Place:
Muffin's Garden (Cambridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Middlesex -- Cambridge
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes garden plans.
General:
Located off a cul-de-sac in the heart of Cambridge on approximately a quarter acre of land, Muffin's Garden is intimate and secluded. Muffin's Garden was installed in 1963. The current owner had little experience in gardening when the property was initially purchased and has guided the evolving design over fifty years. The garden had been laid out by the wife of local architect David Barns in the late thirties. The tall pink dogwood, katsura, and huge yew were present when the current owners moved in.
In 1984, the owners worked with landscape architect Alice Page Pickman. Pickman's plans show the redesign of the front entry, a new approach to the front door, a new home for the fountain with a large planting bed, and a new walkway, with plant recommendations. From 1995 to 1999, landscape designer Patricia Pratt supplied bulbs, plant material, and provided consultation. A pool was added with the pedestal fountain resettled within it, and the surrounding beds were reorganized and replanted. Caprizzi and Co. created curving bluestone edging around the pool and capped the "Radcliffe" wall with bluestone. The rock garden was begun and the whole garden redefined in a series of ordered spaces. In 2005, landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy sketched the design for the oval stone patio in the woodland garden.
The property is a long, irregular rectangle on an east/west axis and the house is located at its eastern edge. The garden is linear in shape, defined in English style by a series of "rooms" that flow informally from one to another. Ornamental pots, shallow steps, or the break in a wall mark the transitions between areas. The pool and fountain were designed to be viewed from the breakfast room. The entertaining and sitting areas on the terrace are easily accessed through the drawing room. The lawn area transitions to a bluestone path and onto Messervy's oval bluestone terrace set in the woodland and rock garden.
Trees are a determining feature of the garden, as nearly half the area behind the house is woodland. There are towering maples, hawthorn, hemlock, white pines, two katsura, tree-sized yews, and specimen trees such as stewartia, silverbell, magnolia, and swarf Japanese maples. As a result of the number of trees on the property, shade tolerant shrubs, bulbs, and plants have been carefully selected. Rhododendron, mountain laurel, hollies, viburnums, and Japanese pieris border the property.
Garden features include benches, bulbs, wooden fences, ferns, flower beds, foundation planting, garden borders, garden walks, gates, patios, ponds, retaining walls, rock gardens, shrubs, sheds, sculptures, stepping stones, terraces, urban gardens, stone walkways, walls, woodland gardens, and woodlands.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mrs. Otto G.T. Straub (former owner, 1926-1938); Professor and Mrs. Summer H. Slichter (former owners, 1938-1963); Al Jackson (gardener, 1963-2000); Carol Johnson (landscape architect, 1963); Alice Page Pickman (landscape architect, 1983-1984); Pat Pratt (landscape designer, 1995-1998); Julia Moir Messervy (landscape architect, 2005); Tom Maley (sculptor); David Gulde (gardener, 2001-); Jerry Gilligan (stonemason, 2005).

Western Union Telegraph Expedition Collection

Extent:
0.75 cu. ft. (1 document box) (1 half document box)
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Field notes
Manuscripts
Place:
Alaska
Date:
1865-1867
Descriptive Entry:
This collection includes correspondence, mostly to Spencer F. Baird, from members of the Scientific Corps of the Western Union Telegraph Expedition, including Kennicott, Dall, Bannister, and Elliott; copies of reports submitted to divisional chiefs from expedition staff members; newspaper clippings concerning the expedition; copies of notes on natural history taken by Robert Kennicott; and a journal containing meteorological data recorded by Henry M. Bannister from March to August, 1866.
Historical Note:
The Western Union Telegraph Expedition, 1865-1867, also known as the Russian-American Telegraph Expedition, was undertaken to study the possibility of setting up a communications system with Europe by way of Alaska, the Bering Straits, and Asia. The expedition was organized in three divisions, working in Canada, Russian-America (Alaska), and Asia. Robert Kennicott, the veteran Alaskan explorer, was placed in charge of the Russian-American division. Under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution and the Chicago Academy of Sciences, a Scientific Corps was established, with Kennicott in command, to accompany the Russian-American division and make collections in natural history. Naturalists William H. Dall, Henry M. Bannister, and Henry W. Elliott served as members of the Scientific Corps. On the death of Kennicott on May 13, 1866, Dall became chief of the Scientific Corps until the expedition was terminated in July 1867 due to the successful laying of the Atlantic Cable.
Restrictions:
It appears that some of the material in this collection was removed from the official correspondence files of the Smithsonian.

Minutes

Extent:
8.70 cu. ft. (9 document boxes) (7 12x17 boxes) (1 16x20 box)
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Manuscripts
Date:
1846-1995
Descriptive Entry:
These records are the official minutes of the Board. They are compiled at the direction of the Secretary of the Smithsonian, who is also secretary to the Board, after approval by the Regents' Executive Committee and by the Regents themselves. The minutes are edited, not a verbatim account of proceedings. For reasons unknown, there are no manuscript minutes for the period from 1857 through 1890; and researchers must rely on printed minutes published in the Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution instead. Minutes are transferred regularly from the Secretary's Office to the Archives. Minutes less than 15 years old are closed to researchers. Indexes exist for the period from 1907 to 1946 and can be useful.
Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the secretaries of State, War, Navy, Interior, and Agriculture; the Attorney General; and the Postmaster General. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877, and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and seven citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of Citizen Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead. The office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

The Regents of the Smithsonian have included distinguished Americans from many walks of life. Ex officio members (Vice President) have been: Spiro T. Agnew, Chester A. Arthur, Allen W. Barkley, John C. Breckenridge, George Bush, Schuyler Colfax, Calvin Coolidge, Charles Curtis, George M. Dallas, Charles G. Dawes, Charles W. Fairbanks, Millard Fillmore, Gerald R. Ford, John N.
