Date:
circa 1920-present
Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.
Restrictions:
Access to original images by appointment only. Researcher must submit request for appointment in writing. Certain items may be restricted and not available to researchers. Please direct reference inquiries to the Archives of American Gardens: aag@si.edu.
Rights:
Archives of American Gardens encourages the use of its archival materials for non-commercial, educational and personal use under the fair use provision of U.S. copyright law. Use or copyright restrictions may exist. It is incumbent upon the researcher to ascertain copyright status and assume responsibility for usage. All requests for duplication and use must be submitted in writing and approved by Archives of American Gardens.

Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Series 4: Photographic Reference Material

Creator:
Warshaw, Isadore, d. 1969  Search this
Extent:
0 Boxes
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Date:
undated
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years.

Series 4 consists of photographs, slides and transparencies of items found in the collection.

An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana .
Scope and Contents note:
Over the years the Museum has created a number of photographic copies of items in the Warshaw Collection. These photographs were taken for many purposes. Some photographs were created in response to requests by researchers for images to be used in publications, exhibitions, and for other purposes. Other photographs were taken to create a file of photographic slides and prints that serves as a quick reference source for researchers. Several thousand photographic images from the Warshaw Collection were transferred to an experimental videodisc by the Institution's Office of Photographic and Printing Services (OPPS). The videodisc is available for viewing on equipment in the Archives Center.

Use of the prints, slides, and videodisc reduces wear and tear on the collection, permits rapid searching through many images, and assures the researcher--in most cases--that a photographic negative or transparency already exists and that copies can be reproduced relatively quickly and inexpensively. Searching the collection's photographic reproductions is especially appropriate for researchers who want to see general images of subjects such as "women in advertising" or an advertisement from a particular year.

SERIES 1 consists of photo prints arranged alphabetically by the same subject categories as the business ephemera vertical files. They are housed in three-ring notebook binders and may be used on a self-service basis in the Archives Center reference room. The prints generally bear a negative or transparency number on the reverse side. This permits researchers to order copies for their own use through OPPS. The reference archivist will assist with procedures for ordering copies.

SERIES 2 contains 35mm color slides arranged in the order in which they were photographed and carry a serial number that links them to the duplicate transparency. They are also housed in three-ring notebook binders and may be used on a self-service basis.

SERIES 3 includes color transparencies and some black and white photonegatives arranged in the order in which they were photographed. A listing of captions for these transparencies is available to researchers. This listing provides a subject heading, the name of the creator of the item, the type of item, and, often, its date. The listing also includes the transparency number and the frame numbers for transparencies that have been placed on the videodisc. These materials are housed in shoe boxes and may be used upon request.

SERIES 4 consists of one videodisc with random selections of images from the Warshaw Collection, along with images of objects from other museums prepared by OPPS. The Warshaw Collection images are found on the disk between frames 40,770 and 41,864 and between frames 43,168 and 44,890. OPPS prepared two volumes of an inventory of color transparencies (see series three), found in the Archives Center reference room. The frame numbers of transparencies which that on the videodisc are marked in pencil beneath the transparency number. The transparency number always is preceded by the notation "CBA." The inventory listing also indicates the subject area of the image (but not necessarily the same subject category as the list of Warshaw Collection headings), a brief caption, and sometimes the size and color of the original item.
Arrangement note:
Arranged in 4 subseries.

4.1: Photoprints

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.

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Wines 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:
In 1953, Warshaw launched a year-long collecting campaign, soliciting material on whiskey and wine. He expanded this effort to also include items related to the drinking habit of notable persons. The wine category has been separated from this original grouping and contains material primarily related to wine traders and merchants, wine auction and exhibition materials, import and export legislation, and the creation and subsequent history of certain wines. Additional topics represented in the collection include medicinal uses of wine, cooking and wine, wine-related organizations, and wine in religious traditions.

The bulk of the represented content is print material including advertisements, business records, price lists, invoices, correspondence, and import/export records. While several companies are represented, there are no comprehensive business records for any entity represented in the collection.

Advertising represents a large portion of the collection, and provides a varied and expansive look at the evolution of wine-related art in advertising. Other strengths of the collection lie in the diversity of subject material, allowing researchers to get a broad introduction to several facets of the wine industry and wine in culture.
Arrangement:
Wines is arranged in three series.

Also included is a partial Brand Name Index - Guide Supplement (Box 1, Folder Admin).
