Scope and Contents:
This series of photographs was taken by the Philadelphia bureau of Wide World Photos, Inc., a news reporting service that provided content to newspapers and magazines. They were accompanied by a list of lengthy captions supplied by World Wide Photos that was likely intended for newspaper copy. The Burpee collection at AAG includes only some of images in the World Wide Photos series of women working at Fordhook Farms.
General:
During World War II, the workforce in the United States experienced labor shortages due to the millions of men serving in the military at the time, leaving many companies to rely on women to fill a variety of positions. In 1943, David Burpee, of W. Atlee Burpee and Company, assembled a group of female horticultural students from Cornell University, New Jersey Agricultural College, and other schools to maintain the company's Fordhook Farms, cultivate plants, and harvest seeds. Burpee renovated an old farmhouse into a dormitory for the women to reside in during their time working for the Burpee Farm. These images document the leisure activities the women engaged in after the workday ended, such as reading, writing letters, playing the piano, swimming, playing bad mitten, and eating together.

Diaries

Collection Creator:
Saarinen, Lilian Swann, 1912-1995  Search this
Extent:
1.4 Linear feet (Boxes 3-5, 8)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1930-1973
Scope and Contents:
Saarinen was a prolific journal writer and her diaries are in bound volume and loose leaf form. Bound diary volumes from 1930/1931 to 1942 document her life from her "coming out year" and continue through the early years of her marriage to Eero Saarinen. Her 1939 diary opens in Florence, Italy, in August 1939, days before Germany's invasion of Poland, and describes the tenuous situation the newlyweds found themselves in and their difficulties finding passage back to the United States. The diary labeled 1936 and 1937 also contains a series of entries for 1958-1959. Written on the page at the front of the 1939 December-1942 January is the inscription: "Diary-Cranbrook from Sept 1939 To:" and "The new Mrs. E. E. Saarinen!" but any original pages that existed from September-November are missing. The months August-October 1939 are included in the previous diary.

Loose diary entries, beginning around circa 1934 and continuing to 1953, with scattered additional entries in the 1950s-1970s, focus primarily on Saarinen's marriage to Eero Saarinen. They document in depth her emotional struggles as a working mother attempting to forge her own artistic identity, maintain a healthy family environment for her children, and support Eero Saarinen's growing international success, while not allowing that to stymie her own artistic ambitions. These folders include many handwritten notes and drafts of "letters" to Eero Saarinen which are journalistic in nature and include dream journals, "writings and ravings just before wedding," and notes found with her diaries.

Saarinen's engagement calendars are heavily annotated with notes documenting her professional appointments, progress on works of art and commissions, and Saarinen's leisure activities.
Arrangement:
Some of the diary entries within volumes are not strictly chronological and often do not occur in a linear fashion.
Collection Restrictions:
Use of original papers requires an appointment and is limited to the Archives' Washington, D.C. Research Center. Contact Reference Services for more information.

United States of America -- Alabama -- Jefferson County -- Birmingham
General:
Vestavia was the 20-acre country estate of George B. Ward (1867-1940) located on the crest of Shades Mountain about six miles from Birmingham, Alabama. Ward was the 13th Mayor of Birmingham from 1905 to 1909, as well as a successful businessman and financier. As the mayor, Ward worked to establish city parks for the citizens to enjoy during their leisure time. Using plans designed by the Olmstead Firm and adding athletic fields, Ward developed Green Springs Park, which was renamed George Ward Park following his death in 1940.

Wards home, built in 1925, was a replica of the Temple of Vesta inspired by his interest in the classics and travels to Greece and Rome. The home's location on Shades Mountain afforded an exceptional view overlooking the city of Birmingham and the surrounding countryside. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and carried the carried the Greco-Roman theme with doghouses shaped like miniature Roman temples, models of ancient ships floating in the pond, and a gazebo-type Temple of Sibyl, which was copied from a structure twelve miles from Rome in Tivoli. Ward opened the house and gardens to the public for tours on special occasions. He was also known to host elaborate themed parties complete with servants costumed as Roman Soldiers, young ladies dancing as the barefooted Vestal Virgins, and the guests dressed in togas.

A residential community grew around the estate and is now a large suburban municipality known as Vestavia Hills. The image of home became so iconic to the people of the city that its image was used in the design for the city's logo. Following Ward's death in 1940, the home was sold. After nearly a decade of neglect the home was converted to a restaurant and tourist attraction for a brief time before being sold to the Vestavia Hills Baptist Church. The once pagan temple was used to hold church services until 1971, when it was razed and replaced with a new sanctuary. The Sybil Temple gazebo was donated to the Vestavia Hills Garden Club, who had it installed above US Highway 31.

Persons associated include: George B. Ward (former owner, 1923-1940), William Leslie Welton (architect, 1923-1925), Vestavia Hills Baptist Church (former owner).
