Autochromes (photographs)
Date:
circa 1910-1920
Summary:
The John Hiller Lantern Slide Collection contains 216 glass autochromes dated circa 1910-1920 documenting homes and gardens, house interiors, scenes from domestic and foreign travel, flower arrangements, and people in Europe and unidentified locations.
Scope and Contents Note:
The John Hiller Collection contains 216 glass autochromes dated c. 1910-1920. The images cover a wide array of subjects and regions, with many of them showing landscapes and travel destinations. Some show house interiors, flower arrangements, or casual groups of people. Several of the autochromes show historic towns and ruins in Greece and Switzerland along with some in Croatia, Italy, Bulgaria and Austria. Scattered amongst these are slides of various unidentified sites and gardens. It is not known if any of the unidentified images show sites in the United States.

The photographer(s) of these images is unknown. The uniformity of the type of tape used to seal each of the autochromes suggests that the images are likely the work of one photographer or photo studio rather than a collection compiled by an individual from multiple sources.
Provenance:
John Hiller, an employee in the Smithsonian's Office of Exhibits Central, donated the collection to the Archives of American Gardens in 2005. The collection had been on deposit in the Archives for a few years prior to it being formally donated.

Portland -- Duckridge Farm

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Duckridge Farm (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, a description of the garden written by the owner, and a color photo.
General:
This 85-acre property and its gardens have been under development since 1979 by both the original owner and her architect grandson, the current owner. The house, completed in 1979, is styled after French country farmhouses. Because of the advanced age of the original owner, one of the primary objectives of the garden was to allow her to view it from the house without actually venturing out into it. This was accomplished by creating long axial views deep into the landscape through a variety of garden spaces. The house is on a hilltop and the gardens terrace down the hill from the house. The entry hall of the house is in line with the most significant landscape feature, the meadow, which stretches from the house to the wood's edge. Additional axial views from the house include one framing Bald Peak, the highest peak that can be seen from the house, while other axial views can only be appreciated while in the garden. These various views are framed and aligned by using evergreens trimmed like columns and low walls to edge and direct the eyes through the garden. Architectural elements at the end of each axis provide focal points. In deference to the style of the house, gardens close to it are formal and "continental" in design. Moving away from the house, the gardens loosen up and relate better to the woods that surround the site. Within the overall evergreen structure are perennial gardens punctuated by ornamental shrubs and trees selected for spring and fall color. Annuals are used sparingly in containers where the soil and water can be better controlled. The current owner continues to use the garden as a laboratory to explore new ideas and to improve on less successful decisions made in the past. Overall, this is aided by the remarkable climate and good soil conditions of Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Persons associated with the garden include: Blanche Dimmit Miller (former owner, 1978-1990).

Archival materials
Place:
Vernon Court (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles and periodical and book illustrations about the garden (the Indoors and Out article, cited below, includes a garden plan).
General:
Complementing a mansion designed around 1898 by Carrère & Hastings for Anna Van Nest Gambrill (Mrs. Richard Gambrill, Sr.), this garden was the work of Wadley & Smythe. A large sunken garden with a central fountain was a replica of Anne Boleyn's garden at Hampton Court. A terrace ran the length of the house, while the formal garden was enclosed on the north and south sides by towering privet hedges. Gravel paths framed the sunken garden and also divided it into four sections. North and south of the house were smaller intimate gardens. Highlighting the south garden was a domed summer house and a small fountain, while standard and floribunda roses amidst box borders were features of the north garden. Beginning in 1956 with its sale by the Gambrill family, the property passed through several owners, and the gardens and grounds were largely neglected until the early 1970s. The mansion currently houses the National Museum of American Illustration, under whose aegis extensive restoration work on the gardens has been undertaken. Many of the slides are images of periodical and book illustrations. Other gardens associated with the Gambrill family in the Archives of American Gardens include Vernon Manor I (NJ107) and Vernon Manor II (NJ227).
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Anna Van Nest Gambrill (former owner, c. 1898-1927); Carrère & Hastings (architects, c. 1898); and Wadley & Smythe (landscape architects, c. 1898).

The Whim (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles, historic photographs, and landscape architect's plans, transcripts of interviews, and other information.
General:
The Whim is a seaside New England garden comprised of flower and shrub borders and a sunken quadrangle planted along the foundation walls of demolished greenhouses, with follies, sculptures, steps to the ocean planted with lavender, and swaths of lawn. The walls and privet hedges trimmed to calibrated heights protect the flowers from the salt spray and winds off the ocean while not blocking the view. The 3.4 acre property has other garden areas surrounding the lawns, including a border of bright blue Nikko hydrangeas that are fed aluminum sulfate, a crabapple border, a shed draped with a climbing rose, a secret garden with kousa dogwood and viburnum, and a shady garden walk alongside the house. Garden areas are named for the animal and other sculptures that are featured, including a heron by Walter Matia in the heron quadrangle, eagles at the head of the eagle borders, and rabbits copied from the ones that were at Chateau-sur-Mer, a Newport mansion.
This property was once part of a larger property that had gardens designed by Beatrix Farrand for her aunt, the author Edith Wharton. The Evangeline climbing rose that covers the tool shed was transplanted from the Wharton garden many years ago, and renamed the Miss Newport rose by the owner. Friends and associates have contributed design ideas and artifacts to this garden: the mushroom shaped garden furniture once belonged to a friend, the gazebo was purchased and installed by one of the gardeners, and the steps were fabricated from discarded Newport curbing.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Thayer, (landscape architect, 1968-present); T. J. Brown and Timothy Brown, (gardeners, 1952-present); Anne Baptista (property manager, 1989-present); and Jerica Ford (gardener, 2007-present).

Buzzy's Surprise Garden (Memphis, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Shelby County -- Memphis
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Buzzy's Surprise Garden serves as an excellent example of a small urban garden that provides a peaceful environment to relax and recharge. The property, only one third of an acre, was purchased in 1999 by its current owner who took it upon herself to create an urban oasis in the small space that was available. The planting plan incorporates boxwoods, hostas, mosses, pachysandra, and others for their varied green hues and textures; and Lenten roses, camellias, Annabelle hydrangeas, and various flowering bulbs for additions of color. A network of brick patios and pathways provide framework for the greenery; a wall fountain and wind chimes provide a soundscape; and various sculptures, glass globes, and birdhouses offer whimsical elements that reflect the individuality of the garden's creator.
Persons associated with the garden include: Priscila and George Early (former owners, 1930's); Billy Oates (former owner); Gail and Eugene Woods (former owners, 1970's); Ann and Mason Hawkins (former owners, 1970's -1980's); Jenny and William Grehan (former owners, 1980's-1990's); Juanna McCoy (former owner, 1990's); Jean Jones House (garden designer, 2000-present); and Danny Daniels (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and a brochure.
General:
Elements of the original Country Place Era garden designed by Ralph Ellis Gunn have been preserved on the three- quarter acre property with a Georgian Style house designed in 1934 by architect Birdsall Briscoe. These features include a lead wall fountain in the east garden room, live oak trees that have matured, the fountain that was the focal point of the axis of the rear garden, and a serpentine brick wall covered in fig ivy that enclosed the south and west perimeters of the back garden. In 2000 landscape architect Johnny Steele designed a parterre garden to replace the struggling St. Augustine lawn in back that was overly shaded by mature trees. The parterres are bordered by low boxwood hedges and filled with ornamental seasonal plantings. Four jasmine columns trained on metal frames anchor the corners and an armillary sphere sits on a pedestal in the center. An understory of trees including Japanese maple and flowering cherry and shade-loving lower story plants, including ferns, strawberry begonia and cast iron plants, were added to the existing banks of azaleas and camellias. The basin of the lead wall fountain was raised slightly onto a layer of brick and trimmed on top with another row of bricks.
The front garden was redesigned after the demise of a large water oak. Two broad brick bordered steps were installed and planted with zoysia grass, with seasonal plantings in the beds flanking the sides of the steps beneath banks of G.G. Gerbing white azaleas. These formal additions were designed as evolutions of the original character of the house, garden and neighborhood.
The Simmons Garden has been included on the annual Azalea Trail event in Houston.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Milton R. Underwood (former owners, 1934-1965); Mr. and Mrs. Claude K. Williams (former owners, 1965-1985); Birdsall Parmenas Briscoe (1876-1971) (architect, 1934); Ralph Ellis Gunn (1908-1976) (landscape architect, 1934-1936); Johnny Steele (landscape architect, 1985--).
