“The Boutonnières of Mr. Untermyer” – The New Yorker (May 18, 1940)

This is the last post on Mr. Samuel Untermyer, who was one of the first people to own (what is now) The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn in California.

In the article by The New Yorker, which was written after Untermyer’s death in March, 1940 by Geoffrey T. Hellman, the reader learns about another of Untermyer’s estates, Greystone, in New York.

It does mention that “during the last few years, Mr. Untermyer wintered in Palm Springs, where he died” (p. 58).

As mentioned previously, Untermyer was a lover of flowers. This article talks about his affection for floral, much from the author taking a tour of the estate in New York.
