Archival materials
Scope and Contents note:
Series consists of Vedder's personal, professional, and family correspondence, comprised mostly of incoming letters as well as some copies or drafts of outgoing letters. Correspondents include family, friends, artists, dealers, collectors, admirers, and publishers. The bulk of the business correspondence was written by Caroline R. Vedder on behalf of her husband, including correspondence with collectors, people who commissioned work, dealers, and publishers.

Earliest correspondence consists of letters sent and received by various members of Vedder's immediate and extended family, including his parents, Elizabeth and Elihu Vedder, Sr., his brother, Alexander V., his maternal grandparents, Alexander and Agnes Vedder, his maternal aunt, Eveline Caister, and his paternal uncles, Levi and John Vedder. Early letters document the time the family spent apart while Elihu, Sr., was living and working in Cuba and later while the boys were living with their grandparents for a time. Of particular note is an 1850 letter from Vedder to his mother expressing his interest in drawing.

Family correspondence consists primarily of letters between and amongst Vedder, his father, and his brother (Vedder's letters to his father detail his travels in Europe from 1857 to 1860 and his first attempts to earn a living by drawing); letters between Caroline R. Vedder, her mother, sisters, and nieces; letters between Vedder and his wife when either one of them was away from home, traveling or conducting business; and letters between Caroline R. Vedder and the children: Enoch, when he was away at a school and then living in the U.S. and Anita, when she was traveling and away from home.

Personal correspondence concerns matters such as Vedder's engagement and marriage to Caroline Rosekrans, the death and settling the estate of his brother, Alexander, his travels, including a trip up the Nile in 1889-1890, and his friendship with other artists. Professional correspondence concerns: his illustrations and engravings of his work for various books and poems, including Enoch Arden (1863) and The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (1884); the exhibiiton of his work (for instance, in the Paris International Exposition of 1878; in gallery shows in Boston and New York in 1880 and in London in 1899; and at the Architectural League of New York in 1895) as well as the unsuccessful attempt to show in the Royal Academy Exhibition of 1876; the sale of his work to private individuals and commissions for work; the reproduction and copyright of his work; Vedder's published protest in the December 1878 issue of L'Art; his award of first prize in the Competition of Christmas Cards at the American Art Gallery, and the subsequent reproduction and sale of his Christmas cards; a mural project for the Chicago World's Fair in 1892; a proposed mural project for the Boston Public Library; his book The Digressions of V (1910); and various other financial and business matters.

Also found is some posthumous correspondence sent and received by Anita Vedder, concerning gifts, sales, and exhibitions of Vedder's work.

Bide-A-While (Bar Harbor, Maine)
United States of America -- Maine -- Bar Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets garden maps, photocopies of images and other information.
Bide-A-While is a garden located on a 4.96 acres with a historic cottage situated the shore of Frenchman's Bay. This shingle style "cottage," designed by Frank Miles Day of Philadelphia, with Frederick L. Savage, supervising architect, was built of cedar shingles and Mount Desert granite in 1896 for Mr. and Mrs. J.L. Ketterlinus of Philadelphia. Mr. Ketterlinus owned a family lithography firm and Mrs. Ketterlinus was the daughter of one of John D. Rockefeller's original partners. The second owner was Theodore Marburg, Ambassador to Belgium.
Ostrich ferns are planted on each side of the winding driveway. To the left, in the foundation of the carriage house, are vegetables and special lettuces planted in an ornamental manner. Beyond is a rose garden planted primarily with David Austen roses, under-planted with perennial geraniums. A tea house overlooks the backyard's expansive lawn. There is a small shade garden under a stand of fir and golden chain trees. There are more than sixteen golden chain trees on the property. There are still many spruce trees over 100 years old on the property, even after a spruce bark beetle infestation in the area. Originally, as large white potted hydrangeas were placed near the entrance to the house, Annabelle hydrangeas, currently, have a large presence with various species of viburnum planted in borders which are reminiscent of the original Victorian moon garden.
There is a shaded path meandering through the woods, with remnants of a pool, a stream, and an old Italianate garden. The most notable plantings on the property are the perennial and annual borders that lead to the rocky seashore. The borders are reminiscent of the islands viewed from the long porch with the lawn representing Frenchman's Bay. A granite bench, found in pieces in the woods, now had a prominent place near a large Lunaform pot that draws the eyes to the hills of Gouldsboro. A number of Solderholtz urns, planters, and a bird bath provide additional accents.

Persons associated with the garden include: J.L Ketterlinus (former owner, 1896), Theodore Mayburg (former owner, no dates), Louis Wolfe (former owner, 1976-1980), Trudy Sabol (garden designer, 2003-2011), Whitney Granholm (garden designer, 2012- ) and Dennis Bracale of Gardens By Design (restoration landscape architect, 2003), Frank Miles Day (architect, 1894-1896), Fred Savage (supervising architect, 1894-1896).
