William Stone : Of Albany and Peterhouse Paperback / softback
by Sam Osmond
William Stone died in 1958 at the age of 101, leaving a fortune to his Cambridge College, Peterhouse.
How he made his fortune is a mystery - he never had a paid job, never married, and was one of seven children.
But he lived a full life, travelling the world and in London where he rode daily in Rotten Row in Hyde Park, had many adventures and attended every theatrical first night.
He stood for parliament, helped preserve the historic Albany chambers and told a rich series of anecdotes about his time as `Squire of Piccadilly'.
