Winthrop Brooks, of Brooks Brothers, purchased the Valley Ranch on the South Fork of the Shoshone River in 1915 in partnership with his Princeton classmate I H (Larry) Larom of New York. Larom and his wife, Irma, were pioneers in various ways. They started a successful college preparatory school at the ranch, known as “Valley Ranch School for Boys,” operational from 1922 to 1934. Larom became sole owner of the Valley Ranch in 1926. Joan Crawford and Tallulah Bankhead were two of its better-known guests. Larom sold the property in 1969, four years before his death. It is now in private hands.
