Place:
Wing Haven (New Vernon, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Morris County -- New Vernon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopy of an excerpt from an undated garden tour program, and other information.
General:
According to an excerpt from a garden tour program, this was the garden of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Lake Bower and complemented a contemporary home designed by Emil Schmidlin that won the New Jersey Society of Architects 1953 Award of Merit for excellence in design. Although Alice L. Dustan landscaped the area immediately around the house, the rest of the property remained heavily wooded or was planted with shrubs and fruit trees, and included striking views across the countryside. Punctuating the landscaping were several bird feeders, reflecting the Bowers's devotion to ornithology (Wing Haven was a banding station of the Fish and Wildlife Service). It is possible that the Bowers are the same Francis Lake Bower and Winifred Ferry Bower who are buried in Greenridge Cemetery in Saratoga Springs, New York, and the birth and death dates of these individuals are included in their index entries.
Persons associated with the garden include Alice L. Dustan (landscape designer, ca. 1953); Emil Schmidlin (architect, 1953); and Francis Lake Bower and Winifred Ferry Bower (former owners, ca. 1953-1994).

Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series contains material that supplement John P. Harrington's Southern California/Basin field notes. There are materials on the Chumash, Gabrielino, Cahuilla, Luiseno/Juaneno, Chemehuevi, Diegueno, and Washo.

His Chumash files consist of mixed Barbareno biographical and linguistic notes, notes on the rehearing of Harrington's Ineseno dictionary, the beginning of a translation from the 1920s as well as some miscellaneous Barbareno vocabulary, a copy of Scouler's Obispeno vocabulary, and notes referring to the informant for H. W. Henshaw's Santa Rosa vocabulary (B.A.E. ms. 296). The Gabrielino section contains data on placenames which Harrington extracted from Reid's vocabulary in the California Farmer and from Alfred L. Kroeber's article "Notes on the Shoshonean Dialects of Southern California." There are also ten miscellaneous slips illustrating various points of grammar with simple sentences. There are five pages of Cahuilla vocabulary from the multilingual informant Adan Castillo. For Luiseno/Juaneno there are two pages of information on Rancho Neguil. From the early group of Chemehuevi notes is a page numbered 129, a missing sheet from the set of field notes which Harrington's wife Carobeth obtained from Annie Laird (See Chemehuevi subseries in Southern California/Basin series). There are also notes on geographical information. Diegueno material consists of the record of a placename trip which Harrington made with Angel Quilpe to a location identified as "Los Templos," probably around 1925. Notes on the site include textual descriptions and sketch maps with indications of mileage and photographs taken. Other places mentioned en route are Salt Creek, Salt Canyon, San Pedro, and Aguaje de Martinez. The bulk of Washo file consists of field notes which Harrington obtained from Verna Porterfield on February 27, 1915. He recorded a few notes on the phonetics of the language, a basic vocabulary (natural, anatomical, and relationship terms, and words for animals and numbers), and several simple sentences. Information from Mr. Bailey which includes references to Carson Indian School in Stewart, Nevada, and give summaries of two myths. In addition, there are five typed pages of Paiute, Washo, and Shoshoni ornithological terms which Harrington extracted from the record of the U.S. Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, 1877.

The subseries also contains general and miscellaneous materials, notes on collections of artifacts, records relating to music, notes from conversations, and notes on secondary sources.

Miscellaneous materials on southern California were accumulated during the 1920s. They include a sketchy outline for a proposed study of California Indian placenames. His rough notes for the write-up contain summaries of early fieldwork (1912 -1921) from which he planned to extract data, ideas for illustrations, lists of "things to do," and comments on plans for future work to complete the project. Additional miscellany includes a printed caption with Mohave and Chemehuevi names (photograph not located and intended use not known), rough tracings of several maps, and notes regarding letters from Dr. Arthur De Jacoby and Elmer J. Dawson.

His notes on artifacts include information from George Heye and others regarding artifacts from the Burton Mound site in Santa Barbara, California, which Harrington had helped to excavate. There is also information which Harrington obtained during discussions with a Mr. James who collected a variety of artifacts at Salisbury Canyon, Oak Spring burial, Round Corral Cave, and other locations near his home. There are several references to photographs which Harrington made of the objects; these are on file in the N.A.A. The third group of notes was made during a visit to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Almost all of the references are to specimens which Dr. Stephen Bowers collected in 1885 from San Martin Cave in Los Angeles County, California.

There are three types of material relating to music in California. There is an undated form letter from Charles F. Lummis enclosing a prospectus of a proposal to publish "Spanish Songs of Old California." This is followed notes on Indian music and jazz. which Harrington probably obtained from Frances Densmore. The bulk of the file contains records relating to a proposal for collecting and publishing California Indian songs. The work was to be undertaken by ethnomusicologist Helen H. Roberts with the assistance of Harrington under the auspices of the Community Arts Association of Santa Barbara, California, and the resulting book was to be published by Yale University Press.

The section of notes from conversations contains brief records from a number of interviews with colleagues and nonlinguistic informants. They range in date from 1925 to 1936.

Place:
Northington Farm (Avon, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Hartford -- Avon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, extensive personal recollections and a photocopy of an article.
General:
Alice and Ostrom Enders called their 57-acre farm 'Northington' in recognition of an historic name of its Connecticut location. The couple commissioned Alice's brothers, Charles Hooker Talcott and Seth Talcott of Talcott and Talcott, to build their house in the latest International Style that had emerged from Europe. Cheviot sheep were raised on the farm and hay was grown in the surrounding fields, and near the barn there was a large vegetable garden with a cutting garden of flowers. In the 1950s a sunken 120-square-foot greenhouse was built onto the shed in which Mrs. Enders raised rare geraniums and other flowers. Three ponds were dug to attract wildfowl which were pinioned and protected by electric fences. Waterfowl were a particular interest of Mr. Enders who raised breeding pairs and incubated eggs in the basement starting in the mid-1950s. Several species were given to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. and the Bronx Zoo in New York. Along with Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley, Mr. Enders bred Nene geese and after several years' efforts sent the hatchlings to Hawaii. In the 1970's a Duck House was built so the waterfowl could winter on the Connecticut property.
The original house was demolished circa 1998 and another house was built in its place. The greenhouse and a mature white oak tree still survive. The current owner has some of the garden and farm tools used by the Enders on display in her home and is interested in restoring the gardens. Ornamental trees have been planted recently.
Ostrom Enders added a three-room library to the original structure to house his collection of 6,000 ornithological and natural history books. The collection was donated to the Watkinson Library at Trinity College in 1982.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ostrom Enders and Alice Dudley Talcott Enders (former owners, 1931-1994); Bernard and Bonnie Kershner (former owners from 1996); Charles Hooker Talcott and Seth Talcott (architects, 1932-1933); William Spivey (caretaker); John Binders (caretaker); Mr. Pang (caretaker); Ray Shookus (caretaker).
