Historical Note:
In June of 1936, delegates from the Garden Club of America made a ten-day trip to Paris, France and its environs on the invitation of the President of the Societe des Amateurs des Jardins. During the first five days the group visited Voisin, an estate belonging to the Comte and Comtesse de Fels, modern gardens in Paris, Vaux le Vicomte, the greenhouses of the City of Paris, Museum of the Duc d'Orleans, Courances, and the roof garden of the Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite. The final five days included trips to the Castle of Marais, the home of French inventor, engineer, and scientist Georges Claude at Rueil, the Vilmorin Etablissement, Sceaux, the Palace of Versailles, Gros-Bois, and the Cemetery at Picpus. Highlights of the trip included a visit to Chateau de Grosbois, and Albert Kahn's Japanese garden. They also learned about the innovation and potential of artificial heating and lighting during their visit to Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite.

Scope and Contents:
14 photographic prints of locations in China, taken by the Geologist Bailey Willis in 1903-1904 during a Carnegie institution funded geological expedition through China. Scenes include pagodas at Wutaishan and Tang dynasty Nestorian monuments outside of Xi'an. Documentation is sparse, but the photographs appear to have been sent to Charles L. Freer by Willis in November of 1908. At the time, Freer was considering purchase of a modern replica of the Nestorian Stele. His examination of Willis' original photograph of the stele confirmed that the replica was not worth acquisition.

Biographical / Historical:
Emma Phoebe Waterman was born at Fort Totten in the Dakota Territory (now North Dakota) in 1882. Her father, John Charles Waterman, commissioned in the U.S. Cavalry, had been sent to Fort Totten after General Custer's failure at Little Big Horn. As a teenager, her parents wanted Phoebe to receive a better education, so they sent her to live with her father's family in Michigan so she could attend high school. She continued her education at Vassar, earning a BA (1904) and MA (1906) in mathematics and astronomy. After graduation, she traveled to the Philippines with her father. Upon her return, she was employed as a computer at the Mount Wilson Observatory in Pasadena, California. Working with several highly respected astronomers ignited her passion to follow her dreams of being one as well. In 1911, she applied and was accepted into the doctoral program at University of California – Berkley. She earned a Ph.D. in astronomy in 1913, becoming one of the first of two women to do so.

Shortly after being awarded her Ph.D., Phoebe was appointed as an assistant to the Argentine National Observatory in Cordoba, Argentina. While on the ship to Buenos Aires, she met Otto Haas; they married in February 1914. Phoebe put her astronomy dreams on hold while she supported her husband's business and took care of their family. Despite her commitment to her family, Phoebe never lost her passion for astronomy. Through the suggestions of others, she volunteered with the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO). In 1927, through the assistance of Leon Campbell, recorder for AAVSO at Harvard Observatory, Phoebe purchased a Clark telescope from the Cranis estate. She used this telescope to make 338 observations between 1928 and 1933. In 1953 when AAVSO was evicted from Harvard and lost its funding, Phoebe assisted financially by calculating the five-or ten-day means for southern variable stars.
