Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Noted landscape architect Rose Greely's Washington, D.C., home garden was photographed by Perry Wheeler in the late 1940s. It had been under development since at least the 1920s. The compact (20 feet wide by 65 feet long) Colonial Revival design was in keeping with the scale of Greely's Federal style Georgetown home. Seasonally rotational plantings in borders and beds included spring bulbs, boxwood edging, other evergreens, and gravel paths. A small terrace seating area with chairs was placed at the far end of the garden, while another seating area with a small fountain and pool was adjacent to the house. Garden ornaments included a strawberry pot and a hand-blown glass flagon. Greely's architectural drawings and papers, including those relating to her garden, are housed in Special Collections at the University of Virginia Library, Charlottesville, Virginia.
Persons associated with the garden include Rose Greely (landscape architect and former owner, ca. 1920-1969).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of magazine and newspaper articles featuring the garden, and other information.
General:
The Georgetown garden of Admiral Neill Phillips and his wife Grace Hendrick Phillips (for whom a boxwood cultivar was named) was designed by Perry Wheeler in 1952, with construction and installation moving forward in that year. By April 1953 the garden was featured on the annual Georgetown Garden Tour. Wheeler's design for the small space included a brick wall for privacy, brick paving of most of the garden area, and an unusually shaped pool with twin fountain spouts and a striking sculpture. A variety of shrubs and small trees lined the perimeter, with emphasis on boxwood. Seating was provided throughout the garden. Duplicates of many of the images, the originals of which are in the Perry Wheeler Collection, may be found in the Garden Club of America Collection. The prints originated with Condé Nast Publications and appear to have been associated with a magazine article about the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1952-1953) and Admiral Neill Phillips and Grace Hendrick Phillips (former owners, 1951-1966).

Phillips Garden related holdings consist of 3 folders (28 slides (photographs); 1 film transparency; 7 photographic prints; 7 plans)

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of magazine and newspaper articles featuring the garden, orders and invoices, correspondence, and other information.
General:
The Georgetown garden of Christian A. Herter and Mary Caroline Pratt Herter involved Perry Wheeler for a period of about 10 years. Wheeler's association began in 1954, when he provided additions to an original plan (with plant names) by Cary Millholland Parker, and lasted until at least 1964, when he created a new design for the garden's pool. Typical of Georgetown gardens, the Herter Garden occupied a relatively small space behind its Federal period house, situated cheek by jowl with its neighbors. Privacy was provided by brick walls, a bamboo fence, and shrub and tree plantings. A wide brick walkway led to a small ornamental pool at the back of the garden, while smaller brick walkways provided additional circulation. Azaleas, magnolia, boxwood, spring bulbs, and other plantings amply filled the garden space, while seating was provided on a terrace area near the pool.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1954-1964) and Christian Archibald and Mary Caroline Pratt Herter (former owners, 1943-1980).
Related Materials:
Herter Garden related holdings consist of 3 folders (30 slides (photographs); 2 photographic prints; 1 safety film negative; 10 plans; 3 drawings; 1 blueprint)

General:
Noted landscape architect Rose Greely did the original design for this garden, while Perry Wheeler undertook extensive remodeling beginning in the early 1950s. A typical small Georgetown garden only 48 feet wide, its privacy was assured by a wisteria-topped brick wall, shade trees, and shrubs around its borders. The plan divided the area into several distinct sections, including a shade terrace, living terrace, lawn, lawn terrace, and even a small circular formal vegetable and herb garden. A fountain adjacent to the living terrace provided white noise to mask the sounds of the urban setting. The Wheeler portion of the series includes not only visual images but plans, financial records, and other documentation. Greely's architectural drawings and papers are housed in Special Collections at the University of Virginia Library, Charlottesville, Virginia.
Persons associated with the garden include Rose Greely (landscape architect, circa 1920-1940); Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, circa 1951-1964); Dr. Franklin L. Stroud (former owner, 1976-2008); Paul B. and Laura T. Magnuson (former owners, 1946-1974); Frances Shoemaker (former owner); and Fred W. Jones (former owner).

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).
