Hamish St. Clair-Erskine (August 23, 1909 – December 17, 1973)

James Alexander Wedderburn "Hamish" St. Clair-Erskine (23 August 1909 – 17 December 1973) was an English aristocrat aesthete. At Eton College, St Clair-Erskine was the lover of Tom Mitford. He attended Oxford University. According to James Lees-Milne's diaries: "At Oxford he had the most enchanting looks – mischievous, twinkling eyes, slanting eyebrows. He was slight of build, well dressed, gay as gay, always snobbish however, and terribly conscious of his nobility. At Oxford he was friends with Evelyn Waugh. Hamish St. Clair-Erskine was homosexual, but nevertheless, Nancy Mitford fell in love with him, and it was due to this unrequited love that she attempted suicide and wrote her first novel, Highland Fling: the male lead is based upon St. Clair-Erskine. At St. Clair-Erskine's death in 1973, Alan Payan Pryce-Jones described him as a "bright apparition who once upon a time swept past them like a kingfisher: all colour and sparkle and courage [...] [he found] small place in a world which turned away from an unambitious charmer whose only enduring gift was his charm".

Timeline & Places:

• August 23, 1909: born.

• 1920s: attended Eton College, Windsor SL4 6DW, Regno Unito

• 1920s: attended University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 2JD, Regno Unito

• December 17, 1973: died. Buried at Rosslyn Chapel, Chapel Loan, Roslin EH25 9PU, Regno Unito

Hans Henny Jahnn (December 17, 1894 – November 29, 1959)

Hans Henny Jahnn was a German playwright, novelist, and organ-builder. He met Gottlieb Friedrich "Friedel" Harms, with whom he was united in a "mystical wedding" in 1913, at a secondary school (the St. Pauli Realschule) which they both attended, and they lived together between 1914 and 1918. When Jahnn became aware of his homosexual inclinations and contrived to escape with his friend Friedel in 1913, his goal was Iceland. The refuge the two ultimately found in the spring of 1915 – when they were also fleeing conscription – was a remote area on the Sogne Fjord in Norway: Aurland. The fact that, in the face of the overwhelming support for war, Jahnn and Harms remained pacifists, not out of political conviction but because they did not want to shoot at young men, is to their lasting credit. They met Ellinor Philips in 1918: in 1926, Jahnn married Ellinor, and Harms married Sybille Philips, Ellinor's sister, in 1928. At the end of 1934 he returned to Bornholm and found a farm near Rutsker in the north-west of the island, which he bought with money from Sibylle Harms, the sister of his wife Ellinor and the widow of Friedel Harms, who had died in 1931.

Timeline & Places:

• December 17, 1894: born.

• November 29, 1959: died. Buried at Nienstedten Cemetery, Nienstedtener Marktplatz 19, 22609 Hamburg, Germania. Buried alongside: Gottlieb Friedrich Harms (1893-1931).

Nicolas Ouroussoff (December 17, 1879 – April 8, 1933)

Romain de Tirtoff was a Russian-born French artist and designer known by the pseudonym Erte, the French pronunciation of his initials, R.T. He was a diversely talented 20th century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor. He lived with Russian Prince Nicolas Ouroussoff for close to twenty years, up to the Prince's death in 1933. His work may be found in the collections of several well-known museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a sizable collection of work by Erté can be found at Museum 1999 in Tokyo. By far, his best-known image is Symphony in Black, depicting a tall, slender woman draped in black holding a thin black dog on a leash. Erté continued working throughout his life, designing revues, ballets, and operas. He had a major rejuvenation and much lauded interest in his career during the 1960s with the Art Deco revival. He branched out into the realm of limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable art.

Paul Cadmus (December 17, 1904 – December 12, 1999)

Paul Cadmus was an American artist. Cadmus's sister, Fidelma, was the wife of philanthropist and arts patron Lincoln Kirstein. He is best known for his paintings and drawings of nude male figures. His works combined elements of eroticism and social critique to produce a style often called magic realism. He painted with egg tempera. He worked in commercial illustration as well, but Jared French, another tempera artist who befriended him and became his lover for a time, convinced him to devote himself completely to fine art. For a period, they worked together with French’s wife as well, calling themselves PaJaMa (Paul + Jared + Margaret). Jon Andersson, a former cabaret singer, who became Paul Cadmus's longtime companion of 35 years, was a subject of many of his works. The two met on a pier on Nantucket in 1964, when Andersson was twenty-seven and Cadmus was fifty-nine. "I never wanted to be with anyone else", Cadmus remarked. Thirty-six years later, at sixty-three and ninety-five, when Paul died, they were still together. Jon can be seen in the David Sutherland 1986 PBS Documentary about Paul Cadmus entitled Paul Cadmus, Enfant Terrible at 80.
