Gimbel vs. Gimbel

gimbelsHere’s something I stumbled across a couple of days ago that I thought was pretty cool. It’s a 1935 piece about the Gimbel family in TIME magazine. 

President Bernard, most popular of the Gimbel clan, is friend to Gene Tunney and lesser celebrities, spends leisure hours entertaining richly on his Port Chester, N. Y. estate. Cousin Richard, no socialite, expresses himself by pride in his four children and by collecting the works of Edgar Allan Poe whose cottage on Brandywine Street he endowed and refurnished. Between Cousin Bernard and Cousin Richard bad feeling has long existed.
