Ellen Berry (1894-1992), a descendant of Knoxville founder James White, was a southern aristocrat who lived a life of love, riches, world travel, and royal connections. Yet her life was marred by tragedy, sorrow, and a misplaced trust that took her fortune and became an episode of the television series Unsolved Mysteries.  
Best known for her Knoxville News-Sentinel society column, "People and Parties," award-winning journalist Barbara Aston-Wash has interviewed some of the brightest lights of the Twentieth Century, some of whom read like a national who's who.

The lecture is presented by the East Tennessee Historical Society and is free and open to the public.
