Casa Favorita (Pasadena , California)
Scope and Contents:
18 digital images (2019) and 1 file folder.
General:
The half-acre property had a 1924 salmon colored Italian revival style house with three mature live oaks and tapestry hedges when the current owners moved there in 1996. They enclosed the front courtyard with matching stucco walls and wrought iron gates, changed the hardscape from asphalt to decomposed granite, and re-routed the walkway to the front door to showcase a live oak. Forest green is used as an accent color on shutters and large ceramic jars, and salmon-colored azaleas were planted in the foundation beds. Azalea standards, a matching climbing rose, and a collection of pink zonal geraniums in terra cotta pots create a unified palette in the front garden. Formal parterres were built along one side of the house and planted with pastel-colored hybrid tea and floribunda roses and lavender, with a fountain and small stone bench. On the same axis and through a small gate there is another set of four parterres planted with daffodils, delphinium or zinnia in season with a second fountain in the center.

More potted zonal geraniums are displayed on a low wall at one end of the pink stone terrace, succeeded by a patch of lawn and another live oak and sitting area. A 60-foot long vegetable garden for heirloom tomatoes at the back of the property has been replaced by a bocce ball court. A swimming pool was built with concrete planters at the corners for lemon and orange trees in keeping with the Mediterranean style. A salmon colored loggia with comfortable seating has been added along the side of the pool where there is a small waterfall. A shady side of the garden has a large mirror with ornamental banana plants, clipped boxwood, potted plants and two small statues. The owners named their property Casa Favorita honoring Mexican tradition.

Persons associated with the garden include: Hannah Nevin Shaw and Major Roy A. Shaw (former owners, 1923-1958); James Drake MacNeil (former owner, 1958-1968); Phillip Cushing McGrath (former owner, 1968-1996); James R. Shoch and Elena Miller Shoch (owners, 1996- ); Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury (architects, 1924); James J. Yoch (1938-2018) (landscape designer, 1996-1997); Thomas Batcheller Cox (landscape designer, 2007-2012).

The Garden of Linda J. Grauer (Atherton, California)
United States of America -- California -- San Mateo -- Atherton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, maps, and additional information.
General:
The native trees including coast Live oaks and 175-foot tall sequoias on this 2.9 acre property date back to the mid-19th century, planted in the area on the country estates of wealthy San Franciscans. This Tudor-style house was built in 1934 after the 420-acre Selby estate had been subdivided. These gardens were designed in consultation with Katsy Swan over a twelve year period beginning in 1992. Curving lines are evident throughout in the lawns, stone or gravel walkways, and flower borders. The only straight lines are found in the parterres that border the raised beds of the vegetable garden. Color in spring comes from vast plantings of bulbs as well as dogwoods, magnolias, strawberry tree, hydrangeas, viburnum and flowering cherries. Japanese maples add color in the fall. The color palette for the flowering trees, shrubs and perennials is predominantly white with pastels, which contrast with the dark green foliage of the oaks, redwoods, roses, rhododendrons, and camellias as well as with the bright green lawns. There is a patio near the house encircled by cedars and another patio near the tennis court bordered by rose standards. An elaborate garden bench copied from one seen in Nymanns Gardens in Sussex, England is shaded by tulip magnolias with creeping fig topiary reindeer nearby.
Cobblestone paving and wells around the coast oaks prevent soil build up and compaction around the roots of these antique trees. Nearby areas do not have the colorful flowering shrubs and trees found elsewhere on the property but are left unplanted and mulched with oak leaves, eliminating the need for watering that could damage the trees. The owners added a gatehouse, brick gazebo and dual purpose garden and pool house. They attached a greenhouse near the vegetable garden. A rectangular reflecting pool doubles as a lap pool and is the water feature on the property. The entire property is landscaped within a dark green perimeter fence designed by the owner; additional outbuildings include a garage, cottage, and storage building.
Persons associated with the garden include W. Miller (former owner); Kenneth Solari and family (former owners, -1988); Katsy Swan (landscape architect and garden designer, 1992-2004).

The collection focuses on key events, personalities and aircraft designs, and certain subject areas are covered in depth, including the life and career of Igor Sikorsky, the transpolar flights of the 1930s, Soviet aviation in the Spanish Civil War, and the operational history of the Soviet Air Force in World War II.

Biographical / Historical:
Jules and Frank VanDersarl were teenagers from Denver, Colorado, when they began in 1909 to construct a Blériot aircraft. The brothers constructed the aircraft from scratch, including the engine, leading to successful flights with no prior flight instruction in June 1911. Frank VanDersarl went on to work as General Manager and Chief Pilot for Mountain Flyers, giving aviation demonstrations and flights. Frank founded Rocky Mountain Airlines in 1921, ran the Denver Post Airshow for seven years, and was the owner of VanDersarl Aeroplane Motor Products (VAMP) Aircraft Company. Frank also owned the first aviation school in Denver (1930- 1932), was the chief of Curtiss-Wright Denver, and owned and operated the Denver Union Airport until the depression ended his venture. During World War II, Frank worked at the Denver Opportunity School training workers and mechanics for the aviation industry. Jules VanDersarl built and flew gliders and airplanes before World War I and worked on Curtiss JN-4 Jennys and Canucks. He also worked on early aviation engines and rebuilt aircraft, especially working with the engines to improve their performance. Both VanDersarl brothers were inducted into the Colorado Aviation Hall of Fame. The VanDersarl Blériot was successfully restored and flown by Javier Arrango in 2012 and is now on display at the Udvar-Hazy National Air and Space Museum.
