'Gray Crag', the Forsyth Wickes estate designed by Delano & Aldrich c. 1909 in Tuxedo, New York. Wickes, a lawyer and co-founder of the Columbia Law Review, was a partner with the firm of Wickes, Riddell, Bloomer, Jacobi & McGuire. He was also a noted collector of 18th century French art and porcelains which his 1964 NYTimes obituary called "outstanding". The McMillan Company's Great Private Collections published in 1963 listed the Wickes collection as one of the 26 outstanding collections in the world and one of 10 in the United States. The home is extant (but yet to be located).
