General:
Dresser Mansion was the home of inventor and founder of Dresser Industries, Solomon R. Dresser. The lavish home was built in 1903 on Jackson Avenue in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Dresser hired Louis Kamper, the primary architect of the Michigan Buildings at the Pan American Exposition of 1901, to design his home with the E.N Unruh as the architect. When construction had finished it was estimated that home cost over $1,000,000 to complete. The mansion had twenty-eight rooms, including a ballroom, eleven bedrooms, reception hall, and eight bathrooms. Dresser was so pleased with his "modern palatial residence" that he had a small book entitled, "The Home of Solomon Dresser", filled with photographs and descriptions of the house and its furnishings, which he presented to his close friends. After his death in 1920, the family of Solomon Dresser stayed in the home until 1957, when it was donated and became the Dresser Memorial Presbyterian Home for the Aged. The Dresser Mansion was destroyed by a fire in February 1986.

Persons associated include: Solomon Robert Dresser (former owner, 1903-1920), Louis Kamper (architect, 1902-1903); E.N. Unruh (architect, 1902-1903), Dresser Memorial Presbyterian Home for the Aged (former owner 1957-1986).
33. Dresser Residence, Bradford, PA.
Postcard circa 1915-1930.

Scope and Contents:
Lorenzo Dow Turner took this image while doing research in the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia between 1931 and 1933.
Biographical:
Sam Polite was born around 1844 at St. Helena Island, Beaufort Co., South Carolina. His parents were Sam and Molly Polite. The family was enslaved by the Fripp family, which in 1860 owned thousands of acres of land and 20 plantations in St. Helena Island and other nearby islands. When John Fripp, the Polite family owner's son, got married, his father gave him 30 enslaved persons as a wedding gift. Sam Polite was one of them. When the Civil War came to St. Helena Island in November of 1861, the Fripp family and other planters on the island abandoned their plantations. John Fripp was serving in the Confederate Army, and his wife took her children, Sam and his mother, Molly, to Barnwell, South Carolina. When the end of the war came, Sam Polite and his mother returned to St. Helena Island, where the family reunited. It was only then that they learned that they had been freed from enslavement four years before. After working for another African American man, Sam bought 15 acres of land, which he owned for the rest of his life. Sam Polite was married four times and had two children. At the time that Dr. Turner interviewed him, he manufactured fishing nets for income. Sam Polite died at 100 years old on May 2, 1944, of accidental burns when his clothes caught fire while he smoked.

Type:

Place:
Anderson Garden (Sands Point, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Sands Point
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of publications featuring the garden, and other information.
General:
This garden, designed by Alice Recknagel Ireys, complemented a contemporary house that was situated along Long Island Sound. The house was built on the site of a previous one destroyed by fire and was focused around a Norway maple that had survived the blaze. A creative use of rocks, water, and plantings gave a naturalistic Japanese feel to landscaped areas adjacent to the raised deck/terrace. A stone patio/terrace with ample seating provided a view across what appears to have been a swimming pool to the Sound, with its complement of small boats. Elsewhere, lawns and shade trees evinced a more conventional approach to design.
