Stewart R. Mott, the eccentric son of Charles Mott, died on June 13. In addition to supporting numerous progressive causes, Stewart was known for "cultivating a large garden atop his Manhattan penthouse, complete with 460 plant species (including 17 types of radishes) and a chicken coop," according to his New York Times obituary by Douglas Martin.

Stewart Mott was a Good Man. he used the money daddy set Him up with not on obscene gaudy toys, but quietly helped the Poor. Planned Parenthood owes a lot to Him, among others. the new trend of urban gardening? He was doing it before it was cool....RIP Stewart.ReplyDelete
He's a great example of someone born with money using it to improve the country. Too bad more of today's ultra rich don't have the same ideals.ReplyDelete
