The Mrs. P.F. Collier Residence
The Mrs. Peter Fenelon Collier residence designed by Warren & Clark c. 1915 in Southampton. Collier was head of P.F. Collier & Son, publishers and was the editor of Collier's Weekly. The house was built to replace one that had burned in 1914. Collier died of a heart attack at the Riding Club in 1909 after he participated in a jumping contest. His son R.J. Collier would go on to run P.F. Collier & Son and died in 1918 with no children. Following R.J.'s death his will left the magazine to his friends Samuel Dunn, Harry Payne Whitney and Francis P. Garvan and was sold the following year. It is unknown if the house is extant.
