William B. Ruger Jr. is the son of the late William B. Ruger Sr., owner and creator of the Ruger & Company, which created the Ruger Standard, the most popular .22 caliber target pistol ever made in the United States.

Ruger Jr. owns this estate, originally built for Mr. and Mrs. Walter G. Ladd by architect Guy Lowell.
