John Hay, Friend of Giants:  The Man and Life connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt


Mark Twain believed that John Hay was "the only one of whom the entire nation is proud. Proud and thankful." Theodore Roosevelt once said of John Hay, "he was the most delightful man to talk to I ever met, for in his conversation he continually made out of hand those delightful epigrammatic remarks which we would all like to make."  We are pleased to welcome author and historian Philip McFarland back to The Fells. Mr. McFarland will speak about his recently published book, John Hay, Friend of Giants; the Man and Life Connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt. The presentation will take place on the Veranda of the Main House. Members: $10, non-members: $15. Advanced registration is requested, though walk-ins are welcome. Register online here or call 603-763-4789 ext 3.

He majored in history at Oberlin College, served for 3 1/2 years in the U.S. Navy, then took a degree in English at Cambridge University.
