Series III. Lecture Notes and Unpublished Works, 1913-1944

Scope and Content Notes:

Griswold dedication to the landscape architecture field is evident through his diligent notes that he wrote from lectures over the years. The lecture notes describe projects, plans, facts, and theories on landscape architecture. Griswold accumulated lecture notes during his time at Cornell University as well as other conferences and speeches he attended. It is evident that Griswold felt that he could repurpose his notes for future research and conference material. Some of the lecture notes and unpublished works were used in a variety of conferences and speaking engagements given by Griswold. Griswold notes include ideas for speeches, key points of lectures, conference material, and sketches of landscapes. Frequently, these notes directly correspond to a particular landscape project Griswold had worked on. The material in this series date from 1913 to 1944. Additional files relating to lectures and projects may be found in Series VII.
