Place:
Westcott Garden (Montclair, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex County -- Montclair
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, safety film negatives, prints, and copies of articles.
General:
The suburban property had enough land to plant roses and to treat them experimentally with pesticides and fungicides for the diseases that plagued American gardens. This property was the home of Cynthia Westcott, PhD., plant pathology. As a result of her work with private clients, as well as through her own publications, Westcott was known as the plant doctor. She noted that roses responded spectacularly to regular weekly care, making them good test subjects. Westcott wrote many books and articles on the care of roses and other garden ornamentals, she belonged to a number of professional societies, and she was honored for her work many times. Nurserymen Jackson and Perkins named the hybrid tea rose Cynthia for her.
Persons associated with the garden include: Cynthia Westcott (1898-1983) (former owner, circa 1933-1962).
Related Materials:
Westcott Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (8 safety film negatives; 2 prints)
Additional archival materials such as the "Cynthia Westcott Papers, 1922-1983," are located at the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, 2B Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and an abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This .75-acre garden incorporates design work by D. Clark and Ethelbert E. Furlong. Clark's original plan (ca. 1909) was for a front garden between the house and the street. In the late 1920s Furlong developed the back of the property as a secluded woodland retreat. From the terrace directly behind the house a stone path leads down a steep bank to the lower level. Also, a manmade brooklet runs down the bank amid stones to a large pool. A fireplace is on the lower level. Bordering the back property line is a small branch of a local river.
Persons associated with the garden include: D. Clark (landscape architect, 1909); Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, 1928); Dudley S. Van Antwerp (architect, early 1900s); and Lyster C. Reighly, II (former owner, 1920s-1930s).
