Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Marsh Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet, site plan, narrative description, and copy of aerial photograph.
General:
The original woody site features areas of vinca and grass sloping down into a slight dale, then rises to the entrance of a porch filled with potted plants. The original rose garden contained tea roses, which later became a white and white garden, and then changed to the present rose garden. The current rose garden contains boxwood hedges in the shape of an "X" and standard roses. The landscape has continued to evolve since the 1980s. Trees were added to the front and brick work was added to define the curved surfaces. The owners created another entrance to the backyard through the greenhouse and court area. In the rear, a fence was removed and a much larger area became available to cultivate. An upper level patio with a water fountain was created--increasing the area of planting substantially. Pots or container gardening was adopted and elaborated over many years with variety and seasonal blooming. The most recent addition in permanent plantings is a camellia garden at the west end of the swimming pool area. Flowering fruit trees, spirea, cherry laurel, Japanese maple, tulip magnolias and magnolias are integrated into the naturalistic setting.
People associated with this property include: Asher B. Kahn (former owner, 1938-1949); John O'Boyle (former owner, 1949-1972); Elizabeth Ferguson (former owner, 1972-1980); Howard Meyer (architect, 1937); Joe Lambert (landscape architect, ca. 1940-1950); Herman Bliss (landscape architect, 1980); and Charlene Marsh (rose garden designer, 1995).

Place:
Claremont Manor (Claremont, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Surry County -- Claremont
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles about the property.
General:
The land on which Claremont Manor was built came into the possession of the Allen family in 1681. The property was passed down to the Allen family descendents for 205 years, and became prosperous with 12,000 acres for growing tobacco, and hundreds of slaves to work the fields, until the Civil War. Portions of the property were sold by several owners following the Civil War, becoming the town of Claremont, Virginia or smaller farms.
The Georgian style brick manor, which includes several outbuildings, was built in ca.1740, was expanded and altered over time. The manor is sited at the top of a terraced lawn about 100 feet above the James River at its confluence with Upper Chippokes Creek. Old trees, including magnolias, frame the garden, which is itself bordered in boxwood. The extensive grounds were divided into garden area by grass walkways, later paved or bricked, and a variety of brick walls. The ornamental plantings were organized in garden rooms, with boxwood borders, and fruit arbors. There are two lanes of linden trees leading to the James River, one to a wooded dell that fronts the boat landing.
The garden was restored in the 1930s under the ownership of General William H. and Ann Cocke and again in the 1950s during James Walter Carter's ownership. Major changes during the 1930s included the addition of mature trees and shrubs and the public road was moved away from the house. A swimming pool and tennis court, designed by William Lawrence Bottomley, was added during the ownership of Millicent Rogers, 1940-1950.
During the Carter ownership (1950-1964), landscape architect Alden Hopkins of Williamsburg redesigned the gardens, changing and paving walkways and adding mature trees. The Ardibel Carpet at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London was the source of the design of the kitchen garden, using herbs and vegetables. Other trees planted in the 1950s included crepe myrtles and starlight magnolias. The home was occupied by the Felician Sisters and used as a convent during the mid-1960s and 1970s. In 1982, Lewis and Ann Kirby bought and added back 68 acres that were once part of the original property.
Persons associated with the property include Arthur Allen II (former owner 1681-1710); John Allen (former owner, 1710-1741); William Allen (former owner, 1741-1793); William Allen II (former owner, 1793 - 1831); William Orgain Allen (former owner 1831-1875); William Allen IV (former owner 1875-1886); J.

Winter (former owner, 1900-1909); Harry C. Burdick (former owner, 1909-1919); Eleanor C. Johnston (former owner, 1919-1928); General William H. and Ann O. Cocke (former owner, 1928-1940); Millicent Rogers (former owner, 1940-1950); James Walter Carter (former owner, 1950-1964); Felician Sisters Convent (former owner, 1964-1976); Lewis and Ann Kirby (current owner, 1976- ); Alden Hopkins (landscape architect, 1950s-1960s) and Donald H.

Duck Creek (Old Lyme, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- New London County -- Old Lyme
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, a plant list, and additional information about the garden and designer Chester W. Martin.
General:
This garden site was established in 1940 on four acres of rugged granite outcroppings and meadow bordering a salt meadow in southeastern Connecticut. The original owner, Norwegian-born Arvid O. Knudsen, was an antiquarian, collector, world traveller, and lifelong student of architecture. He salvaged the Georgian post office in New London, CT, and brought it all--old bricks, urns, and cupola--20 miles west to his plot of land in Old Lyme. He rebuilt it into a house of his own design, giving it the facade of a 1750 Connecticut Valley Chippendale doorway. In the back of the property he carved into the land a formal green and white grass garden, complete with in-ground swimming pool, boxed in with arborvitae. A sunshading gazebo was the focal point of the base of the garden at the edge of the pool. A decade later, Mr. Knudsen's friend, J. A. Lloyd Hyde, became owner of the country estate. He maintained the gardens and grounds in their original design except for the gazebo, which he rebuilt into a pillared gazebo in memory of his friend.
In 1981 Mr. Hyde's nephew, J. Hindon Hyde, assumed ownership of the property and a few years later sold it to the current owners. With great respect to Mr. Knudsen's original design, the present owners redesigned the formal lawn garden in a number of ways. The walkways were removed and turf installed and forsythia planted in place of the arborvitae border. A garden of ornamental grasses, perennials, and annuals graces the entry of the pillared gazebo in place of the in-ground swimming pool. A parade of fruit trees parallel each other down the center of the lawn garden to where the original wide, baroque fountain stands surrounded by another new perennial garden. Many of the original classic white marble urns and garden statues decorate the garden and 40-year-old espaliered pear trees flourish along the terrace of the back wall of the peach-brick house.
Persons associated with the garden include: Arvid O. Knudsen (former owner, 1940-1950); J. A. Lloyd Hyde (former owner, 1950-1981); J. Hindon Hyde (former owner, 1981-1984); Chester W. Martin (landscape designer, 1940-1950s); and Joe Barstis (nurseryman and gardener, 1940-1950s).

Biographical / Historical:
Founded 1942 in Racine, Wis., by Virgil Whyte, his "all-girl" band was composed of young Racine women. Whyte was instructor, manager, and the initial leader on drums; later his sister Alice took over as drummer. After initial success in Racine and elsewhere in Wisconsin, the band began to accept engagements in other parts of the country, eventually touring the U.S. The band's success drew other acts and performers, including Jill Fontaine and the Wilford Mae Trio, Sam Hearn (known as "Schlepperman"), the Woodson Sisters, and Paul La Verre and Bro. They did U.S.O. tours, entertaining servicemen.

The principal donor, a free-lance researcher and writer, is the daughter of Virgil Whyte.
