Summary:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 3,100 photographic images of private and public gardens throughout the United States, as well as some from foreign countries, dating from 1899 to 1963. Many of these images, generated for Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), were used to illustrate trade catalogs published by the firm as well as journal and newspaper articles. The collection also contains color records that were used as reference aids during the printing process, plant patents, and various publications of the McFarland Company.
Scope and Contents note:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 2,700 black and white mounted photographs, 448 glass lantern slides, and 41 glass plate negatives of gardens throughout the United States dating from 1899 to 1963. A small number of images show gardens in Austria, Canada, England, Mexico, Scotland and Wales. Many of the images, which were generated and used by the J. Horace McFarland Company to illustrate trade catalogs and journal and newspaper articles, indicate the publication(s) in which they appeared. A series of portraits of rosarians, many of them featured in Modern Roses 6, rounds out the image collection. The McFarland Collection also includes color records, plants patents, and miscellaneous publications. Color records are plant 'portraits' that were painted by McFarland Company staff artists in watercolor. They were referenced by the printing department in order to render illustrations of plants in colors as close to the originals as possible. The plant patents are patents for plants issued by the United States Patent Office. They include the plant name, source, filing and patent dates, patent number, and growth characteristics. Most are accompanied by a colored image of the plant identified in the patent. The miscellaneous publications are various pamphlets and booklets published by the J. Horace McFarland Company.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 5 series:

1) Garden images (including mounted photographs, glass plate negatives, and glass lantern slides)

2) Portraits of Rosarians

3) Color Records

4) Plant Patents

5) Miscellaneous Publications
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. J. Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an influential civic leader, author, publisher, horticulturist, and authority on roses. His printing company, Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It published many of the seed and nursery trade catalogs in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the first to apply color processes to commercial print applications. J. Horace McFarland Company staffers photographed thousands of different gardens and plant specimens throughout the United States. These images were used to illustrate numerous nursery and seed catalogs, journals and books. Among its many services, the firm sold various themed lectures illustrated by sets of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

McFarland wrote over 200 articles in popular journals as well as a dozen books on roses and gardening. He served as the first president of the American Civic Association from 1904-1924 and led several local and national campaigns to protect communities and scenic areas from urban blight and overdevelopment including the city of Harrisburg and Niagara Falls. McFarland, who served as the president of the American Rose Society (1930-1932) and helped establish a standardized rose identification and registration method, used the gardens on his own 2.5 acre property in Harrisburg, "Breeze Hill," to test hundreds of varieties of roses and plant cultivars. "Breeze Hill" was used as the backdrop for many photographs taken by McFarland's firm.

Introduction:
The small country of Wales sets an example of sustainable culture that links history and tradition to the latest alternative technologies, thereby providing a focus for the 2009 Festival program, Wales Smithsonian Cymru. A spectrum of sustainability stretches throughout the history of Wales and into the future - continuing, preserving, and reviving older environmental practices as well as creating new ones. This continuum connects people within communities, regions, and nations, starting at the local level and radiating out around the globe.

While doing research for the 2009 Festival program, fieldworkers sought four types of sustainability relating to traditional culture in Wales: 1) keeping the best of traditional practices; 2) recycling in the broadest sense; 3) thinking globally, acting locally; and 4) planning for a sustainable future. They documented music and dance; storytelling; occupational skills such as farming and mining; the building arts; industrial heritage; outdoor pursuits; maritime arts; textile, ceramics, and wood crafts; and cooking, gardening, and traditional medicine. The four core sustainability concepts helped the fieldworkers make connections among genres, regions, and the skills and talents of potential participants, informing the program throughout its development.

The results of this collaboration were available for Festival visitors to enjoy on the National Mall.In addition to a rich program of music, dance, and oral traditions, visitors could interact with Welsh tradition-bearers to explore and experience topics such as Welsh genealogy; wood, stone, metal, clay, wool, and basketry crafts; plants and traditional medicine; maritime, sports, and ecotourism; renewable energy and sustainable building workshops (highlighting three sustainable structures); and more.

Betty J. Belanus was Curator; Dorey Butter was Program Coordinator; Beverly Simons was Foodways Coordinator; and Kim Stryker was Family Learning Coordinator. A Curatorial Committee in Wales included: Teri Brewer and Gareth Evans; Peter Finch and colleagues; Eluned Haf; Angharad Pearce Jones, Rocet Arwel Jones, and Rhydian Griffiths; Tecwyn Vaughan Jones; Lesley-Anne Kerr; Dai Lloyd and Andy Williams; Ceri Rhys Matthews; Andy Middleton; Dafydd Roberts; Beth Thomas; Dan Thomas; Siân Thomas; and Moira Vincentelli. The program's Steering Committee comprised: Gary Davies, Ifona Deeley, Nick Capaldi, Keven Higgins, Paul Allen, Linda Tomos, Wynfford James, Paul Islwyn Thomas, Mike Hnyda, Andrew Green, Michael Houlihan, Eirlys Thomas, and Virginia West.

The program was produced in partnership with the Welsh Assembly Government. Donors included Alzeim Ltd., BioPharm, Neal's Yard Remedies, Summit (Wales) Ltd., and Caligo Inks. Additional contributions were provided by the St. David's Welsh-American Society of Washington, D.C., St. David's Society of Racine & Vicinity, the Welsh Society of Philadelphia, the St. David Welsh Society of St. Petersburg and the Suncoast, and Roger W.
