More thoughts on “A Restoration in Swarthmore”

This week’s Swarthmorean newspaper has a wonderful paragraph in the “Briefly Noted” section about Ezra T. Cresson, Sr. – the founder of the American Entomological Society.  He lived in the Cresson family farmhouse – part of the gentleman’s farm that included the mansion now being restored at Dartmouth and Swarthmore.  The Swarthmorean also printed this photo of the family, which Charles Cresson kindly shared with me when I marketed the tenant farmhouse.  Ezra T. Cresson, Sr. is at the center of the photo with his wife, Mary, and surrounded by their children, spouses and grandchildren. Be sure to pick up this week’s issue of the Swarthmorean to read more about this remarkable man.
