Summary:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 3,100 photographic images of private and public gardens throughout the United States, as well as some from foreign countries, dating from 1899 to 1963. Many of these images, generated for Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), were used to illustrate trade catalogs published by the firm as well as journal and newspaper articles. The collection also contains color records that were used as reference aids during the printing process, plant patents, and various publications of the McFarland Company.
Scope and Contents note:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 2,700 black and white mounted photographs, 448 glass lantern slides, and 41 glass plate negatives of gardens throughout the United States dating from 1899 to 1963. A small number of images show gardens in Austria, Canada, England, Mexico, Scotland and Wales. Many of the images, which were generated and used by the J. Horace McFarland Company to illustrate trade catalogs and journal and newspaper articles, indicate the publication(s) in which they appeared. A series of portraits of rosarians, many of them featured in Modern Roses 6, rounds out the image collection. The McFarland Collection also includes color records, plants patents, and miscellaneous publications. Color records are plant 'portraits' that were painted by McFarland Company staff artists in watercolor. They were referenced by the printing department in order to render illustrations of plants in colors as close to the originals as possible. The plant patents are patents for plants issued by the United States Patent Office. They include the plant name, source, filing and patent dates, patent number, and growth characteristics. Most are accompanied by a colored image of the plant identified in the patent. The miscellaneous publications are various pamphlets and booklets published by the J. Horace McFarland Company.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 5 series:

1) Garden images (including mounted photographs, glass plate negatives, and glass lantern slides)

2) Portraits of Rosarians

3) Color Records

4) Plant Patents

5) Miscellaneous Publications
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. J. Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an influential civic leader, author, publisher, horticulturist, and authority on roses. His printing company, Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It published many of the seed and nursery trade catalogs in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the first to apply color processes to commercial print applications. J. Horace McFarland Company staffers photographed thousands of different gardens and plant specimens throughout the United States. These images were used to illustrate numerous nursery and seed catalogs, journals and books. Among its many services, the firm sold various themed lectures illustrated by sets of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

McFarland wrote over 200 articles in popular journals as well as a dozen books on roses and gardening. He served as the first president of the American Civic Association from 1904-1924 and led several local and national campaigns to protect communities and scenic areas from urban blight and overdevelopment including the city of Harrisburg and Niagara Falls. McFarland, who served as the president of the American Rose Society (1930-1932) and helped establish a standardized rose identification and registration method, used the gardens on his own 2.5 acre property in Harrisburg, "Breeze Hill," to test hundreds of varieties of roses and plant cultivars. "Breeze Hill" was used as the backdrop for many photographs taken by McFarland's firm.

General:
The property has changed hands and size many times since a wooden farmhouse was built in 1845; since 1980 the current owners have developed a cottage garden on their one acre while preserving remnants of the 19th century New England farm. Historic features include an arbor with Concord grapes, European white elm planted in 1916, Northern spy apples in the fruit orchard, a patch of rhubarb, a lilac hedge planted over an old granite foundation, partial spirea hedge, fieldstone wall, a soapstone sink, a small barn used now for tool storage with a study in the old loft, and antique farm machinery displayed in a field. Contemporary additions include a colorful border with landscape roses, lilies and shrubs backed by a row of boulders that opens the garden to view from the street. In front of the house there are beds of perennials on either side of the walkway to the front door rather than lawn. Spring bulbs, ferns, herbs, milkweed and a lilac in each of four corners surround the house. New fruit trees have been planted within the historic orchard, and there is an annual neighborhood cider pressing party using an antique cider press. A screened gazebo is sited within a garden with post and rail fences bordered by the grape arbor and peony hedges and exited through a pergola covered by honeysuckle. The kitchen garden, blueberry patch and two beds of perennial flowers comprise the gazebo garden. Native wildflowers in the meadow beyond and native vines, shrubs and trees planted in the farther reaches of the property help maintain its historic character.
During the Country Estate era in the early years of the twentieth century a former owner amassed surrounding properties to the size of the original farms, about 100 acres. A manor house was built, with landscaping by Ernest W. Bowditch that included the European white elm and a defunct butternut allée on this acre. The gardens are used by the current owner, who writes a gardening column for the Boston Globe, to teach both gardening and conservation of Massachusetts heritage.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
"The city of Tombouctou (Timbuktu) first won renown in the fourteenth century when Mansa Musa, the converted Malian king who made the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1324-27, returned via Timbuktu and ordered the construction of the DjinguereBer (Jingerebir) Mosque. Over the centuries, the DjinguereBer Mosque underwent many reconstructions and spatial reorganizations. The pyramidal tower-cum-minaret on the earliest side, now completely enveloped by subsequent extensions, innumerable re-renderings and stairway access, may very well have initially been a mausoleum or tomb which was subsequently expanded into a solid built-up earthen mass. It stands in balanced contrast with the conical pillar form which marks the currently extant semi-circular mihrab." [Frishman M. and Khan H.-U., 1994: The Mosque. Thames and London Ltd.]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17,1970.

"The city of Tombouctou (Timbuktu) first won renown in the fourteenth century when Mansa Musa, the converted Malian king who made the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1324-27, returned via Timbuktu and ordered the construction of the DjinguereBer (Jingerebir) Mosque. Over the centuries, the DjinguereBer Mosque underwent many reconstructions and spatial reorganizations. The pyramidal tower-cum-minaret on the earliest side, now completely enveloped by subsequent extensions, innumerable re-renderings and stairway access, may very well have initially been a mausoleum or tomb which was subsequently expanded into a solid built-up earthen mass. It stands in balanced contrast with the conical pillar form which marks the currently extant semi-circular mihrab." [Frishman M. and Khan H.-U., 1994: The Mosque. Thames and London Ltd.]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17,1970.
