Little House in the Big Woods (Mequon, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Ozaukee County -- Mequon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, plant list, and photocopies of newspaper articles.
General:
The eleven acre property includes a country Cape Cod style house, nine acres of hardwood trees, perennial and vegetable gardens designed by landscape architect Judith Stark (ASLA), a prairie, fairy garden, frog pond with a water garden and a mowed meadow next to a volley ball field. Stone walls separate the perennial garden from the prairie and set off play areas, and four custom wooden gates define access to the prairie. The vegetable garden alongside the house has rustic fencing, a rose bed and a rustic rose arbor. The perennial garden displays flowers suited to the climate, while on the other side of a stone wall in the 1.5 acres of prairie the flower are less organized. Woodlands include an American beech grove and a spruce grove as well as a treehouse and a 'Winnie the Pooh' tree. The fairy garden is set among spring bulbs on pebble paths and brought inside during the winter. Each year the property becomes a 'county fair' when the grandkids and their friends bring pet animals for 'judging' and parades.
The semi-rural location included woods, farm fields and hunting preserve with a cabin in a 167 acre tract before this house was built by a previous owner. The current owners converted the garage into a library, changed windows and added a free standing garage.
Persons associated with the garden include: Otto Kuehn (former landowner, 1940); Peter O'Malley (former owner, 1979-1986); Richard Keegan (former owner, 1986-1988); Judith Stark, ASLA (landscape architect, 1990s); Prairie Nursery (prairie developer, 1995).

A Dallas Family Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes an information sheet, a features plan, a slide view plan, a slide list, plant list and a magazine article.
General:
A family's private residence built in 2001 features two mature live oak trees that were left in place during construction of the house, and now shade the entrance and interior courtyard. The 2.5 acre property is long and narrow, so numerous trees were planted for privacy and shade, including pecan, magnolia, elm, pine, and live oak, with shade tolerant shrubs planted below. There are many water features, including a fountain court, wall fountains in the courtyards, a stream and pond for the children that were channeled from Turtle Creek, and a swimming pool. A tree house for the children is hidden in a grove of trees. Architect Eric J. Smith, architect/designer David A. Easton, and landscape designer Warren Hill Johnson, RLA, of Fallcreek Gardens, Inc., all worked on the property.
The property includes ample lawns for recreation, an elaborate playhouse, tennis court, gazebo, and guest house. Faux bois furniture is placed in wooded areas where the children play. Bird houses sited on tall poles are replicas of old Texas mission churches. There are brick paths and paving stones set in grass that provide access to outdoor recreation and entertainment. Vertical gardens were planted on the walls around the house for their cooling effect.
Persons associated with this property include Warren Hill Johnson of Fallcreek Gardens, Inc. (landscape architect, 1997 - 2001); Eric J. Smith (architect, 1997-2001) and David A. Easton (designer/architect, 1997-2001).

Ravine Garden (Dallas Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and an article.

Ravine Garden is a two-acre private residence in Dallas, Texas, with a deep ravine and creek running through the property, with a hidden rose garden across the ravine that is accessed via stone steps and paths. There are several seating areas within the garden for dining and visiting. A Camellia House (greenhouse) designed by Dallas architect Enslie O. Oglesby sits atop a round concrete cistern that provides water for the plants inside. One area of the garden has children's play equipment which the owners will change eventually.
The carport planted with wisteria and climbing roses is modeled after an arbor the owners admired in Italy. Family heirlooms are featured in the garden, including a monogrammed iron gate and a Chinese sculpture.
The owner's wanted a garden that suits the topography of the property. As such, they have left woodlands intact by the ravine and as a screen for the children's play area. The rose garden was planted for beauty, scent and cutting.
Persons associated with the garden include Naud Burnett & Partners (landscape architect of rose garden, dates unknown); Boyd Heiderich Bargas, Inc. (landscape architect for front, patio and terrace gardens, dates unknown); Enslie O. Oglesby (architect for Camellia greenhouse, dates unknown).

United States of America -- Texas -- Smith -- Tyler
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and photocopies of images.
General:
Royal Oaks represents one of the premier gardens of Tyler, Texas, dating to the mid-1930s - the unique era of the oil-drilling boom in eastern Texas. The gardens are located in Tyler's historic azalea district, adding to their heritage and community preservation status. From azaleas to dogwoods to a historic Black Gum, the elements are a community treasure.
Major plantings include Live Oaks, Magnolias, Dogwoods, Japanese Bloodgood Maple and Crepe Myrtles. Flowering plants include Camellias, Azaleas, Hydrangeas, Wisteria and Forsythia. St. Augustine grass, Mondo grass, native Yupons and other greenery complete the tableau.
Special features include the herb garden with Bay Tree topiary and sculptures of a little boy playing the flute, a metal heron and distinctive bird bath. The badminton courts were added in 1939, thus generating a Badminton Club that exists to this day. The original gazebo was hand-carried by eight men, relocating it when the swimming pool addition was under way. The gazebo is now draped and serves as a bathhouse in summer. The original barn, which housed Shetland ponies for many years, still stands. Visiting dignitaries have included J. Edgar Hoover, Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Byars (former owners, mid-1930s-1979); Noel Pullam (landscape architect, 1970s); Lambert's (landscape designer, 1930s); Arabella Gardens (landscape features, 1990s- ); Breedlove Nursery (landscape features, 1950s).

General:
A few evergreen trees are all that presently remain of the Homewood garden, which dated back to the 1920's. The original 223 acres of the property were purchased by Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. in 1946. A pool was added to the propery in the 1950's, with shrubs and flower beds at its edges. A split rail fence and a garden gate defined the front of the garden which featured and arbor, and roses, boxwood, peonies, and spring bulbs. Beyond the garden, a children's play area was situated next to a small orchard. In it's prime, the property was a working dairy farm and also had conformation show horses; the large stable no longer exists but the dairy barn remains standing. In 2000 the Pettibone family sold the property and the unattended home subsequently burned down in 2010.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich Dudley (former owners, 1930's-1946?); the Wyatt family (1930s-1946?), Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. (former owners, 1946-ca. 1989?); Mr. John Pettibone Jr. (former owner, 1989-2000); and Mr. Bill Budd (grounds keeper, 1946-).

General:
In 1970 the owners built their house on two and one-quarter acres in a new subdivision on land that had been agricultural, and their growing family played sports in the yard. In the late 1980s the owners began changing the landscape and house to reflect their interests, especially after studying English gardens at Cambridge University, England, and many visits to the recreated colonial gardens in Williamsburg and Monticello in Virginia. The property was planned and planted as a whole, with formal gardens including a kitchen garden replicating the Taliaferro-Cole garden in Williamsburg with its multi-level picket fence. The garden inside the fence is rectilinear with an armillary sphere in the center watched over by the sculpture "The Dog" by Glenna Goodacre. The straight-edged beds are planted in flowers and vegetables, espaliered apple and pear trees and pollarded linden trees along the fence. This part of the property is conceived on a short axis that ends in an obelisk. The long axis of the plan starts at the street and traverses through an alleĢe of crabapple trees towards a reproduction 18th century statue called "Taste." An outbuilding that is used for storage copies the design of a colonial kitchen. A tennis court is flanked by fruit orchards, and an alpine trough garden leads to the garage.
The paths in the fenced garden are comprised of silica and brick, which along with tall hedges, create a micro-climate in the courtyard that is ten degrees warmer than outside the fence. Thus the planting season starts earlier and last longer, and species such as southern magnolia can be grown. Although most of the construction and garden ornaments reflect the colonial style of this garden there are two Lutyens style benches inside the fenced garden from the Arts & Crafts period, and a brightly painted cottage Windsor chair for resting. Rose pots, painted red, are hoisted on top of poles add height and whimsy to the garden.
To keep the garden looking fresh big plants are replaced, especially with one that have sentimental value to the owners. The garden has been photographed, written about and studied by horticultural groups, and the owners are active in local gardening organizations.
Persons associated with the garden include: Tracy and Maryann Griswold (former owners, 1925-1967); Glenna Goodacre (sculptress, 1999).

General:
Prior to 1978 the 1.7 acre wedge shaped parcel was primarily woodlands on a hillside, part of an earlier farm and orchard, with two ridges and a small creek. One ridge was left as found, with matures trees: oak, maple, tulip poplar, wild cherry and hemlock plus ferns and wild roses. By 1980 the house had been built on a leveled platform with only a few willow trees left on that site. Conifers were planted first, including Austrian pine, hemlock, larch, arborvitae and juniper, with English ivy, pachysandra, day lilies, Shasta daisies, Japanese iris and hydrangea transplanted from a previous home's garden. Deciduous trees were planted next including fruit trees, white birch, Japanese maples and crab apples, and crown vetch was planted as a ground cover to hold the slopes and provide playing fields for children. In 1995 the vetch was replaced with ornamental gardens of perennials, shrubs and bulbs with rocks and winding paths strategically placed on the slopes.
Since the gardens climb the hillside to the woodlands a hand-built arbor was added in 1998 to act as a gateway between the cultivated and naturalized areas. Plants in the cultivated gardens include many hosta varieties, azaleas, rhododendron, rose of Sharon and peonies; vines include trumpet vine, clematis and wisteria; and bulbs include daffodils, tulips, iris, crocuses and snowdrops. There are small gardens at the front and back doors of the house and outside the garage that include roses, climbing roses, calla lilies, junipers, chrysanthemums, holly and pieris Japonica. Other features include gazing globes, a woodlands fort, birdhouses and a cluster of painted rocks for a fairy garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Gary Johnston (garden design).

Biographical / Historical:
Joe Adams was born on April 11, 1924. A native of Los Angeles, California, he wanted to work in radio at a very young age. Despite the racial discrimination that existed in the radio and television industry, Adams pressed on, practicing public speaking in vacant lots. He also gained confidence serving domestically as a pilot with the 332nd Tuskegee Airmen Fighter Group during World War II. After his time in the service, Adams was able to get occasional radio work at Hollywood stations such as KFWB, KPAS, KFOX, and KGFJ. In 1946, Adams got the chance to host a fifteen minute radio show at KOWL. He also married his wife, Emma Millhouse, that year.

Within two years, Joe Adams was hosting the number one-rated live radio show in Los Angeles, and the show had expanded from fifteen minutes to five hours. Adams was also able to sign on fifty-six sponsors for his show, a number previously unheard of. This was the beginning of a career that would last for more than twenty years.

During the 1940s and 1950s, Adams garnered success both on the radio, the small screen, and the big screen. He had two television shows, Adams Alley and Joe Adams Presents, made famous for the many music and film stars that Adams featured. Some of the celebrities Adams hosted included Jerry Lewis, Duke Ellington, The Trenier Twins, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Count Basie. Ellington played two themes for Adams's shows, "Take the 'A' Train" and "Smada" ("Adams" backwards). Both songs were written by jazz great, Billy Strayhorn. In 1954, Adams fronted a band that was part of the first USO tour to entertain troops stationed in Korea. Among the band members was actress-turned-singer, Shirley Haven.

Adams opened a nightclub, Pigalle, which was wildly popular in Los Angeles. In addition to being one of the first radio personalities to do a simulcast radio and live show by appearing live at the Paramount Theater in downtown Los Angeles, Adams was the first African American to be featured in an on-air, West Ccoast network radio show.

Adams appeared in nearly thirty movies, including the hit Carmen Jones (1954), where he played Husky Miller, and the original version of The Manchurian Candidate (1962). In 1958, Adams became the first African American to receive the Foreign Correspondents Award for Outstanding New Actors from the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association. The Foreign Correspondents Award would later be called The Golden Globe. In 1957, Adams retired from radio and television to star in the Broadway play, Jamaica, with Lena Horne and Ricardo Montalban.

Adams made many famous friends during his career in broadcasting and film; one of the best known was Ray Charles. After inviting Adams on tour in 1959, Charles asked Adams to become his manager. Adams agreed (although to date, Adams humorously claims, he was never formally hired), and he managed Charles until the musician's death in 2004. Adams helped position Charles for fame through such venues as a long line of Pepsi commercials and the creation of both a Ray Charles studio and a company. Adams even arranged for Charles to tour in South Africa, and he served as both the producer of the Ray Charles Show and the wardrobe designer for Charles and his backup singers, the Raelettes.

Adams also acquired expertise outside the broadcasting and music business. He became a licensed commercial pilot and an authority in law. His philanthropy and his tireless work for African Americans and inner-city communities have been recognized by many organizations, from the Egyptian Shriners to the Urban League. Even his home town of Los Angeles has recognized Adams's efforts, making March 14th the official "Joe Adams Day."
