American Independent Cinema: Spike, Mike, Slackers, and Dykes

"John Pierson is one of the unsung heroes of the independent–film explosion of the last decade. Just ask him. A New York–based producer's rep, he was among the first to discover and help finance the debuts of such filmmakers as Spike Lee, Michael Moore, Richard Linklater, Rose Troche, and Kevin Smith. Pierson recounts these discoveries and describes the booming independent–film scene from the inside in his memoir Spike, Mike, Slackers & Dykes: A Guided Tour Across a Decade of American Independent Cinema, a book as personal and idiosyncratic as some of the films he has nurtured."

(Gary Susman, 1995, Phoenix Media/Communication Group)

Charles Paget Wade: a unique collection of minor objects

"Mr Wade, being both architect and antiquary, has adopted the house, its lineage and its idiosyncrasies. To him it is an inspiration. ...You will concede that it is no mere gallery, neither is it a museum, yet a more unique collection of minor objects of national interest would be difficult to name."

(A. E. Richardson, 1 October 1927, Country Life)

[The collection includes: furniture, musical instruments, craft tools, toys, clocks, bicycles and armour.]
