James, Arthur Curtiss
Andrews, Emma B. Journal on the Bedawin, Volume 19 : 1912-1913.
A wealthy Newport neighbor of Theodore Davis, James and his wife Harriet designed and built 'Beacon Hill House' in 1909 in one of the most desirable spots in the town, atop Aquidneck Island. A retiring figure who gave generously to charity, James left socializing to his wife. He was an avid yachtsman, and one of his passions was his yacht the 'Aloha', which was one of the largest yachts of its day. In the diary entry for Dec. 27th 1912 Emma mentions that he and his wife had sailed to Egypt from Newport.
