Evander Berry Wall (1860 – 1940) was a New York socialite & later an American expatriate in France during the Belle Époque & beyond. He was famous for his extravagantly refined look & was crowned "King of the Dudes" in the 1880s. At the age of 16, he owned his first race horse. He inherited $2 million before the age of 22. Wall became a leader of the American Café society, a group of rich socialites. When he died, he left only $12,608, having "squandered nearly every cent on pleasure."
