Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Tobacco Trade and Industry forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This subject category, "Tobacco Trade and Industry," consists of materials related to the tobacco trade and industry. This subject category provides an extensive record of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century tobacco industry with materials for consumers, traders, and distributors. It forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Collection Division I: Business Ephemera and Division II: Oversize Materials.

Series 1, Tobacco and Tobacco Related Product Ephemera, 1781-1965, undated, is the largest portion of the tobacco related materials. This series is arranged alphabetically by manufacturer and distributor name. The materials consist of advertising cards, scraps, trade catalogs, price lists, pamphlets, labels, correspondence on letterhead stationery, bills, receipts, illustrations from periodicals, printed advertisements, periodicals, newspaper clippings, broadsides, shipping documents, handbills, premiums, promotional items, announcements, and business cards. The majority of materials are from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth- century and were created primarily for consumers, traders and distributors. Most of the materials are from the East Coast and there is a large amount of undated material. Ethnic imagery and images of women and children are prominently featured in this series. The location of the company is given when known.

Series 2, Patents and Trademarks, 1875-1904, is arranged alphabetically by patent and trademark applicants. With illustrations and descriptions, many patent and trademark documents come from East Coast patent offices during the 1870s. While this series is limited in scope, it provides numerous examples of the patenting of tobacco brand names and other related products. Additionally, it contains many images of minorities, women, and a variety of ethnic imagery.

Series 3, Bills of Lading, 1833-1925, is arranged alphabetically by location with foreign locations comprising one folder. The materials date from the late nineteenth century, and the majority is from the port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This series not only tells a great deal about shipping and importing, but it also provides detailed information about the parties, countries, and people involved in the process of shipping tobacco around the world. Although the collection is somewhat varied, the majority of the bills of lading have date stamps, detailed port information, and information about the imported tobacco itself. Other locations include Maryland, New York, Cuba, and foreign locales.

Series 4, Lithographs, undated, is a series of labels for packages and products arranged alphabetically. It is a great resource for the study of early American advertising. Although most of the product labels are undated, they are probably of the late nineteenth to early twentieth- century. The majority of companies were based in New York, New York.

Series 5, Ephemera and Photographs, 1750-1957, undated, is arranged and organized by type of material. This series is comprised of general images, cigar store Indian images, auction lists, packing for tobacco products, and advertising cards, and contains a wealth of documentation of the American tobacco market. One of the best resources of this series is its collection of cigar bands. There are two photographs within this series, one depicting the exterior of a tobacco shop and another photograph of ladies working with shade grown tobacco, most likely in Connecticut. This series contains a copy of the Burr McIntosh photograph, "Leaves of Desire".

Series 6, Publications, 1742-1962, undated, consist of articles, books, pamphlets, magazines, and periodicals. One of the most useful portions of this series is the anti-tobacco related publications. The series contains tobacco-related articles. In addition to a few articles about tobacco companies, there are publications that contemplate the issues behind smoking. This series also contains tobacco related clippings from magazines and periodicals. Directories are also included in this series. The sheer variety of the material is vast, including essays from The Farm Quarterly and United States government documents. Tobacco is the only unifying factor. Researchers may be interested in La Santa Yerba, a late nineteenth-century book containing verses and other reflections on the tobacco plant itself.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies.
General:
A 17-acre property with formal gardens on three sides of the French and Palladian style house, designed by the owner, landscape architect Diego Suarez, in 1952. The house was approached from a long driveway to a rectilinear white gravel courtyard bordered by lawn surrounded by a tall hedge of clipped yews. Other gardens include a sunken rectangular reflecting pool behind the house. There is a horseshoe shaped alleĢe of 80 linden trees. Clipped yew hedges formed the base around other stands of trees, demarcated entrances, and in at least one instance were given a whimsical shape. The rectilinear courtyard was echoed by straight-sided containers for shrubs or small trees at the front of the house. There were many statues on the roof of the house and on the grounds of the estate, in keeping with its neo-classical design, and a gracefully curved stairway.
Diego Suarez and Evelyn Marshall Field Suarez (former owners, 1952-unknown); Frederic Rhinelander King (architect, c. 1950).

Merson Garden (Mill Neck, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Mill Neck
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and other information.
General:
Although Alice Recknagel Ireys worked on the design of the Merson garden between 1955 and 1970, the images in this series were taken no later than 1967, since several of them are featured in her book of that year. The Merson's large Georgian house was built in the middle of a field, so Ireys' design included plenty of trees and shrubs to frame and soften its rather formal entrance. Azaleas provided springtime bloom at both the main entrance and elsewhere, while laurel, hollies, andromeda, and myrtle were used for year-round green affect. A terrace at the rear of the house was accented by a honey locust and a dogwood, while holly hedges separated a broad lawn area from surrounding woods and delineated a parking area from the rest of the property.
Additional documentation relating to the garden may be found in the Alice Recknagel Ireys papers in the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect, 1955-1970) and David and Hazel Merson (former owners, circa 1955-1970).

Alice Recknagel Ireys designed the landscaping around this Cape Cod style home in a woodland setting. Photographs, plant lists, and designs for several features were included in Ireys' 1967 book. A small flagstone terrace provided space for outdoor living adjacent to the lawn and was ornamented by a climbing rose and wisteria. Pink azaleas and a white dogwood lined the home's front entrance. A hemlock hedge at the side of the house masked the garage courtyard from view of the flagstone terrace.

General:
With design work by Nelva M. Weber, this was the home of Dr. Inglis Folger Frost, a well-known physician who practiced in Morristown, New Jersey. The site is assumed to have been in the Morristown area, but may have been in nearby New Vernon. The suburban home featured spacious lawns surrounded by trees, and also incorporated specimen trees in the lawn areas. A long driveway was lined on one side by a pleached hedge. A low brick wall at the end of one of the lawns enclosed a small pool accented by whimsical frog and squirrel statues. An awning overhung a modest patio and outdoor living area, while the front of the house was landscaped with randomly placed shrubs and trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1965-1976) and Dr. Inglis Folger Frost (former owner, ca. 1965-1976).

The folder includes worksheets and other information.
General:
Alice Recknagel Ireys began to design this garden in 1953, soon after the property was purchased by James Clemens and Ruth Hackney Chilcott. Ireys had already worked for the Chilcotts at their former home in Bernardsville, New Jersey. For this new garden, which featured an in-ground swimming pool, Ireys designed colorful garden borders backed by hedges for privacy. Lawns surrounded the house, while a terrace for outdoor dining and entertaining had an open view of the pool and nearby woodlands. A wide grass path bordered with lilacs outlined the area between the entrance court and a rose garden. A whimsical feature, pictured in Ireys' 1967 book, was a two-tiered shell fountain providing water for birds as well as the five Chilcott dogs. Molly Adams's photographs show the property at different seasons. Two of the contact print sheets are clearly dated October 1965, while other images are assumed to date from the same year. Additional documentation relating to the Chilcott Garden may be found in the Ireys papers in the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect, 1953-) and James Clemens and Ruth Hackney Chilcott (former owners, 1953-1999).

General:
Ellistan is a country property with views of the surrounding open fields and hills. The name came from Ellistan Boy, the horse that dropped dead after jumping a fence on the property during the Jersey Hunt Cup Race in 1919. Originally, the estate was a self-contained farm with no trees. Trees were planted in the 1930s. The garden areas consist of the formal garden including the water lily pool, the terrace garden, and the children's garden. The main garden is an "old-fashioned" formal garden with straight paths, walls, hedges and deep herbaceous borders. To the east, a hurdle fence with Coral Dawn and Eden roses frames the perennial bed. The terrace garden, at the back of the main house, is designed as an evening garden.

General:
Designed by Eloise A. Ray, the herb garden was a key feature in this property belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gund and was situated adjacent to the home's terrace. Culinary, cosmetic, and healing herbs were grown, giving a variety of colors, scents, and textures. Plant material varied from low-growing sweet woodruff to bushy yellow achilleas. A path of marble chips with scalloped edging (made from asbestos fiber!) outlined the plantings and led from the terrace's seating area along the house. It was roughly paralleled by a winding brick path farther from the house. From the herb garden an open meadow/lawn area led the eye to surrounding woodlands. In addition to the herb garden the home's landscaping featured what appears to have been extensive pleached hedging, lawn areas, and garden elements such as a rustic wooden garden shed. Molly Adams's photographs were apparently taken on assignment to accompany a newspaper article by Rhoda S[pecht Maxwell]. Tarantino; one (CT320024) was subsequently used in Tarantino's 1972 book (see citations below).
Persons associated with the property include Eloise A. Ray (landscape architect, ca. 1960-1969) and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gund (former owners, ca. 1960-1969).

General:
Designed by Nelva M. Weber, this garden was at the home (dating to 1775) of Donald and Beth Straus. Weber's design was inspired by the gardens of Colonial Williamsburg and featured a space enclosed by a picket fence and hedges. Brick walkways defined beds within the garden that were planted with a variety of annuals. Surrounding borders both inside and outside the fenced area contained a mix of annuals and traditional perennials, such as daylilies and peonies, as well as shrubs and small trees. The proximity of the garden to an adjacent patio and the house ensured that the home owners and visitors alike would have ample opportunity to enjoy this lovely garden. Several images of the garden were included in Weber's 1976 book, a clear indication of how she valued this particular project.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1970) and Donald and Beth Straus (former owners, 1967-1982).

The Teviot Farm house, part of which is an old quarry man's stone house, is situated on a west-facing hillside that slopes down to the North Branch of the Raritan River. The river view is the focal point of the house and gardens. The original landscape plan with walls, pergolas, and terraces, as well as much of the foundation planting, still existed unchanged in 1994. On a lower level, an English-type informal curving path with perennial borders leads from the pergola past a tool shed to the top of an old quarry and on into the woods. On the west, the large porch opens on a narrow grass terrace with two old maple trees edged by a low box hedge. A grass path below goes from the rose garden around to the south side of the house overlooking a pasture field which runs along the river.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a copy of an article by Virginia Gaerste about the garden, and other information.
General:
The home of John J. and Martha Virginia McEwan Gaerste, Bittersweet Hill was a country estate that afforded Virginia Gaerste ample opportunity to develop her two-acre garden with plantings for year-round interest. Pear and apple trees from an old orchard added a picturesque note to rolling lawns, while close to the house a brick terrace enclosed by yews served as an entrance court and outdoor dining area. Garden borders and beds featured a variety of perennials including lilies, delphiniums, roses, clematis, and peonies. Hedges defined space while not preventing the eye from gazing on views of adjacent woodlands and hills. Spring flowering bulbs were planted throughout, under trees and against walls to heighten their artistic appeal. Other garden features included a small herb garden near the kitchen, a cutting garden, and a vegetable garden. Because of the large number of images and their comparatively early date this was probably one of Molly Adams first major garden shoots; she is also credited with bringing the garden to the attention of Popular Gardening's editors.
Persons associated with the garden include John J. Gaerste and Martha Virginia McEwan Gaerste (former owners, ca. 1955-1975).

Wallbridge Garden (Millburn, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex County -- Millburn
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
The Wallbridge Garden, approximately one acre, is located at the entrance to Taylor Park in Millburn, New Jersey. The garden is an ongoing community project of the Short Hills Garden Club. The garden features hybrid tea and grandiflora roses planted in concentric rings in wedge-shaped beds hedged with boxwood. At the center is a gazebo, with paths radiating out between and around the beds. Naturalized plantings of spring bulbs, ferns and sweet woodruff, specimen trees, yew hedges and lawns comprise the rest of Wallbridge Garden.
The garden is named for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Wallbridge, whose bequest provided the initial funds for the garden club's renovation. Planning for the garden began circa 1980 during a drought that limited water use, and a trickle hose system was installed in the rose beds that uses non-potable water stored in a tank. The rose beds are mulched with shredded leaves collected in the park.
An earlier garden at that location centered on a bandstand that had become derelict and was removed. Dead trees, deteriorating plants and wire waste baskets were removed, and sturdy wooden benches and trash receptacles were installed. Paths that had been blacktopped were revived with a covering of pea gravel set with hot oil. The original Wallbridge bequest has been supplemented through fund-raising activities of the garden club.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. John Taylor (former owners prior to 1924); Township of Millburn, New Jersey (owner, May 1924 to present); Robert B.
