Biographical/Historical note:
George Eaton Simpson (1904-1998) was an anthropologist whose focus was the various social aspects of Caribbean religions. He wrote over 60 articles and books, and taught sociology and anthropology at Oberlin College from 1947-1971.

Born in Knoxville, Iowa, Simpson received his B.S. from Coe College in 1926, his M.A. from the University of Missouri in 1927, and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1934. In 1947 he began teaching at Oberlin College in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. In addition to teaching classes, Simpson served on numerous committees and as department chair.

Simpson conducted fieldwork in the Caribbean, specifically Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad, and Nigeria. He focused primarily on Caribbean religions such as Vodun in Haiti, Rastafarianism in Jamaica, and the Spiritual Baptists in Trinidad. His fieldwork has been documented in numerous articles and books, including "The Vodun Service in Northern Haiti", "The Shango Cult in Nigeria and Trinidad", and Black Religions in the New World. He occasionally collaborated on articles with fellow anthropologists Joseph G. Moore and J. Milton Yinger. He also served as a visiting professor at several leading universities.

He was the recipient of numerous honors and awards including the Wellcome Medal for Anthropological Research, the Anisfield-Wolf Award in Race Relations (with J. Milton Yinger), Doctor of Humane Letters – Oberlin College, and Doctor of Humane Letters – Coe College.

The George Eaton Simpson Film Study of Plaisance, Haiti, 1937, accession No. 92.12.1 in the Smithsonian Institution Human Film Studies Archives contains silent black and white film footage of Plaisance, Haiti shot by Simpson and his colleagues. The footage contains events also depicted in the photograph collection including work coumbites, marketplace scenes, a wedding ceremony, a funeral, drumming and dancing at a social gathering, and a dancing demonstration. Included in this accession are 21 audiotapes recorded by Simpson and Joseph G. Moore during their fieldwork in Jamaica and Trinidad.

The Joseph G. Moore Collection: Jamaican Revival and Kumina, 1957-1958, accession No. 92.1.1 in the Smithsonian Institution Human Film Studies Archives contains related material to Simpson's study of Jamaican Revival Zion and Kumina. The collection contains film footage of Morant Bay and West Kingston, Jamaica shot in 1957. The footage was originally intended for the "Odyssey" program or possibly a short feature. Some of the it ended up being featured on the CBS program "Lamp Unto My Feet" which also includes interviews with Joseph G. Moore and George Eaton Simpson. There is over 10 hours of footage, and in 1992 Simpson, Smithsonian Institution Human Film Studies Archives Director John Homiak, and research associate Ken Bilby recorded approximately 10 hours of commentary about the footage. This collection also contains audio recordings made in 1993 of a discussion between Simpson, Homiak, and Bilby concerning the relation of Jamaican Revival with Rastafari.

Sound recordings by Simpson held in the Ralph Rinzler Folklife Archives and Collections in the Folkways Records Collection and the Moses and Frances Asch Collection.

Scope and Contents:

Varying Form:
Sampson Beasley Garden.
General:
Ample rainfall and favorable growing conditions are evident in the lush 5 to 7-acre garden that features naturalistic plantings of shrubs, perennials and annuals that blend into the woodlands of native Pacific Madrone and cedar trees. There are many garden rooms with distinctive and whimsical features, including a frog grotto, a walkway made of the bottoms of recycled glass bottles, a blue garden of shiny orbs, and a more conventional walkway lined with peonies, beds with late-blooming red perennials, a rose and yew garden, fish pond, and a shade garden planted in hostas, ferns and hydrangeas. Native rocks are placed strategically in garden beds and used in an alpine rock wall. When the garden was created with landscape designer Michael Schultz plants of varying shapes were selected to create complex visual patterns, and located where the growing conditions would be favorable to the species.
Landscape designer Michael Schultz creates gardens that feature varying textures and colors of plant material, and innovative uses of hardscape elements.
Persons associated with the garden include Dave Green (previous owner, 1970-1980); Michael Schultz (landscape designer); Cynthia Woodyard (landscape designer).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a copy of an original plan.
General:
A 28-foot drop within this one-third acre urban property, the installation of a swimming pool and fish pond water features, and the desire to preserve existing trees and shrubs were design challenges when the owners began restoration work in 1998. It took two years to complete the landscape comprised of three terraces down the hillside behind the house with connecting steps of Texas stone dug on site. The 1929 house with 1970's revisions is set back from public view but has views of the gardens from every room. Two magnolia trees planted in 1956 were preserved, and other trees and shrubs were tried out in the hot, dry climate and moved or replaced as necessary.
Grounds that were overgrown are now lush, with azaleas around the dining terrace that overlooks the pools and hostas, oak leaf hydrangeas, jasmine and caladiums in the shaded garden.The fish pond next to the swimming pool is shaded and has a small water garden. An iron fence at the front property line was replaced with a brick fence that is covered with ivy and planted with roses, salvia, hydrangeas and an ornate wrought iron bench facing the crushed stone courtyard. A large pergola on painted cedar trunks was built outside the bay windows at the back of the house. Native perennials have replaced annuals, drip irrigation conserves water, and the gardens are filled with aromas, pollinators, birds and the sounds from rustling trees and fountains.
The present house was built in 1929. Edward and Betty Marcus purchased the home from its original owners after moving to Texas in 1946 in order for Edward to take his brother Stanley's previous job as a general merchandise manager in the family owned business, Neiman Marcus. Landscape Architects Marie and Arthur Berger, who designed the grounds of the DeGolyer Estate at White Rock Lake and other residential projects, were likely consulted on the Marcus' garden during the 1940s and 1950s. The two Magnolia trees still preserved in the garden were planted on the grounds in 1956 in honor of the birth of Stanley Marcus' twin children.
Persons associated with the garden include: Roger and Pinta Harris (former owners, 1929-1946); Edward and Betty Marcus (former owners, 1946-1984); Jerrie Marcus Smith (former owner, 1984-1990); Dr. and Mrs. John Minna (former owners, 1990-1998); Henry Bowers (Hal) Thomson (1882-1974) (architect, 1929); Enslie O. (Bud) Oglesby, Jr. (architect, 1972).
