Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, landscape designs, nursery invoices with plant names, correspondence, and other information.
General:
Located in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, the McGuire Garden was designed by Perry Wheeler in 1957 and was fully established by the time he photographed it in the spring of 1959. Its large flagstone, cast stone, and Belgian paver terrace was especially striking when viewed from above, highlighting its interlocking circle and semi-circle pattern. A central fountain provided a focal point, while the perimeter of the space featured a variety of trees and shrubs including osmanthus, boxwood, azalea, holly, and magnolia. Small beds were planted with bulbs for the spring and presumably featured changing seasonal splashes of color. Ample seating for outdoor entertaining was also provided. A 1965 letter from Mrs. McGuire to Wheeler regarding a bulb purchase shows that Wheeler maintained an ongoing relationship with this client.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1957-1965) and Mr. and Mrs. E. Perkins McGuire (former owners, ca. 1957-1965).

Summary:
The Maida Babson Adams American Garden Collection documents the work of Molly Adams, a free-lance garden photographer who photographed hundreds of private and public gardens, many of them in the mid-Atlantic region, from the late 1950s through the mid-1990s. It includes slides, photographic prints, negatives and transparencies. A significant number of images document the work of landscape designers Nelva M. Weber, Alice Recknagel Ireys, and Friede Stege. Roughly 50 gardens do not have an identified location. Some images have captions and other information written on them.
Scope and Contents:
The Maida Babson Adams American Gardens Collection includes a total of 7,606 images documenting close to 400 gardens photographed by Molly Adams from the 1950s to the 1990s. Although most images document gardens in New Jersey, the collection also includes gardens in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania. While the vast majority of gardens in the collection are private, there are also some public gardens and venues like the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in New Jersey, the International Flower Show in New York City, and the White House in Washington, D.C. A number of gardens were photographed during organized garden or horticultural tours or annual meetings of the Garden Club of America. A significant number of images document the work of landscape designers Alice Ireys, Nelva Weber, and Friede Stege. Approximately 85 gardens in the collection are unidentified as to their location and/or client. Relatively few images are captioned or dated; Adams often labeled a film envelope or back of a photograph or contact sheet with just a client surname and the designer (if it was Ireys, Weber, or Stege). In some cases, additional information about a garden's location or owner's full name was gleaned from the finding aids for the Alice Recknagel Ireys Papers or the Nelva Weber Papers. Some images were accompanied by clippings from newspapers or magazines that featured one or more related images by Adams; most of these clippings date from the 1950s and 1960s. There is also a file of general clippings of Adams' work; many of these do not identify the garden that is shown.

Most of the images are black and white, though there are a number taken in color. Adams' contact sheets and photo envelopes were sometimes marked with cropping marks or photo developing notes respectively.
Biographical / Historical:
Molly (Maida Babson) Adams (1918 - 2003) had a 40+ year career as a nationally recognized free-lance garden and wildlife photographer and conservationist. Her images were published under the name "Molly Adams." Adams was born in Orange, New Jersey and lived over fifty years in Mendham Township, New Jersey. As a teenager she became interested in photography; she later attended the New York Institute of Photography and became a member of the New York Camera Club.

Her photographs were featured in numerous newspapers and magazines including the "New York Times," "New York Herald Tribune," "House Beautiful," "Horticulture," "Home Garden," and "Audubon." During the Kennedy administration, she photographed the White House Rose Garden; these photographs were later published in "Flower Grower."

Adams provided hundreds of photographs for "How to Plan and Plant Your Own Property" (1967) by landscape architect Alice Recknagel Ireys and "How to Plan Your Own Home Landscape" (1976) by landscape designer Nelva M. Weber. Her images were also published in books including "The Reader's Digest Practical Guide to Home Landscaping," and "The Complete Illustrated Book of Garden Magic." Adams also occasionally wrote garden-themed articles. A longtime member in the Somerset Hills (NJ) Garden Club, which is part of the Garden Club of America, Adams once served as the latter's official photographer.

In the 1960's Adams' photographs drew attention to conservation issues related to the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in northwestern New Jersey. These widely publicized photographs rallied public support against the proposed destruction of the Great Swamp for the construction of an airport. Adams was also active as a member of the Mendham Township Environmental Commission and the North Jersey Conservation Foundation. In the 1980's she was awarded the Buckley Medal of Merit for Horticultural Achievement by the Garden Club of America for her photographs used in the postcard campaign "Save Our Vanishing Wild Flowers."

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a magazine clipping, and other information.
General:
Spring Brook House was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wellington B. Hay. Noted especially for its extensive plantings of iris, the design of its gardens involved the work of both Fletcher Steele and Nelva M. Weber. In 1948 Steele designed expansive garden borders adjacent to the property's planting of strawberries and vegetables. Nelva M. Weber's later contribution involved a more intimate brick-walled garden area and featured a variety of perennials and shrubs. The property's rural setting provided views to the surrounding hills, while clipped linden trees highlighted the transition from the home to garden areas.
Persons associated with the garden include Fletcher Steele (landscape architect, 1948); Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1957); and Mr. and Mrs. Wellington B. Hay (former owners, ca. 1945-1976).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and copies of a magazine article about the garden.
General:
Nelva M. Weber designed the striking terrace garden for this home around 1963-64. The color scheme of white and green reflected the wishes of the property owners, who had painted their red brick house white upon acquiring it in the early 1960s. White was used throughout the design in plant material (azaleas, petunias, clematis), furniture, and garden accents, as well as in an all-white pool house. Green foliage in such plants as Ilex japonica and ivy offset the white, while a small perennial border masking a parking area provided a splash of color (albeit punctuated with white). Outdoor lighting combined with the white color scheme made the site particularly striking at night.
Persons associated with the garden include: Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1963-1966) and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Schuyler Williams (former owners, ca. 1963-1970).

General:
This was the home and garden of Lester A. and Inez Persy Crone, and was situated on a densely wooded site. Stone walls set off flowering borders of spring bulbs, while rhododendron and other shrubs provided a backdrop leading to the woods. Trees, however, were interspersed throughout the grounds, and rustic walkways wound amongst them, flanked by naturalistic plantings. A small lawn area provided a spot for outdoor seating. Despite the property's suburban location, the overall feel of the garden was of a much more rural and rustic site.
Persons associated with the garden include Lester A. Crone and Inez Persy Crone (former owners, ca. 1940-1970).

General:
Little is known about this garden at the home of Mrs. J. Z. Millar, photographed by Molly Adams during its peak springtime bloom. Borders and beds featured daffodils and tulips and were bordered with boxwood. Flowering trees, evergreens, and a lawn were accented by a cast iron bench and a birdbath. A charming note is added to several shots by the inclusion of a little girl (probably Mrs. Millar's granddaughter) and her toy stuffed tiger.
Persons associated with the garden include Mrs. J. Z. Millar (former owner, ca. 1960-1980).

General:
Molly Adams credits Betsy Park as the sculptor of the sundial. Its inscription reads "I Wish Thee As Much Pleasure In The Reading As I Have Had In The Writing," a quote attributed to English poet Francis Quarles.
It is possible that this is the sundial in Anne's Garden located on the grounds of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Gladstone, New Jersey. According to the May 20, 1971 issue of Bernardsville News, the sundial was given by Betsy Park's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Borman, in memory of their son-in-law Robert Wesley Schooley, Jr. who passed away in 1968. The sundial in Anne's Garden was dedicated in 1971.
