Summary:
The Lois W. Poinier Collection documents the work of Lois W. Poinier, a self-taught garden designer who designed scores of gardens, most of them in New Jersey.
Scope and Contents note:
The Lois W. Poinier Collection contains 1,089 35mm slides documenting before-and-after images of almost 100 gardens designed by garden designer and Garden Club of America member Lois W. Poinier of New Jersey. Most gardens are located in New Jersey, but there are some in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. The collection includes some gardens designed by Poinier's mother, Helen Page Wodell, and aunt, Lois Page Cottrell, who practiced under the firm name of Wodell & Cottrell. The collection is particularly helpful as it shows the evolution of gardens under construction and in their 'finished' state.

The collection also includes an album of images documenting gardens owned by Lois W. Poinier and her mother, Helen Page Wodell in New Jersey and Connecticut as well as an extensive slide lecture and script compiled by Poinier entitled "Ninety Years in a Garden" that documents the story and evolution of three of those gardens in New Jersey. Another series of glass lantern slides of numerous gardens dating from the 1920s and 1930s was used extensively for garden lecture purposes by both women. Finally, there are images by Lois W. Poinier of numerous private and public gardens throughout the United States and the United Kingdom that she visited.
Biographical/Historical note:
Lois W. Poinier is a self-taught garden designer who began her career in association with her mother, Helen Page Wodell. Wodell, along with her sister, Lois Page Cottrell, had established the garden design firm of Wodell & Cottrell, in Short Hills, New Jersey in 1931. The majority of Lois W. Poinier's design work was in New Jersey. Mrs. Poinier is a member of the Garden Club of America.

General:
"This historic eighteenth century residence was deeded by the Crown Grant to the Thornes, a Quaker family and has remained in their possession ever since. It was famed in the nineteenth century for the quality of their breeding cattle and for their standard bred horses."
"It was Mr. Thorne's great grandmother, the late Mrs. Oakleigh Thorne, who was responsible for the planning and planting of Thorndale's gardens which were for many years listed as the most beautiful in the world. The gardens have seen many changes through the years, but are still a beautiful setting for the largest classic white clapboard house with ist huge columns on its portico. The trees, white pine, spruce, red oaks, white oaks, maples and elms have been assiduously tended for decades."
"Most of the gardens are within sight and sound of water. Old stone steps rise from the upper pond's edge to green lawn. A path circles the pool where water-lilies bloom and dogwood and azaleas abound. A swimming pool is passed on the way to the lower pond and water pavilion. The pavilion, designed by Jerome Allen, architect, stands two stories high to command a long vista."
"A stream links the two ponds and is shaded by birch, dogwood and elms. Drifts of daffodils are naturalized in the fields beyond."
"Pierced brick walls with espaliered fruit trees surround the yew garden. Here you will find a great many varieties of taxus and magnificent topiary work. At the entrance to trim paths stand eighteenth century English stone monkeys playing musical instruments."
Mr. and Mrs. Oakleigh Thorne also owned Las Tejas, Santa Barbara, California.
Persons associated with the property include: Edward Van Altena (colorist for lantern slides); Nellie B. Allen (landscape architect); Helen Page Wodell (landscape architect); Jerome Allen (architect); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect); Helen Thorne (former owner); Wodell and Contrell (landscape architect).
