Summary:
This collection consists of two letters from Henry Allen Hazen to Alfred Edward Moore as well as two news clippings.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of two letters from Henry Allen Hazen to Alfred Edward Moore. The first, dated May 19, 1887, discusses their upcoming flight in the World balloon including an interview Hazen had with a reporter about the flight and about necessary provisions. The second letter, dated June 28, 1887, includes observations from that same flight as well as notes about the scientific data they obtained and the post-flight coverage in the press. The collection also includes a copy of an article by Edward Duffy about the World balloon flight entitled "Three Miles High in a Balloon," dated December 1887; and the September 1886 issue of The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine, which includes an article by Moore and one by John G. Doughty about earlier balloon flights.
Arrangement:
Collection is in chronological order.
Biographical / Historical:
Alfred Edward "Fred" Moore (1858-1890) was a balloonist who made several ascents in and around Winsted, Connecticut. In June 1887, Moore ascended from St. Louis, Missouri in a balloon that was financed by the New York World and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on an expedition that included Henry Allen Hazen, a meterologist with the U. S. Signal Service Weather Bureau, photographer John G. Doughty, and Edward Duffy, correspondent. Though widely reported to have reached an altitude of 16,000 feet, the flight was cut short due to a hand injury sustained by Moore upon take-off as well as mechanical difficulties.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, and a photocopy of a newspaper magazine section cover depicting the garden.
General:
This garden existed from 1991 to 2000, when its owners moved to a new location. A small, charming, l-shaped city garden of 3,000 square feet, it was divided into three "rooms" by hedges, house walls, and gates. It was completely filled with a wealth of plant material, antique pots and urns, architectural fragments, and three fountains. The plantings were "city hardy," and featured magnolia, azalea, ivy, hosta, hydrangea, dogwood, hornbeam, yew, and boxwood. The house, in the "Old Soulard" district, was built in 1870, and the carriage house, formerly a blacksmith's shop, in 1840.
Persons associated with the garden include: Joseph J. Laurinski (former owner, 1991-2000) and Dennis H. Johns (former owner, 1991-2000).
