BARRY THOMSON CHRONICLES DORIS DUKE—“Duchess of Somerset County”
Location:  Clarence Dillon Public Library
 
The press labeled her at birth “The richest little girl in New Jersey.”  For sure she lived an extravagant, tumultuous tabloid life, her many husbands and homes included.  Less chronicled was her and her father’s – Tobacco King James Duke – public beneficence, especially our local treasure The Duke Gardens.  Who better to tell the whole story than  Barry?
