(Obit)Augustus Jay, a member of one of the most distinguished of American families and for many years prominent in the social life of this city and Newport, died Thursday night of heart disease at his home, 960 ParkAvenue. He had been in failing health for several years and recently there had been successive occurrences of heart trouble.

Mr. Jay was born in Washington, D. C., on Oct. 27, 1850, the son ofPeter Augustus JAY and Josephine PEARSON Jay. His grandfather, also named Peter Augustus, was Recorder of this city and a leader of the NewYork bar during the first quarter of the last century. Mr. Jay’sgreat-grandfather, John Jay, was the first Chief Justice of the SupremeCourt of the United States, Secretary of State, Governor of New York, and one of the negotiators of the Treaty of Paris, which closed the Revolutionary War.

Mr. Jay was graduated from Harvard College in 1871 and from the Columbia Law School in 1876. Although admitted to the bar of this State he never practiced law, entering the diplomatic service instead. From 1885 to 1893 he was Secretary of the American Legation in Paris, and on his retirement from this office the French Government made him an officer of the Legion of Honor.

Mrs. Jay, who was Miss Emily Kane, daughter of Delancey Kane, survives her husband. His two sons also are living. The elder, Peter Augustus Jay, is counselor to the American Embassy at Rome and recently been Charge d’Affaires during a most important series of negotiations. Delancey Kane Jay was a Major in the war and made a brilliant record in action in France.

Among the clubs to which Mr. Jay belonged in this city were theKnickerbocker, Union, and University.

Emily Astor Kane, a sultry beauty known as “The Black Pearl” and a descendent of John Jacob Astor. Her great grand father John Kane, emigrated from Ireland to America in 1752. Though an ex-Catholic turned Anglican, he married Sybil Kent, daughter of evangelical Presbyterian minister, Elisha Kent, and soon became a prominent and wealthy merchant of Dutchess county, New York. Because he was a loyal Tory, the Continental Congress confiscated Kane’s property in the 1779 Act of Attainder. Kane moved his family behind British lines, first to Long Island and later to Nova Scotia, while he went to England to plead for the return of his assets. Though he did not dare return to the United States for some years, seven of his sons returned soon after the war and reestablished their father’s trading company, expanding it with a string of posts beginning in Albany and running to Buffalo, far into the interior of New York’s unsettled territory.

Her grandmother was Dorethea Astor, a daughter of John Jacob Astor.

1. Sixth Generation. PETER AUGUSTUS JAY+ Birth 23 AUG 1877 in New Port, Rhode Island Death 18 OCT 1933 in Washington, D C married SUSAN ALEXANDER McCOOK+ Birth 12 Sep 1879 in Sea Bright, New Jersey, Death Feb 1978 in Washington, District of Columbia, They were buried in the Jay Cemetery. They had two children. Their oldest daughter died post op while they were in Argentina. This was a terrible tragedy for them. He resigned from the foreign service and returned to Washington. After his death in 1933, his wife lived on in Washington and became a well known social hostess. She died at age 98 . She was a Vice President of the Jay Cemetery and they are both buried there.

  
The great great grandson of John Jay, Peter A. Jay studied at Eton College in England and graduated from Harvard in 1900. In 1902 he began a career with the US Foreign Service, which included assignments in Paris, Constantinople, Tokyo and Cairo. Jay served as US Minister to El Salvador from 1920 to 1921. From 1921 to 1925 he was Minister to Romania, where he assisted in negotiating that country’s repayment terms for wartime and post World War I development loans. In 1925 he was appointed US Ambassador to Argentina. He was present in May, 1926 when a bomb exploded at the door to the US embassy, an action that might have been a protest of the guilty verdicts in the Sacco and Vanzetti trials. Jay’s health began to fail while he was serving in Buenos Aries, and he resigned his post in 1926, afterwards living in retirement in Washington, DC. In 1928 he was appointed the US member of the Permanent International Commission, an organization created by the 1914 peace treaty between the United States and Spain. Peter A. Jay was the son in law of Civil War officer and prominent attorney John J. McCook.

 (ObitBio)Susan Mary Alsop, 86, the grand dame of Washington society whose Georgetown dinner parties epitomized the nexus of political power and social arrival in the 1960s, died Aug. 18 of complications from pneumonia at her home. Mrs. Alsop’s dining room was considered the absolute center of Georgetown’s social scene at a time when President John F. Kennedy’s arrival energized the once-sleepy capital. Her guests were the witty, the accomplished and the credentialed from the worlds of politics, media and diplomacy, and they used the opportunity to strike alliances, argue foreign affairs and bargain over the nation’s fortunes.

As the descendant of one of America’s first families (she was a Jay, as in John Jay, the first chief justice of the United States), she grew up privileged and firmly a member of the most elite Eastern Establishment circles. She dined with presidents and prime ministers, often at her home, and frequently at the salons of the rich and powerful, where the conversations often were continuations of parliamentary or embassy debates.

“All these stories will be in the history books,” she wrote to a friend in a letter, “but it does send a chill down one’s spine to hear them told by the actors in the drama.”

As a young woman, she had Sunday night suppers with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt in the White House. The president, armed with a martini shaker, would urge guests to dip into a bowl of Russian caviar. “They called it Uncle Joe’s Bounty. The idea was to eat as much of that as possible,” she said in one of her books. As a teenager, she had tea with Edith Wharton and was disappointed that the great writer was “a gossipy old girl,” she told a visitor 11 years ago. As the young wife of an embassy official in Paris, she was often seated beside British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (“He has decided I am . . . French . . . and nothing will deter him from speaking French to me.”) when she wasn’t drinking champagne with Noel Coward and the Duke of Windsor. In Washington, widowed and remarried to newspaper columnist Joe Alsop, she always had her hair done just in case she was invited for dinner at the Kennedy White House. Hers was the only private home that Kennedy visited on his inauguration night, stopping in for a bowl of terrapin soup. “Susan Mary loved to connect people together, young and old. Some were famous, some were not,” said her daughter, Anne Milliken. “All that mattered to her inquisitive mind was that her guests be engaged in living life.” Susan Mary Jay was born in Rome, the daughter of a diplomat, and grew up in South America and Europe. Her mother attended the wedding of Russia’s Nicholas and Alexandra in 1894. She attended Foxcroft, a boarding school, in Middleburg and took courses at Barnard College. When her mother offered the 18-year-old either a debutante ball or a trip abroad, the young woman immediately chose the trip. She began working at Vogue magazine in 1939 as a receptionist, writer and model. At the World’s Fair in Flushing, N.Y., that year, she and a friend were persuaded, for $75 an hour, to hang from parachutes in evening dresses until photographers were satisfied.

After World War II, she joined her husband, Bill Patten, in Paris, where he worked for the embassy. She immediately put them on the diplomatic social circuit, where she was described as “stylish, intelligent, loving and good, and very funny.” Christian Dior and other French designers let her wear their latest ball gowns for a pittance, which was necessary because she did not have the great wealth that others in her circle assumed. In Paris, she began giving the parties for which she later became so well-known. Her letters, collected into a book titled “To Marietta From Paris: 1945-1960” (1974), are dizzy with upper-case names: Greta Garbo, Ho Chi Minh, the Rothschilds. Somehow it doesn’t read like name-dropping, perhaps because she also routinely reports catching the flu or asks her girlfriend back in the States to send “three cans of Bon Ami” or other bathtub cleansing solutions. During the Paris period, she had a discreet affair with British diplomat Duff Cooper, engineered by his wife, according to Robert W. Merry’s biography of Joseph and Stewart Alsop, “Taking on the World” (1996). “It lasted until Duff’s death in 1953, and close friends concluded that it was the greatest love of Susan Mary’s life; but she never let it undermine her marriage or her family,” Merry wrote. Patten died in 1960, after years of battling emphysema. She married his college roommate, columnist Joseph Alsop, the next year, and moved to Washington, apparently with full knowledge that he was gay. She said he was a good stepfather to her daughter and son, Bill Patten, although memoirs from the period say he treated her rudely in public. The perfect hostess, however, knew how to smooth over embarrassing situations. When called upon to comment on the propriety of an incident in 1986 in which the Canadian ambassador’s wife publicly slapped her social secretary, Mrs. Alsop said the woman “must have been very tired, is all I can say. I think it just means two women were just worn out by people like myself dropping out at the last minute. . . . I think we just don’t talk about it. She’s such an important and marvelous friend. Nobody in Washington is going to fuss about it.” Religion, however, was not on the approved topic list for dinner parties. “I don’t think that anyone that I would be apt to be fond of would discuss it,” she said in a 1999 interview. “I mean, I go to Christ Church in Georgetown every Sunday and I wouldn’t miss it, but I’ve never talked about it. It’s very private. It’s inappropriate socially, absolutely. It’s not like foreign policy, not anything that would be discussed in my world, I’m afraid.”

She volunteered at D.C. General Hospital, served on the board of the Sasha Bruce House and “would have joined Common Cause if Alsop had not instructed her otherwise,” her daughter said. The couple divorced in 1973 but remained friends, and continued to give dinners together. He died in 1989. Mrs. Alsop began her literary career after the divorce. She first edited her letters, followed by “Lady Sackville: A Biography” (1978), “Yankees at the Court: The First Americans in Paris” (1982) and “The Congress Dances: Vienna 1814-1815” (1984). She became a contributing editor to Architectural Digest.

Her survivors, in addition to her son, of Worcester, Mass., and her daughter, of Salt Lake City, include seven grandchildren and a great-grandson.

A great Washington party, she once told a reporter, “is a question of electricity. It’s also luck. If you’re fortunate enough to get the secretary of state and the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the night of an international crisis. . . . It sounds ghoulish, but it’s something you want to have.”

Then there’s the advice of Lady Diana Cooper, which Mrs. Alsop passed on to her daughter: “Oh, just give them plenty of booze and hope it will go.”

2. ANNE EMILY PATTEN married JOHN WILLIAM MILLIKAN

1. Eighth Generation. William Samuel PATTEN, Jr Birth 1948 in United States Living He married his cousin Katharine BACON Birth 1950 in Paris, France Living. Their grandfathers were brothers. They had three children. The marriage ended with divorce. He remarried in 2000.

Wrote My Three Fathers, a remembrance of his mother Susan Mary.

Patten devotes the last portion of his book to his own struggles and their resolution. He had been advised that in writing the book he should be tougher on himself than anyone else, and he takes that advice to heart. He married a cousin, and they had a son and two daughters. Rather than seek to live in the mold of his mother’s set, Patten started down a different path. He and his family moved to Maine, where he was involved in real estate development and published weekly newspapers for 18 years. “It’s no coincidence that the sons of very famous people have to redefine their arena,” Patten observed. “They sense they will never be able to compete with family members who walked with presidents and kings.” The Pattens grew apart, and their marriage dissolved, touching off an emotional crisis that drove him to therapy. “In my 30s and 40s, I changed dramatically. The whole issue of anger was addressed,” Patten said. He went on to divinity school and then served as a minister of a small church in Hubbardston. He and Sydney bought a farm in Princeton in 1998 and married the following year. In 2000, they purchased a retreat in the French Pyrenees and moved from Princeton into Worcester. Wanting to share what he had learned about identifying and expressing his emotions, Patten founded the Men’s Resource Center and now helps prison inmates deal with their anger and sense of alienation. Asked how his children had reacted to his book, Patten replied with a smile, “My children were very polite, but it may be more than they wanted to know.

With utter disregard of his own safety Major Jay left the shelter of his command post and personally directed the attack of his battalion against the strongly fortified enemy position in and about Chateau du Diable north of the Vesle River. From the beginning of the attack he stood on a railroad embankment within 70 meters of the enemy line, fully exposed to their observation, and under a continuous and intense fire of concealed machine guns, rifles, and artillery. From this position he continued to direct, control, and encourage his officers and men during the progress of the attack, and even after he had been wounded and until exhausted by loss of blood. He refused to be evacuated until he had given full instructions to his second in command and until all wounded enlisted men had been evacuated. His exceptional example of physical and mental courage was an inspiration to all his officers and men under the most trying and dangerous conditions.

A Voice from Old New York: A Memoir of My Youth.

Instead of the characteristically self-deprecating title she has given the account of her youth in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with idyllic summers spent on an island off the coast of Maine, Maisie Houghton might well have entitled her beautifully written autobiography What Maisie Knew. For her penetrating account of growing up in a dysfunctional upper-class family is inevitably bound to evoke for the reader Henry James’s keenly observant protagonist. Both Maisies are astonishingly perceptive; both Maisies are trying to figure out how they fit in and who they are. Maisie Houghton’s father, Frankie Kinnicutt, great-grandson of the distinguished physician who attended Edith Wharton’s feckless husband and brother of a redoubtable dragon of interior decoration, Sister Parrish, was the handsome, charming, martini- loving scion of a distinguished Wall Street family. Her mother, Sybil Jay Kinnicutt, was a direct descendent of the first chief justice of the Supreme Court as well as of John Jacob Astor; as if that were not enough, she was also a royal descendant of six kings of France and England. Such dazzling ancestry was, of course, artfully downplayed, if tacitly taken for granted, by both parents in the plain-living, high-thinking world of Cambridge in the 1950s, all the more so as the large amounts of money implied had, by the time Maisie Kinnicutt was born in 1940, much diminished. Her father still had enough, however, that he wasn’t obliged to pursue the serious career in law that was intended for him; instead, following his years as a naval officer in World War II, he decided to indulge his nostalgia and prolong his youth by returning to Harvard to work in the admissions office, attend the Saturday football games, and hang out at the Porcellian Club

William Augustus WALDRON ’35, of Haverford, Pa., a former Trustee with deep family ties to Union who was a longtime Boston lawyer, former public official, and first full-time general counsel of the Massachusetts General Hospital, died April 29, 2009. He was 95. Later he served as commis- sioner of administration for Gov. Endicott Peabody, a special assistant attorney general, and a special counsel to the committee on rules of the House of Representatives. In the town of Wayland, Mass., where he lived for many years, he was chairman of the school committee and held other offices. In 1975, Waldron was engaged to organize the legal affairs of the Massachusetts General Hospital and he joined the hospital’s staff as its first full-time general counsel. He retired in 1981. He had also been a trustee of the Edmund Niles Huyck Foundation of Rensselaerville, N.Y., and the Taft School. He was married and divorced from Gertrude L. Nelson, of Chestnut Hill, Mass. and later was married to Sybil Jay Kinnicutt, of Cambridge, Mass., who died in 1997. He is survived by his son, Arthur N. Waldron, of Bryn Mawr, Pa., his daughter, Dorothy W. Waldron, of Wellesley, Mass. and his sister, Jessica N. Spacil of Seattle.

Gift to Harvard. I am deeply grateful to Jamie, Maisie, and the Houghton family for once more demonstrating their commitment to Harvard and their support for the arts.” James R. Houghton is the senior fellow of the Harvard Corporation and recently retired as chairman and CEO of Corning Inc., the world’s leading producer of optical fiber and a global manufacturer of laboratory glassware, electronics, and light bulbs. He is a 1958 graduate of Harvard College and a 1962 graduate of Harvard Business School.

4. Seventh Generation. THEODORA MORAN JAY+ Birth abt 1919 in New York Death 1968 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, married CHAUNCY DEVEREUX STILLMAN Birth Dec 14, 1907 in New York Death Jan 24, 1989 in New York. They had three daughters. Marriage ended in divorce. Married Philip RAHV Birth 1908 Death 1973 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts. She was buried in the Jay Cemetery.

Chauncey Devereux Stillman (1907-1989), was an heir to one of America’s great family banking fortunes. Mr. Stillman was a Harvard man (Class of 1929), a graduate of the Columbia School of Architecture, and at various times Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, director of the National Audubon Society and New York Botanical Garden, WW II air combat intelligence officer, and pioneer in soil and water conservation on his Dutchess County estate. His philanthropic father, Charles Chauncey Stillman (1877-1926), was one of Harvard’s greatest benefactors. His grandfather, James Jewett Stillman (1850-1918) was the 15th richest man in America, a distinction achieved by parlaying his father’s Texas banking and railroad interests into, among other things, controlling interest in the National City Bank of New York (now Citibank). At age 26, grandfather Stillman bankrolled Porfirio Diaz in the successful overthrow of the Mexican government. For his trouble he obtained unlimited riparian rights on the Rio Grande at Brownsville, Texas, plus valuable Mexican railroad concessions. Mr. Stillman’s great-grandfather, Charles, was a Texas land and banking mogul who founded the city of Brownsville. There was nothing parvenu about Chauncey Stillman. On January 27, 1939, Chauncey Stillman married Theodora Moran Jay, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. DeLancey Kane Jay of Westbury, Long Island. The bride was a descendant of John Jay, America’s first Chief Justice, and Edwin D. Morgan, Civil War Governor of New York. According to the Times, the ceremony was held in a “tiny chapel in the home of the bride’s grandmother, Mrs. Edwin D. Morgan.” Coincident with his marriage the groom hired architect Bancel LaFarge, a lingering Beaux Artiste in an era of unforgiving Art Moderne, to design a Georgian style house on the highest point of farmland he had been acquiring since 1937. Beaux Arts or no, LaFarge’s design — especially the interior finishes — is thoroughly modern. I have read, apropos of architecture, of the “scaled down taste” of the ’20s and ’30s. Wethersfield exemplifies the statement. It is a house for a man who can afford anything, but neither cares for nor wants to be bothered with the architectural elaboration of earlier generations. Immediately to the right of the entrance is a small chapel. After his 1949 divorce, Mr. Stillman converted to Catholicism and soon became an ardent proponent of all things Catholic. During his lifetime he endowed the Stillman Chair for Catholic Studies at Harvard and was sufficiently active in Catholic charities to be honored as a Gentiluomo de Sua Santita by the Holy See. On a more domestic level he converted the small reception room at Wethersfield into a private chapel.

OU Regent Huston Huffman envisioned the existence of a state-of-the-art physical fitness center at the University of Oklahoma. Because of his leadership and encouragement for its establishment, the OU Board of Regents named the Center in his honor. Three years after the groundbreaking ceremony in 1979, the Huston Huffman Center opened its doors to the University community in June of 1981 and immediately became a favorite place for students, faculty and staff alike. Funding for the facility was provided by student facilities system bonds, which were proposed by Governor David Boren and were finally approved by the State of Oklahoma in 1979. The Center is used more than 300,000 times each year by different members of the university family, who take advantage of the Center’s 104,000 square feet of training and athletic space, as well as the latest in health and sports science technology. A new student fee was started in 2001 to provide for an additional 47,200 square feet for the enhancement of the Center and its programs.

Huffman, a native of the state of New York, was born on November 27, 1913 in Albany. Huffman attended the Groton School of Massachusetts, and later received his bachelor’s degree in history from Yale in 1936. During his junior and senior years at Yale, Huffman was also captain of the Yale Boxing Squad. Upon graduation from Yale, Huffman came to Seminole, Oklahoma as a roughneck for Carter Oil Company (now Exxon). He later worked as a roughneck for Carter Oil as well as Texaco Oil until December of 1940. Huffman then entered the U.S. Navy and earned the rank of commander on the U.S.S. Finnegan, a destroyer escort. The Finnegan was stationed in the Pacific Theater during World War II, where Huffman was awarded the United States Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star for sinking a Japanese submarine.

With the close of World War II, Huffman returned to Oklahoma to work for Stanolind Oil (now AMOCO). Huffman’s work with Stanolind moved him from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Midland, Texas and even Bogota, Colombia. He married Augusta Jay on November 24, 1945 in Long Island, New York. Huffman decided to make Oklahoma his home and returned permanently to Oklahoma City in 1949. In 1950, he and Jack Malloy formed the Huffman & Malloy Oil Co., which was active in the oil business for the next thirty years. During his life in Oklahoma, Huffman was active in civic affairs, served on the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma City YMCA, and was a member and chairman of the Casady School Board of Trustees from 1962 to 1967.

In 1967, Governor Dewey Bartlett appointed Huffman to the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma. During his seven-year term as an OU Regent, Huffman supported several major improvements at the University, but he was especially known for his timeless effort to establish a recreation center which would serve all students and not just varsity athletes. Huffman died on March 5, 1980 at age 66 in his Oklahoma City home before the completion of the Huston Huffman Center.

Huston Huffman Founded in 1950, H. Huffman & Co. invests in oil and gas ventures generated by its staff, affilliates, and industry partners. Today the Company owns interests in over 1,000 wells and one million gross mineral acres. These interests are located in seventeen states. In 2007 the Company participated in the drilling of 100 oil and gas wells.
