Charles Sprague Sargent and the Arnold Arboretum by S. B Sutton ( Book )
6 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Arnold Arboretum's place among the world's great botanical gardens is in large part due to the skill and determination of its first director, Charles Sprague Sargent. In 1872, when Sargent was given the responsibility of creating an arboretum for Harvard, there were no American arboreta he could use as models. Yet the plan of development he established for the Arboretum was so sound that subsequent directors have adhered to it with few variations. This book, commissioned by the Arboretum to celebrate its hundredth anniversary, is both a biography of Sargent and a history of the institution's growth

This collection consists of four archival boxes that span the years from 1965-1968, which primarily reflect Sutton's research for Sargent's biography. Included in the correspondence, 1965-1968, are letters on topics such as Sargent and Olmstead's "Boston scheme," metropolitan parks, Wilson's expeditions, Sargent biographical material, and Arboretum institutional history. Sutton did extensive research in gathering material from primary sources, such as her letters to Katherine Bunker, who was secretary to Sargent and Wilson. In 1966 Ms. Sutton traveled to England to consult letters from Charles Sargent in the files of Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, the British Museum of Natural History, and the Library of the Royal Horticultural Society. Her research resulted in many photocopies of Sargent's letters from institutions and individuals that have strengthened the historical correspondence collection of the Arnold Arboretum. In addition to correspondence, the files include detailed notes on city parks, pre 1912 letters, Boston and the Arnold Arboretum, Kew Gardens of London, history of science, and the hurricane of 1938. There are a few letters that address institutional business that she answered as the Arboretum archivist. One box in the collection is devoted to drafts of the Sargent book from chapters 1-12
