The Garden Club of America Collection - Alice Lockwood's Lecture American Gardens of the Southern States

What do the gardens of Mount Vernon, Middleton Place, and the University of Virginia have in common? They are all featured in Alice Lockwood’s 1935 lecture titled “Southern Gardens” which describes historic gardens of Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Louisiana in detail. Each garden mentioned corresponds to a hand-painted glass lantern slide in The Garden Club of America Collection at the Archives of American Gardens. Help us reconstruct this traveling garden history lecture! Funding for the digitization of Lockwood's lecture, & its inclusion into the Transcription Center, was provided by the Smithsonian Women's Committee.
