General:
"Once the private estate of the Leslie Cheek family, of the Maxwell House Coffee forturne, Cheekwood is a stunning example of an elegant lifestyle. The three-story neo-Georgian mansion features architectural treasures from some of the great houses of Europe, selected by the Cheeks and their archictect, Bryant Fleming."
"Outstanding ornaments include towering mahogany doors, an Adam mantel of lapis lazuli, a magnificent staircase, brilliant chandeliers, and trompe l'oeil paintings to panel the walls. Today, the 55-acre Cheek Estate is a lasting tribute to one of the wealthiest eras in American history. Its stately mansion, built in 1929 with Tennessee limestone quarried on the property, is surrounded by breathtaking grounds designed by the Cheeks' landscape architect. The original gardens feature marble sculptures, water gardens, bubbling streams and grand vistas."
"Guests continue to marvel at the historical Bryant Fleming landscape. Surrounding his design are 11 principal botanical garden areas - the award winning Howe Wildflower Garden, an Herb Study Garden, the Wills Perennial Garden, the Carell Dogwood Trail and a traditional Japanese Garden. Botanic Hall features horticultural exhibits, flower shows, and the popular Trees of Christmas celebration every December. There is no better place to experience the season of Middle Tennessee."

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copies of articles, and other information about the property and Alice Austen.
General:
Also known as "Clear Comfort," this property was the home of photographer Alice Austen, who was also the founder (in 1912) of the Staten Island Garden Club. Originally a 17th-century Dutch farmhouse, it was transformed into a Victorian cottage in the 19th century by Austen's grandfather. Documented in Austen's photographs, now in the collections of the Staten Island Historical Society, the house and its four acres of grounds were restored in the 1980s. Austen's photographs were used as a guide for both preservation of mature specimens and restoration to the site's 19th century appearance. Mature trees dating back to Austen's residency include gingko, horse chestnut, Kentucky coffee tree, hackberry, and sycamore maple.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alice Austen (former owner, until 1944); John Austen (former owner, 19th century); and Bradford M. Greene (landscape architect, 1980s).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and copies of articles.
General:
The property served as a country retreat for the Governor of New Jersey. The working part of the farm was never visable to the main house, as the house was situated high on a hill and away from the rest of the property. An inventor of an early instant coffee process, George Constant Louis Washington bought the farm of 79 acres in 1927 where he kept a menagerie of animals. Washington sold the property in 1943 when he retired. Chartwell Manor School bought the property in the early 1970s and may have closed this location in the early 1980s. As of 2006, the property was in disrepair.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Franklin Murphy (former owner, 1900?-1920); George Constant Louis Washington (former owner, 1927); Chartwell Manor School (former owner, 1970s-1980s?); and Olmsted Brothers (landscape architect)

Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 26 digital images. The folder includes worksheets, site plans, historical images, biographical and other information.
General:
When this property was purchased in 1948 the first plantings included espaliered fruit trees and an all-white perennial border that featured white wisteria standards. The shingle-style house on nearly one acre was passed down in the family to the current owner, but other than two remaining productive fruit trees the garden has been restyled. Four more borders were planted, straight lines were eliminated in favor of curving edges, and a fieldstone faced swimming pool was built. Shrubs, trees and flowers have been planted that supply natural materials for floral designs during spring, summer and fall. Early summer is the peak season with many peonies, flag irises, clematis, and David Austin roses grown on arches and tuteurs. In fall dahlias, hydrangeas and zinnias are featured. White birch trees, Delaware white azaleas, ferns, hostas and annuals in containers overflow onto the brick patio that can be seen from the kitchen window. Other trees and shrubs include several dogwood varieties, a Kentucky coffee tree, rhododendron, false cypress, stewartia, and elderberry. Perennials for cutting include artemesia, asters, foxgloves, evening primrose, and catmint.
The property boasts of a series of garden rooms consisting the East Garden, West Garden, D Garden, Front Garden, Circle Garden, and the Rose Garden. Hedges of yew, lilac, viburnum, and hibiscus were planted to create "walls" for the rooms. Various plantings are changed to accentuate each season with different color schemes.
Persons associated with the garden include Marius and Helen Johnston (former owners, 1948-1971); Eileen Forsyth (gardener, 2000- ).

Place:
Gretchen W. and James L. Johnson Jupiter Island Estate (Hobe Sound, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Martin -- Hobe Sound
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, personal narratives, and photocopies of landscape architect's plans.
General:
The Jupiter Island Estate comprises 14.68 acres, incorporating four property lots and four houses integrated by a designed landscape made to look as though it occurred naturally. This property was put together in 2002 and the gardens have evolved, with trees sometimes brought down by storms and once by an explosion on the property. Although each building has distinct features such as trellised vines for shade on the studio building and a small vegetable and herb garden outside the guest cottage, the gardens are unified by fountains or other water features and the use of indigenous plants and coquina rockwork, with shades of red for most of the flowering plants. The predominate shape for planned garden areas suggests islands, with opened vistas the only obvious straight lines. The decomposing shapes of dead trees are prized and left in place to provide habitat for wildlife. Other casts off plant materials such as husks from palm trees are laid down on paths. The busy Intracoastal Waterway runs along one side of the property so a retaining wall was built for privacy and as protection against storms. Since the coastline of this property is rocky a private beach or sand pit was installed and there is an swimming pool with a modern beach house.
The plant selection for the tropical location includes bromeliads and bougainvillea in shades of red, blue agave, pink caladiums, jasmine, ficus and a stand of live oaks near the main residence. The plantings outside the yellow house include yellow roses, canna lilies and yellow orchids in a banyan tree with touches of periwinkle blue in the plantings and blue shutters on the building. Other plants that recur throughout the property include native cactus, wild coffee plant, peanut grass, sea grape and native berries, iron wood trees and stumps and many palm varieties. There are mature banyan trees, pigeon plum, ficus and a gnarly pigeon palm. Poinsettias that were holiday gifts are planted in the ground each year. There is a border of citrus trees for fruit, and dramatic large leaf philodendron, palms and stands of bamboo for privacy around another residence building. Confederate and night blooming jasmine, gardenia and ginger add fragrance outside windows and doors.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Jungles, FASLA (landscape architect, beginning in 2002); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects).

Chromolithographs
Date:
1880-1940
Summary:
This collection consists of 11 chromolithograph trading and advertising cards dating to the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Images depict Native individuals and groups throughout North America, but tend to focus specifically on Northeast, Great Lakes, and Plains communities.
Scope and Contents:
The German Advertising Trade Cards collection consists of 11 chromolithograph trading and advertising cards dating to the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. These 11 cards were written in German, distributed by different manufacturers throughout Germany and Europe, and were used to advertise a number of products including pasta, meat extract, condensed milk, coffee, chocolate, cigarettes, and metal polish, among others. One of the better known companies included in this collection is the Liebig Company of Germany. In addition to advertising German manufactures, these cards feature romanticized images of Native Americans on the front of each card, and include sometimes fanciful or incorrect textual descriptions about Native life on the reverse. Images depict Native individuals and groups throughout North America, but tend to focus specifically on Northeast, Great Lakes, and Plains communities.
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged into folders.
Biographical / Historical:

Not confined to Germany, many companies throughout Europe and the Americas utilized these illustrated cards to increase awareness of their products to a mass-market public.
Provenance:
This collection was donated by Robert Eurich in 2018.
