1 FAY INGALLS 1907 - 1919 ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN LETTERS BY FAMED INDUSTRIALIST, OUTDOORSMAN AND SON OF RAILROAD MAGNATE M.E. INGALLS
NEW YORK NY 1907 Very Good English 
On offer is a large archive of handwritten letters by Fay Ingalls [1882-1957] noted outdoorsman. He was the son of Melville Ezra Ingalls, the railroad magnate. Fay was a Wall Street lawyer who moved to business. At Pratt & Whitney he played an important part in the munitions industry during World War I. He lacked the hard sell of his father and found the greed & corruption of lower Manhattan distasteful & depressing. In 1922 he took over the presidency of VHS Co., moving to Virginia. There he built the Cascades Golf Course at his home called "Homestead." During WW II the Japanese diplomats were lodged in The Homestead, where their activities were monitored by the state department and FBI. After the war their hotel prospered. He was also a noted outdoorsman. Offered here are 45 letters from Fay to his wife Rachel [1885-1966], noted horsewoman. These run 1909-1919, mostly 4 pages each. The letters are long newsy, intimate letters to his wife and some of his children. Some news of business when it interferes with vacations of communication. All appear to have envelopes. Overall VG.
