On the flight, I read McCullough’s The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris (2012). Book club selection…(and we meet next Monday).
I didn’t finish, although I got through about fifty of the seventy years it covers. Samuel FB Morse—didn’t know he was a painter before he telegraphed. Speaking of painters: George PA Healy—how did I never note his name before?
In the later decades of the nineteenth century (the book covers 1830 to 1900), did American fellas have only one middle name?
I have through the weekend to find out….
