The details (from wikipedia)


Kingdon Gould, Sr. (August 15, 1887 – November 7, 1945) was a financier and champion polo player.


He was born on August 15, 1887 in Manhattan, New York City to George Jay Gould I and Edith M. Kingdon. He attended Columbia University and graduated in 1909. He served as an officer in World War I.

He married Annunziata Camilla Maria Lucci (1890-1961) on July 2, 1917 in Manhattan, New York City. Together they had the following children:

  • Silvia Annunziata Gould (1919-1980)
  • Edith Kingdon Gould (1920-2004) who married Guy Martin (1911-?)
  • Kingdon Gould, Jr. (1925-) was Ambassador to Luxembourg and the Netherlands under Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford.

Time wrote on July 27, 1942 :

To beat the gas & rubber shortage Manhattan’s Mrs. Kingdon Gould took the old family carriages out of moth balls, sent Daughter Edith to buy a pair of horses. Inexperienced Daughter Edith came back with a pair of brewery-truck-model Percherons.


Kingdon died on November 7, 1945. He was buried in his father’s mausoleum in Woodlawn Cemetery.
