Article Title

Editor’s Note


This issue of Newport History includes three articles by local authors with diverse interests and backgrounds. They write respectively about a not-so-famous Newport architect, the now-defunct Jamestown Bridge, and a long-lost Newport estate with intriguing connections to ancient Egypt. The little-recognized Newport architect John Dixon Johnston is the subject of Ronald J. Onorato article. The pictorial essay devoted to the recently demolished Jamestown Bridge is written by Sue Madden, Rosemary Enright and Matt Kierstead. The last article is on the Newport estate of Theodore M. Davis by Jane Carey.
