Beatrice was the daughter of William Greenough (1874-1949) and Charlotte Warren (1885-1954) who collected most of the artwork herself. Charlotte was assisted by her father, Whitney Warren, who had donated a scrapbook of his architectural drawings to the Redwood Library.

Beatrice Greenough of Prescott Farm, a Portsmouth, RI resident for many years, died 24 April,1984. She left an uncle, Whitney Warren of San Francisco and two cousins, Michael Lloyd Reeves of Newport and Reginald Reeves of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
