World War II Memorial Garden (Erie, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie County -- Erie
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopy of an article, and other information.
General:
Created under the direction of the late John C. Ferguson, the World War II Memorial of Erie Pennsylvania was dedicated on November 11, 1999. The memorial is comprised of a garden and granite blocks engraved with the names of 727 soldiers from Erie County who died while in service during World War II, a brief pictorial history of the war, and images of a number of veterans who survived the war. The original landscaping for the site was designed to complement the memorial and to minimize maintenance needs. At its inception plantings included silver maples, a juniper hedge, pampas grasses, black-eyed Susans, and daylilies.
In 2001 John Ferguson asked his son, Tim Ferguson to assume responsibility for the upkeep of the landscape, which had been maintained by contracted professional landscaping crews. Tim took the opportunity to become more personally invested in the caretaking of the memorial and over the next few years he made various improvements to the property to enhance certain aspects of the memorial and to add more variety of color to the landscaping. Bradford pear trees were added to complement the scale of the monument, provide shade in the summer, and add color as they bloom in the spring. Shrub roses, an addition inspired by military cemeteries in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, and gold mop juniper were added for color; the black-eyed Susans were replaced with Ninebark, as well as arborvitae, and boxwood, to provide a sheltering effect and promote a more serene environment. Red and white geraniums are used to add color, as are tulips and daffodils, and dwarf Japanese Maples add additional privacy and screening and provide a thematic link to the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II.
Persons and groups associated with the garden include: John C. Ferguson (chairman, 1998-2006), John Timothy Ferguson (director, 2000-present), Erie School District (property owner), The Seedlings Garden Club (garden volunteers), Dan Dahlkemper (landscape architect, 1998-1999), Mike Geiger/Geiger & Sons (designer, stonemason, 1998-1999), Prudence Burnes (graphic artist, 1999)

There is some limited biographical material on the artist's widow, Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi, plus interviews with her talking about Kuniyoshi.

Correspondence is divided into correspondence with Yasuo Kuniyoshi and the correspondence with his second wife, Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi. The Yasuo Kuniyoshi correspondence discusses various topics including exhibits and his status as a Japanese American during World War II. The bulk of the series consists of correspondence with Sara after Yasuo's death and usually relates to exhibitions of his work, and reproduction requests for the inclusion of his work in publications. Of note is her correspondence with Alexander Brook, Ritsuko Ozawa, Tom Wolf, and the Yasuo Kuniyoshi Museum in Japan.

Writings and lectures include Kuniyoshi's writings and speeches about other artists, art and the art profession, lithography, and World War II. Also found are statements on his own work and extensive notes for his autobiography. There are two sound recordings of lectures by Kuniyoshi at art schools as well as writings by others, including Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi, about Yasuo Kuniyoshi.

Also noteworthy are the records of Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi's dealings with the Downtown Gallery and Zabriskie Galleries.

Exhibition files include a few files on exhibitions while Yasuo Kuniyoshi was alive, but most of the series consists of files created by Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi about exhibitions of Kuniyoshi's works after his death in 1953. Files may include exhibition checklists and planning documents, loan agreements, correspondence, photographs of the exhibition, and press materials.

Printed material consists of books, newspaper, and magazine clippings about Kuniyoshi and about World War II. There are numerous exhibition catalogs and announcements and some magazines, posters, brochures, and bulletins.

There are four scrapbooks of printed material related to Kuniyoshi and his artwork. The scrapbooks contain press clippings, exhibition announcements, checklists, and a few catalogs.

Artwork consists of etchings, numerous sketches and drawings in graphite and ink, sketches painted onto clear acetate which Kuniyoshi used for catalogs, two zinc lithographic plates and their corresponding prints, and a sketchbook. Drawings that Yasuo Kuniyoshi created for the Office of War Information during World War II are in this series. There is one folder of pencil sketches by unidentified artists.

Photographic material are mostly photographs of Kuniyoshi in his studio, at various events and parties, teaching at Mills College and with his wife Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi. Also found are photographs of artists, including Francis Criss, Julian Levi, Doris and Russell Lee, and others, taken by Yasuo Kuniyoshi.

Biographical Note:
Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1889-1953) was a Japanese-American painter, printmaker and photographer based in New York, N.Y.

Kuniyoshi was born in Okayama, Japan. In 1906 he came to the United States and a year later began studying at the Los Angeles School of Art and Design. In 1910 he moved to New York and took courses at the National Academy of Design, the Independent School of Art, and the Art Students League, where he studied with Kenneth Hayes Miller. He was married to fellow artist Katherine Schmidt from 1919 to 1932. After traveling throughout Europe, they moved to the Woodstock, New York, in 1927 and took part in the Woodstock Art Colony. Kuniyoshi studied and later taught at the Art Students League summer school there.

By 1930 Kuniyoshi had established himself as an internationally known painter and graphic artist. In 1935, he received a Guggenheim fellowship and married Sara Mazo. In New York City he taught at the Art Students League, the New School for Social Research, and served as the first president of the Artists Equity Association from 1947 to 1950. Kuniyoshi was active in social organizations, especially Japanese American organizations, such as the Japanese American Committee for Democracy. Although Kuniyoshi was barred from becoming a citizen due to American immgration laws at the time, he viewed himself as American and took an active role in the war effort during World War II, even working with the U.S. Office of War Information department to design posters.

The Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective for Kuniyoshi in 1948, making him the first living artist to be honored in such a fashion at the museum. Yasuo Kuniyoshi died of cancer in 1953 and was survived by his second wife Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi who preserved the legacy of his work.
