    1 thought on “Mary Curzon”

    1. I read "Mary Curzon" to find out more about George Curzon's world into which my 4th cousin, Grace Hinds, married. Both Mary Leiter Curzon (George’s first wife and heiress to one of the founders of Marshall Field of Chicago) and Grace Hinds (his second wife and heiress of Alfredo Duggan, an Argentine-Irish cattle baron) were Americans. Both were very beautiful and possessed qualities, including wealth, that supported Curzon in his ambitions as a superior statesman and politician in the United K [...]

    2. A charming little book on a charming lady - the American heiress who married George Curzon and became Vicereine in India, the highest post in the country ever bestowed on an American. It is not a big book, it is not that many pages and it is not written to reveal some new, big secrets about the lady (if there are any, they're not uncovered here - but then again it's not that type of book). The book was published in 1977 and perhaps aimed for an audience who was more aware of who George Curzon wa [...]

    3. Mary Curzon, daughter to one of the men that started Marshall Fields, was a young heiress that went to England and married into society. Although Almina de Rothschild was the true mistress of Highclere castle (Downton Abbey), it was Mary Curzon that Lady Cora Grantham was modeled afterI'd go on, but I can't; the author, Nigel Nicholson, son of Vita Sackville-West [don't you know] & Harold Nicholson wrote an incredibly boring and erudite account of Mary Curzon's life written as only a scholar [...]

    4. Although this was a very readable book - I didn't want not to finish it - I kept thinking when will she do something to warrant a book. She was a famous American Deb who married an Englishman who would become Viceroy of India but nothing much is said of her in India save that she was not very bright, that she was fiercely loyal to her husband and that her undying devotion was a prop for him during troubled times. The book is dedicated to her daughter (who was only two when her mother died) whom [...]

    5. Mary Leiter was the daughter of Levi Leiter, of Field & Leiter, later Marshall Field's. In gilded age Chicago, they were one of the leading families. In the late 1800s, Mary married George Curzon, the Viceroy of India and became Vicereine during the height of British empire. This was a garage-sale find, maybe not even in print anymore, but I found the descriptions of early Chicago, colonial India, and later London, fascinating.

    6. Although the topic was interesting enough, the book fell more and more into big swatches of quotes and letters. By the last couple of chapters, I was skimming rather than reading.
