General:
This old Tacoma garden, owned by Tacoma Garden Club member Mrs. James M. Ashton, was situated on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound. Plantings included tree peonies, iris, many rare shrubs, and cherry and plum trees. An immense climbing hydrangea (H. petiolaris) covered one the side of the house and was among the first imported from China. Four lead statues of the Seasons, imported from England, were placed in the corners of box hedge in the rose garden. The garden was toured in 1930 by members of the Garden Club of America on their 'Northwestern Trip' in 1930. On that tour the hostess prepared a performance by Japanese children around a large bonfire.

Lakewold (Tacoma, Washington)
Scope and Contents:
13 4 X 6in. photographic prints, 11 postcards, approximately 88 35mm slides (originals and reproductions), and 2 folders. Folder 1 includes extensive information about the garden (newspaper clippings, annual meeting brochures, etc.), correspondence between Mrs. Corydon Wagner, a copy of a 1930 booklet created by the Tacoma Garden Club for the 1930 Garden Club of America annual meeting, and Eleanor Weller and research on findings for the Olmsted Brothers.
Biographical / Historical:
Eulalie Merrill (1904-1991) was born on October 16, 1904 in Seattle to Dwight and Eula Lee Merrill. She was an avid golf player who held The Pacific Northwest Ladies title for three straight years. She and Corydon Wagner acquired the Lakewold property in 1938 and gardening became more important than golf. She received the Garden Club of America Medal of Merit in 1968, the Montague Award in 1978, the Creative Leadership award in 1984, and the Zone Horticultural Achievement Award also in 1984. Mrs. Wagner gave the gardens to The Friends of Lakewold, an organization with the specific purpose of assuming responsibility for its care.
Varying Form:
Inglewood, formerly known as.
General:
Located on ten acres, this garden is a collection of several gardens surrounding a Georgian home on Gravelly Lake in Lakewold, a suburb of Tacmoa. Mr. and Mrs. Cordydon Wagner purchased the estate in 1938. The perimeter fence, gate and brick walkway were part of the early design. However, the original designer is unknown. In the 1950s, landscape architect Thomas Church redesigned the gardens to include a quatrefoil-shaped swimming pool, a shade garden around a 200-year-old Douglas fir (considered a "wolf" tree), a lookout to the rock gardens, waterfalls and pools leading to the lake. Church discouraged the development of a rock garden since it would cause the neglect of the formal areas, but Mrs. Wagner insisted.

The property is dominated by giant Douglas Fir trees and features an extensive collection of rhododendron. It features a brick walkway leading to a vine-covered summer house. The walk is bordered by boxwood parterres, one shaped in a quatrefoil which repeats the design of the swimming pool. The pool is on an axis with a view of Mt. Rainier framed by trees across Gravelly Lake. The garden also features an Elizabethan knot garden planted with herbs, a rock garden, and an exotic tree collection. When the garden was redesigned in the 1950s by Thomas Church, 200 firs were felled to balance the woods with the openess of the site. Dressing rooms and a kitchen were added to the teahouse and gazebo, the port-cochere was removed from the house and a motor court was added to accomodate space for twenty cars, and a glassed-in room with a Plexiglass roof was added to the side of the house that faced the swimming pool.

Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Alexander (former owner, before 1924), Mrs. Evertt Griggs (former owner, 1924), Mr. and Mrs. Corydon Wagner, Jr. (former owner, 1938), The Friends of Lakewold Foundation (owner, circa 1989), Thomas Church (landscape architect, 1953)

There is no direct connection between Mr. and Mrs. Alexander and the Olmsted firm. A tenuous link may exist through E.C. Griggs (job number 3725). Mr. Everett Griggs wrote to the Olmsted firm, specifically to James Dawson, in January of 1911, sending them a topographical survey, which he had prepared for the property. He noted that he had been in touch with Alex MacDougall, superintendent of the Thorne estate who had worked on several Olmsted gardens in the area. The next letter in the file is from May 1923 from Alex MacDougall (working in the Highlands in Seattle) to James Dawson.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and family letters.
General:
Irwin Zanone (b.2/14/1942-d.7/23/2008) was the primary designer and gardener of this 2.5 acre property. Zanone worked with others to create an orderly but relaxing environment with free-form curving beds for ornamental plants, a shaded curving walkway around the main garden areas with neatly planted beds alongside, and rectangular beds for the kitchen garden that included peonies, dill and asparagus planted in rows. With a family background in farming in the delta region, Zanone planted diverse perennials, shrubs, trees and vines and installed sculptures by Roy Tamboli and Larry Young. The brick hardscape stairs and walls at the entrance to the woodland garden are in geometric shapes, the swimming pool in a clearing is an organic form, and the garden house is a symmetrical design. An area for outdoor entertaining is approached via a shady walk through the woodland garden, and the kitchen garden and compost heap are located at the rear of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCallum (former owners, circa 1950-1979); Irwin Zanone (garden designer and gardener, 1982-2008); Jeanne Leatherman (garden designer and gardener, 1982-1987); Tom Pellett (garden designer, 1982-present); Roy Tamboli (sculptor, 1995); Larry Young (sculptor, 2008); and Samuel Earl Abraham (gardener, 1979-present).

General:
The property, home of Charles Wilson Peale, lies on the outskirts of Germantown. Peale developed the estate from a one hundred acre farm, laying out his garden with box-bordered walks, lilacs, summer houses, arches, and pools. William Logan Fisher bought the property, which adjoined the Fisher estate (Wakefield) and the Logan estate (Stenton), in ca. 1825. He bought it for his daughter, Sarah on her marriage to William Wister. Sarah Logan Wister Starr, granddaughter of the former couple and daughter of John Wister inherited the estate. She added telepone and electricity with underground cables so that the garden would not be disturbed with poles. Sarah's husband, James Starr, added water and rock gardens, while she added a garden of 100 hybrid tea roses. A Chinese style garden was added after a trip to China in 1933.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wilson Peale (former owner, 1780); Sarah Logan Fisher Wister (former owner, 1823); John Wister (former owner); Sarah Logan Wister Starr (former owner, 1922-1956); and La Salle University (owners of portions of property and house, 1926, 1984).

Date:

bulk 1962-2005
Scope and Contents:
Contains personal and business correspondence. Occasionally includes speeches by Arthur C. Clarke, editor's notes on various novels, interview transcripts, photos sent by the letter writers (sometimes of Clarke,) newspaper clippings and pages from magazines.

Some correspondence was grouped separately, by correspondent, even though these correspondents also occur in the general correspondence.

In 1998, Arthur Clarke's correspondence with Lord Dunsany was published as a book.

Notable correspondents include: J.B.S. Haldane, Wernher von Braun, Ben Bova, Val Cleaver, Fred Clarke, Bill Temple, John W. Campbell, Horace Dall, Robert & Ginny Heinlein, Hugh Hefner, Felix Godwin, Patrick Moore, Willian Macquitty, Carl Sagan, Luis Alvarez, Stanley Kubrick, Esther Goddard, Nigel Calder, Issac Asimov, Michael Moorcock, Willy Ley, John Glenn, Ray Bradbury, Brian Aldiss, George Mueller, James Webb, Paul Garber, David Gerrold, Gregory Peck, Ivan Yefremov, David Lasser, Owen Gingrich, Gore Vidal, Douglas Trumbell, Sam Youd, Frederick Pohl, Fred Durant, Mike Wilson, Roger Caras, Robert K.G.

Arrangement:
Original order by the creator was chronological by year, split into 2-3 months at a time, then alphabetically. Sometimes correspondence was in store-bought file folder with sections, sometimes in handmade "binders" but always the same arrangement. Archivist physically re-created this arrangement by using paper wrappers to represent each section. When the section was labeled by the creator, the archivist labeled the paper wrapper the same. If paper wrapper is blank then so was the original section tab.

There are some missing years in the correspondence. Misc. correspondence found loose in the collection was placed at the end of the series.

When appropriate, the processing archivist added a description beneath the file unit title.
