Abstract

Doris Duke was the only child of James Buchanan (J.B.) Duke, a founder of the American Tobacco Company and Duke Energy Company and a benefactor of Duke University, and Nanaline Holt Duke. Inheriting a bulk of her father's estate in 1925, which included Duke Farms in New Jersey, Rough Point in Newport, R.I., and a mansion in New York City, Doris was soon dubbed by the press as "the richest girl in the world." Although Doris did her best to live a private life, she carried on the Duke family's pattern of philanthropy by contributing to a number of public causes such as the arts, historic preservation, and the environment. Doris Duke died in October 1993 at the age of 80. In her will she left the majority of her estate to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

The Doris Duke Photograph Collection was created by combining color and black and white photographs, slides, negatives, and other photographic formats contained in albums, boxes, picture frames, and envelopes.

Contents of the Collection

This series documents Doris Duke's life from the time she was an infant to a few years before and after her death in 1993. The photographs, slides, and negatives are grouped by topic and therefore do not always share the same creation date nor are they necessarily the same formats. Topics include social events, passport photos, life at her various residences, travel, her time as a war correspondent, her honeymoon, her many animals at the various residences, and her jewelry and dresses. Of particular interest are the color glass mounted slides of Doris Duke's trip to the Middle East in 1938.

RESTRICTED: Access to photographs in group PHDD050 are temporarily restricted and require prior written approval from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to view.
