Jay Kelley: Much information on GOOGLE - better than my fading memory. However two notes: 1. The Princeton Alumni Weekly lists your grandfather's estate as "Gladwyne" - It was "Glenmoore" - a much different area of suburban Philadelphia.
2. Also it gives the date of your grandmother's death. She was killed in a terrible auto accident; your grandfather was driving his Rolls Royce, on a back country road, in a terrible foggy night, and went off the road, smashing into a tree, or pole. Long before seat belts or air bags, and I believe she was killed instantly. I was also out driving that night and felt lucky to get home without an accident.
All the best, Hank R.
