Lesley Strutt and Titania Truesdale.
Larrimac Golf Club, Rte 105, Chelsea QC.
James W. Strutt , pictured in 1956, left his mark on the landscape of the Gatineau Valley. The Strutt House (on Mountain Road) and other buildings he designed in the region, have received national and international attention.
The Strutt House was awarded a Getty Foundation conservation grant in the Keeping It Modern program. The house and an exhibit of modernist architecture, form the Modernist Pavilion in the 150 anniversary celebrations in the National Capital Region.
Lesley Strutt is Mr. Strutt’s oldest daughter and Titania Truesdale is writing Strutt’s biography. Together they will offer insight into a rare individual, and a beloved father.
