During his career, he worked as a cattle rancher in New Mexico and was associated with the investment firm of Lazard Freres & Company in New York. He then moved to Palm Beach, Florida, where he opened a gallery in Wellington and concentrated on polo, which he played with great enthusiasm. His polo art collection was known worldwide. One of his major triumphs was assembling an almost complete collection of artist Joseph W. Golinkins’ polo paintings, lithographs and drawings. His collection also included renderings of Palm Beach in the mid-1930s.
