Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles and book excerpts about the park, photocopies of correspondence, maps, and additional information.
General:
Franklin Park (named for native son Benjamin Franklin) was created in 1885 as the terminus of the "Emerald Necklace" park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted for the City of Boston. Comprising over 500 acres, with 200 acres of woodland, the park was intended to enable working class people to experience and enjoy a rural atmosphere within the surrounding urban area. In that regard it shared the philosophy of Olmsted's two other major creations, Central Park and Prospect Park. Over the years formal recreational areas have been developed beyond those envisioned in Olmsted's original plan (for example, the "Country Park" was converted to a golf course), but many elements of the original design--such as the road system and extensive woodland walks--remain. In recent years citizen activism by the Franklin Park Coalition and other organizations has led to significant preservation efforts for the park's landscape and historic structures. Many of the images in this series were taken by Thomas W. Sears and selected ones were used to illustrate the July 1906 article by John Nolen cited below.
Persons associated with the site include Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect, 1885).
Related Materials:
Franklin Park related holdings consist of 3 folders (26 glass negatives, 8 photographic prints, 9 lantern slides, 3 slides (photographs))
Records related to this site can be found at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, Olmsted Job Number 00918, Franklin Park.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles about the school.
General:
Founded around 1885 by Arthur L. K. Volkmann, the Volkmann School was a leading day school in its day in Boston and was attended by Thomas W. Sears, who, like most of its graduates, went on to Harvard. These images, some of which were likely taken by Sears, document the students and faculty between roughly 1895 and 1900 (Sears graduated from Harvard in the class of 1903). As a result of Volkmann's retirement the school combined with the Noble and Greenough School in 1917 and subsequently moved from Boston to Dedham in 1922.
Persons associated with the school include Arthur L. K. Volkmann (founder, ca. 1885-1917).
Related Materials:
Volkmann School related holdings consist of 1 folder (4 glass negatives)

Scope and Contents:

General:
The Riverway is one of the sections of "The Parkway," Frederick Law Olmsted's grand design for a continuous green corridor (also known as the Emerald Necklace) running from the Charles River to Franklin Park. Following the course of the Muddy River from the Back Bay Fens, The Riverway was given its designation by a Boston Metropolitan Park Commissioners' 1887 vote as the area running from the Fens to upper Huntington Avenue and Leverett Pond. Construction of paths and bridges, grading, and planting of the section were substantially completed by 1895. The bulk of the images in this series were taken by Thomas W. Sears in 1907 and document both the Boston and Brookline sides of the river. The Emerald Necklace Conservancy spearheads contemporary efforts to preserve and restore The Riverway and other sections of "The Parkway" system.
Persons associated with the site include Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect, ca. 1880-1895).
Related Materials:
