The folder includes worksheets, e-mail correspondence relating to the identification of the garden, and additional images of the garden site.
Located on the roof of the Hospital for Special Surgery on East 70th Street, this was the private garden of the hospital's administrator, T. Gordon Young, who lived at the hospital with his family from 1954 to 1977. It featured a rock garden with an Asian sculpture and an outdoor seating area. The garden overlooked the East River southward to the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge) and what is now the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Following Young's departure from the hospital the garden was no longer maintained. Several individuals contributed to the identification of this garden including Nora Lockshin, Michael D. Lockshin, M.D.; David B. Levine, M.D.; and Brad Hess.
Young Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (12 safety film negatives; 13 photographic prints)

This series includes material relating to the appointment and career of Michael E. Guest, openly gay United States Ambassador to Romania, 2001-2004 during the George H. Bush presidential administration. He was dean of the Foreign Services Institute, 2004-2007 until the time he resigned from the State Department over the treatment of LGBT persons and same-sex couples. This series includes many of the items associated with his appointment, invitations, remarks, Guest''s diplomatic passport and the accompanying Romanian identify card issued to his husband Alexander Nevarez, issued because the State Department did not recognize Nevarez as Guest's husband.
