Subseries 5. Mellon-Scaife Botanical Garden, 1966-1967

Scope and Content Notes:

The restoration of the main garden in Mellon Park is found in the Pittsburgh Point Breeze neighborhood. This garden was developed as a memorial to Mrs. Sarah Mellon Scaife. To memorialize Mrs. Scaife, Griswold designed, developed, and participated in the rededication of an outdoor botanical garden. The botanical garden was developed to serve not only as a memorial, but as a source of study for botanical students, landscape professionals, and amateur gardeners alike. This garden promoted both the scientific and aesthetic understanding required to create botanical gardens. Griswold worked on this project from 1966 to 1969.
