Notes:
Perry H. Wheeler did the landscape design work for Mrs. Glen W. Cole's home on Spencer Hill in Corning, New York, during the late 1950s. Mrs. Cole's husband had been president of the Corning Glass Works from 1941 to 1946. Wheeler's photographs show the home's stone terrace in spring, with its tulip bed accents, flowering trees, and striking views of the surrounding hills. Outdoor furnishings with umbrellas and an awning for shade completed this ideal setting for entertaining. Plans in the series include Wheeler's graphite drawings, while the blueprints are of architect Francis W. Roudebush's designs for the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, ca. 1956-1958); Francis W. Roudebush (architect, ca. 1955-1956); and Mrs. Glen W. Cole (former owner, ca. 1955-1960).
