Dr. Richard Mohr will tell the story of Frank Ingerson and George Dennison (The Boys) who establish a school dedicated to the life style, methods, and aesthetic of the American Arts & Crafts Movement in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California. The history of Ingerson and Dennison is shown through their dedication to the movement through the adoption of its lifestyle, their later careers as interior designers to the stars of Hollywood and the rich and famous (Olivia de Havilland, Joan Fontaine, the Rockefellers, etc) and their own love story in “Partners In Beauty: The Boys, the Art and the Joy of Cathedral Oaks.”
