Descriptive Entry:
The administration of the United States National Museum required curators to submit regular reports on the activities of the departments, divisions, and sections. Prior to about 1900 these reports were often made monthly and semiannually as well as annually. The reports were traditionally submitted to the Director of the National Museum to be used in preparing the published Annual Report of the United States National Museum. The individual reports, however, were not reproduced in their entirety in the published Annual Report and generally contain more information than is to be found in the published version.

Reports were stored by the Office of Correspondence and Reports (later known as the Office of Correspondence and Documents), and then by the Office of the Registrar.

Includes reports submitted to the Director of the United States National Museum by curators and administrators.

General:
Fox Hollow was once approximately ten acres of undeveloped pastureland with a 200 year old southern red oak and an upward incline toward a wooded ravine. It was transformed into a garden with a collection of plants supporting pollinators and wildlife. After purchase in 1991 the owners planted 50 trees near the public road for privacy, including loblolly pine, magnolia, beech, cedar, dawn redwood, hickory, cypress, oaks, tulip poplar, ash, and several sugar maples transplanted from a family farm in Virginia. Their Louisiana Acadian style house was built by 1997 and is now surrounded by formal gardens with iron and lead decorative features from former family farms and gardens; these include a cottage garden, a white garden, and a Louisiana style courtyard with a three tiered iron fountain in the center. The walkways and edgings of the beds are brick while the uneven pickets of the wooden fences are in the Louisiana style. The bordering flower beds include wintergreen boxwood hedges, wax myrtle, pale pink camellias, aspidistra, and monkey grass; large clay pots in the courtyard hold annuals like dianthus, pansies and snapdragons in fall and winter and begonias in spring and summer.
The next areas to be planted were a large lawn, multi-level woodland garden, and a cutting garden. The lawn is edged with hundreds of passalong daffodils and trees that include flowering cherry, apricot, plum, magnolias, gingko, persimmon, maples, and tupelo. The one acre woodland garden was once an eroded forest floor of pine needles, leaves, beauty berry, privet, honeysuckle and poison ivy. Gravel paths, rugged stone creek beds and plantings of passalongs or end-of-season purchased plants have stopped erosion in the ravines. On a ridge about half way down the 20 foot drop of the ravine they have created a seating area with a fire pit surrounded by trees, flowering evergreen bushes, ferns, grasses, hostas, hydrangeas, and azaleas. Paths through the ravine are shaded by trees that were planted and enlivened by the colors of bulbs, perennials, seasonal plantings and flowering shrubs.
The cutting garden is set on low mounds that look down on the house. Flowering trees and bushes include kousa dogwood, snowball viburnum, magnolia, spirea, and butterfly bushes. In the flower beds there are old fashioned butterfly weed, iris, varieties of rudbeckias, phlox, daisies, and coreopsis as well as agapanthus, anemones, larkspur, zinnias, cosmos and chartreuse potato vines, daylilies and coleus. The mild climate means that cutting materials can be grown for three seasons, and trees add texture, height and color year round.
Persons associated with the garden include: Al Jones (architect, 1991-1997); Overton Moore (landscape architect, 1996-1998); and Robert F. Poore (landscape architect, 2010).
