FW-ASCH-7RR-0850
General:
CDR copy FW-ASCH-7RR-0850 is entitled, "Out My Window;" recorded and narrated by Tony Schwartz, it presents the sounds to be heard outside the front and back windows of Tony's reconverted brownstone house in the middle of Manhattan, on a typical day. His front window faces a residential street while the the back window faces a courtyard, schoolyard and church. An incredible variety of sounds is to be heard, including children, cats, dogs, fog whistle, street repair, construction, a woman hanging out clothes, jets overhead, an air-raid siren (which apparently inspired local dogs to bark and howl), garbage trucks, etc. Among the more interesting sounds were street vendors, a pitchman selling knife sharpeners, kids beating out rhythms on car fenders and mailboxes, a Spanish gospel song, a parade with marching band, a local politician explaining why he should be elected and a street musician playing jazz on a saxophone. Tony Schwartz recorded 11 albums for Folkways, none labelled "Out My Window." However, about half the albums contain sounds along the lines of what is on this tape. Conceivably, some of the sounds from this tape were used on the recordings, although I couldn't readily confirm that. Perhaps this tape was submitted to Folkways as a prototype for an additional album which wasn't produced.

FW-ASCH-7RR-0942
General:
CDR copy Tapes -0940 and -0941feature the singing of George Vinton Graham, of San Jose, CA -0938. They were probably both recorded on Dec. 3, 1938. Both were recorded by Sydney Robertson Cowell. Mr. Graham sings traditional ballads, e.g., Barbara Allen, and other traditional songs, plus a few old popular songs. He accompanies himself on guitar. FW-ASCH-7RR-0938 through FW-ASCH-7RR-0941 all feature Mr. Graham. Tape Box for -0940 says UC-3, -0941 says UC-4 and -0942 says UC-5. Tape -0942 features Warde and Pat Ford of Shasta Valley, who had come to California from Wisconsin, to work on the Shasta Dam. They were recorded on various dates in 1938 and 1939; -0942 was recorded on 12/26/1938. These three tapes, and the other related tapes, consist of dubs of 78's, many or all of which are in the possession of the CFCH Archives in the form of aluminum discs. In addition, the same recordings are at the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, where they've been incorporated into the Library's American Memory Project, available to the public on the Center's website, under the title of "California Gold". Also on the website (see below) is a lot of additional information about these recordings and the performers, as well as transcriptions of the lyrics of many of the songs. From 1938 - 1940, Sydney Robertson Cowell, under the auspices of both the WPA (of President Roosevelt's New Deal) and the University of California - Berkeley, headed a project called the WPA Northern California Folk Music Project of which these recordings are a part. Thirty-five hours of music, in twelve languages, were recorded. For additional information about the Project as a whole and the songs on this and the related tapes (FW-ASCH-7RR-0938 through -0947, among others, go to the Library of Congress website: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/afccchtml/cowhome.html. See other sheets for listing of songs and their duration.

Arlington -- Barbara's Garden

Collection Creator:
Smithsonian Gardens  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Barbara's Garden (Arlington, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Arlington County
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes an information sheet, a features plan, a slide plan, a slide list and a plant list.
General:
Located in the suburbs of the Washington, D.C. metro area in Virginia, the brick rambler on the property dates to the 1950s. The current owner re-designed the garden in 1998 and the backyard garden redesigned in 2005 by the owner. Barbara's garden achieves the contemporary urban ideal of low-maintenance and functional beauty.
The house is situated at the top of a small hill with a sloping lawn which leads down to the sidewalk and street. The not-so-secret terraced front garden is practically maintenance-free and a stone retaining wall gives the front garden structure. A large crepe myrtle and two dogwoods anchor the front garden along with cherry laurel, azaleas and ornamental grasses with perennials for seasonal color. The backyard garden suits the owner who wants a serene beautiful space for entertaining and outdoor dining plus space for her small dog.
Garden features include a large deck for dining, a small lawn area with a garden border planted with trees and perennials, a small shed and an enclosed vegetable and herb garden.
Related Materials:
Barbara's Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (16 digital images)

Archival materials
Place:
Vollum Garden (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and two narrative descriptions of the garden and its sculpture, one of them by the owner. The garden is noted for its sensitive design, which integrates rich plantings, water features, and sculpture into the natural setting, while reflecting the owner's love of family (many plants were contributed by family members), dogs, and the outdoor world.
General:
Originally designed by landscape architect Lawrence Underhill in the 1950s, this is a true four-season garden. The perimeter of the garden is outlined by Douglas fir, red cedar, and Pinus contorta, while Magnolia macrophyllum, dwarf 'Ever Red' Japanese lace leaf maples, enkianthus, and Viburnum davidii fill the interior. Running water and a gentle pond attract birds and frogs, while the owner's collection of sculpture enhances the garden's design and plantings. Rhododendron, tulips, iris, lilies of the valley, peonies, roses, and poppies add color and fragrance in season, as do the Japanese maples and other flowering trees and shrubs. Groundcover plants such as Pachysandra terminalis provide a green carpet throughout.
The garden received the Oregon Gardeners' Association of Nurserymen first place award for landscape, and, in 1976-1977, the American Institute of Landscape Architects' first place award.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Lawrence Underhill (landscape architect, 1955 to date); Riemers and Jollivet (contractors); and Priscilla Senior (head gardener).
