William Middleton

BY // 08.31.17

The de Menil biographer on a Nelson daybed, at home in his living room/library bearing rare and important volumes essential for penning the de Menil biography. Middleton singles out: “a 1950 memoir by Jean Schlumberger, Dominique’s uncle; a volume on Pierre Barbe, the little-known French architect hired by the de Menils to design their Paris apartment, and who had a formative influence on their style; ‘The Prize,’ Daniel Yergin’s masterful 1991 study of the history of the oil industry; as well as ‘Houston: Land of the Big Rich,’ a 1951 book on the freewheeling young city, written by George Fuermann, a punchy writer for ‘The Houston Post.’”
