Historical Note:
On January 16th, 1937, one hundred and forty-seven members of The Garden Club of America (GCA) arrived at the United States-Mexico border for a nineteen day tour of various sites in Mexico. The trip was largely organized by Mrs. Walter Douglas, but there were many who contributed to the trip's itinerary. Included in the list of hosts were the wife of the Minister of Foreign Relations, members of the Garden Club of Mexico, Professor P. Khankhoje from the Plant Bureau of Mexico, and politicians such as the governor of the Federal District, Cosme Hinjosa.

The extensive trip through Mexico covered a vast amount of territory, landscapes, and destinations. The group visited the towns and cities of Guaymas, Mazatlan, Guadalajara, Uruapan, Patzcuaro, Mexico City, Toluca, Puebla, Xochimilco, and Queretaro. As evidenced by images from the trip, each city offered an assortment of attractions including natural landscapes, vibrant cultural encounters, murals, historical landmarks, and for some, even witnessing a bullfight. The group also visited gardens including The Botanical Garden in Uruapan; Chapultepec Castle; Casa Alvarado; the Churubusco Monastery; the Carmelite Church, and the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco. The trip ended for southwestern GCA members in Laredo, Texas; for others, it ended in St. Louis where that chapter's garden club welcomed its fellow members for an evening of conversation and refreshments.
