A long, uninhabited house, a lavish collection of dolls, and a unionized minor league baseball team are among the subjects of a New York Times article about Clark Street. Among the other topics mentioned in the article are the Lewis and Clark expedition and the desire of the Clarkes to be Lewis and Clark for the rest of their lives.

Huguette Clark’s lavish, uninhabited homes

Huguette Clark's lavish, uninhabited homes

When Huguette Clark died in 2011, she had a $300 million fortune. She had lived a life of privilege, and she had a number of lavish, uninhabited homes.

When she died, Huguette left her estate to a group of beneficiaries, including a nurse, a lawyer, and a charitable foundation. However, 19 relatives have filed a lawsuit against these beneficiaries, accusing them of taking advantage of the reclusive heiress.

One of the beneficiaries of Huguette’s will is a Filipino-born nurse named Hadassah Peri. Huguette also left $30 million to her nurse companion. But it’s not clear how Hadassah Peri got so much money from Huguette.

Aside from her $300 million fortune, Huguette Clark owned three lavish homes in California and New York. Two of them have been empty for more than fifty years.

Lewis and Clark want to be Lewis and Clark forever

If you’re a fan of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, you’ve probably seen a lot of monuments and stamps commemorating this historic journey. These monuments, of course, have sparked controversy, especially in the context of Indian treaties.

Nevertheless, there’s a lot to see and learn about the men who blazed a new trail across America. For one thing, the monuments offer a glimpse into the public’s perception of Clark and his fellow explorers.

While the Corps of Discovery included several famous personalities, including George Washington and John Adams, Clark was the star. He led the expedition and was named the governor of Louisiana Territory.

As for his own personal history, William Clark was born in Virginia in 1770. His family moved to Kentucky when he was young. Later, Clark joined the regular Army.

Huguette Clark’s collection of dolls

Huguette Clark, an American heiress, was a collector of dolls for decades. She owned a collection of antique French bebes and early Japanese cultural dolls. In addition, she gathered automata from the French golden age of 1860-1890.

When she died at the age of 104, Huguette Clark left behind a collection of rare and expensive dolls. These dolls will be auctioned off in January 2020, and the proceeds will benefit the Bellosguardo Foundation, which looks after historical coastal property in Santa Barbara.

Huguette Clark was a private woman who maintained a reclusive lifestyle. Her heiress status made her the subject of several books, including the New York Times best-seller Empty Mansions. During her life, Clark lived in two different homes. A 42-room Fifth Avenue apartment, and an estate in California.

Huguette Clark’s unionization of minor league players

In the past two and a half weeks, minor league players have finally gotten the unionization of their dreams. Their union has been around for more than a century, but it wasn’t until last year that Major League Baseball (MLB) voluntarily recognized it.

To understand the major league’s announcement of its intention to honor the unionization of its minor league players, you have to look at the history of baseball, especially the game’s earliest days. Before Major League Baseball took over minor leagues in 2016, players were subjected to poor pay and working conditions.

The most recent unionization effort came about as a result of minor league players complaining about their plight. Many of them are below the poverty line, and they often work two or three jobs to keep their heads above water.
