General Correspondence

Collection Creator:
Cox, Allyn, 1896-1982  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1916-1982
Scope and Contents:
General correspondence documents Cox's career and professional relationships with artists and architects, art institutions and organizations, federal, state and local government agencies and members of congress; private clients including banks and residences; and private social clubs in which Cox was active.

Cox's work at the United States Capitol is well represented here through correspondence, resumes, legal documents including contracts, condition reports, congressional reports and resolutions, and photographic material. Substantial correspondence between Cox and Representative Frank Schwengel document their earliest discussions when Cox first indicated his interest in the Capitol commission, and their ongoing professional relationship as the work continued. Also found is correspondence with artists Arthur Conrad, Adrian Lamb and Deane Keller who worked under Cox in his capacity as supervising artist on the portraits for the Senate Reception Room; and correspondence with the United States Capitol Historical Society, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, the Smithsonian Institution, and various historical societies and organizations with whom Cox consulted during the research phases of the Capitol projects. Correspondence with Cox's assistant, Cliff Young, is generally filed separately.

14 folders of records including correspondence, memoranda, and contracts, document Cox's work for the George Washington Masonic National Memorial.

American Battle Monuments Commission records include correspondence and contracts with architects Francis Keally and John Harbeson, and mosaic fabricator Fabrizio Cassio. Also found is correspondence with: architects John Barrington Bayley, Charles Downing Lay, Philip Trammell Shutze, with whom Cox collaborated on a variety of private residences including the Calhoun House in Atlanta, Georgia, and Roscoe DeWitt, who worked with Cox on a commission for St. Paul's Hospital in Dallas, Texas; artists Stuart Frost, Edward Laning; historian Bernard Berenson; interior decorator Emma Romeyn; journalist Joseph C. Harsch; models, including Jay Martin; and writer Katharine Hayden Salter who wrote many letters to Cox on the subject of Kenyon Cox.

Dumbarton Oaks records include correspondence with Mildred Bliss, Venetian Art Mosaics Inc Studio, and others involved in the project to replace Cox's deteriorating exterior loggia mural of Diana and Actaeon with a glass mosaic design of the painting. Cox's work with Venetian Art Mosaics Inc. also extended to other projects, such as the mosaic panels for the General Grant National Memorial (formerly Grant's Tomb), in New York City.

Art Students League correspondence docments Cox's role as instructor at the League, 1940-1941. Art Commission of the City of New York records document Cox's service on the Art Commission.

Correspondence with Nathaniel Pulsifer, and with Essex County Greenbelt Assocation, documents matters related to the Cox Reservation, a property purchased by Allyn Cox in 1940 as a summer home with a barn which he used as his studio, and which he donated to the Essex County Greenbelt in 1974.

Cox's membership in private social organizations, including nomination and acceptance of new members, can be found in the the Century Association, Cosmopolitan Club, and Cosmos Club folders.

Correspondence is arranged alphabetically, typically in named files for those correspondents represented with 5 or more items, and general letter files for all others.

General:
This 1 ¾ acre property was established by the current owners in 1996.The property features a combination of creative hardscape and landscapes that reflect the local Mediterranean climate. The home itself was built in 1909 by architect John C. Austin for Harriet Ada and William Edgar Webb. The current owners worked with Mark Rios to clear all garden hardscape and remove the garage to make space for their garden design. The rectilinear lines that characterize the front of the house are echoed by the low perimeter wall, boxwood hedge, and layered plantings of muhly grass and California field sedge. The concrete left over from renovation demolition was repurposed to form the main hardscape elements of the property: the swimming pool, walkways, and garden walls. The rear terrace juxtaposes bold square concrete pads with organically shaped stepping-stones, acting as a transition from hardscape to landscape.
Major plantings added during renovation were Western sycamores, London planetrees, a variety of roses, and other plants and shrubs. In 2002, the owners purchased the property to the south and used the space to enhance their gardens and added two sports courts. In 2014, they replaced 10,000 square feet of lawn with meadow grasses such as evergreen, red fountain, Linheimer's muhly grass, and porcupine grass. The landscape design allowed for a series of garden "rooms." These various rooms consist of citrus plantings and an elevated vegetable garden, rose and perennial gardens, a podocarpus maze, and an expansive lawn. There are a variety of colorful cooking, dining, and seating areas surrounded by elegant plantings throughout the property. A series of three rectangular garden beds that reflect the colors of the interior décor sit between the rear terrace and outdoor dining room. A gravel walkway adjacent to the pool is framed by a garden of 150 rose bulbs including climbers, grandiflora, floribunda, hybrid tea, and English shrub roses, with wooden archways placed throughout the path.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. William Edgar Webb (former owner, 1909-1922); Harriet Webb (former owner, 1909-1922); Mr. Charles K. Henry (former owner, circa 1923); Walter Farabe (former owner, 1924); Kathleen Farabe (former owner, circa 1924); Jonothan Platt Underwood (former owner, 1924-1926); John C. Austin (architect, 1909); Mark Rios (landscape architect, 1995-ongoing).
