S. Dillon Ripley 1913 - 2001


He was a man who enjoyed his life and work to the fullest. I recall a summer afternoon at his house in western Connecticut. He was sitting on the patio, drinking a glass of wine and looking out over the pond he built so long ago at his beloved ducks and geese. A pair of Cochin bantam hens swirled around his feet like windup toys. A man at ease. And there it was—that impish smile.
