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.

General:
CDR copy FW-ASCH-7RR-0753, recorded on 7/14/1953 and 7/15/1953, is entitled "Sound Patterns." The recording was probably made by Frederic Ramsey, jr., as his name and address are stamped both inside and outside of the tape box. The tape consists of two subdivisions, as briefly described on the tape box. The first is "EXPERIMENTS WITH BRASS, STEEL, COPPER PIPES - FUNDAMENTALS, OVERTONES - Roger Maren, Amelia and Frederic Ramsey, Jr." The second subdivsion is "SHORT WAVE - BAND, 6 - 12 MC. Carriers, monitored and un-monitored with & without crystal phasing; code picture transmission; scrambled voices." ( But I don't hear any scrambled voices.)

FW-ASCH-7RR-0994
General:
CDR copy. FW-ASCH-7RR-0994 is one of a series of at least four tapes (-0991 through -0994) devoted to interviews conducted by the same unidentified person - almost certainly Tony Schwartz. Tony recorded a variety of Folkways albums based on field recordings he made in the 1950's near where he lived in New York City; however, these particular tapes apparently weren't used by Folkways. The box for this tape contains the number "VG-4." Although the questions and interview style on this tape are similar to the questions and style of the other three tapes, the current tape is somewhat different, as the interviewees are all secretaries rather than artists. Similar straightforward questions are asked of each secretary, such as: "What do you do?" "What kind of training did you have for your job? "What pleases (displeases) you most about your job? The secretaries all seem to be satisfied with their jobs, their consistently male bosses and their work, although all managed to mention, when asked, at least one thing they disliked. The first secretary, perhaps in her twenties, was a private secretary for a V.P. of a publishing company; the second, seemingly middle-aged, was a private secretary for the President of a company; the third, seemingly middle-aged, was a secretary within a steel corporation which had branches throughout the country. In addition to typing, taking dictation, opening mail, and filing, the secretaries all had to do some personal things for their boss, such as ordering theatre tickets, turning on the lights in the boss's office, and even writing personal checks.
