Huguette Clark's Doll Collection

The late heiress Huguette Clark was known for her reclusive nature, rarely leaving her apartment and spending the last two decades of her life voluntarily living in a hospital.

But a new book reveals there was one hobby that drew Clark out of her shell: a lifelong infatuation with expensive dolls. In their new book “Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune,” authors Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr. report that Clark amassed a doll collection worth an estimated $2 million.

  1. I didn't have much quiet spare time before but now that all my children are in school,it will be much easier for me to be able to read a book. I will definitely be getting this book. It looks very interesting. Thank you so much for sharing this.
