General:
The garden and house were first designed in 1939 on a flat ¾ acre property in San Marino, a small suburb of Los Angeles 30 miles from the coast. The area has a Mediterranean-like climate that receives approximately 14 inches of rain per year, in the winter only. Original to the front is a large lawn with Viburnum suspensum hedges on each side. Past the driveway, original concrete blocks surround the courtyard, and continue around both sides of the house and the perimeter of the rear garden. The original rear garden was mostly lawn, edged by a narrow path, hedges of Viburnum suspensum and an assortment of trees, including three large Quercus agrifolia, the coast live oak most common to this area. Still in existence from 1939 are the mature Plantanus ramosa (California sycamore) at the courtyard entrance. The second owners, in the 1960s turned part of the back lawn into lathe houses for their camellia collection, replacing some of the Viburnum suspensum with camellia specimens, which still exist.
After the original owners sold the property in 1960, it was owned by a second family for nearly a decade before being sold a third time to the present owners in 1969. Since the present owners bought the property, the gardens have undergone multiple revisions by four landscape architects, including the notable Robert Fletcher, who worked intermittently with the owners between 1985-1995. In every revision to this estate's gardens, every effort was made to preserve and incorporate the very mature trees and shrubs which provide form, color and shade. While the estate has plantings in the front lawn and flanking the east and west sides of their home, the most impressive landscape features are in the rear of the property, particularly the borders surrounding the central lawn and the plantings along the 'Bouquet Canyon' stone path to the pool. In the 1970s landscape architect Chuck Hoffman designed the rear garden, emphasizing the desire for informal and naturalistic garden spaces for outdoor living around the French colonial-style house. He designed the swimming pool, two terraces, and created curving borders around the lawn, and added four Liriodendron tulipifera (tulip trees). In the 1980s landscape designer Robert Fletcher built on Hoffman's footprint, adding more distinctive plant material, installing six bullet-shaped Syzygium paniculatum to anchor the borders, and turned one terrace into a small stone patio after an addition to the house. Nurseryman Frank Burkard added Phormium tenax (New Zealand flax), roses and other shrubs in the 1990s.
Garden features at the entrance of the courtyard include an espalier Magnolia grandiflora, a four-part sculpture, "Kyoto Protocol" by Ray Meeker, which is surrounded by Ophiopogon (mondo grass), with an overhanging Olea europaea (olive) and Plantanus racemosa and a large collection of potted succulent varieties on the terrace selected by landscape architect John Caitlin in 1970 for their heat tolerance.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. M.D. Schatzman (former owners, 1939-1960); Carla Barker Hind and William O. Hind (former owners; 1960-1969); H. Roy Kelley (architect, 1939); John Caitlin (landscape architect, 1970); Charles Hoffman (landscape architect, 1972); Robert M.

Scope and Contents:

General:
The half-acre property had a 1924 salmon colored Italian revival style house with three mature live oaks and tapestry hedges when the current owners moved there in 1996. They enclosed the front courtyard with matching stucco walls and wrought iron gates, changed the hardscape from asphalt to decomposed granite, and re-routed the walkway to the front door to showcase a live oak. Forest green is used as an accent color on shutters and large ceramic jars, and salmon-colored azaleas were planted in the foundation beds. Azalea standards, a matching climbing rose, and a collection of pink zonal geraniums in terra cotta pots create a unified palette in the front garden. Formal parterres were built along one side of the house and planted with pastel-colored hybrid tea and floribunda roses and lavender, with a fountain and small stone bench. On the same axis and through a small gate there is another set of four parterres planted with daffodils, delphinium or zinnia in season with a second fountain in the center.

More potted zonal geraniums are displayed on a low wall at one end of the pink stone terrace, succeeded by a patch of lawn and another live oak and sitting area. A 60-foot long vegetable garden for heirloom tomatoes at the back of the property has been replaced by a bocce ball court. A swimming pool was built with concrete planters at the corners for lemon and orange trees in keeping with the Mediterranean style. A salmon colored loggia with comfortable seating has been added along the side of the pool where there is a small waterfall. A shady side of the garden has a large mirror with ornamental banana plants, clipped boxwood, potted plants and two small statues. The owners named their property Casa Favorita honoring Mexican tradition.

Persons associated with the garden include: Hannah Nevin Shaw and Major Roy A. Shaw (former owners, 1923-1958); James Drake MacNeil (former owner, 1958-1968); Phillip Cushing McGrath (former owner, 1968-1996); James R.

General:
Years ago there was a cherimoya orchard on the sloping hillside of this three-acre property, covered with woodchips when the current owners installed formal rose, rock and woodland gardens, beginning in 2006. Tall eucalyptus trees for shade and a massive Monterey cypress that was a focal point, as well as an antique stone fountain, were found on the property. Banks of landscape roses including a rose hedge bordering a new swimming pool were integrated with the existing cypress hedge, oaks, olives and arbutus, and sweeping lawns on the upper level of the property. Additional hedges, mature specimen trees, citrus trees and bulbs were planted, and dry stone walls dotted with shaped privet divide a slope into terraces. The old hillside orchard was transformed with a man-made stream that tumbles over rocks with meandering gravel and stone paths that lead downhill to a labyrinth of stone and silver carpet groundcover. There are David Austin shrub roses and large swaths of landscape roses throughout the property with occasional benches for sitting and enjoying the views of gardens, ocean and mountains.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Selby Sullivan (former owners, 2002-2006); Don Nulty (architect, 2002-2005); Dan Bifano (master rosarian, 2005-present); Bruce Garcia (stream installation, 2006); Jim Melnik (landscape designer, 2006-2007); Ernesto Flores (head gardener and garden contractor, 2006-present).

General:
Located on 1/4 of an acre, the first Bennett garden in Los Angeles, designed in 1994-95, reflected the owner's Midwestern roots and love of English cottage gardens, with picket fences and lots of colorful flowers. In 2003, that garden was replaced with one that would be more appropriate to the Mediterranean climate of southern California. It included a terrace with a wisteria-crowned pergola and an outdoor fireplace for outdoor living. The Bennett Garden featured a limited palette, mostly shades of green, yellow and white, with contrasting textures. The lawn was reduced and perennials and bulbs spilled over the stone walkways and planted containers. Non-fruiting olive trees with soft green leaves gave height to the garden and an olive hedge disguised the vegetable and cutting garden that was planted behind the house in two wedge-shaped beds. A rectangular dark reflecting pool with steps forming a bridge was installed and filled with mosquito fish for insect and algae control. Fig trees were planted in front of a separate garden room and trained to grow together to provide shade for the outbuilding during the hot summer months and let in light in the winter, a passive solar design. This garden was maintained organically without pesticides or fertilizer.
The garden also features includes furniture purchased in England.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Fletcher (landscape architect, 1987-1988); M. Brian Tichenor (landscape designer, 1988); Patricia Brenner (landscape architect, 1990); Judy Horton (landscape designer, 2003).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
This 2009 contemporary glass and steel house on a one-acre site was designed to blend into its southern California hillside location of chaparral and massive sandstone outcroppings, with plantings and hardscaping incorporating native materials. Garden areas include a kitchen and cutting garden sheltered by a sandstone boulder that was left in place, terraces for dining and entertaining, small courtyards inset between the walls of the many-sided house, and a lap pool terrace. Clipped hedges of boxwood, coastal rosemary and privet add green to the muted palette, along with native live oak trees and field grown olive trees that have irregular shapes. Other drought tolerant plants on the property include agave, spurge and pincushion protea, which add yellow to the mostly green outdoor palette. Initially an ecologically appropriate sedge lawn was installed but it was replaced by gravel in 2013. The hardscape is locally quarried sandstone and gravel on a sand base with planting pockets for ground covers such as silver carpet, the feathery texture mimicking the native plants of the chaparral. Patches of color are provided by native Douglas iris and sweet peas grown in the kitchen garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Barton Myers (FAIA) (house architect, 2005-2009); Mark Rios (FASLA/FAIA) (landscape architect, 2006-present); Debbie Shaw (landscape contractor, 2005- ); Andy Newmann (guest house architect, 2003).

Camellia Hedges (Atherton, California)
United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Atherton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
Owned by two successive generations, Camellia Hedges is a garden for all seasons. Designed in the tradition of an English plantsman's garden, it incorporates formal elements into a rich tapestry of plant collections including camellias, cherries, magnolias, spring bulbs, roses, hydrangeas, clematis, rhododendrons, and numerous perennials. The garden includes what is considered to be the largest private garden collection of noteworthy camellias in northern California, if not on the west coast.
Though the garden was already established in 1960 when purchased by the first generation of the family that presently owns it, it underwent an extensive redesign in 1995 to transform it into the English style that presently presides.
The home was originally built in 1938 and the original garden included extensive plantings of camellias as well as hydrangeas, boxwood hedges and oaks, including a 400 year-old coastal live oak under which sat a Japanese mound featuring a waterfall, pool and bridge. With the loss of the live oak in 1995, the back garden was redesigned, preserving the perimeter hedges and a selection of the established trees while incorporating the English garden design, including a kitchen and cutting garden featuring raised beds and thuja hedges, a fountain terrace, a Chinese garden room, and an expansive serpentine brick border. The redesign of the front garden maintained by many of the original plantings and incorporated camellia, azalea, hydrangea and boxwood transferred from the original back garden. The front garden includes a woodland garden room, as well as a formal garden room preserved from the original landscape design, featuring large flower beds framed by boxwood hedges.
Persons associated with the garden include: the Savage family (former owners, 1938-date unknown), the McLean family (former owners); Benjamin Swig (former owner, date unknown-1960); Kathryn L. and Cullen W. Coates (former owners, 1960-1984); Leo Sharp (architect, 1938); Sam Spinelli (gardener, 1960-1965); Thomas Church (landscape architect, ca. 1970-1980); Chris Christopherson (architect, 1984); Jack Stafford (landscape architect, 1984); Myra Brocchini (architect, 1996); Jonathan Plant (landscape architect, horticulturist, 1996); and Ben Gill (gardener, 1965- ).

Originally one acre this property was subdivided down to one-half acre by a previous owner, leaving the Georgian style house without a garden. Landscape architect Thomas D. Church designed a new garden behind the house that features a trefoil shaped swimming pool bordered by trees and a privacy hedge, next to a strip of lawn and woodlands garden. Church designed hardscape including masonry walls, gates, walkways and a brick surround for the pool that includes four planters. Trees in the back and side yards include coast Live oak, stone pine, maytens, coast redwood, and flowering cherries. The front and driveway gardens were designed by landscape architect Walter Guthrie, with the strong horizontal lines of boxwood hedges around the lawn and seasonal color from flowering cherries and pistache trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Dr. and Mrs. Walter Chidester (former owners, 1917); Mr. and Mrs. Richard Parina (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Porter Sesnon (former owners, -1974); Thomas Dolliver Church (landscape architect, 1975-1977); Walter Guthrie (1932-2006) (landscape architect, 1977-1978); Claud and Cali McCroskey (horticulturists, 1993-2013); William C.

United States of America -- Arkansas -- Jefferson County -- Pine Bluff
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plan, oral history sheet, narrative description, and plant list.
General:
The house and gardens were inspired by a house called "Green Leaves" in Mississippi that was built around a large oak tree. The plans for this garden involved a glass house wrapped around the largest of three oak trees on the property. The plan featured a large flagstone terrace with an "S" curved seating wall built around the largest oak and an open lawn for the children to play in. The plan also provided for privacy by the planting of a deep "woodsy" border along the property line to the east. Plantings of oaks, live oaks, pines, and dogwoods over camellias and azleas, set in deep beds bordered by mondo grass, were installed. Holly hedges marked the property lines east and north. Access to the side yard from the back garden was through a gate set in a brick wall that connected the house to the property line to the east. Another huge oak gave shade to the west front of the house. A grove of river birches and naturalized daffodils was planted close to the south side of the house. Another holly hedge made an enclosed area around the west library window. Circa 1960, the owners increased the depth of the center tree and shrub border about 20 feet and added more azaleas and dogwood trees. Owners after 1987 have not maintained the garden according to its original plan. Most of the trees are now gone.
Persons associated with the property include: J. Duke Moody (landscape architect, 1955); Louis M. Dunklin (architect, 1955).

General:
The first gardens at Las Palmas Altas were the creation of John Rhuart, who noticed similarities in the climates of Arizona and South Africa and brought to Arizona tropical and subtropical varieties he had seen growing in South African gardens. The three acre property on the warmer side of Camelback Mountain was undeveloped until Rhuart moved there circa 1960, building a ranch style house and a swimming pool with glass mosaics of fish on the bottom. Fencing and garden artifacts were brought from his family home in Phoenix as well as 36 mature Mexican fan palms, now 100 feet tall. Boulders from road construction up the mountain were brought to this property and used to build nearly fifty small irregular terraces connected by a descending path. A redwood Japanese teahouse was moved from Phoenix to Las Palmas Altas and sited near the swimming pool. Hedges of oleander and olive protected more sensitive jacaranda, seven species of orchid trees, and 100 bougainvillea plants comprising 67 different species. Brightly colored beds of tropical and subtropical African daisies, anemones, nasturtium and ranunculi were planted in terraces contrasting with plantings of cacti, yuccas, agave and other desert plants.
Since 2002 the current owners have been researching and partly reconstructing Las Palmas Altas, consulting Rhuart family archives and photographs as well as records at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. It took six months to remove 30 tons of overgrown plants and brush but they uncovered rare saguaro seedlings, dragon trees, bougainvillea with 12-inch diameter trunks and enormous agaves. Desert natives, South American cacti and South African aloes are grown now with more modest plantings of colorful annuals. Modern irrigation has been installed where practical in some parts of the garden but hand-watering is still a daily, time-consuming task.

Scope and Contents:

General:
An allée of magnolias leads to this six-acre property created in 2000 with both house and formal gardens inspired by Italianate design. Clipped boxwoods are used as foundation plants, hedges, borders for geometric parterres and formal knot gardens, at the entrance to garden rooms, and also are planted in containers. Sycamore, arborvitae, beech and crape myrtle form canopies in distinct areas, adding height and integrating the landscaped garden designed by Norman Kent Johnson with the surrounding woodlands. The boxwood are trimmed several times each year and the plants in the borders along the walkways are kept uniform. The owner strives to keep Boxwood to the original formal design.
Ornamental features include an armillary sphere on a turquoise base, statuary and faux bois garden furniture. The color turquoise recurs throughout the garden on containers planted with small trees and shrubs and in a border of blue hydrangea. The stone motor court at the entrance to the house was laid in geometric patterns that are repeated in the parterres. The pathways are covered in crushed walnut stone, and there are wide stone steps that accommodate changes in elevation and define the garden's rooms.
Persons associated with the garden include: Norman Kent Johnson, ASLA (landscape designer, 2000 - present); Richard Ireland Pigford and Andrew Spencer Hicks (architects, 2000 - present).

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.

Provenance:
Tobacco Trade and Industry is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.

Scope and Contents:

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 allée 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).

General:
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.
