FW-ASCH-7RR-2791is a recording of Hermes Nye, accompanying himself on guitar, singing a variety of English language songs with little in common except their light-hearted or humorous nature. Hermes Nye performed on five solo albums for Folkways; however, none of the songs on this tape seems to have been used by Folkways. The songs are quite varied in origin and subject matter, ranging from an authentic cowboy song to old popular music dialect songs imitating or describing, if not poking fun at, various ethnic groups, such as Germans, Italians and native Americans.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
A 1922 Tudor-style house with three acres, listed on the National Historic Register, required extensive renovation by the current owners to preserve the original craftsmanship. The grounds were in need of reconditioning as well, including an original Japanese garden whose pond had to be re-dug, rocks repositioned, and plantings restored with more than 40 different Japanese maple trees. Landscape architect Craig Kiest's (ASLA) plan includes garden rooms, paths and hardscape, described by the owner as a classic design that features their plant collections. A circular driveway in front of the house surrounds a boxwood knot garden punctuated with container plantings. The uphill walk to the garden runs along a wall with espaliered camellias and is overlooked by a balcony for viewing the knot garden that has a wrought iron railing assembled from old gates found on the property. A serpentine rose border with more than one hundred plants is a colorful connector along the back driveway between the house and garage. An orchard, perennial bed, soccer field and upper lawn are arrayed between the house and the streets that border this corner lot.
Several bluestone terraces with stone steps and balustrades accommodate the terrain behind the house and lead to a formal garden that is on an axis with the dining room. A pergola planted with wisteria japonica crosses the entrance to the formal garden. In this garden surrounded by a hedge of holly there are boxwood parterres centered by a circular patch of lawn with an enormous restored stone planter with white Iceland roses and white alyssum in the summer. Large cast iron planters on bluestone platforms contain Japanese maples. The formal garden terminates in a seating area backed by a semi-circle of four columns and an old planting of English holly. Other features include a grotto with granite semi-circular steps and a grindstone, a wall fountain with a bronze frog, and an Italianate cobblestone patio with beds of hydrangea. Frogs and dragonflies are recurring motifs in the iron hardware on the buildings and in garden ornaments. Flowering vines and container gardens, climbing roses, and a rose and wild geranium parterre add color to the vigorous greenery that grows in this favorable climate.
The Japanese garden features the colorful Japanese maple tree collection and a pond stocked with koi. Additional trees from the earlier garden include copper beech, gingko, and Japanese umbrella pine. There is a raised vegetable garden for berries, grapes, pumpkins and artichokes with a custom made wooden fence, and wooded areas underplanted with hosta and other shade-tolerant perennials. A large lawn bisecting these forests leads to a rectangular reflecting pool with a colonnade that was found buried in an old laurel hedge on the property and restored.
Persons associated with the garden include Percy Smith family (former owners, 1922-1994); Craig Kiest, ASLA (landscape architect, 1997-1999); Dave Sexton (gardener, 1999-present)

General:
Lying at the meeting of Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic, Hammersmith Farm was originally settled in the 17th century by surveyor William Brenton and named for his English residence. Eventually passing into the Auchincloss family, the property was landscaped by the Olmsted Brothers firm (records show that the firm was involved with the site from 1909 to 1946). Other designs for the property were developed by Nathan Franklin Barrett, Herbert Kellaway, and Boris V. Timchenko. An elaborate Italianate sunken garden was centered on a pool flanked by low mounds of flowers. Geometrically shaped flowers beds lay to either side, while the space was decorated by urns and columns. A pergola enclosed three sides. The property was the site of the wedding reception of Mrs. Hugh D. Auchincloss, Jr.'s daughter, Jacqueline Bouvier, and John F. Kennedy.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: William Brenton (former owner, after 1638); John W. Auchincloss (former owner, c. 1887); Mr. and Mrs. Hugh D. Auchincloss (former owners, early 20th century); Mr. and Mrs. Hugh D. Auchincloss (former owners, mid-20th century); Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects (landscape architects, 1909-1946); Nathan Franklin Barrett (landscape designer, 1912); Herbert J.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This garden was designed by an unknown Italian landscape designer with an additional re-design executed during the 1920s and 1940s. The Italian-style antebellum home, once a country estate, is set on a hill in the heart of the city of Memphis. It was screened from urban traffic by a dense grove of magnolias, tulip poplars and oaks. The property was named 'Annesdale' by Colonel Robert Bogardus Snowden after his wife, Annie Overton Brinkley of Nashville in the mid to late 1800s. The original farm included vegetable and flower gardens tended by Itailian gardeners. Plantings included roses and peonies.
In the 1970s, Annesdale was comprised of eight acres. A two-story ornamental iron balcony overlooked formal flower beds outlined by curving pathways. On the west side of the porte-cocheĢ€re are two wrought iron gates opening on the boxwood allee leading to the circular pool and fountain.
In 2005, the garden still included elements of the original Italiante design. Portions of the garden were surrounded with brick walls and garden features included two ornamental pools and nineteenth century statuary.
The tower on the front of the house was used as a lookout during the Civil War. Like many other Southern mansions, Annesdale was used as a hospital during the Civil War.
Persons associated with the property include: Col. and Mrs. Robert Bogardus Snowden (former owner, mid to late 1800s), Mr. and Mrs. J. Bayard Snowden (former owner, dates unknown), Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. Todd, Jr. (former owner, 1950s?-2010).

The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, photo copies of articles, nursery invoices, correspondence, and booklet on Craig family and Candoro Marble Company.
General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

General:
The gardens at Charnwood, a three-acre property in Memphis, Tennessee, were designed beginning in 1925 by Warda Stevens Stout, a former owner. There were massive plantings of perennial flowers, roses and bulbs in formal garden beds around a large fountain and on three terraces that led to an exedra. Features included old columns, artificial ruins, a wishing well and an irregularly shaped koi pond and water garden. The style of the garden was Italianate, complementing the style of the house. Today most of the ornamental gardens are gone: the flowering terraces have been replaced by lawns, the former flower beds around the fountain are nearly bare, and the pond flowers are towering. Remnants of the brick walks and steps can be seen. A large swimming pool was installed near Mrs. Stout's wishing well and the old chicken coop is now used as a garden shed.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Norfleet (former owners, until 1925); Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Stout (former owners, beginning in 1925); Dr. and Mrs. O'Farrell Shoemaker (former owners); Obadiah Gray (gardener); and Warda Stevens Stout (garden designer and horticulturist).

Glebelands (Manchester, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Bennington County -- Manchester
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, narrative description of the garden, and a garden plan.
General:
The term "glebe land," from which this garden takes its name, means land owned by a church, and the owner of this property pays a yearly glebe rent to Zion Episcopal Church. Pockets of glebe land (many of which still exist) throughout the village of Manchester and on nearby Mt. Equinox, when rented out in the 18th and 19th centuries for grazing, provided revenue for the church. A focal point for the property today is a 100-yard long marble dam, which dates from the 1840s when the property was a marble mill. It now provides water for the lower swimming pond. The hillside across the upper pond is all marble chips and displays a host of daffodils in the spring. The shell fountain in the secret garden is fed by the waterfall from the dam. The formal garden was started in the 1930s and is entered through the orchard, which is underplanted with naturalized narcissus. Ornaments of diverse origin are encountered, including marble balls that were the tops of gateposts at "Avalon," the Princeton, New Jersey, home of the theologian and hymn-writer Henry Van Dyck, and which were liberated by the owner's mother when that property was torn down. An Italian marble table and wrought iron gates and grilles came from New Orleans, while a wrought iron arc, originally a fanlight, was salvaged from a demolished bank in New York City. The small pool of Portuguese tile at the end of the peony allee is known as "Polly's bathtub," and is where the owner's mother cooled herself after gardening. Flower beds are edged with bricks removed from a heart-shaped patio once found in front of a large rock. The succulents in the patio were put on the rock and compete with moss for survival. The marble walls which contain the formal beds were built in the 1950s. The caisson housing the bubble fountain is what remained after a marble column had been extracted. The caissons were used as culverts on local roads and here have been cut in half to make garden seats. Richard Olcott, F.A.I.A., designed the reflecting pool in 1995.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Carver (former owners, 1892-1913); Mr. and Mrs. William Prettyman (former owners, 1913-1921); Joseph Leiter and Franklin Remington (Carver trustees, 1921-1923); Mr. and Mrs. William Powers (former owners, 1923-1929); Mr. and Mrs. George Hardy (former owners, 1929-1931); Mr. and Mrs. Anton G. Hardy (former owners, 1931-1985); and Richard M. Olcott (architect, 1995).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of correspondence, brochures, photocopies of articles and book chapters about the site, and other information.
General:
Situated along Miami Bay, Vizcaya was the 1916-1925 winter home of industrialist James Deering. With overall supervision by Paul Chalfin, development of the site included a mansion designed by architect Francis Burrall Hoffman, Jr., and extensive gardens created by Colombian-born Diego Suarez. The gardens combined Italian Renaissance and French design elements and took seven years to complete. They were conceived as one vast outdoor room whose individual parts were integrated into a complementary whole. Garden features included many fountains, a central pool surrounding an elevated island, the elevated "Mound" with its small house or "Casino," statuary, and several themed gardens. Over the years hurricanes, humidity, and salt air took a toll on both the mansion and gardens, and much of the original property was sold for development. The site is now owned by Miami-Dade County, is open to the public, and continues to undergo extensive restoration. A recent garden addition is the David A. Klein Orchidarium to the north of the main house.
Persons associated with the property include: James Deering (former owner, 1916-1925); Paul Chalfin (designer); Francis Burrall Hoffman, Jr. (architect); and Diego Suarez (landscape designer).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes correspondence and articles.
General:
"About 1917, Mrs. E. T. Stotesbury of Philadelphia tired of the old-fashioned shingle cottages and yellow frame hotels, and called upon Addison Mizner to build for her a suitable home. Addison Mizner had impeccable taste and a genius for creating beauty, and he built for Mrs. Stotesbury the first of the great villas which now line the shores of Palm Beach island. The patio of this house is more Italian than Spanish feeling. The house was designed primarily for entertaining and has a large loggia in which a hundred or more guests can be seated for lunch or dinner. Inside the house there is a large dining room and reception rooms. Beyond the house a lawn runs to the Ocean."
"Turning to look westward toward Lake Worth, we see the patio from the house. Notice the tall, columnar cypresses used at each corner of the fountain. They create an illusion of far away Italy. there are always many pots of flowering plants adding color to the patio. In the far distance can be seen the guest house on Lake Worth."
"The property runs from ocean to lake. The house is Spanish style and patio is Italianate."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Stotesbury (former owner in 1930's); Addison Mizner (architect in 1920's).
There are some duplicate 35-mm. slides from the Mattie Edwards Hewitt Collection.
The Stotesbury's also owned Whitemarsh Hall in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania.
