3 of 3 Parts: On the Trail of Educational Philanthropist George Peabody (1795-1869).

Continued:

(Why His Fleeting Fame?)

Why has GP, so lauded in his last years, been so largely forgotten. This may be due to the fleeting nature of fame. Each generation chooses its heroes who rise, flourish, are replaced, and often forgotten. This view is suggested by historian John Steele Gordon whose article, “Most Underrated Philanthropist,” American Heritage, Vol. 50, No. 3 (May-June 1999), pp. 68-69 reads in part: “Peabody is unjustly forgotten today, but his unprecedented generosity was greatly appreciated in his time.”

(Rediscovering GP Our Grand Adventure)

Looking back, we marvel at the good fortune, helpful people, and unusual turning points that enabled us to find and pursue a neglected American hero. Newly married, seeking challenges–when the GP research opportunity fell our way, we saw he was worth pursuing. As uncertain innocents we took risks, made mistakes, and were often rescued by friends and fate.

In retrospect “Rediscovering Educational Philanthropist George Peabody (1795-1869)” intermittently over the last 50 years has been a grand adventure.
