A potent swordsman is Architect William Hamilton Russell. When not designing country houses for tycoons in Newport, Islip and Wheatley Hills, he represents the U. S. on international fencing teams. He was U. S. champion in 1916, 1919, 1923. He was on the Olympic Team at Antwerp in 1920 and Paris in 1924. Last week he exhibited a whole case full of medals and a gold-plated rapier from his admirers in the Fencers’ Club.
