Puritans, Theocracy, and the Origins of American

Fr. Patrick Edwards begins with the Calvinist view of predestination which created uncertainty about achieving a place among the elect. He examines the psychological and social pressures that are the consequences of that uncertainty as well as the legacy/curse of governance and Cromwell in England. He explores and links the incidents that have had a particular impact on American polity and jurisprudence—the rise of Congregational and Presbyterian sensibilities of rebirth and regenerate life, indications of election and the ability for individuals to claim divine revelation.

Theodore Roosevelt’s Sagamore Hill

Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay was Theodore Roosevelt’s favorite place on earth. Bill Bleyer, author of “Sagamore Hill,” writes that no house better reflects the personality and interests of its owner. There Roosevelt reveled in the pleasures of family life with his wife and rambunctious children and there, during his presidency he hosted political and cultural luminaries. He spent his final years happily at Sagamore Hill and after his death in 1919 the house was preserved. Historian Bill Bleyer will share the fruits of his research for the book which includes many previously unpublished photographs and presents a room-by-room guide to the house and grounds, along with a fascinating account of bygone days at Roosevelt’s haven. Co-sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum and Rogers Memorial Library.
