Place:
South Mulberry Plantation (Moncks Corner, South Carolina)
United States of America -- South Carolina -- Berkeley County -- Moncks Corner
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on nine hundred and one acres, South Mulberry Plantation was established in 1809 and created out of the larger Mulberry Plantation when Philip S. Broughton inherited the tract from his father. Broughton's son-in-law and botanist Dr.Sanford W. Barker, constructed the house on South Mulberry Plantation around 1835 and probably laid out the formal garden west of the house which remains to this day. The garden has borders of boxwood and pittosporum growing along the original pierced brick wall that edges the entire garden area. A path leading through the center of the garden is flanked by semicircular areas of flowering plants that mimic those found in the original garden. A reflecting pool is at one end accompanied by a bench and potted palms. A sweet potato vine climbs an arbor outside the garden wall.
The house retains much of its original interior fabric. Side additions were added before the Civil War and a rear wing was added at the turn of the century by a duck hunting club. Other buildings on the property include: a guest house, ice house, chicken coop, barns and an old slave cabin turned art studio. A pecan grove, pastures, woodlands, fields, pond and lagoon are also part of the plantation landscape. Fallen into disrepair by the 1980's, the property was once more reunited with its parent Mulberry and has been carefully restored and furnished by the current owners.
Persons associated with the property include: Philip S. Broughton (former owner, 1809-1835), Dr. Sanford W. Barker (former owner, 1835-1915), Clarence Chapman (former owner, 1915-1987).

Place:

Wild Moor (Newport, Rhode Island)
Scope and Contents:
20 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
Established in 1887, Wild Moor (also known as Berry Hill) is a woodland and natural landscape planted with native species on 22 acres. It has been in the same family for over 100 years and is protected by a land trust by new owners. Wild Moor sits on the second highest point on Aquidneck Island, overlooking Narragansett Bay, the Newport Country Club, and before the extensive planting of trees, the town of Newport and its harbor.

The garden was cultivated by the first owners, Walter and Mary Howe. Water penned a book of essays titled, 'The Garden.' After Walter's death Mary married Arnold Hague, a geologist and amateur botanist. She attended botany courses at Columbia University and the couple began to plant specimen trees, shrubs, fern landscapes, a rock garden, swaths of crocus, trout lilies and narcissus. The added acreage and constructed a tennis court, greenhouses, stone garden sheds and a rose house.

Mary Howe Hague was the first president of the Newport Garden Club. Club members were invited to the property's spring flowering in 1914 and it was open to visits by members throughout the family's ownership of the estate.

Donald MacKay Fraser, a coachman promoted to gardener, oversaw Berry Hill from 1932 to 1976. A Scottish immigrant, he was not trained in horticulture, but overtime became a knowledgeable gardener who sought advice from other gardeners including other Scots working on Newport's grand estates. MacKay's era saw the gradual clearing of the land and construction of structures including a stonewall-enclosed "Little Garden," "Loch Fraser," a catchment pond, the "Shanty," a wooden shed perched atop fitted with a small fireplace and baby grand piano for Mary Carlisle Howe, an accomplished composer and one of the founders of the National Symphony Orchestra.

The property was sold in 2020 and renamed Wild Moor, the windswept garden, with mossy dells, rock-strewn lawns and panoramic vistas.

Persons associated with the property include: Walter and Mary Ann Bruce Howe (former owner, 1887); Walter Bruce Howe (former owner, 1923); Mary C. Howe (former owner, 1954); Bruce Howe (former owner, 1959); Berry Hill Nominee Trust (former owner, 1992); Samuel Parsons (unknown role, 1887); Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect of subdivision/sited the house); McKim, Mead, and White? (architect); Michael Carney (head gardener, 1889-1908); William Richardson (head gardener, 1909-1919); Charles Clark (head gardener, 1920-1930); Frederick S. Franco (head gardener, 1931-1932); Donald Fraser (coachman and gardener, superintendent/horticulture, 1933-1975); John Salvador (head gardener, 1976-1992); Keith Hayward (head gardener, 1993-present); Howe family (garden designers).

Records related to the overall subdivision in which this property is located may be found at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, Olmsted Job Number 00681, King-Glover Lands.

Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Audiotapes
Date:
1990-2000
Introduction:
The Smithsonian Institution Archives (SIA) began its Oral History Program in 1973. The purpose of the program is to supplement the written documentation of the Archives' record and manuscript collections with an Oral History Collection, focusing on the history of the Institution, research by its scholars, and contributions of its staff. Program staff conduct interviews with current and retired Smithsonian staff and others who have made significant contributions to the Institution. There are also reminiscences and interviews recorded by researchers or students on topics related to the history of the Smithsonian or the holdings of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.
Descriptive Entry:
The G. Evelyn Hutchinson Interviews include interviews with Myrdene Anderson, Yemaiel Aris, Anna Aschenbach, Anna Bidder, E. J. Browne, Robert Cook, Dian Deevey, Rosemary Dodd, Peter Dodd, M. J. Dunbar, W. T. Edmondson, Yvette H. Edmondson, David George Furth, Eville Gorham, Paul Hutchinson, Dorothea Hutchinson, A. Hutchinson, G. Evelyn Hutchinson, Hannah Hutchinson, Sophie Hutchinson, Penelope Jenkin, Alison Jolly, Susan Soltau Kilham, Alan J. Kohn, Stanley Leavy, Mary Leavy, Estella B. Leopold, Sibyl Marcuse, Clement L. Markert, Ernst Mayr, Ian McLaren, Eric Mills, Jane M. Oppenheimer, Ruth Patrick, Gilbert Poulson, Mary Poulson, Paul Richard, Anne Richard, S. Dillon Ripley, Howard Sanders, Lawrence B. Slobodkin, Sarah Twombly, Peter J. Wangersky, Maxine Watson, and Margaret Wright.

The interviews were recorded by Dr. Nancy G. Slack, professor biology at Russell Sage College and a botanist and historian of science. The interviews focus on reminiscences of G. Evelyn Hutchinson and information about their careers in biology and ecology.

The G. Evelyn Hutchinson Interviews consist of 38 interview sessions, totaling approximately 56 hours of recordings on audiotape cassettes or mini-cassettes. Note that recording times are approximate. The interviews have not been transcribed.
Historical Note:
As background research for a biography of G. Evelyn Hutchinson, pioneer of American ecology and mentor of S. Dillon Ripley, eighth Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, Nancy G. Slack conducted oral history interviews with Hutchinson, family members and colleagues during the 1990s. Hutchinson was on several Smithsonian boards and commissions and was a mentor to several Smithsonian researchers. The interviews were recorded on audio cassette and mini-cassette tapes, and deposited in the Smithsonian Institution Archives Oral History Collection. A few of the tapes have been remastered in digital audio for preservation purposes.
