About the Project

Are you a garden lover? Who isn't? Since its founding in 1878, W. Atlee Burpee & Co. has run an extensive mail order seed company with international customers. In 1924, Burpee & Co. announced a prize contest where anyone could write in explaining What Burpee's Seeds Have Done for Me? If present, please transcribe stamped or circled dates at the start of each page. [Note from Archives of American Gardens: These letters are presented as a window into life in 1920s and therefore may include terms and expressions that are offensive to contemporary readers.
