Date:

bulk 1929-1930
Scope and Contents:
The collection contains: twenty-nine silver gelatin photoprints mounted on Fome-Core, Masonite, and cardboard, ranging in size from 5-1/2" x 9-1/4" to 10-11/16" x 13-13/16"; three 5" x 7" unmounted silver gelatin photoprints; a scrapbook which originally contained 56 silver gelatin photoprints, ranging in size from 2" x 3" to 7-1/2" x 9-1/2"; and silver gelatin film negatives (presumably acetate) for the prints. The scrapbook includes a New York Daily News clipping about Rivers: "Builds a Bridge to Students" by Anthony Burton (dated May 12, 1970 by Rivers) with a photograph showing him speaking to a crowd, Most of the photographs depict the construction of the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings--iron workers on the job and relaxing during breaks, and pictures of the buildings at various stages of completion. Other subjects are: a demonstration to prevent World War II (1935), a color photoprint of the Civil Rights March and Demonstration in Washington, D.C. (1963), and two magazine clippings from a Soviet publication, New Times, in which Rivers's prize-winning "Self Portrait" (1930) was reproduced.

Most of these prints were made by Charles Rivers many years after the creation of the original negatives, probably ca.1970s 1980s. The collection is in generally good condition, except that many of the print surfaces are scratched.
Biographical / Historical:
Charles Rivers created a certain amount of confusion about his origins, whether accidentally or intentionally. Born Constantinos Kapornaros[1] (or Kostandinos Kapernaros)[2] in the small town of Vahos in Mani, an isolated area in the southern Peloponnesian region of Greece, on May 20, 1904, he emigrated to the United States as a child of five or six with his parents. His school record showed that he was enrolled in 1911 at the age of seven.[3] The family lived in Maine or New Hampshire, then Massachusetts, and later other locations in New York state. It is believed that his new name was derived from the Charles River in Boston.[4] The change may have been occasioned by a need to conceal his deep involvement in left-wing political and union activities.[5] Mr. Rivers settled in New York City in 1950 and resided there until 1993.[6] He sometimes identified his birthplace as Denver, Colorado,[7] but this may have been a fabrication or simplification, based on the fact that Greek church baptismal records were kept in Denver.[8] His sons James and Ronald believe that he never became an official American citizen. Late in life, in order to visit his birthplace, he was issued a passport, based on his school records, which stated that he was born in Denver. Rivers photographed the construction of the Chrysler Building (1929) and the Empire State Building (1930) in New York City. He was inspired to take up photography by seeing the work of the influential documentary photographer Lewis Hine, whose famous images of working children helped win passage of protective child labor laws. Rivers and Hine both photographed the Empire State Building and the men building it, yet Rivers apparently was unaware until years later that his idol had been present. Employed as an iron worker, Rivers traded his pail of tools for a Zeiss Ikon[9] camera during his lunch hour or when photographic opportunities arose. While the workers depicted in some of the photographs clearly are aware of the photographer's presence, Rivers's project presumably was conducted more or less surreptitiously. It is not known for certain if the paths of Rivers and Hine ever crossed, but his son Ron considers it unlikely: Hine photographed only the Empire State Building in connection with his "Men at Work" project,[10] not the earlier Chrysler Building, and Rivers did not work on the Empire State Building for a very long period. His self-portrait on the Empire State Building, "The Bolter-Up," may have been intended as a memento during one of his last days on that job.[11]

Rivers became unemployed in the Depression and consequently became involved in national efforts to create Social Security, unemployment insurance, and housing programs. These experiences apparently encouraged his active participation in politically leftist activities, as coverage about him in Soviet publications attests. A pacifist, in 1935 he was involved in demonstrations aimed at preventing World War II, and in the 1960s he took part in anti-Vietnam demonstrations and encouraged young people to continue such resistance.

In the 1950s Rivers worked in steel fabrication, in a chemistry lab as a technician, and briefly as a legislative aide for a New York state senator.

In 1986 Rivers submitted his 1930 self-portrait, posed on the Chrysler Building, to the International Year of Peace art contest sponsored by the New Times, published in Moscow: it was awarded a prize and diploma.

Mr. Rivers died in 1993, only two weeks after moving to Arlington, Texas to enter a nursing home near his sons' homes.

1. The page on Rivers in New York University=s Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives web site (http://laborarts.org/collections/item.cfm?itemid=82) --noted 5 June 2002), claims Rivers was born in 1905 and changed his name Ato resemble those of the Mohawk Indians working on the high steel of New York City=s skyscrapers and bridges".

2. This spelling is given in an e-mail from James Rivers to Helen Plummer, Aug. 19, 2002.

4. Telephone conversation between Ron Rivers and the author, 6 June 2002. Additional information was provided by Ron Rivers in electronic mail messages, 5 June and 12 June 2002.

5. James Rivers, op. cit.

6. Telephone conversation with Ron Rivers, 6 June 2002.

7. In a biographical statement for the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art (copy supplied by Helen Plummer), Charles Rivers called Denver his birthplace. The George Eastman House photographer database also included this apparently erroneous information, probably derived from the Amon Carter statement (telephone conversation with Helen Plummer, 3 June 2002).

8. Ron Rivers, telephone conversation, 6 June 2002.

9. Identified by Charles Rivers as the camera used in the skyscraper photographs: interview by Carol Sewell, "Photographer looked at U.S. from high view," Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dec. 27, 1986. Rivers also used a Rolleiflex, according to Ron Rivers (see note above), but the folding Zeiss Ikon camera would have been a more convenient addition to a lunchbox than the bulkier Rolleiflex. The collection negatives are not in the Rolleiflex square format, moreover.

Place:
Pan's Garden (Palm Beach, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Palm Beach County -- Palm Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet with a landscape plan sketch and a brochure about the garden. The garden is noted for its focus on Florida's native plants and for its siting in the midst of an urban environment.
General:
This six-tenth of an acre site in Palm Beach is devoted to Florida native plants and includes both upland and wetland habitats. The garden takes its name from a statue of Pan of Rohallion, designed by Frederick William MacMonnies, 1863-1937 in 1890, which graces the entrance pool. Another feature is the Casa Apava tile wall, rescued from an estate on South Ocean Boulevard. The garden's plantings of more than one-half acre include more than 300 species of native plants, many of which are endangered. Cultivars of native species are planted in seasonal displays as a means of highlighting choices for home gardening. Featured plants include a 100-year-old live oak, orchids, bromeliads, and a host of ever-blooming species.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: the Corwin family (former owners, ca. 1920s-1930s); the Masson family (former owners, ca. 1940s-1992); Sanchez & Maddux (landscape architects, 1992 to date); Leslie Divoll (architect, 1992 to date); Eric Stormer (horticulturist, 1994-1997); and Darrin Duling (garden coordinator, 1998 to date).

The folder includes photocopies.
General:
The gardens of the 18 acre property dating from the country place era include rare trees, flowering shrubs, a formal rose garden, a vineyard and oaks trees along the Delaware River that are more than 300 years old. There are numerous outbuildings including a gate house, carriage house and boat house. During the 1920s and 1930s the owners, Caroline Foerderer and her daughter Florence Foerderer Tonner redesigned the grounds with landscape architects James Bush-Brown and Thomas W. Sears, installing allées, terraces, fountains and garden sculpture.
The Delaware River front property was part of one thousand acres purchased in 1850 by Charles Macalester, Jr. (1798-1873) who sold off most of the land but kept this portion for a summer place, with a three story Italianate mansion he had built. His name for the property was Glengarry. After the death of his daughter Lily Macalester Laughton in 1891 the property was purchased by Robert and Caroline Foerderer, who had the house enhanced and enlarged in the classical revival style by architect William McAuley. Robert Foerderer died in 1903 before the renovations were finished but renamed the estate Glen Foerd, combining the original name with him family's name. Later the property was owned by daughter Florence Foerderer Tonner and her husband William, who established an award-winning cattle farm on the other side of Poquessing Creek which runs alongside the estate. Now known as Glen Foerd on the Delaware the grounds are open to public, the house can be toured, and the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles Macalester Jr. (former owner, circa 1850-1873); Lily Macalester Laughton (former owner, circa 1873-1891); Robert and Caroline Foerderer (former owners, 1895-circa 1915); William and Florence Foerderer Tonner (former owners, circa 1915-1971); William McAuley (architect of renovations, circa 1895-1903); James Bush-Brown and Thomas Sears (landscape architects, circa 1920s-1930s).
