Summary:
The Ken Druse Garden Photography Collection contains approximately 45,000 film transparency and 35mm slide images, dating from 1978 to 2005, of gardens, garden features, and flora photographed by garden writer and photographer Ken Druse. The photographic images document numerous private and public gardens throughout the United States and a few in Canada. Many have appeared in Druse's own books and articles as well as those by other writers. Approximately half of the collection is arranged according to specific garden, the other half by garden feature. A small portion of the collection consists of slide lectures given by Druse. Some images are identified with general captions and dates. Images documenting specific gardens are sometimes accompanied by handwritten notes, garden descriptions, and articles. Annotations appearing on certain images indicate the publication in which they appeared. The collection includes 'outtakes' or bracketed images that give insight into Druse's photo shooting process.
Biographical Note:

He received the Sarah Chapman Francis Medal for Literary Achievement from the Garden Club of America in 2004 for his garden writing. He highlights the work of numerous gardeners, garden designers, and horticulture experts on his website and podcast.

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Crone Garden (Summit, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Union County -- Summit
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and other information.
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).
Related Materials:
Crone Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (10 safety film negatives; 3 photographic prints; 2 film transparencies)
