                   PAGE 8         As staff will tell you on any tour, our building at 53 East 79th Street was built as a family

                                  home and converted into the New York Society Library in 1937. What you may not know

                                  is that the following decades saw another family at home here: the Thornberry family. As

                                  we move into the fall of our 260th year as an institution, I had the pleasure of chatting

                                  with Rose Mary Thornberry McLean and Dr. Terence Thornberry about their memories

                                  of growing up at the Library more than fifty years ago.

                            and Katherine Dice.
