Panama Canal (Panama)
Date:

Summary:
W. P. Stine was an engineer involved in the building of the Panama Canal. He also worked on road building projects in Panama. The collection consists of blueprints, letters, and a letterpress book pertaining to the Panama Canal.
Scope and Contents note:
The collection consists of bound letters and documents dated 1905-1909, a blueprint plan of Santiago dated June 10, 1911, a postcard, and several miscellaneous letters and documents pertaining to Walter Stine's involvement in the completion of the Panama Canal. It also includes a copy of the Commission's standard contract. The loose papers were found stashed in the front of the letterpress book. The letterpress book and several documents are written in Spanish; the ink is fading and bleeding, which has caused some of the fragile pages to disintegrate.
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged in one series.

Series 1, Panama Canal Papers, 1904-1911
Biographical/Historical note:
Born in Grand Haven, Michigan on April 2, 1883, Walter Pearce Stine graduated from the University of Michigan in 1904 as an engineer. Upon graduation, he and several classmates traveled south to Panama to help the Canal Commission construct the Panama Canal. He directed the building of a network of roads along Panama's Pacific coast and later became Panama's Director of Public Works. Upon his return to the United States, Stine joined Gulf Oil Corporation and retired to Beaumont, Texas. He was prominent in professional engineering societies, including the Texas Society of Professional Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers. He passed away on January 23, 1957 after a brief illness.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
A nine acre property with woodlands and an ocean view has a modern, geometric style house built in the 1970s, replacing a 19th century summer house. The garden designed by landscape architect Patrick Chassé surrounds the house and terrace, with a manageably sized lawn, adding color but also complimenting the house's lines and angles. This semi-formal garden is enclosed in a wooden fence with a decorative gate. Features include an antique birdbath and large jar made by Maine potter Eric Ellis Soderholtz and a small round pool cut into the terrace with sculptures of bronze herons. Across the driveway there is a large cutting garden enclosed by deer fencing. Adironadack chairs are scattered on the lawn on the ocean side of the house, with a view of Cromwell Cove and the wildflower garden that separates the lawn from the beach.
Persons associated with the garden include: Henry M. Prentis (former owner, circa 1860); Edward Coles and Molly Coles (former owners, late 1860s and circa 1900-circa 1943); Jackson Laboratory (former owners, 1943-1963); John Pearce (architect, 1973); Patrick Chassé (landscape architect, 1990-1992); Eric Ellis Soderholtz (sculptor).
