Peggy Adler Presented with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by Marquis Who's Who

    CLINTON, CT, October 18, 2017 — Marquis Who’s Who, the world premiere publisher of biographical profiles is proud to present Peggy Adler with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ms. Adler is an American author and illustrator of children’s books and an investigative researcher, who additionally served for eight years as a Police Commissioner.

She was born in New York City, grew up in Bayside, Queens, and graduated from P.S.41 (the Crocheron School) and Bayside High School before matriculating at Bennington College in September 1959.

Ms. Adler began her professional career as an illustrator in 1958, at the age of sixteen, when she was co-illustrator of her father’s book Weather In Your Life. That same year, she was the sole illustrator of Hot and Cold, both published by The John Day Company of New York City.

Ms. Adler continued illustrating for New York publishers while a student at Bennington and left college at the end of 1960, halfway through her sophomore year, to learn more about the world of publishing — working at Golden Press in both editorial and production and later at FAO Schwarz selling children’s books (to learn more about what was on the market). She also matriculated at Columbia University for the 1962 Spring semester.

At that time she authored as well as illustrated The Adler Book of Puzzles and Riddles which received an excellent review in The New York Times Sunday Book Review section and in 1962, moved to New Haven, Connecticut where she continued to write and illustrate – her next book being “The Second Adler Book of Puzzles and Riddles”, also published by The John Day Company.

In September 1969 Ms. Adler coordinated the world premiere of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” for 20th Century Fox and handled the ticket sales and management of the premiere for Yale University. At that same time, and for years to come, she continued illustrating, with work published by The John Day Company, Little, Brown & Company, the Journal of Theoretical Biology, the Journal of Algebra, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, World Scientific Publishing, the Bronx Zoo, and the Humane Society of the United States. In the mid-1970s Ms. Adler returned to writing, as well as illustrating, when Franklin Watts published her book, Metric Puzzles, followed shortly thereafter by Math Puzzles and Geography Puzzles.

During the 1980s, Ms. Adler worked as an agent for the Jan J. Agency in New York City and then as a freelance talent scout for Cuzzins Management, also of New York. Then from 1983-1993 she served as a personal manager, as well as a public relations consultant, in Madison, Connecticut.

In 1990, Ms. Adler began a decade of work under the license of a private investigator, doing research and document retrieval at town halls and court houses in Connecticut, for civil and criminal cases for the defense.

In 1991, she was retained by self proclaimed arms dealer and money launderer, Richard Brenneke, to co-author his autobiography. Discovering that he was a con artist who was drawing her into literary fraud, Ms. Adler contacted former CIA analyst-turned-journalist, Frank Snepp, and with him, exposed Brenneke and subsequently proved that the October Surprise conspiracy was a hoax, as chronicled in the series of articles Snepp wrote for the Village Voice with Ms. Adler’s research assistance. Her work was the subject of a chapter in Robert Parry’s book, “Trick or Treason: The October Surprise Mystery” and she was interviewed by PBS’ “Frontline” in this regard. In mid-1992, learning that a Congressional Task Force was investigating whether or not there actually had been an October Surprise, Ms. Adler contacted investigative journalist and author Steven Emerson, who put her in touch with the Task Force so that she could turn over to them the seventy cartons of documents she’d hauled east from Brenneke’s home in Portland, Oregon, in order to write his memoirs. Subsequently, she worked as a consultant to the Task Force, and assisted in drafting and editing a portion of the Brenneke section of their final report. And according to Task Force’ Deputy Majority Counsel, Michael Zeldin, her work there “met and exceeded every expectation”.

In 2000 and 2001, Ms. Adler was the researcher for journalist and author Ron Rosenbaum’s articles about Yale’s fabled Skull and Bones, which were published in The New York Observer.

Ms. Adler spent over a year organizing the Edgar Rice Burroughs Bibliophiles’ 2015 Convention (aka Dum Dum), which she then hosted over a four day period in her home town of Clinton, Connecticut. Members of Edgar Rice Burroughs (ERB) family, along with ERB comic strip writers & artists, authors of ERB related books; and Burroughs Bibliophiles came from all over North America to celebrate Burroughs’ genius. A movie marathon, panel discussions, presentations, a “Comic Con” workshop for kids, a Tarzan yell competition (judged by members of ERB’s family) and a video tribute to the late Denny Miller were the high lights of the convention. The guest of honor and banquet speaker was Tony Award winner, William Berloni, talking about training animals for performance. And the 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award was given, posthumously, to Denny Miller, who in 1959 was the 12th motion picture Tarzan.

An active member of every community in which she has lived, Ms. Adler spent eight years as a Police Commissioner in the shoreline town of Clinton, Connecticut. There, she has also served on the Design Review Board (200-2007), Historic District Commission (2001-2006; 2017-), and Charter Revision Commission (1997-98 & 2003-04). For Clinton’s Department of Parks & Recreation she coached 1st, 2nd & 3rd grade girls softball (2008-2014) and for Clinton’s Rotary, did the publicity for their annual Cancer Relief Fund Drive Walk-a-thon for seven years. Previously Ms. Adler served on the Board of The Arts Council of Greater New Haven, Planned Parenthood of Greater New Haven, Shoreline Youth Theater and the Madison Arts and Science Council. Additionally, for eight years, Ms. Adler served as the program coordinator for the New England Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers. She simultaneously served on their Board of Directors and was Chairman for three years. In 2001, Ms. Adler was awarded the General Richard G. Stilwell Chairman’s Award by the Association of Former Intelligence Officers for her work with the New England Chapter. Previously, Ms. Adler was honored to be the 1998 recipient of the Duck Island Yacht Club’s Corinthian Award.

Ms. Adler has been highlighted in more than 40 editions of Who’s Who, including “Who’s Who in America”, “Who’s Who in the World”, “Who’s Who in Entertainment” and “Who’s Who of American Women”, among others. Therefore, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to her professions and the Marquis Who’s Who community, Peggy Adler has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website.

Annual Edward Hersey and Gordon Lees Exhibition Returns to York Fine Arts

York’s newest fine art exhibition features work from two of today’s leading landscape artists.

York, United Kingdom, October 18, 2017 –(PR.com)– York Fine Arts is delighted to announce its highly anticipated annual Edward Hersey and Gordon Lees exhibition. The exhibition brings together an exceptional collection of original paintings from two leading British artists whose work consistently captures and preserves the classic charm of Britain’s most beloved towns and landscapes.

For the discerning collector or first time buyer, the exhibition is a chance to view an exclusive collection of work from two of the gallery’s most recognised artists. From Edward Hersey’s warming, in situ farmhouses to Gordon Lees’ tranquil winter village scenes, the exhibition features a wide range of paintings to suit a variety of tastes.

Renowned for his distinct style and attention to the details of the British countryside, Edward Hersey has forged a loyal international following. Painting a fine line between realist and idealist, Hersey’s work reflects the rustic beauty of pastoral life with simultaneous subtlety and finesse. His application of mood and lighting has made him one of the most highly sought after traditional painters of his generation.

Nostalgically capturing the beauty of British landscapes and towns, Gordon Lees is an established international investment favourite. His romantic style enables him to capture the idyllic atmosphere of Britain’s towns and villages, and to reflect the traditional values of a rural England now so sadly missed. It is believed that Gordon’s work was the inspiration for the trademark village scenes of Thomas Kinkade, one of America’s most prolific artists, who recognised Gordon as “The Original Master of Light.” Following Kinkade’s passing in 2012, Gordon Lees’ work has shown a surge in transatlantic sales.

All paintings at the exhibition are available to purchase and range from £440 to £24,885. Included is the magnificent, specially commissioned “Riverside Farm” by Edward Hersey. A selection of signed limited edition prints by both artists is also available from £88.

For press enquiries or additional images, please telephone Deanna Dawkins on 01904 634221.

The exhibition opens on Friday, 17 November and runs until Sunday, 10 December 2017. Due to expected high volume of interest, an early viewing is recommended.
