Scope and Contents:

General:
This garden in rural Virginia was established in 1936 and is one of the earliest gardens designed to showcase wildflowers and woodland plants in a naturalistic setting. The focal point is a sunken garden to which one descends from the house. A glade with steep banks of azaleas, wildflowers, and shade-loving plants, it surrounds an ornamental pool with a delicate, bird-shaped fountain. A wooden gazebo provides a sheltered area for sitting, while tall, deciduous trees provide a naturalistic structure and open views to pastures and the surrounding countryside.
Persons associated with the property include: James Taylor (former owner, 1722); Lewis B. Williams (former owner, 1843); Mr. and Mrs. William Clayton Williams (former owners, before 1940); Charles Gillette (landscape architect, 1940-1960); Thomas Craven (architect); and Billy Hale (architect, 1937).

Summary:
Scrapbook entitled "Our Wild Indians in Peace and War: Surveys, Expeditions, Mining and Scenery of the Great West," compiled by James E. Taylor, possibly as a source for his own illustrations.
Scope and Contents:
Scrapbook entitled "Our Wild Indians in Peace and War: Surveys, Expeditions, Mining and Scenery of the Great West," compiled by James E. Taylor, possibly as a source for his own illustrations. The album includes photographs (mostly albumen with three tintypes), newsclippings, wood engravings, and lithographs, some of which are reproductions of Taylor's own illustrations and paintings. Photographs depict American Indians, US Army soldiers and scouts, historical sites, forts, and scenery. Some were made on expeditions, including the Hayden and Powell surveys, and created from published stereographs. Many of Taylor's illustrations are signed, and some are inscribed with dates and "N. Y." The scrapbook also includes clippings from newspapers and other written sources relating to illustrations and photographs in the album.
Biographical Note:
James E. Taylor (1839-1901) was an artist-correspondent for Leslie's Illustrated Weekly Newspaper from 1863-1883. Born in Cincinatti, Ohio, he graduated from Notre Dame University by the age of sixteen. Taylor enlisted in the 10th New York Infantry in 1861 and the next year was hired by Leslie's Illustrated newspaper as a "Special Artist" and war correspondent. In 1864 he covered the Shenandoah Valley campaign, and was later one of the illustrator-correspondents at the 1867 treaty negotiations at Medicine Lodge, Kansas. He soon earned the moniker "Indian Artist" because of his vast number of drawings of American Indians. In 1883 Taylor retired from Leslie's to work as a freelance illustrator. Colonel Richard Irving Dodge used Taylor's drawings to illustrate his memoir, "Our Wild Indians: Thirty-three Years' Personal Experience among the Red Men of the Great West" (1882).
