Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.

General:
"Spreading over 2 1/2 acres, this is a naturalistic stroll garden where planting areas blend easily into each other. Terraced perennial beds are a profusion of poppies, peonies, iris, phlox, rudbeckias, verbascums, daylilies, asters and grasses, all of which in their seasons flow into and around a three-tiered vegetable garden."
"Native plants, magnolias, rhododendrons, flowering trees and shrubs highlight a profusion of plantings in island beds. Woodland walks cut through carpets of spring flowers, while in summer winding paths meander through a colorful wildflower meadow."
"The angular lines of the house are softened with gently curving beds and specimen plants. The entire garden is effectively "contained" by a green screen of shrubs, conifers and small flowering trees. Frog, toad and grasshopper sculptures add a whimsical note."
Persons associated with the property include: William H. Frederick, Jr. (landscape architect, 1990); Andre Harvey (sculptor); Eric Berg (sculptor); Lois Hannah (sculptor); William Allen (sculptor); and Kit Schweitzer (sculptor).

United States of America -- Virginia -- Orange County -- Orange
General:
"Our garden is essentially a spring and early summer garden, the major part carved out of what was originally a densely wooded area with a stream flowing from a spring on the property to the Rapidan River. It is also a "his and her" garden, the perennials and herbs being "hers" and the woodland wildflowers, rhododendrons and rock garden being "his"."
"The garden is on three levels: the street level with a perennial garden against the ha-ha wall, an herb garden and lily border lead to a second level with three perennial borders and two paths, one with a view of the Rapidan River sloping down to the rock garden and the other to the wildflower garden and stream."
"There are approximately 600 rhododendrons and azaleas on the property, grown largely from seed or cuttings by the owner, some quite rare or unusual. One is R. bureavii from the garden of King Gustav of Sweden, obtained as cuttings from Dr. Serbin, ARS. Also cuttings from Dr. Serbin are several very dwarf and slow growing Rhododendron kiusoami (Hillier form). Many deciduous azaleas were grown from seed from Scottish gardens."
"Historically the property is on the north, east and south bounds of the Octonia Grant of 1722 to eight related members of the Beverley, Standard and Winslow family."
Persons associated with the property include: Fred A. Spicer (former owners from 1933 to 1964); Donald R. Ober (former owner from 1964 to 1975); Frank G. Scott, II (former owner from 1975 to 1978); Theodore G. Scott, Jr. (former owner from 1978 to 1996).

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Ernst Herzfeld first visited Naqsh-i Rustam in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. During the two last months of 1923 as well as early March 1924, in addition of his work on the terrace of Persepolis, Herzfeld spent time at Naqsh-i Rustam checking the inscriptions. In 1928, the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia, in an expedition funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis, Pasargadae, and Naqsh-i Rustam. On March 1, 1931, now under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, excavations at Persepolis were begun. Ultimately, in 1933, attention was directed to Naqsh-i Rustam, where Herzfeld traced the outer enclosure of the site and copied the inscription on the tomb of Darius I. Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.
