Riassunto: In a career that spanned more than half a century and established him as the dean of society photographers, Bert Morgan spent many weekends photographing Southampton's wealthy summer residents. This volume presents a sampling from the thousands of photograph Morgan took of Southampton's rich and famous at their exclusive clubs or as guests at private parties, weddings and galas. Vanderbilts, Astors, Dukes, Wanamakers, Fords, Belmonts, Guests and many other members of America's richest families are shown in public and private moments. Photographs of the Jacqueline (Bouvier) Kennedy competing in a local horse show at age five were selected from more than 500 photographs Morgan took of the Bouviers amd the Kennedys. Morgan penetrated the inner circles of high society, impressing his subjects with his gentle professionalism and discretion. Because they trusted him never to show them in an unkind way and were charmed by his geniality, they invited him to their parties and were happy to oblige when he asked them to pause for a moment or two on their way to the beach. The pleasing prints would be sent to his subjects for purchase as well as to fashionable publications like Town & Country, The Social Spectator and Vogue
