General:
This was the home of the late William Y. and Thelma Tipson Dear. In 1965 landscape architect Lois W. Poinier undertook an extensive design and installation project for the property, which is well-documented with both "before" and "after" images in the series. Poinier's plan featured an extensive herb and vegetable garden, complete with garden house, at the rear of the house, while the front of the property was highlighted by a tri-part brick walk with millstone insert. Molly Adams also photographed the property a number of years after the landscaping installation. Her images depict many aspects of the garden, including brick walkways, trellises, standards, and the overall form of the design.

The Clearing, formerly known as.
General:
During the Revolutionary era, the area was part of a farm. An estate, once known as The Clearing, was created on the site in 1889 by John Hornor Wisner. He built the present Colonial revival residence, which now serves as the administrative and educational center for the Arboretum. Mr. Wisner plotted the original gardens and Mrs. Wisner planted the first daffodils. Each April the daffodil display, enlarged from earlier times, is a major Arboretum attraction. In 1916, the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Reeves, hired a New York landscape architect to develop an overall design for the property. Mrs. Reeves was also a member of the Summit Garden Club. The Reeves family increased the daffodil plantings and, around 1925, started the rose garden. The Charles L. Reed family became the last private owners in the 1960s, adding the herb garden and creating the woodland trails.
The property became a public institution, the Reeves-Reed Arboretum, in 1974, when Summit citizens acted to protect the 12.5 acres of woodlands, glacial contours and dells, rolling lawns, and inspired gardens from encroaching development.
Persons associated with the garden include John and Isabelle Wisner (former owners, 1888-1918); Richard E. Reeves and Susie Graham Reeves (former owners, 1918-1968); Charles L. Reeves, Jr. and Ann Reeves Reed (former owners, 1968-1974); Calvert Vaux (landscape architect); Ellen Shipman (landscape architect); Carl F. Pilat (landscape architect, 1925); Babb, Cook & Willard (New York City, architect); Wodell & Cottrell (garden designers).

Summary:
The Lois W. Poinier Collection documents the work of Lois W. Poinier, a self-taught garden designer who designed scores of gardens, most of them in New Jersey.
Scope and Contents note:
The Lois W. Poinier Collection contains 1,089 35mm slides documenting before-and-after images of almost 100 gardens designed by garden designer and Garden Club of America member Lois W.

The collection includes some gardens designed by Poinier's mother, Helen Page Wodell, and aunt, Lois Page Cottrell, who practiced under the firm name of Wodell & Cottrell. The collection is particularly helpful as it shows the evolution of gardens under construction and in their 'finished' state.

The collection also includes an album of images documenting gardens owned by Lois W. Poinier and her mother, Helen Page Wodell in New Jersey and Connecticut as well as an extensive slide lecture and script compiled by Poinier entitled "Ninety Years in a Garden" that documents the story and evolution of three of those gardens in New Jersey. Another series of glass lantern slides of numerous gardens dating from the 1920s and 1930s was used extensively for garden lecture purposes by both women. Finally, there are images by Lois W. Poinier of numerous private and public gardens throughout the United States and the United Kingdom that she visited.

Poinier's design work was in New Jersey. She was a longtimestanding member of the Short Hills Garden Club in New Jersey and lectured on gardens and garden design.

General:
For this country property east of Pittsburgh Helen Page Wodell designed informal beds of perennials. Adjacent to the house were a flowering dogwood, low boxwood hedges, and an espalier. A rail fence separated the garden area from adjacent fields and woods. Although the garden's location was given as "Rolling Rock" when the images were donated, this is the name of a private club in Laughlintown, PA. Since the property was likely in the vicinity of the club, Laughlintown has been used as its geographic location.
Persons associated with the garden include: Helen Page Wodell (garden designer) and Mary Graham McCargo (1880-1969, former owner).

General:
For this site adjacent to woodlands Lois W. Poinier designed a stone stairway leading down from a porch to a grassy area. At the foot of the stairs a stone wall featured a fountain and fish pond accented by a sculpture of a cherub. A flagstone patio by the lawn was separated from it by a low stone wall. Surrounding the lawn was a garden border featuring azaleas, a dogwood, and other shrubs, providing a boundary between the house and the trees beyond. The property was probably located on Sherman Avenue.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lois W. Poinier (garden designer) and Harriet Herter (probable former owner). Although Poinier's records refer to a "Dr." Herter and wife as the project clients, his name has not been determined.

General:
Before and after images document this multi-faceted design and installation project dating between about 1956 and 1960. One part of Lois W. Poinier's work involved creation of three levels of grass terracing with a stone retaining wall and stairs. Providing a space for outdoor living, the terraces were accented by azaleas and included one of Poinier's signature fountains. A more significant reshaping of the site resulted in the construction of a swimming pool carved into the hillside. Additional retaining walls and dramatic stone stairs were constructed and the remaining hillside above the pool was planted with naturalized daffodils and shrubs. Utilizing a natural rock outcropping near the pool as a backdrop Poinier created yet another garden area of low plantings, lawn, and a sculpture of a childlike Diana with bow and arrow and squirrel. One image shows the front of the house in spring.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lois W. Poinier (garden designer, circa 1956-1960) and Mrs. William Hunter (former owner).
