Par ts of the building were at times "tented" with plastic sheeting and high-powered lights were brought in to assist work- men. Still, there were a few days when weather conditions totally shut down Samples taken to determine original paint colors were inconclusive. The paint was too thin to provide an adequate sample, Ms. Olsen explained. But histori- cal photographs indicate the house's trim was originally brown. So, after the woodwork was scraped down and damaged wood was repaired or replaced, a coat of base paint was applied and was followed by a fresh cover of brown paint in two tones. The gradation in color highlights the architectural detail in the wood, giving it a fresh look. The stucco, too, has been trans- formed, benefiting from a cleaning that has returned it to its original, much lighter, shade of yellow. Masons were able par tially to complete the terrace in time for it to be used during Yaddo's large season— which began in mid-May. They will be back on the job in September to rebuild the steps and to do finishing work on the terrace floor and ledge. The painting crew also will return this fall so they can complete work on the terrace side of the house.
Ms. Olsen labeled the Mansion work an "upgrade," not remodeling, emphasizing the goal of keeping ever ything within the historical integrity of the building The Yaddo Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was designed by William Halsey Wood, in collaboration with Yaddo's founders, Spencer and Katrina Trask.

John Nelson Retires After 11 Years at Yaddo ohn A. Nelson retired June 1, 2002, as Vice J President of Yaddo. At a farewell party in his honor, Mr. Nelson was greeted by family, friends, co-workers, and business associates, who applauded him for his professionalism, his good humor, and his friendship. In return, Mr. Nelson thanked the Yaddo staff and board and his family—especially his wife, Lee—for their support over the years. He included in his remarks a special "thank you" to members of The Yaddo Garden Association. The YGA, the all-volunteer organization responsible for restoration and mainte- nance of the Yaddo Gardens, was founded the same year Mr. Nelson came to Yaddo and he worked closely with the group, especially in its early years.
Mr. Nelson called his time at Yaddo an "eye-opening" experience, all the more so since his background was in the business sector prior to coming to Yaddo. His years at Yaddo helped him understand the creative process and what it means to be an artist, he said.

Eventually You Settle Down arrived at Yaddo on October 7, 2001, the day the I United States began bombing in Afghanistan.
During the weeks after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, I, like ever yone I knew, had nursed a growing anxiety over imminent war; and now it was beginning. Under the circumstances, the prospect of a month at Yaddo seemed both wonder ful and, somehow, wretched. "Escaping" to Yaddo had always been a figure of speech. Now, driving out of the city, I felt like an abandoner, as if I were refusing solidarity with the people at home. Arriving at Yaddo, I felt—what? carrier of anxiety, foolish? irresponsible? I'd come to work on a novel, but to what end, in times like these? Fiction seemed perverse. And who could work anyway? My colleagues at the dinner table, Yaddo were working. What was wrong with them? Were they unable to grasp reality? "You'll settle down after a few days," one or two told me. My first night, a fellow people of the bad news.
