Romeo Guest is known as “Father of the Research Triangle” and played a major role in the development of what is known today as Research Triangle Park.”Greensboro News 1977” Lucia Guest Bennhoff; her daughters Jenn and Kris; and two close friends from Greensboro toured Romeo Guest Associates’ home office, downtown Durham, the Duke University campus, Duke Chapel, the Research Triangle Park, and visited the Research Triangle Foundation.
