Robert Wilson Goulet (1880-1966)

Robert Wilson Goulet, of Glenmere, New York

Robert was born in the same year and looked remarkably similar to his first cousin, Robert Walton Goelet (1880-1941), who was therefore called "Bertie" to distinguish between them. Robert and Bertie both graduated from Harvard in 1902. Having inherited the bulk of his father's $80 million fortune in 1897, aside from managing their vast real estate interests Robert was also a director of the Chemical Bank and the New York Trust Company. He was married three times and kept several homes, most notably Glenmere in New York though he is also associated with Ochre Court.
