On Wednesday, December 9 the Young Fellows of the Morgan hosted Mr. Morgan's Winter Gala, an annual holiday celebration. Elegantly-attired guests enjoyed cocktails, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a festive jazz trio in Pierpont Morgan's historic 1906 Library and Study. The original manuscript of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens was on view for guests to enjoy, and Declan Kiely, Robert H. Taylor Curator and Department Head, Literary and Historical Manuscripts, gave a dramatic reading of a passage from this holiday favorite. Throughout the evening, all of the Morgan’s historic rooms and galleries were open for guests to view exceptional exhibitions of Henri Matisse, Ernest Hemingway, and the sculptor Martin Puryear.
