Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.

McDonald Garden, formerly known as.
General:
Since 1940 the gardens of this 1.75 acre property have been designed and filled with unusual specimen trees and flowering shrubs, then redesigned by a second owner equally committed to plant collecting who wanted to maintain the early gardens as much as possible. The initial design included a broad brick terrace behind the house that overlooked a sweeping lawn bordered by beds containing perennials, shrubs and trees. A rock garden marked the transition from the cultivated gardens to a native woodlands on the steep slope to the Willamette River. Behind the brick wall along the street there was a hedge of arborvitae and rhododendron had been planted along the brick wall at the far end of the terrace. A glass and brick gazebo stood in the front courtyard, topped with a hummingbird weather vane by sculptor Keith Jellum. When the property changed hands in 2002 all these features were changed too: the overgrown arborvitae were replaced with large-leafed boxwood, too tall rhododendron that blocked the view from the house were relocated, the crumbling gazebo was removed, and the hummingbird weathervane was mounted on a stand in an island bed of seasonal plantings where it can spin with the wind. The mature specimen trees including paper bark maple, Ponderosa pine, several varieties of magnolia, Garry oak, dawn redwood and a wheel tree remained but new beds were designed and planted with hellebores, hosta, fuchsias, clematis, rhododendrons, peonies, dwarf conifers and arum varieties. A new shade garden called the grotto replaced failing grass, a new green house and four bin composting center were built. The rock garden was augmented with steps and additional plantings, and wide gravel paths were laid for touring as well as working in the perennials beds that border the lawn.
Originally the 1.3 acres that were cultivated were conceived as parkland and featured rare plant material. A garden room in a warmer microclimate known as the Chilean garden was kept and included a windmill palm, swamp cypress and other semi-tropical plants; a crepe myrtle and pomegranate were espaliered on the garage wall along one side. Three copper bowl fountains of Greco-Roman design placed in the front and side courtyards were connected to a recirculating water pump in the basement of the house. The brick walls surrounding the terrace were perforated, a signature design of the original landscape architects Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver and the gazebo built on a curved brick wall in the front court was a stand-out feature. The parkland was planted so there would be open views from the house and terrace of Mount Saint Helens and the Willamette River.
Persons associated with the property include Sir James and Lady McDonald (former owners, 1940-2002); Susan and John Bates (former owners, 2002-2015); Elizabeth Lord (1887-1976) and Edith Schryver (1901-1984) (landscape architects, 1940); Ernest Tucker (landscape architect, 1977); Marsha Matschek (landscape designer, 1975- );Clark Matschek (landscape architect, 1996); Conrad Hahn (head gardener, 1950); Ernest Meyer (architect, 1942); Charles Voorhis (architect, 1977); John Storrs (architect, 1960); Echo Cole (head gardener, 1996- ); Gilbert Meigs (engineer, 1978); Jay Wesley Miner (garden designer and head gardener, 2006- ); Withey Price (garden design, 2004); Megan Galaher (garden designer, 2014); Martha Schneikert (steel garden structures, 2006); John Buttrell (tree pruning, 2006- ); Blake Thomas (tree pruning, 2006- ).

Scope and Contents:

General:
This southern garden of approximately one acre has evolved through three generations of one family. Its current form began to take shape in the late 1980s with the construction of a conservatory off the living room of the home, which resulted in the garden becoming the focal point of the house. The same architect, Lewis A. Graeber, III, then designed a pool, walks, and renovations to the guest cottage. Although a few old trees and hollies were saved, a new garden plan took shape to reflect one of the owner's fascination with the elements of form, texture, line, and space. The result was a design intended to contrast stark, linear branches against evergreen geometric forms for winter interest. Sculptural silhouettes of styrax trees juxtaposed with mounded boxwoods give the garden a sense of boldness and purpose, a contrast even more dramatic in winter. The trees are arranged to form a tunnel that draws the eye to a fountain. Just beyond the fountain is a lush layering of evergreens that entices the viewer to slow down and experience the peacefulness of the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Lewis A. Graeber, III (architect, 1988-1998); Jimmy Graham (designer, 1987 to date); Jerry Attaway (horticulturist, 1999 to date); and Thomas Woodward (sculptor, 2000).

Wellford Garden (Memphis, Tennessee)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, photocopies of articles about the garden, and additional information.
General:
The Wellford Garden is located on less than one acre in Memphis, TN. Modeled after an english cottage garden with added influences from the American South, the property features a three-level backyard comprised of three outdoor rooms and has a great variety of plantings including trees, shrubs, vines, groundcovers, bulbs, perennials and annuals, with fine tuning adjustments made annually. Incorporating the shifting colors of plantings through the seasons, fragrant plants and the sounds of the water feature, the assorted elements of the garden combine to create a sanctuary that appeals to all of the senses. There is a good balance of sun and shade, and the shade from the west in the afternoon is abundant, an element critical to southern gardens.
The first outdoor room features the lower terrace, situated outside of the Master bedroom, is furnished with an umbrella and tables for entertaining plus an assortment of pots of blooming plants. Stairs lead to an upper level and another pathway, surrounded by ground cover and azaleas, branches off to the side terrace which features a hot tub and an outdoor fireplace.
A formal garden serves as the second room whose focal point is a lily pond surrounding a sculpture, a rusted Cor-Ten steel castle by Leonard Delonga. Goldfish reside in the lily pond which serves as a moat for the castle. The resulting marriage of the sculpture and pond are exceptional in concept and scale. In addition to the formal garden, the second outdoor room features a raised flower bed showcasing a collection of roses and a nearby metal arbor covered with Akebia serves as an entry point between the back yard and fountain area. The third outdoor room features a zoysia lawn with a wood gazebo and several pathways leading to a woodland setting and other small sheltered areas. The garden is primarily cared for by the owners of the property, who have have gained recognition from the Garden Conservancy for their exceptional private garden and offer tours in an event called "Open Days," to benefit the organization and a local garden club.
Persons associated with the garden include: Keith McGee (former owner), Kitty Taylor (garden designer, 2000), Leonard DeLonga (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and family letters.
General:
Irwin Zanone (b.2/14/1942-d.7/23/2008) was the primary designer and gardener of this 2.5 acre property. Zanone worked with others to create an orderly but relaxing environment with free-form curving beds for ornamental plants, a shaded curving walkway around the main garden areas with neatly planted beds alongside, and rectangular beds for the kitchen garden that included peonies, dill and asparagus planted in rows. With a family background in farming in the delta region, Zanone planted diverse perennials, shrubs, trees and vines and installed sculptures by Roy Tamboli and Larry Young. The brick hardscape stairs and walls at the entrance to the woodland garden are in geometric shapes, the swimming pool in a clearing is an organic form, and the garden house is a symmetrical design. An area for outdoor entertaining is approached via a shady walk through the woodland garden, and the kitchen garden and compost heap are located at the rear of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCallum (former owners, circa 1950-1979); Irwin Zanone (garden designer and gardener, 1982-2008); Jeanne Leatherman (garden designer and gardener, 1982-1987); Tom Pellett (garden designer, 1982-present); Roy Tamboli (sculptor, 1995); Larry Young (sculptor, 2008); and Samuel Earl Abraham (gardener, 1979-present).

General:
Buzzy's Surprise Garden serves as an excellent example of a small urban garden that provides a peaceful environment to relax and recharge. The property, only one third of an acre, was purchased in 1999 by its current owner who took it upon herself to create an urban oasis in the small space that was available. The planting plan incorporates boxwoods, hostas, mosses, pachysandra, and others for their varied green hues and textures; and Lenten roses, camellias, Annabelle hydrangeas, and various flowering bulbs for additions of color. A network of brick patios and pathways provide framework for the greenery; a wall fountain and wind chimes provide a soundscape; and various sculptures, glass globes, and birdhouses offer whimsical elements that reflect the individuality of the garden's creator.
Persons associated with the garden include: Priscila and George Early (former owners, 1930's); Billy Oates (former owner); Gail and Eugene Woods (former owners, 1970's); Ann and Mason Hawkins (former owners, 1970's -1980's); Jenny and William Grehan (former owners, 1980's-1990's); Juanna McCoy (former owner, 1990's); Jean Jones House (garden designer, 2000-present); and Danny Daniels (sculptor).

General:
Located on less than one acre, Native Nook is a young garden begun in 1996 and designed primarily as a teaching garden. The owner wishes to show that native plants can be successful in an urban landscape. Indigenous woodies which provide the background for perennial beds, an herb terrace, a garden house, and seating areas also provide winter interest in the perennial beds. Garden rooms have been loosely created to satisfy the owner's specific interests and desires. The perennial beds are arranged to create mystery, drawing the visitor along halls to the back gate.

The Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson Jr. Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The garden and residence of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson represents one of the first "Country Place Era" gardens in Nashville. The Neoclassical home, designed by architects A. Christian Asmus and Richard R. Clark, was built in 1929 by F.J. McCarthy and his wife Mary Byrd McCarthy. When the current owners assumed ownership of the property in 1987, the garden areas near the house were primarily lawns surrounded by towering boxwood hedges, formal and static in design. With the desire to allow more light into the Neoclassical style house as well as to create terraces to accommodate an eight foot change in elevation and a garden room for a swimming pool, the owners turned to their sons-in-law, landscape architect Ben Page (ASLA) and architect Stephen P. Rick (AIA) to renovate the property. The four garden rooms that were designed are arranged laterally alongside and below the house with surrounding high walls and interior low walls. A pre-existing 50-foot antique wrought iron fence and a pergola built on massive piers were incorporated into the design and separate the garden rooms from the natural garden that comprises the rest of the property. The first room is a large terrace that can be tented for special events, with steps down to a more intimate sunken terrace for family use, followed by more steps to a formal parterre rose garden with a pool and fountain in the middle and pear trees espaliered against one wall, and lastly a landscaped pool and new pool house converted from a three car garage with cutting and vegetable gardens nearby. A door in the garden wall closes off the swimming area when it is out of season.
This garden features plant material and hardscape with provenance, starting with the Seven Sisters climbing roses that were transplanted from another family property in the 1930s. Peonies planted by the current owner's mother still thrive below the pool house and border the cutting and vegetable gardens. The antique wrought iron fence was salvaged from another Nashville property and bricks used for the walks once comprised East Nashville sidewalks laid in the late 1800s. A Charlie Hunt sculpture "Dove of Peace" was carved from a foundation stone salvaged from an East Nashville church, Saint Ann's Episcopal (1882-1998). Native limestone and Tennessee Crab Orchard stone are local materials used for the walls and terraces.
In early spring a row of Yoshino cherry trees blooms along one side of a brick walkway just inside the high limestone wall with tulips blooming on the other side. Pansies and tulips surround the fountain in the rose garden for early color. In summer Annabelle hydrangeas border the swimming pool, and perennial flower beds come into bloom.
The gardens on the estate provide ample opportunities for a wide variety of social, civic and charitable events. One such event was the 1993 Swan Ball Patron's Party for the benefit of Cheekwood Botanical Barden and Museum of Art. The current owner has also hosted a series of literary salons to benefit the Nashville Public Library. Numerous local non-profits have benefited from fundraisers and garden tours hosted at the estate.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. F.J. and Mary Byrd McCarthy (former owners, 1929-1931); Mr. Edwin Wilson Craig and Elizabeth Wade Craig (former owners, 1931-1987); Christian A. Asmus and Richard R Clark (architects, 1929-1939); Ben Page, ASLA (landscape architect, 1988-1990); Stephen P. Rick (architect, 1988-1990); William Ralston (sculptor); Charlie Hunt (sculptor); Pink Ray (groundskeeper, 1931-1958); Mark Owen (groundskeeper, 1948-1971); Roy Goddard (groundskeeper, 1972-1981); Malcolm Campbell (grounds manager, 1981-1990); Norman David Pugh (grounds manager, 1990-present); Michele Webber (gardener, 2010-present).

General:
A natural wood picket fence along the street opens to a brick pathway through a shade garden and lawn with a contemporary sculpture, "Merging Steel" by Steve Bennyworth, ending at the front door of an historic Federal style brick house. Like other period homes there is no driveway between the house and the street. Fences enclose the entire one acre, with lushly planted deep borders around three distinct lawns, under the shade provided by mature trees. There are tropical plants in pots that are moved to a greenhouse in the winter, as well as flowering shrubs, vines and perennials. A circular brick terrace next to the house and several brick walkways were built from bricks made on the property by slaves in the 19th century, and are laid in "chicken grit" ground granite to protect the tree roots underneath. The foundation of the old kiln where the bricks were fired was discovered by a previous owner and converted into a water feature. In the service area at the rear of the property there is a kitchen garden for vegetables and herbs entered through an arch with espaliered pear trees. The greenhouse is located at the end of the pea gravel path, with a cutting garden for flowers as well as fruit trees and espaliered grapes on a toolshed nearby. Even the designated car park is utilized for beehives, blackberries, and pots of succulents.
The original four room Federal style brick house built circa 1810 has been significantly enlarged by subsequent owners, and the 194 acre farm that comprised the original property has been reduced to a one-acre lot in an historic Nashville subdivision. Earlier gardens were laid out by a previous owner, Frances Moore Ewald, and have been redesigned starting in 1998. The house and gardens are frequently opened for tours and entertaining. Craighead House is listed on the Tennessee Register of Historic Places, is included in the Tennessee conservation easement program through Historic Nashville, and won an architectural award from the Historical Commission of Metropolitan Nashville-Davidson County in 1999. One of the hackberry trees in the garden won first place in a Nashville big old tree contest in 2000.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Brown Craighead and family members (former owner, 1818-1890); Samuel A. Murphy (former owner, 1890 -1905); Richland Realty company (former owner and sub-divider of property, 1905-1914); W.E. and Sarah Watson (former owners, 1914-1915); Homer T. Derryberry (former owner, 1915-1934); Bonnie A. McGraw (former owner, 1934-1954); Jack and Sarah Gillaspy (former owners, 1954-1957); W.E. and Frances Moore Ewald (former owners, 1957-1971); John and Ann Nixon (former owners, 1971-1973); Dr. and Mrs. George V.
