New Book Published – Swannanoa Palace

Written by Michael Hudak on . Posted in News

I had wished to know more about the history and the people who created and occupied Swannanoa Palace, since I first visited Lao Russell on Oct 15th, 1978. My wish was finally answered by the completion of Airisun Wonderli’s superlative, pictorial history of Swannanoa Palace-100 years of history of it’s past and people. In spectacular color and black and white pictures, one is taken from the ‘idea’ of Swannanoa, through it’s building manifestation by the Dooleys, it’s golf country club phase, to the arrival of Walter and Lao Russell, as they unfolded a world wide institution, teaching The Science of Man/Woman for over forty years.

Swannanoa Palace 1912-2012
