Nancy Rhodes Archer was schooled in Kentucky and Memphis Tennessee. After graduate work was done at Syracuse University, she worked in art colleges and galleries in the mid-west. Her family was friendly with that of Tennessee Williams, and you will find a bent twig rocking chair that Tennessee Williams grew up with in a bedroom at the Coast House.
R.W. Hogeland, a refugee from Philadelphia and unsuccessful student of theology at Princeton, taught American History at the University of Wisconsin. His most notable feat remains jumping center against Wilt Chamberlain while in high school. He now writes short stories, two of which are available at the Coast House library.
