A Royal Success
More than 500 history buffs and supporters of the Grosse
Pointe Historical Society turned out for "A Royal
Celebration at Bellmor," the society's summer gala. The
event grossed $75,000 for educational and community
outreach programs celebrating local history. The event,
chaired by Mary Shafer, was held at the 1928 mansion,
Bellmor, designed for John Bell Moran by Robert O.
Derrick and currently owned by Randy and Judy Agley.
The home is on Windmill Pointe in Grosse Pointe Park.
Thanks to all who attended and to our most generous
donors listed below. Pictures of the evening are on the

From the Program Director
We were very fortunate to have several young people
working in the Alfred B and Ruth S. Moran Resource
Center this summer as interns. Victoria Slater, a senior at
Grosse Pointe South, worked on a web exhibit on her
impressions of student life in Grosse Pointe throughout
the years.
Elliott Shafer and Gretchen Valade each did community
service at GPHS this summer for Albion College. Elliott
was a tour guide at the Provencal-Weir House, organized
our map collection and worked at the registration table at
the Bellmor party. Gretchen worked as a student teacher
with me at the Provencal-Weir House with second graders
from Ferry and Kerby schools.
Kerri Marowske did a fantastic job of organizing and cre-
ating catalogs for the Resource Center. She will be a
sophomore at Albion in September and plans to be a
museum curator.
