It's Not Easy Being a Condé Nast

20061128cnp.gif

What you might sometimes forget amid all the talk about anorexic assistants and Graydon Carter and Frank Gehry cafeterias and Anna Wintour is that once upon a time, long, long ago, there was a real, live man named Condé Nast. Condé was born in Paris, and he started the magazine company that bears his name. He also, as it turns out, has descendents (and they're not the Newhouses), as an editor we know discovered when browsing Wikipedia today:

Jamie Isaac Conde Nast (born August 11, 1986, in Los Angeles CA) son of Rickard Joe Conde, CEO and chairman of Conde Systems, a prominent graphic designing company, is also an heir to part of the Conde Nast Publications, Inc. (CNP) fortune. He currently lives in Bel Air (Beverly Hills) CA, and goes by the name of Jamie Isaac Conde.



Jamie appeared on the cover of LA Youth, a newspaper by and about Los Angeles teens, posing for an article titled, Born Rich. He also talked about his not-so-perfect life in Gunstories, a book about teens and their experience with gun violence, written by Beth Atkin....



He is the great great grandson of Conde Montrose Nast, publisher of such magazines as Vogue (1909-1959), House & Garden (1909-1959), and other titles.

Is it actually for real? The guy who found it suspects yes. Plus, would Wikipedia lie to us?
