Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.

Summary:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 3,100 photographic images of private and public gardens throughout the United States, as well as some from foreign countries, dating from 1899 to 1963. Many of these images, generated for Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), were used to illustrate trade catalogs published by the firm as well as journal and newspaper articles. The collection also contains color records that were used as reference aids during the printing process, plant patents, and various publications of the McFarland Company.
Scope and Contents note:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 2,700 black and white mounted photographs, 448 glass lantern slides, and 41 glass plate negatives of gardens throughout the United States dating from 1899 to 1963. A small number of images show gardens in Austria, Canada, England, Mexico, Scotland and Wales. Many of the images, which were generated and used by the J. Horace McFarland Company to illustrate trade catalogs and journal and newspaper articles, indicate the publication(s) in which they appeared. A series of portraits of rosarians, many of them featured in Modern Roses 6, rounds out the image collection. The McFarland Collection also includes color records, plants patents, and miscellaneous publications. Color records are plant 'portraits' that were painted by McFarland Company staff artists in watercolor. They were referenced by the printing department in order to render illustrations of plants in colors as close to the originals as possible. The plant patents are patents for plants issued by the United States Patent Office. They include the plant name, source, filing and patent dates, patent number, and growth characteristics. Most are accompanied by a colored image of the plant identified in the patent. The miscellaneous publications are various pamphlets and booklets published by the J. Horace McFarland Company.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 5 series:

1) Garden images (including mounted photographs, glass plate negatives, and glass lantern slides)

2) Portraits of Rosarians

3) Color Records

4) Plant Patents

5) Miscellaneous Publications
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. J. Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an influential civic leader, author, publisher, horticulturist, and authority on roses. His printing company, Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It published many of the seed and nursery trade catalogs in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the first to apply color processes to commercial print applications. J. Horace McFarland Company staffers photographed thousands of different gardens and plant specimens throughout the United States. These images were used to illustrate numerous nursery and seed catalogs, journals and books. Among its many services, the firm sold various themed lectures illustrated by sets of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

McFarland wrote over 200 articles in popular journals as well as a dozen books on roses and gardening. He served as the first president of the American Civic Association from 1904-1924 and led several local and national campaigns to protect communities and scenic areas from urban blight and overdevelopment including the city of Harrisburg and Niagara Falls. McFarland, who served as the president of the American Rose Society (1930-1932) and helped establish a standardized rose identification and registration method, used the gardens on his own 2.5 acre property in Harrisburg, "Breeze Hill," to test hundreds of varieties of roses and plant cultivars. "Breeze Hill" was used as the backdrop for many photographs taken by McFarland's firm.

Owings Mills -- Mrs. Hathaway's Garden

Place:
Mrs. Hathaway's Garden (Owings Mills, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore -- Owings Mills
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
With only a rudimentary plan at the start, one owner has been gardening this 13.5 acre property since 1953, appreciating and augmenting the beauty of the natural setting. First, a house was built among aged beech trees already growing on the undeveloped site and then the undergrowth in woodlands was cleared and three foot borders were dug at the edges, intended for cultivated flowers and shrubs. The borders were widened, eventually to twelve feet and dogwood trees were planted under taller native trees (over 100 to 250 years old) including American beech, oaks and tulip poplars, appreciated for their lacy effect in spring and color in fall. Evergreens and other perennials with variegated foliage were planted in darker, shady areas to mimic dappled sunlight, a technique the owner learned in Scotland. A spring on the property was dammed to create a pond and a cut made by a bulldozer was turned into a spring bulb garden planted with daffodils. The gardens have been worked for sixty years and have changed every few years as trees grow or die off, affecting the amount of light reaching the understories. Cultivars that grow successfully here are used repeatedly, such as New Dawn rose varieties, and this gives coherence to the large property.
On the west side of the house there is a formal kitchen garden comprised of four bow-knot shaped boxwood parterres with a holly standard in the center of each. In the kitchen garden beds there are rose bushes, flowers, herbs and lettuces. A stone path leads to rose and cutting garden beds, and beyond them a former children's playhouse supports climbing roses, with peonies planted at the foundation. There is a small greenhouse tucked in next to the main house, planted containers along the driveway, and an espaliered tree on the side of the house. To the east there are additional deep flower borders fronting the woodlands. Two long rows of double sets of free-standing trellises covered with roses and clematis looked like railroad tracks when they were bare but now look more like pergolas as the vines meet over the grass walkway. A blue-painted teak bench was placed at the edge of the woodlands, copying an idea from Hidcote in England. Ornate cast iron gates that are a focal point in the back lawn mark the entrance to the swimming pool otherwise hidden behind tall hemlock hedges.

Varying Form:
Glencoe.
General:
Doe Run was the home/horse farm/garden of Sir John and Lady Esther (duPont) Thouron. Once known as "Glencoe," it was renamed by Sir John, who was an internationally renowned plantsman and the first to produce a clear yellow clivia. Development of the gardens, which encompassed about 15 acres of the 220-acre estate, began around 1960. Inspired by memories of his native Scotland, Sir John transformed open fields into a series of individual areas including an Alpine rock garden, water features, and English-style cottage gardens (albeit somewhat larger than those associated with the typical cottage). One highlight was a broad, 75-foot-long stone path flanked by herbaceous borders. There were also several greenhouses with orchids and flowers. Unusual plants, such as scarlet willows, a special variety of sweet bay, and new rhododendrons, were acquired from a variety of exotic and foreign sources, including Sir Peter Hutchison's 1978 expedition to China. Sir John passed away in 2007 (Lady Esther had preceded him in 1984). The property was sold in 2008.
Persons associated with the property include Sir John Thouron (former owner and plantsman, ca. 1960-2007) and Lady Esther duPont Thouron (former owner, ca. 1960-1984).

General:
The landscape was not "designed" by a landscape designer but was planted and cared for many years by a professional gardener. The story related was that the gentleman and his family lived in the house during the depression. His profession was little in demand during those years so he practiced on his own property.
The huge locusts all along the road are a native species and could have been gathered in nearby wooded areas but they were planted at measured distances. There is another row of them near the driveway on the right side of the house. As locusts must be removed from the property the present owner is replacing them.
The locust is currently "unpopular" and considered by some to be invasive, but on this property the owner thinks of these trees as the anchor plants. They hold the house to the ground. They certainly belong there. Whenever locusts are removed the wood is saved and used for fencing.
After the gardener and his family sold the property there were a few years when there was not much gardening, although there was good maintenance. The current lady of the house is a practiced gardener with a trained eye. The plan is to uncover the rock shelves and tuck in a minimum of plants. The selections are studied for shape and texture - not color. Summer color is added in pots.
Across the road from the house the owner has a tenant farmer working the fields. That field is planted in corn which he thinks is certainly appropriate to the vintage of the house. When the wind sweeps through the field it adds sound to the garden as does the Onesquethaw Creek when the water is high. Additional garden features include sculpture by Enzo Plazzotta and John Robinson.
