Sarasota -- Casa del Carnevale

Provenance:

Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Casa del Carnevale (Sarasota, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Sarasota County -- Sarasota
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 36 digital images. The folder includes worksheets and historic information about land development in the Florida Keys.
General:
The Italianate Revival house built in 1937 has been expanded by the current owners who are descended from the original owners, on a property of approximately one acre. Many specimen plants that were collected between 1950 and 1990 have been retained and rearranged to accommodate expansions to the house. With new plantings added the gardens emphasize the colors, specimen variety and textures in subtropical trees, shrubs, vines and flowering plants. There are eleven different varieties of palms, including the mature royal palms that tower over the street front of the property, and shorter pygmy date palms used as foundation plants under balconies. Bromeliads grow in enormous urns on either side of the original front door. Flowering vines that add color year round include Mexican flame vine, bougainvillea, stephanotis, Confederate jasmine and angel's trumpet. Dense growth for a jungle-like effect is encouraged and minimizes water usage.
The property was purchased from the John Ringling Estates, and references to the involvement of family members in the circus and carnivals is found in garden features. A mobile sculpture "Circus" by Frederick Prescott is sited outside the dining room window. A mosaic on the wall of one of the additions depicts Ringling Brothers clown Emmet Kelly and family member, plant collector, puppeteer and previous owner Marion McKennon. Her husband Joseph McKennon initiated the grassroots campaign Save Our Bays to prevent dredging to create more building sites in the Florida Keys. A park and bird sanctuary was established on some of the new ground rather than housing. In 1991 this property was designated a historic landmark by the City of Sarasota.
Persons associated with the garden include John Ringling and Owen Burns of John Ringling Estates (former owners 1917-1927); Mr. and Mrs. Charles Leigh (former owners, 1927-1969); Mr. and Mrs. Joseph McKennon (former owners, 1969-2002); Dwayne Henderson (former owner, 2002-2003); Paul Bergman (builder, 1936-1937); Wm. Thorning Little (architect for renovation and additions, 2004-2007 and 2003-2008); Daniel Patrick Ball (builder, 2003-2008); Michael L. Gilkey, Jr. (landscape architect, 2005-2007); Brian K. Desormier (landscape installation and maintenance (2005- ); Frederick Prescott (sculptor); Dimitar Kasabov (mosaic artist).

Historical note:
The Festival of American Folklife, held annually since 1967 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was renamed the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in 1998.

The 1980 Festival of American Folklife was produced by the Smithsonian Office of Folklife Programs and cosponsored by the National Park Service.

For more information, see Smithsonian Folklife Festival records.
Introduction:
The 1980 Festival was the third to use "community" as its over-arching theme, and the last to be held in October. As with recent Festivals, it was held on a site on the National Mall later to be occupied by the National Museum of African American History and Culture, between 14th and 15th Streets and between Constitution Avenue and Madison Drive (see site plan). It was also the first to be organized by the newly-established Office of Folklife Programs (1980-1992), successor to the former Folklife Program of the Office of American and Folklife Studies (1977-1980). The indoor programming in several museums that had characterized the 1977-1979 Festivals was discontinued and all activities were held outdoors.

When families and community groups gather to celebrate or to mourn, Festival Director Ralph Rinzler observed in the program book, they depend on traditional flavors, sounds, dances, and prayers to reinforce their sense of belonging, their group strength and cultural identity. At the annual Folklife Festival, the Smithsonian acknowledged the power of these traditions, which recall the value that Americans continue to place on being members of groups - familial, occupational, ethnic, regional, and religious. Festival organizers considered this recognition a step in the process of cultural conservation, in the belief that cultural variety, on a national and on a global scale, makes life itself more rewarding. Community and identity thus served as the twin poles around which Festival programs were organized.

The 1980 Festival (October 8-13) included a Caribbean Carnival with steel band and calypso competitions; Finnish Americans from northern Minnesota demonstrating a traditional "whip-sled" for children and such crafts as making Christmas tree ornaments from wood shavings; Southern carpenters building a traditional "dog trot" house; Southeast Asians demonstrating weaving, embroidery, stone carving, calligraphy; among others. The Festival asserted that rootedness is a tangible part of the fascination with history, our own or our country's or that of some distant place. This was seen as a part of life that everyone should value, and so the Festival not only celebrated customs and ways of doing things, but evoked the pride of being someone from somewhere. The 1980 Program Book provided information on each of the programs.

The 1980 Festival was again co-presented by the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Music Performance Trust Funds. It was organized by the Office of Folklife Programs.

Introduction:
The 1979 Folklife Festival continued to take community as its theme, as had been announced in 1978. The Festival celebrated the creative genius of many cultural groups - some had been on American soil only for months, others for millenia. The point of the Smithsonian festivals and the museums' displays of diversity struck home to the people who came to the museums and reached out for reaffirmation of identity. People feared the loss of identity in the sense of anomie that came with being a cipher, a numeral, a set of digits, organizers believed; they feared big government, big business, megastates that might rule the world. Coupled with the fear of homogenization was the fear of the loss of one's own soul. One way to strengthen our sense of identity and to demonstrate our essential humanity, the Festival asserted, was the reaffirmation of the differences among us, the persistence of our traditions at the ground roots of life, a countercurrent for survival.

In 1979 the Festival welcomed the newly-arrived ethnic community of Vietnamese, who had brought with them rich folklife traditions. From the West Indies came immigrants who enliven our cities with the folk theatrical spectacle of Carnival. Native Americans from several tribal groups shared their knowledge of ways in which their housing has been adapted to local environmental conditions.The International Year of the Child was celebrated at the Festival in the program book cover and articles, and in the living presentations of children's folklife in the Children's Area, where Lumbee Indian children re-created a Field Day celebration, and several other children's communities enacted Halloween traditions. Occupational communities were represented by D.C. firefighters, taxicab drivers, and stonecarvers from the National Cathedral. Other communities represented, which had formed around particular interests or institutions, were a medicine show, mom-and-pop neighborhood stores, street criers, and CB radio clubs.

As with the two preceding years, the 1979 Festival (October 3-8) was held on a site on the National Mall later to be occupied by the National Museum of African American History and Culture, between 14th and 15th Streets and between Constitution Avenue and Madison Drive (see site plan). Indoor activities including a symposium focused on folk medicine took place in the National Museum of History and Technology, in the days preceding the outdoor Festival (September 27-30). The 1979 Program Book provided information on each of the programs.

The 1979 Festival was again co-presented by the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Music Performance Trust Funds. It was organized by the Folklife Program within the Office of American and Folklife Studies.

circa 1887-1948
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Camping forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This material consists primarily of printed advertisements, catalogues, brochures, cooking recipes, price lists and scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery from manufacturers and dealers of camping equipment.

The companies tended to manufacture products such as trailer awnings, duffle bags, boots, axes, hunting knives, ropes, out bags, camp stoves, lamps, sleeping bags, hunting apparel, cooking utensils, knapsacks, blankets and tents. Tents appear to be the main product for a number of these companies. The tents were manufactured for circuses, stables, concessions, carnivals, fairs, travelers and offices. Other products not related to camping include pre-fabricated houses and hammocks.

A smaller amount of material consists primarily of brochures, scattered correspondence, instructions and pamphlets from camps and camping sites. The camps were mostly for youth but some adult and gender oriented camps are among these materials. Related books include Activities for Summer Camp published in 1948 by the Arts Cooperative Service, Inc. and Bits of Camp Life by C. W. Reed and Louis Harlow dedicated to the Grand Army of the Republic by the artists. This is mostly visual images of the war and was published in 1888. The bulk of the material is early twentieth century.
Arrangement:
Materials are organized alphabetically by name of company. There is one folder of material on camps. There is also a folder of camp instructions and aid. The remainder of the material is five folders of related publications.

Missing Title

Series 1: Business Ephemera

Series 2: Other Collection Divisions

Series 3: Isadore Warshaw Personal Papers

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Camping is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.
Restrictions:
Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
Rights:
Collection items available for reproduction, but the Archives Center makes no guarantees concerning copyright restrictions. Other intellectual property rights may apply. Archives Center cost-recovery and use fees may apply when requesting reproductions.
