One of the most visited profiles on Muckety in recent weeks has been that of socialite Patricia Altschul.
The reason for the interest is her occasional, haughty presence on “Southern Charm,” Bravo’s reality TV show about the upper crust in Charleston, SC.
Altschul, the mother of cast member Whitney Sudler-Smith, established her social standing in New York before paying $4.8 million for a Charleston mansion in 2008.
The interactive Muckety map above shows her patrician creds. (Roll your mouse over connecting lines to see relationships.)
She is the widow of banker and philanthropist Arthur Altschul, who died in 2002 at age 81. The two had married in 1996. It was the fourth marriage for Arthur Altschul, who was a partner at Goldman, Sachs.
His father was also a banker. His mother, Helen Altschul, was a niece of Herbert Lehman, a U.S. senator and governor of New York.
Herbert Lehman’s father, Mayer Lehman, was a co-founder of Lehman Brothers.
