Parsons Todd was know, was twice Morristown’s mayor and served as president and vice president of the Quincy Mining Company from 1912 – 1976. He died on Sept 28, 1976 at the age of 98. Todd, a passionate collector of 18th and 19 century decorative arts, acquired objects specifically for the Museum as well as implementing item from his personal collection to furnish and interpret its period room settings.
