Notable Residents at The Mansfield

From captains of industry to artistic mavens, The Mansfield has hosted and continues to host guests of great distinction and honor. We reflect on the storied past of previous residents and guests, and celebrate the history makers of today who walk through our history-laden halls.

Max Von Gerlach (the original Jay Gatsby)
The Mansfield once housed socialite Max von Gerlach, a bootlegger and former World War I officer, who according to Some Sort of Epic Grandeur, Matthew J Bruccoli's biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald, was the inspiration for the character of Jay Gatsby. According to documents related to a private investigation, Gerlach knew Fitzgerald in the 1920s and allegedly kept him "topped off with booze." Gerlach was a long-time resident of The Mansfield and lived in-residence until his death in October 1958.

John Butler Yeats
An Irish artist and father of the celebrated poet, William Butler Yeats, John Butler Yeats resided at The Mansfield to experience a thriving New York following his immigration from Ireland in the early 1900s.  Yeats, a native of Ireland, is best known for his 1914 portrait of John O’Leary which hangs in the Yeats Museum within the National Gallery of Ireland.
