The Sag Harbor Historical Society Listens To Bill Pickens At The American Hotel

The Sag Harbor Historical Society’s membership and guests enjoyed an animated lecture by William “Bill” Pickens at the American Hotel on Sunday. Pickens spoke about his rich family history from the time of Henry IV to the present day. Pickens’ family in attendance were his wife Pat and children John and Kim. Highlights of the talk included associations with Langston Hughes, Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson and Pickens’ cousin Paul Robeson. Guests at this sold-out event included Fran Ferriss, E. T. Williams and his sister JoAnne Williams Carter, Jean Held and Dorothy Zaykowski. Many guests chatted about the new Parrish Art Museum, which most had already visited. Guests were served Martha Clara’s Vognier with lunch, and local farmer Bette Lacina assured her foodie tablemates that there are still plenty of local carrots, greens, potatoes and herbs available.
