Biographical / Historical:
Born in Alliance, Ohio on November 28, 1899, Clyde Stauffer served in the U.S. Navy from November 8, 1917 to July 31, 1919. He later worked as a police officer in Detroit, Michigan. He and his wife were active in the Veterans of Foreign Wars police post in Detroit, serving terms as post commander and president of the Women's Auxiliary, respectively. They traveled extensively throughout the United States to attend VFW meetings, and the album forms a record of their travels during the years 1935-1940. After retirement from the Detroit police force, the Stauffers moved to Oscoda, Michigan, and he worked at Wurtsmith Air Force Base. Later they lived in Tucson, Arizona. Stauffer died in August, 1984.

Album forms a record of vacation travel by Mr. and Mrs. Clyde W. Stauffer, 1935-1940. Their travels were occasioned by Mr. Stauffer's position as commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars police post of Detroit, Michigan, and the need to attend V.F.W. meetings around the country. Mrs. Stauffer was president of the V.F.W. auxiliary. Mr. and Mrs. James H. Stern met the Stauffers in Oscoda, Michigan, and both families eventually relocated in Tucson, Arizona.
Provenance:
This collection was bequeathed by Clyde W. Stauffer in August 1984. Mr. Stern, as administrator of the estate, sent the album to the Museum.

Washington -- Gray Garden

Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Gray Garden (Washington, D.C.)
United States of America -- District of Columbia -- Washington
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets; garden plans; photocopies of articles about the garden; photocopies of Wheeler notes, plant lists, and correspondence relating to the garden; and additional information.
General:
Situated in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., this garden was originally established in the 1930s or 1940s with design work by Rose Greely. In 1958, the property's new owners commissioned a design from Perry H. Wheeler. Structurally the garden has changed little in the past 50 years and still includes many of Wheeler's details: a "thimble" rotating fountain jet, a ram's head mask, a marble "reclining" figure, and four boxwood circles in beds. Wheeler installed hardscapes of different kinds throughout the site's terraces and designed the gardens with the idea of entertaining and low maintenance during the summer months. Boxwood, liriope, mondo grass, bulbs, and other all-season plants were used. The lower, formal terrace features boxwood-edged beds, a fountain and a lawn. The upper terrace includes a swimming pool, greenhouse, garden house, vegetable garden, walkways, and cutting beds. The one-acre size of the garden is unusual in this urban setting and its continuity over the years makes it a site of special interest.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1958-1980) and Rose Greely (landscape architect, 1930s-1940s).
Related Materials:
Gray Garden related holdings consist of 2 folders (61 35 mm. slides (photographs); 4 photographic prints; 5 safety film negatives)
