Biographical/Historical note:
Washington, D.C. painter and art educator Alma Thomas (1891-1978) was known for her abstract paintings filled with dense patterns of color, and was considered a major artist of the Washington Color School.

Thomas was born in Columbus, Georgia, in 1894, and was the eldest of the four daughters of John Harris Thomas and Amelia Cantey Thomas. The family moved to Washington, D.C. in 1906 and Thomas was first introduced to art classes at Armstrong Technical High School. Following her graduation in 1911 she took a course in kindergarten teaching at the Miner Normal School, and subsequently worked as a substitute teacher in the Washington, D.C. public school system until 1914, when she took a teaching position on the Eastern shore of Maryland. From 1916 to 1923 she taught kindergarten at Thomas Garrett Settlement House in Wilmington, Delaware.

Thomas originally enrolled at Howard University in Washington, D.C. as a home economics major in 1921, but after studying under Lois Mailou Jones amd James V. Herring in Herring's newly established art department, she earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art in 1924, and became the first person to graduate from the program. Thomas then began her teaching career at Shaw Junior High School in Washington, D.C. that lasted from 1924, until her retirement in 1960. During this time she established community arts programs that would encourage her students to develop an appreciation of fine arts. Activities included marionette programs, distribution of student-designed holiday menu cards for dinners given for soldiers at the Tuskegee Veterans' Hospital, art clubs, lectures, and student exhibitions. In 1943 she became the founding vice president of Barnett Aden Gallery, which was established by James V. Herring and Alonzo Aden and was the first integrated gallery in Washington, D.C.

In 1934 Thomas earned an M.A. degree in Art Education from Columbia University. At American University in Washington, D.C., she studied creative painting under Joe Summerford, Robert Gates, and Jacob Kainen from 1950 to 1960, and began to break away from representational painting and experiment more seriously with Abstract Expressionism. In 1958 she participated in a tour of the art centers of Western Europe under the auspices of the Tyler School of Fine Arts at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Following her retirement from teaching in 1960, Thomas devoted herself full-time to painting, and continued to develop her signature style. She was inspired by nature and the desire to express beauty through composition and color, and refused to be constrained by societal expectations related to her race, gender, and age, achieving her greatest success in the last decade of her life. Her work was exhibited at the Dupont Theatre Art Gallery, Franz Bader Gallery, and the Howard University Gallery of Art, before she was honored in 1972 with exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Thomas's work has been exhibited at the White House and can be found in the permanent collections of major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copy of a Lamont Button Christmas card, and other photocopies.
General:
Architect Lamont H. Button built this house for his family in the late 1920s, on a 60 by 175 foot lot that had belonged to a farm with a cherry orchard on the edge of town. Re-using discarded Belgian blocks from a street project in Pittsburgh he built a tall house with European arts and crafts features such as the deeply inset arched front door with a ceramic tile attributed to Pewabic Pottery set in a millstone as the stoop. The house is adjacent to Frick Park and landscaping of the sloped site blurs the transition between its grounds and the park. The garden in front of the house is densely planted with Japanese maples, a weeping weigela, magnolia, holly, lace-cap hydrangea and Japanese snowbell. There are stone paths and a stone bridge across a dry river rock stream that leads to a stone bench set among white azaleas. Under plantings in the front yard include pachysandra, Lenten rose, geranium, epimedium, strawberry, spring bulbs, Japanese anemones, and daisies. The doorway is wreathed by ivy and a climbing rose arches over a bay window.
There is a narrow walkway to the rear garden between the house and a grape arbor. The bluestone patio is shady and has a wall fountain with a rill cut into the patio and down the steps to the park. Plants include hosta, fern, cyclamen, lilies, astilbe, and white climbing hydrangeas, with pots on the steps and a window box filled with colorful annuals. Wisteria and fall clematis grow on an iron trellis. Steps lead down to a lower green garden paved with river gravel with a bench between two green Asian rice pots. There is an ancient oak tree thought to be at least 125 years old anchoring this garden with an understory of Solomon's seal, jack in the pulpit, and ferns. Wind chimes in the trees and a hammock for reading are in another secret garden further down the hill.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lamont Hartung and Blanche Button (former owners, 1927); Albert and Wiggins (former owners, dates unknown); Nicholas and Louise Criss (former owners, 1958-1995); Lamont Hartung Button, AIA (architect, 1920s?); Sarah Drake, AIA (architect, 1995); Joel C. LeGall, ASLA (landscape architect); Rob Weaver (metal work)

United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Allegheny County -- Sewickley
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, a calendar, a planting list, historical information about the Italian community, and 28 photographic prints of horticultural details.
General:
The Macchione Italian Garden is a working family garden in which the four-tenths of an acre lot is planted with vegetables, herbs, and fruits that produce food for this extended family, following traditional practices. Some of these practices include collecting rainwater from the roofs of the house and garage in two large cisterns, growing bamboo in a corner next to the garage that is used for bean and tomato supports, using old pipes to build a grape arbor, and using plant material such as garlic leaves to tie up vines. Flowers are grown for beauty alongside vegetables and herbs as foundation plantings around the white clapboard house but there are few ornamental trees or shrubs. The working trees include Chinese chestnut and fruit: apple, apricot, cherry, fig, peach, pear, persimmon and plum, which, in addition to the grapes grown on the arbor, will be preserved or made into wine.
There are two large vegetable gardens enriched with compost in which the crops are rotated and planted in succession to maximize production. In May lettuce and broccoli are planted in alternating rows so the lettuce will be shaded as the weather gets warmer; other early season crops included garlic, onions and strawberries grown in pots. In summer the crops include zucchini, many kinds of peppers, cabbages, beans, eggplant and tomatoes. Rapini is planted in the fall while the seeds of the summer vegetables are saved for the next year. A white fig tree is pushed over into a trench each year and covered with boards and leaves so it will survive the winter weather. Chickens are kept in a coop next to the garage and their diet of corn is supplemented with harvested vegetable stalks.
The Macchione Italian Garden is featured in www.theitaliangardenproject.com and participated in a tour of Italian gardens in 2010.
Persons associated with the garden include: Schmitt family (former owners, 1910-1923); Brown family (former owners, 1923-1965); Rosario and Concetta Floro (former owners, 1965-1993); Frank and Dominica Flora (former owners, 1993-1999); Giovanni and Maria Macchione (former owners, 1999- ).

Ferry House Garden, The (South Dartmouth, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Bristol County -- South Dartmouth
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, garden designs with plant names, and additional information.
General:
The Ferry House and its gardens are situated on an isthmus facing Buzzards Bay on the south, the Slocum's River on the west, and the Little River on the east. The house was built in the 1760s, served as a tavern for (among others) mariners awaiting a favorable tide in the nearby cove, and as a station on the Underground Railroad. As a working farm, the property provided enrichment to the soil in the current garden from the numbers of animals both living there and passing through over time. The first formal Ferry House garden was designed by former owners Mr. and Mrs. St. John Webb, who filled the space with specimen boxwood as well as boxwood parterres. New owners in the 1970s commissioned landscape designers Barbara Watson and Diane Maguire, who redesigned the garden interior, retaining the existing yew hedges, grape arbor, columns and millstone. Two small stone terraces were constructed in the lower garden while the boxwood parterres were replaced with lawn and perennial borders of mixed colors and plant material, while a small bed was dedicated to blue. In 2000 Allen C. Haskell renewed the garden with large drifts of nepeta, gaura, and a border of miniature boxwood, which continues into the upper garden. The palette of the upper garden is lavender, blue, and white, with two espaliered apple trees and ornamental grasses in the corners. A grape arbor features David Austin 'Eden Climber' roses as well as Clematis paniculata. In 1996 a Greek folly was created on a wooded point overlooking Buzzards Bay. The five freestanding columns in a temple-like setting provide a "theater" for plays, picnics, and other festive occasions.
Persons associated with the garden include Diana Maguire (landscape architect, 1977-1978); Barbara Watson (landscape architect, 1977-1978); Allen C. Haskell (landscape designer and horticulturist (2000); Chuck Kiser (gardener, 1990 to date); and Mr. and Mrs. St. John Webb (former owners, 1945-1976).

General:
The New England Colonial style cottage built in 1789 by Phineas Pease, one of the original barns, and the channeled Konkapot brook from the old saw mill next door comprise the setting for Mary's Garden. Mary Hoffman Borie was a professional illustrator of plants, gardens and houses and the principle designer of this garden. When she moved to the one-acre property in the 1960s there was a perimeter planting of hemlocks with a woodlands garden. Now there are four distinct areas containing 45 flower beds with color choices that harmonize with nearby trees and shrubs: the woodland garden, the stonewall garden, the kitchen garden and the quarter moon garden. The hemlock screen around the property has smaller trees, native and cultivated shrubs, groundcovers, ferns and flowers in the understory. Other trees include apple, locust, birch and copper beech trees, and there are 107 shrubs throughout the property. Wildflowers were foraged and added to the mix years ago; now perennials are favored over annual flowers. The style of Mary's garden has become less formal, with self-sown and native plants allowed into the carefully designed flower beds.
The woodland garden was designed by the previous owner in a crescent shape that has evolved into a horseshoe shape for more sun exposure. In it there are natives including Jack-in-the-pulpit, wild cranesbill geranium, May apple and ostrich ferns, anchored by azaleas, hollies and mountain laurels and a Japanese maple. In spring the blooming season begins with ephemeral bulbs and flowering shrubs while ferns emerge, followed by peonies and perennials flowers. Annual flowers are dug in to add color and structure to this garden. The stone wall garden, sited between the house and barn features silver and blue tones with contrasting orange and yellow flowers. The quarter moon garden is an island bed featuring light green sedum, the dark purple foliage of ajuga, heuchera and hellebores. The kitchen garden beside the house has tall, scented old-fashioned flowers including phlox, iris, digitalis, nicotiana, narcissus and allium in the spring, and two trellises for clematis followed by morning glories later in the season. Also, there is a rock garden tucked under a mature grape arbor and espaliered trees against the house.
The Massachusetts Forest Health Program has recorded one of the black locust trees in Mary's Garden as the largest in the state.
Persons associated with the garden include: Phineas Pease (former owner, 1789-1836); Captain T.H. Lincoln (former owner, c. 1850); Helen Beaman Lakin (former owner and sculptor, 1957-1967); Mary Lakin Hoffman Borie (former owner and garden designer, 1967-1994); Peter Borie (former owner, 1994-2002); Cynthia Parson (garden designer, 1995 - present).

General:
The 4.79-acre property with a red brick Tudor influenced mansion built in 1913, and the grounds, were in disrepair in 1994 when the current owner gave it a name and began restorations. Mature trees including fruit trees were kept and augmented with more trees and shrubs in front of the house and in the center of the circular driveway. Many garden room designs were inspired by visits to gardens in England and Ireland, and garden features were acquired following visits to gardens in Europe and the American southwest. The owners added an outdoor kitchen to a patio with ornamental ironwork that had been built by the original owners in 1926. A nearby stone fireplace that is used year round was inspired by the outdoor fire pits in New Mexico. Three terraces or tiers divided by low stonewalls and new plantings connect the patio to the swimming pool. On the uppermost terrace there is a formal parterre garden with boxwood hedges and pincushion topiary. Grass walkways on the terraces are bordered by continuous blooms; lilies are favored and other perennials are added to extend bloom time. There is another patio with a hot tub, Adirondack chairs, and a stone lantern. A rustic arbor and stone steps lead to a lower garden and the vestigial Park River. The newest garden room close to the river is Asian-inspired, with Japanese cherry trees, dogwood, magnolia and weeping evergreen and a red painted footbridge over a stone 'river'.
On the north side of the property a restored former pony barn is used for storing garden tools. Nearby there is a new heated chicken house and vegetable garden with fruit trees enclosed by a white picket fence. A cutting garden with ironwork arches at each end has been added. Outside the kitchen there is a large herb garden, wall fountain on a gray fence, and a grape arbor on the site of a former dog pen. Other garden rooms include rose beds and a shade garden with hosta, fern, lily-of-the-valley and trillium. Flowering shrubs include lilac, mature rhododendron, and mountain laurel, the Connecticut state flower. There are extensive vines including eight varieties of clematis, three varieties of honeysuckle, trumpet vines and wisteria. Garden ornaments include a statue of Neptune next to the swimming pool, a tall angel on the patio near the outdoor kitchen, a large stone face set in one of the terraces, many planted containers and urns, and an armillary sphere.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles A. and Ruth Cheney Goodwin (former owners, 1913-1953); Richard C. Levin (former owner, circa 1956-1970); W. Robert Lappin (former owner, 1970-1994); Benjamin Wistar Morris (1870-1944) (architect, 1913); Tony DiBatiste (gardener, circa 1913-1954).

General:
Echo Lawn is located on a 6 acre parcel of land which was originally part of a 40 acre estate. The property has at its center an Italianate walled garden established in 1911 set within a wider naturalistic setting of the original landscaping of 1850-1860. This is set within a wider naturalistic landscaping of the original garden of 1850-1860. The National Register of Historic Places registration form completed for Echo Lawn, suggests that Echo Lawn's first period of design was influenced by landscape architect Andrew Jackson Downing and the architects Calvert Vaux and Frederick Clark Withers in their design of neighboring properties (Downing and Vaux at Algonac about 1851; Withers at Mornigside 1859). The 1911 design of the walled garden was developed by the artists Reynolds and Gifford Beal, brothers of the property owner at that time, Thaddeus Beal.
The original structure of the Italianate garden remains, defined by outer walls of fieldstone with cut bluestone topping. The terrace of flagstone and herringbone brick features a Neoclassical cast concrete balustrade from which a divided stone staircase circles around a small fountain as it leads down into the sunken walled garden with a large fountain at its center.
Historical accounts of the garden describe the walled garden as a less formal Italian garden with softer border plantings in contrast to the present hedges which frame the quadrants created by the garden's brick paths. Climbing roses and honeysuckle grew on the west wall, climbing hydrangea on the north wall, lilacs at the terrace, and ferns were planted at the center fountain.
To the north of the walled garden is a large lawn with views through specimen shade trees including locust, walnut, and maple to a peripheral border of native trees. This area originally featured a grape arbor and an allée of cherry trees which led to vegetable gardens and a pond. To the east of the walled garden, presently lawn with a low stone retaining wall and steps leading to the north lawn, was a pergola and rose arbor, beyond which a stream was dammed to form a pond featuring a moon bridge and a small island. To the south of the walled garden, now a lawn bordered by native trees, were fruit orchards and distant views of the hills beyond the Hudson River.
Echo Lawn was used as a filming location in the silent film, The Scales of Justice, released in 1914 by the Famous Players Film Company.
Persons associated with the garden include: George A. Elliott (former owner, ca. 1860-1880); Frank Gerard (builder, ca. 1850-1860); Mrs. Minnie Knowlton (former owner, 1880-1905); Thaddeus Beal (former owner, beginning 1905); Gifford Beal and (Alonzo) Reynolds Beal (garden designers, ca. 1911); and John and Mary Beal (former owners, to 1957).

General:
The 1922 Georgian Revival house and 29 acre estate (first called Gay Gardens) has gardens designed in different eras by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the 1920's, Umberto Innocenti in the 1930's and 1940's, and most recently by Oehme van Sweden starting in the late 1990's. Shipman designed a sunken grass garden surrounded by a yew hedge off to the side of the house with formal flower beds with yew or beech hedges, and more flower beds on the terraces. She placed a square stone reflecting pool in the center of the sunken garden. In the 1930's Innocenti moved the stairs to the sunken garden and removed Shipman's pool, adding a lozenge-shaped pool beyond the sunken garden with an open sightline from the house. He also designed an oval swimming pool with plantings (later replaced by a rectangular pool). In the 1940's Innocenti & Webel redesigned the front courtyard and surrounded the new tennis court with beech trees. Under the current owners landscape architects Oehme van Sweden designed a large pond with native plants and a recirculating water system that includes a waterfall and stream, added white pebbles to the driveway and pleached the beech around the tennis court.
Boxwood Farm has four acres of lawn interspersed with mature maple and other trees and huge flower beds. Perennial flowers include Russian sage, buddleia, lavender, ligularia, liriope, echinacea, penstemon, rudbeckia, Joe Pye weed and ornamental grasses; shrubs include boxwood, hydrangea, azalea, viburnum and knock-out roses. Ficus trees are planted out each year near an antique wall fountain in a small garden room of the patio, then dug up and kept in the greenhouse over the winter. An adjoining small room has a sundial, stellata magnolia and hydrangea. The lawn to the south of the house is intersected with stone pathways that divide it into diamond and triangular patches. Numerous stone planters are filled with lavender and agapanthus or white lantana in the summer and violas in cooler seasons. There is a raised garden surrounded by a picket fence set on a low dry stone wall that has a wooden grape arbor and boxwood parterres filled with white tulips, dwarf alliums, cardinal flowers, salvia, apple mint and strawberry plants, depending on the season. In a nearby 15 by 21 foot raised garden vegetables and flowers for cutting are grown. Another vegetable and fruit garden was added in the service area, once the site of another house on the original 179 acre estate. Woodland gardens border the driveway and a bridle paths recalls the polo matches held on the property in a previous era.
Persons associated with the garden include Hugh A. Murray and estate of (former owners, 1922-circa 1935); Catherine B. Hickox (former owner, 1935-1970); Charles V. Hickox and estate of (former owners, 1970-circa 1982); Paul Guez (former owner, circa 1982-circa 1989); GOV agencies (former owners, circa 1990-1997); Julian Peabody (1881-1935) of Peabody, Wilson & Brown (architect, 1922); Ellen Biddle Shipman (1869-1950) (landscape architect, 1922); Umberto Innocenti (1895-1968) (landscape architect, 1937- ); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1946-1970); Charles A.
