By the early 1930s, club members Eugene E. DuPont and his cousin, Eugene DuPont, bought out the other members. The DuPont family continued to use the land through the 1960s

L'Art Decoratif de Leon Bakst

Léon Bakst (1866-1924) was a Russian portraitist and designer who spent much of his career in Paris.
