They Lived In Westchester

Westchester has always attracted society's movers and shakers. The county's natural beauty, its vibrant commerce and industry, and its proximity to New York City often make it the first choice for a home for notables in a wide variety of fields — from the arts, politics and science to medicine, sports and entertainment. In the Summer 2010 issue of The Westchester Historian, author Kate Kelly launched a project to share short biographies of some of the most interesting and accomplished people who have called Westchester home. Authors Kate Kelly and Gray Williams here share short biographies of some of the most interesting and accomplished people who have called Westchester home.
