      Marian Graves "Mamie" (Anthon) Fish
      Birth: Jun. 8, 1853; New York, New York County (Manhattan), New York, USA
      Death: May 25, 1915; Glenclyffe, Putnam County, New York, USA

      Legendary hostess and social leader at the turn of the Twentieth Century. Daughter of William Henry Anthon ( 1827 - 1875 ), lawyer, and assemblyman for the Staten Island district, and Sarah Atwood Meert. Married on June 1st, 1876 to Stuyvesant Fish ( 1851 - 1923 ), president of the Illinois Central Railroad, and director of the National Park Bank of New York City. Mrs. Fish was considered the most notable Society woman of New York and Newport, and at the passing of 'the' Mrs. Astor in 1908, had been regarded as her successor as a leader. Mrs. Fish gave the most original and sparkling entertainments of any New York hostess. At her town house, 25 East 78th Street, she entertained with a series of dinners followed by various forms of entertainment at which all sorts of novelties were given to amuse the guests. At 'Glenclyffe', her country home at Garrison-on-Hudson, in the Autumn and Spring, she entertained with many weekend house parties ~ and each Autumn there were Hallowe'en dances in the house for the owners of country estates, round about, and her own house guests, and in the carriage house for the servants and their guests. At her Newport cottage, 'Crossways', she gave, each season, a ball that was always the first of its kind. In the summer of 1914, her last in Newport, she gave a "Flower Ball"; the guests coming dressed as flowers ~ and in the summer of 1913, perhaps, her most original festivity took place. It was a "Mother Goose Ball", and guests came dressed as characters from Mother Goose tales; the hostess arraying herself as the 'Fairy Queen'. She was always in Newport for the summer season, and when in Europe returned in time for it. Her annual "Harvest Festival Ball" always brought the Newport Season to its close. She was believed to be in the best of health ~ she was fond of walking and always, when at 'Glenclyffe', took long walks. On the day before she died she took a long tour in the afternoon, returned fatigued, and retired to her room; and the following day remained there. Shortly after luncheon Dr. Richard Giles of neighboring Cold Spring was summoned, but she gradually sank to her death; her husband being with her at the time. The funeral service was held at the Church of St. Philip-in-the-Highlands, near 'Glenclyffe' estate. Mrs. Fish's list of personal charities was a large one. These she carefully concealed, but it was well known to her intimates that anyone in distress, of whom she knew, did not appeal to her in vain. Mrs. Fish was noted for her strong personality; imaginative, independent, outspoken, warm hearted and generous ~ and if she liked a person it made no difference what social position they possessed. She made many warm and lasting friendships. Marian Graves Anthon Fish died of a cerebral hemorrhage at her beloved country estate, 'Glenclyffe', at Garrison-on-Hudson, shortly before her thirty-ninth wedding anniversary, and her own birthday celebrations, that were being planned there.
