Archival materials
Place:
Casa del Carnevale (Sarasota, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Sarasota County -- Sarasota
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 36 digital images. The folder includes worksheets and historic information about land development in the Florida Keys.
General:
The Italianate Revival house built in 1937 has been expanded by the current owners who are descended from the original owners, on a property of approximately one acre. Many specimen plants that were collected between 1950 and 1990 have been retained and rearranged to accommodate expansions to the house. With new plantings added the gardens emphasize the colors, specimen variety and textures in subtropical trees, shrubs, vines and flowering plants. There are eleven different varieties of palms, including the mature royal palms that tower over the street front of the property, and shorter pygmy date palms used as foundation plants under balconies. Bromeliads grow in enormous urns on either side of the original front door. Flowering vines that add color year round include Mexican flame vine, bougainvillea, stephanotis, Confederate jasmine and angel's trumpet. Dense growth for a jungle-like effect is encouraged and minimizes water usage.
The property was purchased from the John Ringling Estates, and references to the involvement of family members in the circus and carnivals is found in garden features. A mobile sculpture "Circus" by Frederick Prescott is sited outside the dining room window. A mosaic on the wall of one of the additions depicts Ringling Brothers clown Emmet Kelly and family member, plant collector, puppeteer and previous owner Marion McKennon. Her husband Joseph McKennon initiated the grassroots campaign Save Our Bays to prevent dredging to create more building sites in the Florida Keys. A park and bird sanctuary was established on some of the new ground rather than housing. In 1991 this property was designated a historic landmark by the City of Sarasota.
Persons associated with the garden include John Ringling and Owen Burns of John Ringling Estates (former owners 1917-1927); Mr. and Mrs. Charles Leigh (former owners, 1927-1969); Mr. and Mrs. Joseph McKennon (former owners, 1969-2002); Dwayne Henderson (former owner, 2002-2003); Paul Bergman (builder, 1936-1937); Wm. Thorning Little (architect for renovation and additions, 2004-2007 and 2003-2008); Daniel Patrick Ball (builder, 2003-2008); Michael L. Gilkey, Jr. (landscape architect, 2005-2007); Brian K. Desormier (landscape installation and maintenance (2005- ); Frederick Prescott (sculptor); Dimitar Kasabov (mosaic artist).

United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Philadelphia County -- Philadelphia
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. Mrs. F. Hemsley Levis (former owners, 1933-before 1985); Mr. and Mrs. Peter McCausland (former owners, 1985-1995); and Edmund B. Gilchrist (architect, 1933).

Summary:
Ethel Cutler Freeman was an amateur Seminole specialist and research associate with the American Museum of Natural History. Her papers also reflect field work among the Arapaho, Shoshoni, Navaho, Pueblo, Hopi, Kickapoo, and people of the Virgin Islands, the Bahama Islands, and Haiti, and the music and chants of Africa, including those of the Maasai, Zulu, and Pygmies. A small amount of material relates to the Hoover Commission on Indian Affairs, of which Freeman was a member. Correspondents include several Seminole Indians and government officials, personal acquaintances, organizations, and associates of the American Museum of Natural History.
Scope and Contents:
These papers reflect the anthropological interests of Ethel Cutler Freeman. The papers in this collection include her notes and diaries, published articles, unfinished manuscripts, and source materials. The bulk of the collection is material relating to the Seminole Indians of Florida.

Mrs. Freeman also made several trips to the Southwest and Mexico to study such tribes as the Arapaho, Shoshone, Navajo, Pueblo, and Hopi. There is substantial information from these studies included in this collection. She also made less extensive studies of various other cultures in the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and Haiti. In 1950, she studied tribal music and chants of several African tribes and the material from these studies forms the major portion of Series 7.

The collection also contains several sound recordings made by Freeman and numerous photographs, negatives, and slides. During rehousing, additional materials including index cards and notebooks from field trips were located and incorporated into the collection. A small amount of material relates to the Hoover Commission on Indian Affairs, of which Freeman was a member.

Correspondents include several Seminole Indians and government officials, personal acquaintances, organizations, and associates of the American Museum of Natural History as well as Dean Amadon, Richard Archbold, Conrad M. Arensberg, Dana W. Atchley, Jacques Barzun, Ruth Benedict, Leonard J. Brass, Louis Capron, Frances Densmore, Margery S. Douglas, John W. Griffin, A.J. Hanna, Ronald F. Lee, Margaret Mead, Robert Cushman Murphy, Kenneth W. Porter, Harry L. Shapiro, Howard Sharp, Frank Speck, Charlton W. Tebean, and Clark Wissler.

Although the majority of the collection spans the years 1934 to 1972, there are some items with dates that fall outside of this range. Some published materials are dated as early as 1822 and one note is dated 1975 and was added to the collection after Freeman's death in 1972. The folders containing these items have been dated accordingly, but these outlier dates have not affected the dates of the sub-series or series.

Please note that the contents of the collection and the language and terminology used reflect the context and culture of the time of its creation. As an historical document, its contents may be at odds with contemporary views and terminology and considered offensive today. The information within this collection does not reflect the views of the Smithsonian Institution or National Anthropological Archives, but is available in its original form to facilitate research.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 15 series: (1) Biographical information and miscellaneous personal papers, 1939-1971; (2) Correspondence, 1936-1972; (3) Manuscripts, 1936-1971; (4) Source Material, 1934-1970; (5) Seminole Indians, 1934-1972; (6) North American Indians, 1936-1971; (7) Cultures other than North American Indian, 1943-1970; (8) Meetings, 1956-1968; (9) Printed materials, 1936-1972; (10) Pamphlets, 1935-1970; (11) Population and Material Culture, 1939, 1951-1963; (12) Sound recordings, 1940-1958, 1969-1970; (13) Lists of Photographs, 1939-1970; (14) Photographs, 1936-1971; (15) Index Cards, undated
Biographical Note:
Ethel Cutler Freeman was born in 1886 in Morristown, New Jersey. Freeman was the daughter of a prosperous family, which gave her the opportunity to study abroad in England at Mademoiselle Marie Souvestre's Academy for girls. After studying in England, Freeman returned to the United States and was married to Leon S. Freeman, a New York broker, in 1909.

By 1934, Freeman had become bored with the typical social activities available to her; while discussing the matter with a friend, Marcellus Hartley Dodge, she described herself as having a "brain full of cobwebs." Dodge, a former trustee at Columbia University, suggested that Freeman enroll in some courses at Columbia. Acting on Dodge's advice, Freeman started taking graduate courses in psychology and sociology at Columbia University, but soon became fascinated with anthropology. During her studies at Columbia, Freeman spent time in the western United States studying the Arapaho and Shoshone while her husband recuperated from a horse riding accident; it was at this point that she developed a taste for field work and an interest in Native American cultures. After completing her studies, Freeman decided that she wanted to study the Seminole people of Florida, near whom she and her family owned a winter home in Naples.

Back on the East Coast, Freeman met Dr. Clark Wissler, then Curator of the Indian Division of the American Museum of Natural History. Wissler was supportive of Freeman's aspirations to continue her anthropological studies, but balked at her expressed interest in the Seminole, whom at that time had a reputation for not being open to contact with outsiders. Undaunted, Freeman contacted W. Stanley Hansen, the man in charge of Seminole settlement; after repeated correspondence with Hansen convinced him she was no mere hobbyist, he agreed to help her make connections within the Seminole community.

Freeman made two visits to the Big Cypress Reservation for the American Museum of Natural History with a government representative before taking her 14-year-old daughter, Condict, and 12-year-old son, Leon Jr., for an extended stay with a group of Seminoles at the heart of the Everglades in February of 1940. After that first winter stay with the Seminoles, Freeman spent virtually every winter living within their remote communities and studying their culture. Over time, Dr. Wissler became impressed by Freeman's thorough and insightful reports and analysis of her findings among the Seminoles and got the American Museum of Natural History to back her winter field studies. Eventually Freeman's work gained her a reputation for being an expert on Seminole culture, which often placed her in the role of consultant to government agencies on issues dealing with Seminole and broader Native American concerns.

As a result of her long acquaintance with the Seminoles, Freeman also became interested in how different groups of Native Americans and other cultures adapted to changes brought about by contact with modern society. Freeman made several trips to the Southwestern United States and Mexico to study such tribes as the Arapaho, Shoshone, Navajo, Pueblo, Choctaw, and Hopi; she also made less extensive studies of various other cultures in the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and Haiti. In 1950, Freeman went to Africa to study tribal music and chants of several tribes. Much later, in 1968, the American Museum of Natural History sent Freeman to Portugal to study local costumes.

In the 1940s, Freeman took part in publishing studies for the Department of Agriculture about the Seminoles and worked as an advocate for the Navajo, who at that time were in tense relations with the United States government over their living conditions. From 1947 to 1957, Freeman worked as a representative for the American Civil Liberties Union on the National Coordinating Committee for Indian Affairs; she also was a member of the Indian Rights Committee for the American Civil Liberties Union from 1946 to 1966. From 1948 to 1950, Freeman served as a member of the Hoover Commission for Reorganization of Government within the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Throughout her studies in the field and her activities as an advocate for Native American rights, Freeman published her work frequently and gave many talks at a variety of conferences and special events. In 1964, Freeman traveled to Moscow to deliver her paper, "The Correlation between Directed Culture Change and Self Determination," at the 7th International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences; she attended the same conference series the following year in Japan to deliver another paper, entitled "Lawlessness in an Indian Tribe as a Microcosm of a World Trend." Freeman continued visiting and studying the Seminoles in Florida late into her career, making her last visit the year before her death.

Ethel Cutler Freeman died on July 14th, 1972.
