Sean Eldridge—Investor, Democratic Donor, and Husband of Facebook Cofounder Chris Hughes—Is Running for Congress
Mother Jones - over 3 years
When I first met Sean Eldridge last summer, at a Ritz-Carlton lobby bar that doubled as a see-and-be-seen salon for Democratic bigwigs attending the party's national convention in Charlotte, he seemed to fit in just fine. Eldridge, who runs a small investment fund in New York State's Hudson River Valley, met with me to discuss his latest effort, a political group called Protect Our Democracy that planned to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to support replacing the state's lax campaign finance system with publicly funded elections. It was clear, though, that Eldridge had far loftier political aspirations than campaign finance activist. On Monday, Eldridge finally unveiled his candidacy for New York’s 19th Congressional district. I say "finally" because it's been an open secret for months now that Eldridge, who is married to Facebook cofounder and New Republic owner Chris Hughes, wanted to run for Congress. In a July 10 story titled "Young, Rich, and Relocating Yet Again in Hu ...

Huge field of hopefuls revealed for Blue Square Stewards’ Cup
Bognor Regis Observer - over 4 years
A total of 130 entries have been received for £100,000 Blue Square Bet Stewards’ Cup, run over six furlongs on the fifth and final day of Glorious Goodwood, Saturday, August 4. Irish handler David Marnane has entered Jamesie (14/1 co second favourite with Blue Square Bet), who was runner-up in the fiercely competitive seven-furlong Buckingham Palace Handicap at Royal Ascot on June 22. Marnane, based at Bansha in Co Tipperary, said: “We might run Jamesie in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket next week, but the Blue Square Bet Stewards’ Cup is certainly on his agenda “I have been delighted with him since Ascot. He has come out of the race well and appears to be at the top of his game. “He is a funny horse as he needs to be played late and, although the winner won well at Royal Ascot, Jamesie beat the group on his side easy enough and he doesn’t do a whole lot when he hits the front. I would have liked to see him race on the other side, but we were delighted with the run. “He is a versatil ...

    More Details Hide Details
  • THIRTIES
  • 1968
    Age 33
    In 1968, Donaldson inherited another fortune and married Claire Gordon.
    More Details Hide Details The couple epitomised 1960s Swinging London. He later remembered that "sex, whether in company or not, has been the only department in life in which I have demanded from anyone taking part the very highest standards of seriousness." He was survived by his third wife, Cherry Hatrick.
    In 1968, Donaldson received a substantial inheritance, and in 1971 he left Britain for Ibiza, where he imprudently spent his last £2,000 on a glass-bottomed boat.
    More Details Hide Details Before long he was scavenging for food on the beach. Returning to London, he found refuge with a former girlfriend who was running a brothel on the Fulham Road. His experiences there formed the basis of his first novel, Both the Ladies and the Gentlemen (1975). However, it was to be Donaldson's fictional letter-writer Henry Root who made him a final fortune. Root's satirical lampooning of the rich, famous, and influential was published in the books: Donaldson lived at 139 Elm Park Mansions on Park Walk, Chelsea, London SW10, from which address all the Root letters were sent. Nearby, The Henry Root restaurant has been established in his memory. Donaldson's biographical survey of roguish Britons through the ages, Brewer's Rogues, Villains and Eccentrics (2002), has been described as "a breathtaking triumph of misdirected scholarship". The phenomenal success of the Henry Root books, especially the first, enabled Donaldson to resume his earlier chaotic lifestyle, and in the mid-1980s he began using crack cocaine. He continued its use for more than a decade, but insisted he was not addicted.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1957
    Age 22
    Donaldson married Sonia Avory in 1957 and she bore him his only child, Charlie.
    More Details Hide Details However, he left her for Jacki Ellis, then the wife of Jeffrey Bernard, but in due course she left him. A sequence of affairs followed, including liaisons with Sarah Miles and Carly Simon. He left Miles for Simon, whom he described as "the answer to any sane man's prayers; funny, quick, erotic, extravagantly talented", but this did not prevent him from jilting her while they were engaged and returning to Miles.
