1913-1913
Notes:
Located in Rumford, Rhode Island, the Agawam Hunt was established in 1897 as a private social club featuring golf, tennis, squash, and other activities for its members. The nine snapshot images in the album show the club facilities about 1913. A 1919 "Constitution and List of Members," available on-line, lists Thomas W. Sears as a non-resident member (by that time he was living and working in the Philadelphia area), while his friend and colleague Sibley C. Smith and his wife are listed as resident members. It is possible that Sears and/or Smith played a role in landscaping the club's grounds, as seen in the photographs.
Persons associated with the garden include Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect and photographer, 1913) and Sibley C. Smith (landscape architect, 1913).
