Art & History Lecture and Book Signing by Robert Pennoyer The Pennoyer Newman Distinctive Garden Planters showroom presented a lecture entitled “Art & History” with Robert Pennoyer. After the insightful lecture, Mr. Pennoyer signed his book As it Was. The lecture discussed Pennoyer’s first-hand experience growing up as the grandson of J.P. Morgan. Pennoyer served on the boards of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Morgan Library (once his family’s home), and he spends time in New York and has served the United States during World War II as a young naval officer and later as the federal prosecutor and with the General Counsel in the Office of the Secretary of Defense during the Eisenhower years. His unshakable and passionate belief in democracy and all the great values of this country made it an evening not to be forgotten!
