Biographical/Historical note

Three instructional horticulture greenhouses were built on Wilson Road in 1951, between what would become Ensminger Pavilion and the future site of Lighty Hall. The greenhouses were torn down in 2007, and the two-thirds acre site was designated as a Display Garden at the behest of University President V. Lane Rawlins and under the guidance of landscape architecture professor Phil Waite. Design and building of the garden began in 2008 and continued thereafter through class projects in various landscape architecture courses.

Arrangement note

The collection is arranged primarily based on format. One large oversized folder contains six drawings, layouts, and plans. One 8.5 x 11 inch folder also stored flat within that oversized folder contains protional materials and documentation about the garden. One CD within that contains approximately 1225 electronic files, primarily photographs (jpegs) in 50 files and sub-files. The contents of the CD were copied to MASC's digital storage and retained there exactly as donated.
