Edmund Carpenter, 88

    A gathering of friends to remember Edmund Snow Carpenter, who died on Friday at 88, is planned, and will be held at a date and place to be announced, likely in New York City later this summer. Mr. Carpenter, who was known to friends as Ted, was an anthropologist, art historian, and media theorist, among his many callings. He and his wife, Adelaide de Menil, donated the buildings from their property on Further Lane, East Hampton, to become the new East Hampton Town Hall. An obituary will appear in a future issue.
