Series VI. Media Material, undated

Scope and Content Notes:

Griswold used an abundance of media material in his research, planning, and eventually to highlight his completed landscapes. Griswold collected this material throughout his career both at home and abroad. There is evidence that some of the slides were used for conferences and educational lectures given by Griswold. This series contains sketches, architectural drawings and prints, postcards, photographs, 35mm slides, and negatives collected by Griswold. The photographs and negatives are presumed to be taken by Griswold and arranged using his original decimal system order. The images correspond to lectures, projects, conferences, and general reference of landscape architecture elements. Many of the images document Griswold’s own completed landscape projects throughout his career. The print and photographic materials (Boxes 34-46) are now located in the media storage room for preservation purposes. Additional files relating to this material may be found in Series V.

Subseries 1. Photographs, undated

Scope and Content Notes:

The photographs in this series are organized in Griswold’s original decimal order from .000 to .121, and not all numbers are present in the collection. The photos initially had corresponding nitrate negatives affixed to the back of prints; the majority of the photos are undated. Additional files relating to this material may be found in Series V.

Subseries 3. Slides, undated

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries features an assortment of slides both lantern and 35mm in size. These slide images include completed Griswold projects, landscape pictures of Italian villas, gardens, and facades, and anecdotal humor etched onto glass plates for comic relief at presentations. The slides depict European landscapes from the earliest part of Griswold's career. The lantern slides display evidence of at least two original but conflicting numbering schemes, neither of which has been interpreted at this time. The majority of the slides are of unidentified structures or landscapes with unknown dates. When further identification was written on or noted in the slide, archivists noted this in the description. Boxes 41-45 contain lantern slides while box 46 contains 35 mm slides. Additional files relating to this material may be found in Series V.
