When their Jewish heritage and progressive philosophies made the Bondy family a target of the Nazi regime, they were forced to sell their school and start anew in America. Max and Gertrud Bondy first opened their innovative school in Windsor, Vermont, and moved the campus to Lenox, Massachusetts, in 1944. Windsor Mountain School was ahead of its time--the faculty honored diversity, and it became the first co-ed integrated boarding school in Berkshire County. Families like the Belafontes, Poitiers and Campanellas were attracted to the school for its multicultural and international curriculum. From its golden age to the rock-and-roll era, Windsor Mountain strived to stay true to its mission until hard financial times forced the school to close in 1975. Roselle Kline Chartock captures the spirit of this Berkshire boarding school that still lives on in the hearts of its alumni.

"People of Windsor Mountain" captures the flavor of liberal-progressive boarding school life in America in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. Windsor Mountain, located in Lenox, Massachusetts, was a progressive boarding school that was socially liberal and politically left-wing. What was unique about Windsor was its people. Faculty and students were an eclectic bunch of artists, scholars, beatniks, hippies, nerds, misfits, and children of the famous and almost-famous. Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier sent their children there. Dr. Max Jacobson, the infamous "Dr. Feelgood," sent his daughter there. All these children, and many more, are interviewed in this book. About the Author: Rick Goeld is the author of the non-fiction People of Windsor Mountain, and novels "Sex, Lies, and Soybeans" and "Searching for Steely Dan. People of Windsor Mountain is a unique look into life at a liberal-progressive boarding school in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. Goeld attended Windsor Mountain, located in Lenox, Massachusetts, from 1961-63. The book combines a history of the school with the personal stories of dozens of alumni and former faculty, including the children of Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, and Dr. Max Jacobson, the infamous Dr. Feelgood. Goeld';s novels reflect his interests in a broad range of offbeat subjects. Sex, Lies, and Soybeans is a sexy techno-romp with timely messages about genetically-engineered foods and the abuse of corporate power. This story takes place in a near-future where soy has become the world's primary source of protein. When a beautiful Texas State Senator blocks soy-industry-sponsored legislation, lobbyists decide to twist a few arms - or worse - to change her mind."Searching for Steely Dan, is a compelling coming-of-age story that sprung from Goeld's own near-obsession with the rock group Steely Dan. Protagonist Eddie Zittner is a 29-year-old Jersey boy with no job, no ambition, and a failing marriage. His obsessive behavior prompts his wife to dump him, and he takes to the sidewalks of Manhattan, searching for answers, searching for inspiration, searching for . Goeld was born in New York City, and grew up in Miami, Florida. After graduating from Windsor Mountain, he earned engineering degrees at MIT and Northeastern and had a long career in the high-tech electronics industry. Now semi-retired, he and his wife live in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Decoration of Houses, a manual of interior design written by Edith Wharton with architect Ogden Codman, was first published in 1897. In the book, the authors denounced Victorian-style interior decoration and interior design, especially those rooms that were decorated with heavy window curtains, Victorian bric-a-brac and overstuffed furniture. They argued that such rooms emphasized upholstery at the expense of proper space planning and architectural design and were, therefore, uncomfortable and rarely used. Wharton and Codman advocated the creation of houses with rooms decorated with strong architectural wall and ceiling treatments, accentuated by well-suited furniture, rooms based on simple, classical design principles such as symmetry and proportion and a sense of architectural balance. The Decoration of Houses is considered a seminal work and its success led to the emergence of professional decorators working in the manner advocated by its authors.
