-- COLLECTION PROVIDES PARTICULAR INSIGHT INTO PHILADELPHIA HISTORY --
New York, N.Y. -- On November 29th Sotheby’s in New York will offer for sale The Americana Library of Laird U. Park
Jr. This wide-ranging collection of books, manuscripts and important letters incorporates all aspects of American
history with a particular richness in western Americana and in items relating to the history of Philadelphia. Villanova
native Laird Park, Jr. built his library upon a foundation of books and spectacular, historical manuscripts amassed by
his mother Irene Dearnley Park; and he coupled that with his passion for items relating to the history of Philadelphia
and its most famous son, Benjamin Franklin. The collection is estimated to bring $4/6 million.
Laird Utilus Park Jr died on 14 January 2001 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA,
Coming from The Hill, Laird was on freshman crew and captained the varsity. Majoring in mechanical engineering, he was president of Colonial Club. He roomed with George Wadsworth until he enlisted in the Navy in 1943, serving on a destroyer escort in the Pacific, achieving the rank of ensign. He returned to Princeton to get his degree in economics in 1947.
Laird started his career with Smith, Kline and French, then rose to the presidency of Troemer, Inc., a manufacturer of laboratory apparatus. He was active in Eisenhower's 1953 campaign and served with the Red Cross and the United Fund. He was a board member of the Independence Seaport Museum and the Library Co. of Philadelphia.
He collected Americana and traveled and read widely. He never missed a major reunion and attended 11 others, as well. Always easy to spot at six feet, five inches tall, we shall miss his friendly demeanor, his keen sense of humor, and his love of Princeton. With his family, we deeply share his loss.
