Yearbook launch March 2017

The unbroken publishing record of the DCHS Yearbook since 1914 is celebrated each year in a very special way, most recently graciously hosted by Lyell Dampeer and Valerie Belli, at their home Wales House. Designed and built by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead and White.  Commissioned by Frederick Vanderbilt, it was the home of Edward Wales, Vanderbilt’s private secretary, broker and friend.  The Colonial Revival residence is listed on the National Register.
