.@dubosetn, the home of Camp Gailor-Maxon each year, is full of surprises. Here, a bust of the Rev. Alfred Duane Pell looks out a side entrance to the downstairs chapel. Alfred Duane Pell, son graduated from Columbia College in 1887. Subsequently, he studied theology, taking orders in the Episcopal Church, and he became rector of the Church of the Resurrection in New York City. He was known as one of the foremost collectors of objects of art, especially in porcelain and silver, which he acquired during his travels abroad. Portions of his extensive collections have been presented by him to various institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia Museum in Fairmount Park, the Cincinnati Museum, the Chicago Museum of Art, and the Museum of Princeton University. #themoreyouknow
