The Coconuts, founded by Charles Munn and Christopher Dunphy, were a group of bachelors in great demand at social functions during the Great Depression that got together and decided to throw a New Year's party to thank all the hosts who had wined and dined them during the year. The tradition has continued through the years.
Bert Morgan was a photographer whose best-known work was his photographs of Palm Beach high society events and people taken by Morgan along with his son Richard Morgan. His work was regularly published in magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Town and Country, and The Social Spectator.
