Summary:
The Ken Druse Garden Photography Collection contains approximately 45,000 film transparency and 35mm slide images, dating from 1978 to 2005, of gardens, garden features, and flora photographed by garden writer and photographer Ken Druse. The photographic images document numerous private and public gardens throughout the United States and a few in Canada. Many have appeared in Druse's own books and articles as well as those by other writers. Approximately half of the collection is arranged according to specific garden, the other half by garden feature. A small portion of the collection consists of slide lectures given by Druse. Some images are identified with general captions and dates. Images documenting specific gardens are sometimes accompanied by handwritten notes, garden descriptions, and articles. Annotations appearing on certain images indicate the publication in which they appeared. The collection includes 'outtakes' or bracketed images that give insight into Druse's photo shooting process.
Biographical Note:
Ken Druse is a garden photographer and author of over a dozen books and numerous newspaper and magazine articles on garden-related topics. His images appear in his own books and articles as well as those by other writers. He received the Sarah Chapman Francis Medal for Literary Achievement from the Garden Club of America in 2004 for his garden writing. He highlights the work of numerous gardeners, garden designers, and horticulture experts on his website and podcast.

Druse's books include Making More Plants: The Science, Art, and Joy of Propagation; Planthropology: The Myths, Mysteries, and Miracles of My Garden Favorites; The Collector's Garden: Designing with Extraordinary Plants; and The Passion for Gardening: Inspiration for a Lifetime.

Unidentified Garden in Unknown Location

Collection Creator:
Adams, Molly, 1918-2003  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Unidentified Garden (United States)
United States of America
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
It is possible that the images associated with this folder actually depict two different gardens. One image shows a small, old farmhouse or cottage with a vine-covered porch. The other image is of a rail fence-enclosed garden of herbs, rhubarb, and other plants beyond which lies an orchard. The precise, professional labeling of the plants in this garden as well as its overall design suggests that it may have been associated with an historical or public garden site; this may also have been the case with the house depicted in the other image. However, without corroborating evidence the exact location of the property or properties remains unknown.
Related Materials:
Unidentified Garden in Unknown Location related holdings consist of 1 folder (2 safety film negatives)

General:
In 1978 the owners purchased a six-acre property with a Tudor-style house built in 1908 that, along with the gardens, had been neglected for 40 years. A dying apple orchard, fall-blooming species crocus and a few irises survived plus ivy and honeysuckle vines. The first garden they planted was a kitchen garden, followed by colorful azaleas as a foundation planting for the house. Their landscape architect, Alice Recknagel Ireys, removed the azaleas, famously saying they looked like a motel garden. The garden rooms Ireys designed include a formal walled perennial garden with a reflecting pool and small fountain, a crescent-shaped rose garden backed by a holly hedge and edged in front with dwarf boxwood; she connected these to the kitchen garden via an S-shaped lilac and peony walk. A small orchard was designed for the front of the property fenced by espaliered apples and pears. Two ponds were constructed with water draining from the smaller into a stream then down a waterfall to the larger pond to be pumped back to the first pond via an underground pipe. The former carriage yard was paved with flagstones placed far enough apart so groundcovers could grow between them. A swimming pool and tennis court also were designed by Ireys.

The owners replaced hybrid tea roses with antique, English and shrub varieties and filled in the lilac and peony walk with more plants for continuous bloom and fragrance from April to October. They planted a woodland walk with spring bulbs and ephemerals, shade-loving perennials and shrubs for summer bloom, and included other plants for their fall color. The courtyard garden has a dogwood tree, sunflowers growing between the flagstones, and five-foot-deep garden beds with mixed perennials and bulbs. Climbing vines were planted to adorn the walls of several outbuildings. Trees that were planted in front of the house are surrounded by "petticoats" of flowering perennials or annuals that grow into island beds to replace grass. Salty sea breezes were a challenge that has been mitigated by the holly hedge, four-foot tall stucco walls, and the woodlands. The owner is an award winning garden writer, lecturer and advisor to public gardens.

Persons associated with the garden include: Suzy and Carter Bales (1978- ), Alice Recknagel Ireys (1911-2000) (landscape architect, ca. 1980- ).

Summary:
The Thomas Warren Sears Photograph Collection documents examples of the design work of Thomas Warren Sears (1880-1966), a landscape architect and amateur photographer from Brookline, Massachusetts. Sears, who was based for most of his career in Philadelphia, designed a variety of different types of landscapes ranging from private residences, schools, and playgrounds to parks, cemeteries, and urban housing developments located primarily in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New York. In addition to some of Sears' design work, images in the collection document Sears' domestic and foreign travels, design inspirations, and family. The collection includes over 4,800 black and white negatives and glass lantern slides dated circa 1899 to 1930. While most images show private and public gardens, there are a significant number of unidentified views and views photographed in Europe during two trips he took there in 1906 and 1908. Few images are captioned or dated. In addition, there are over 50 plans and drawings, most notably for Balmuckety in Pikesville, Maryland and Reynolda in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and 3 monographs by or about Sears.

While most images show private and public gardens, there are a significant number of unidentified views and views photographed in Europe during two trips he took there in 1906 and 1908. Few images are captioned or dated. In addition, there are over 50 plans and drawings, most notably for Balmuckety in Pikesville, Maryland and Reynolda in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and monographs by or about Sears. Several of the glass lantern slides are duplicates of glass plate negatives in the collection. They apparently were chosen by Sears to illustrate some of his best design work, perhaps for lecture or client purposes.

In addition, there are 56 plans and drawings, most notably for Balmuckety in Pikesville, Maryland and Reynolda in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They range in date from 1917 to 1937 and from 1955 to 1964. Sears photographed some of his early plans; they are included in with the photographic images. Sears also photographed a handful of design plans by landscape architect Sibley Coslett Smith who practiced in Providence, Rhode Island; Sears and Smith shared the same business address there.

The Thomas Warren Sears Collection does not fully document the extent of Sears' design work. The use of glass plate negatives—which make up the bulk of the Thomas Warren Sears Collection—as a photography medium waned sometime during the first quarter of the twentieth century. As a result, the images in the Sears Collection capture examples of Sears' early to mid-career design work but they do not include jobs designed by Sears during the latter half of his design career.
Arrangement note:
The glass plate negatives were originally housed in numerous cardboard boxes manufactured for the sale of undeveloped glass plate negatives. Sears annotated the outside of the boxes with project or client names and/or locations, but the contents do not always match these labels. In addition, because very few of the glass plate negatives and lantern slides were labeled or captioned, it is not always evident where one job ended and another began if multiple projects were stored in the same carton. As a result, there are many instances in the Sears Collection where images have been inadvertently mislabeled because their identification is not apparent. Misidentified images are subject to correction as their proper identification is discovered. Each project has been assigned its own unique AAG job number based on its geographic origin. Those groups of images that have not been identified as to their location have been assigned a project number starting with 'SRS.' The collection is arranged into 3 series: 1) Photographic images (including glass plate negatives, film negatives, glass lantern slides, and photograph albums) 2) Plans and Drawings 3) Monographs
Biographical/Historical note:
Thomas Warren Sears was born in 1880 in Brookline, Massachusetts. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University in 1903 and Bachelor of Science degree in landscape architecture from the Lawrence Scientific School of Harvard in 1906. Sears was an amateur photographer who won awards for his photography while at Harvard. In 1915 his images were published in the monograph, Parish Churches of England. After graduation he worked for the firm of Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects for two years and then briefly practiced in Providence, Rhode Island. In 1913, Sears established a landscape design office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he spent the remainder of his professional career. Sears at one point was in a professional partnership; some of his design plans list the firm name of Sears and Wendell. He was made a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1921.

Sears designed many different types of landscapes ranging from private residences, schools, and playgrounds to parks, cemeteries, and urban housing developments. His designs were primarily located in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New York. Just a few of his private landscapes include Marengo in Easton, Maryland; Sunnybrook, the Isaac H. Clothier, Jr. estate in Radnor, Pennsylvania; and Balmuckety in Pikesville, Maryland. In 1915, Sears started work on Reynolda, a country estate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He generated design plans for the property intermittently over the next two decades. Reynolda's formal gardens, greenhouses, and acres of fields and woodlands subsequently became part of Wake Forest University.

During World War I, Sears designed Army camps in Battle Creek, Michigan and Spartanburg, South Carolina. He also helped lay out Langley Field, at that time an experimental aviation field in Hampton Roads, Virginia. In the 1940s, Sears designed the amphitheater at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania for concerts, outdoor performances, and other special events. During that decade he also worked on Colonial Revival gardens at Pennsbury, William Penn's country estate in Bucks County, Pennsylvania located by the Delaware River. Sears retired in 1964 and died in 1966.
