American Social Dance

Archival materials
Introduction:
The United States is blessed with a diversity of community dance traditions and new dance forms that have developed from interactions between communities. This exciting American mix has had a profound impact on the popular cultures of nations across the world. The dance program at the 1993 Festival explored social dancing traditions in five communities - an Appalachian community in southwest Virginia, Iroquois communities in upstate New York, and African American, Bolivian, and Cambodian American communities of Washington, D.C.

Tradition-bearers taught dances to Festival visitors in workshops, participated in conversations on a variety of themes, and demonstrated skills, repertoires, and performance styles from their communities. In each of these communities, dance is centrally important in the expression of cultural identity. Dancing brings members of a community together and strengthens cohesiveness by emphasizing shared ethical and aesthetic values. Performing a common vocabulary of movement, in time to a shared repertoire of music, one participates in a culture; Festival audiences became active participants during this program and had the opportunity in so doing to experience others' cultures.

Vivien Ta-Ying Chen was Curator and Marianne Hicks and Arlene Reiniger were Program Coordinators. Program Advisors included LeeEllen Friedland, Joan Frosch-Schroder, Robert Frye, Gonzalo Gutierrez, Glenn Hinson, Anthony Hovington, Adrienne Kaeppler, Martin Koenig, Ethel Raim, Denise Richards, Sally Sommer, Jane Woodside, and Vicki Risner Wulff.

American Social Dance was made possible with the support of the recording industries Music Performance Trust Funds.

Kids' Stuff

Archival materials
Introduction:
Nowhere is the essence of childhood revealed more clearly than in play. A vivacious and expressive play culture was still being created and shared by children within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in 1993, despite TV, Nintendo, other toys and entertainment manufactured by adults, and in the face of ever more difficult realities of growing up in the city. The 1993 Festival highlighted some of those traditions of children's play and performance. The Festival presented forms inviting participation by the whole group such as clapping games, ring plays, call-and-response singing, and double dutch. Also presented were genres that were consciously created for an audience, such as rhythmic bucket brigades. The 1993 Kids' Stuff program encouraged participation and dialogue as well as demonstration and observation. Festival audiences, young and old, were invited to join in this celebration of children's play and performance.

Diana Baird N'Diaye served as Curator, and Marjorie Hunt as Program Coordinator. Program Advisors included Betty Belanus, Paddy Bowman, Camila Bryce-Laporte, Peg Koetsch, Phyllis May-Machunda, Kate Rinzler, Dorothy Walker, and Steve Zeitlin.

United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes work sheets, copies of a talk by W. R. McNabb on Knoxville gardens, photocopies of correspondence regarding Rostrevor and other Knoxville gardens, copies of the "routine of work" for Rostrevor, and other information.
General:
Rostrevor was the garden of Mr. and Mrs. William C. Ross; its elements were installed primarily between 1911 and 1928. In the latter year the Rosses added a formal garden largely of their own design, said to be based on one they had admired at the Hill School in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Terraces and a pergola provided the framework for plantings in bloom from March until November. The 12-acre site also included a rock garden made by Paul Adams, extensive lawns bordered by flowering shrubs, elms for shade, and a swimming pool. Most of the images are copies of originals commissioned about 1935 by Mrs. Ross.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. William C. Ross (former owners, 1911-1968); Helen R. McNabb (former owner, 1968-1972); Paul Adams (plantsman); and Barber & McMurry (architects, ca. 1911-1928).

General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

General:
The Brandon tract was patented by James Martin, a son of Sir Richard Martin, of England, who in 1616 was granted ten shares of land by the Virginia Company. The tract was named after the town of Brandon in Suffolk, England. In 1909, the landscape consisted of informal flower beds and tall trees--many of which were previously imported from the West Indies. A box hedge was at a height of four feet near the house on the north side. Box also bordered the garden walks, interlined with chains of cowslips and daffodils. Broad, grassy walks were located between lilac and althea hedges. By 1934, the gardens showed some rectangular and square divisions with paths bordered by old box. In the 1960s, Brandon Farm consisted of 4,500 acres, of which 1,500 was under cultivation. Twelve families lived on the property during this time, with 15 men employed.
Persons associated with the property include: John Martin (owner of land grant, 1616); John Sadler, Richard Quiney, and William Barber (former owners, 1637); Benjamin Harrison, II. (former owner, 1712); Nathaniel Harrison (former owner, 1720); Robert Williams Daniel (former owner, 1926);Thomas Jefferson (designer of additions and center for house, ca. 1765); and Arthur Shurcliff (landscape architect).
