Raphael Pumpelly: gentleman geologist of the Gilded Age
Pumpelly's eminence as a scientist was recognized by his election to the National Academy of Sciences and to the presidency of the Geological Society of America, but he counted many artists and writers among his friends, including John La Farge and Henry Adams. He enjoyed a lifestyle that allowed time for independent research, European travel with his family, membership in gentlemen's clubs, and ownership of homes in Newport, Rhode Island, and Dublin, New Hampshire.
