The Pips held their annual dinners at membersa€™ homes, but Smitha€™s plan to host the 1941 Pips dinner at Thorneycroft on December 12th was aborted by Pearl Harbor. The Smiths had a year or so weekending at Thorneycroft, but wartime gasoline rationing made it difficult, Smith told Starrett in September 1942, and in May 1944 he sold it.
Most of Smitha€™s Irregular business, though, was transacted at his office in the General Motors Building at 1775 Broadway, New York. Highcroft Cottage had one large room, 15x21, with a flagstone floor, four windows on two sides (one nearly nine feet in length), and a fireplace at one end. We walked down to the garden to that little wooden cabin, in size not unlike Black Petera€™s, which was veritably the 221B of Edgara€™s dreams. Smith was supposed to go to Europe on business in September 1960 when he died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage, a few days after Prestigea€™s visit. In 2000, Epstein permitted Irregulars Henry Boote, Ted Friedman, Irving Kamil, Warren Randall, George Sturm, and David Galerstein to visit the property.
Epstein sold off eight acres in 1961, and the remainder will be developed now, for it lies in a very desirable part of Morristown. 1 See Glen Mirankera€™s chapter, a€?Prolegomenon to a History of The Pamphlet House,a€? in Irregular Records of the Early a€™Forties.
