Posted in The Trials of Doris

ToD, Chapter 2, Part 3

After a weekend of excitement in the grassroots, Doris Duke supporters have flooded the Internet. They seek reform in every possible dimension after seeing the destruction that the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation is so interested in providing. Not only to protect the house, these citizens and dedicated supporters have now chosen to turn and ask questions about the people in charge and question the authority that a charitable foundation bred by a conservationist has to destroy the home of their original benefactor.Among the bustle rises the new lawsuit in appellate court. The parties will again produce their claims but this time… both plaintiff and defendant will present in front of three judges in a panel from the state of New Jersey. This is monumental and has made strides in the grassroots movement. It eliminates, or at least sharply reduces, any influence of small-town politics on the determination of how this case will resolve. It is extremely uplifting to the writers at Retro Revival to hear the news that superior courts have already ruled to protect the house.

Thank you especially to all those who are reading carefully- We thoroughly appreciate the resonating influence of asking the hard questions in this increasingly-intricate case to save the Estate!

Here’s what you can do to help get the right questions answered! Send in a complaint form to the New York State Chaities Bureau. Since the Doris Duke Charitable Foudation is hosted in New York City, the state receives their complaints even though the estate in question is in New Jersey. The form is available through our page. All you have to do is add some information to your form and mail it into the address on the top. Consider this the letter writing campaign you’ve all been waiting for! Hopefully this will trigger an investigation to clear up any potential problems within the whole charitable trust for the future. Its due time to honor the estate, the house, and the beautiful baroness benefactor that made all this possible. Stay curious and send in those forms! For any questions regarding how to fill our this form, email us at



For over 8 amazing years, it has been an experience, a pleasure, and a journey to be a revivalist. I love all things retro and antique. Writing has been a passion of mine since middle school and throughout my professional career. For all those who are inspired to be vintage, challenge the norms in the name of tradition! We write for a better, more inspired tomorrow <3
