Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and site plans.
General:
In 1929, the Levis family commissioned architect Edmund B. Gilchrist to build two connected Norman style houses on approximately one acre for its extended family. Only one house remains today with a large garden designed by past and current owners which has evolved into an extensive series of garden rooms.
Upon entering the front courtyard flanked by a pair of watchful dragons under planted with sweet autumn clematis, there is a Japanese weeping maple and a border of Carefree Delight roses accentuating a holly hedge. Along the pathway to the front door are garden beds containing dwarf crabapples and sedum autumn joy edged with crimson pygmy barberry. Climbing hydrangea is on either side of the front door, and a dolphin fountain is to the right of an espaliered magnolia tree. Opposite the front door is a walkway through an arbor created by espaliered apple trees and climbing hydrangeas which leads one to a grassy field with massed borders of perennials and cutting gardens.
A doorway in the stone wall to the left of the front door opens to the rear yard featuring an azalea room and brick terrace edged with Japanese lilac trees, dwarf boxwood, allium, tulips, hosta and Knockoff roses. Wisteria is trained around the back of the house and there is a magnificent magnolia grandiflora. A woodland area room is filled with crocus and bleeding hearts in the spring followed by hosta, astilbe, Solomon seal and mayapples. Beyond this is the first of several gardens framed by yew hedges. The fishpond garden is a sunny perennial and rugosa rose border. Beyond the fishpond is a shade garden called the "mount" anchored by large birch trees with shrubs, ferns, geraniums and heuchera also planted. To the left of the fishpond garden is a stepped walkway edged with daylilies, leading to a swimming pool surrounded by endless summer hydrangeas and carefree Wonder roses. Opposite the pool is a garden area with Hawthorne trees under planted with cherry laurels, spirea and deutzia. Exiting through the garden door across from the "mount" there is a view of the kitchen garden filled with David Austin roses.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles H. Gale (landscape architect, 1989 to date); Mr. and Mrs. Levis (former owners, 1933-before 1985); Mr. and Mrs. Peter McCausland (former owners, 1985-1995); and Edmund B. Gilchrist (architect, 1933).

Manuscript and Pamphlet File

Scope and Contents:
For those who are searching for anthropologically substantive materials, special note should be made of the Manuscript and Pamphlet File. A potpourri of documents, the file includes correspondence, notes, drawings, maps, photographs, printed and processed materials, paper specimens, reports, writings, catalogs, motion picture film (now in the Smithsonian's Human Studies Film Archives), bibliographies, and other types of documents. Of concern is a wide variety of subjects such as anthropological specimens, museology and museums, Smithsonian history, archaeological and ethnological methods, exhibits, expeditions, history of anthropology, and so forth.

The file seems to have been maintained in the Division of Ethnology — in one document it was referred to as Herbert W. Krieger's morgue — and the subject matter is largely ethnological. Nevertheless, some documents relate to archeology and physical anthropology. The file also contains administrative materials, such as records relating to the Department of Anthropology's use of Work Projects Administration workers during the 1930s. In addition, the file is the main location of materials not generally accepted as being strictly anthropological in the modern sense. It includes, for example, material on period costumes, fish and fisheries, whaling, religions, armor, biblical studies, modern appliances, the seal industry, European music and musical instruments, lace, aeronautics, and other similar subjects. In addition, the file includes sets of papers of Edwin H. Hawley ,Walter Hough, Otis T. Mason, Talcott Williams and Thomas Wilson. Some documents, both primary and secondary research materials, concern the following cultural groups and geographic areas: Arabs, Bannock, Baubi, Blackfoot, British Columbia, Caddo, Carib, Chinook, Cochiti, Comanche, Cossacks, Cuna, Delaware, Diegueño, District of Columbia, Dyak, Eskimo, Europe, Fox, Goajira, Haida, Hawaii, Hittites, Hupa, India, Innuit, Iran, Ireland, Jamomadi, Japan, Jivaro, Kabyles, Kiowa, Kirghese, Klamath, Korea, Luiseño, Madagascar, Madiera, Maidu, Makah, Maori, Mataco, Maya, Micmac, Micronesia, Mission, Modoc, Mohave, Mongolia, Moro, Morocco, Naltunnetunne, Nanticoke, Narragansett, Navaho, New Guinea, Nez Perce, Nubia, Omaha, Onandaga, Osage, Oto, Papua, Parsee, Pawnee, Peru, Philippines, Pomo, Pueblo, Puerto Rico, Pygmies, Quichua, Quinaielt, Samoa, Sauk, Seminole, Seri, Shoshoni, Spain, Tahiti, Tesuque, Thailand, Texas, Tolowa, Tonga, Tulalip, Utah, Virginia, Washo, Wichita, Wintun, Yavapai, and Zuni.
