Longwood Credits

May 2024

I’m very grateful for your presenting an excerpt from Architecture, Men, Women and Money in America, 1600–1860 about Longwood in Natchez (October/November 1985). I’d like to add that most of the credit for salvaging that house and for making the Nutt correspondence and the Nutt portraits available to the public goes to Mrs. Ina May Ogletree McAdams of Austin, Texas. She transcribed all the letters, published them independently, and has made available to visitors to Longwood the results of her labors. She’s not only a pioneer, therefore, but a generous and competent scholar.

We hope you enjoy our work.
