Garden History

With the beginning of spring, Mass Hort initiates a new section, to be named Garden History, on its website. The Society aims to recognize the contributions of scholars who formerly wrote for the New England Garden History Society Journal and to encourage contemporary writers to use their talents to grace our web page. The use of the labyrinthine logo is a declaration that the NEGHS is still with us in spirit and that its enthusiasm for remembering and restoring historical gardens abides.

It is fitting that we begin the new series with the republication of the long-time NEGHS Journal editor's 1998 article on Gertrude Jekyll. Judith Tankard has also given us a book review on Elizabeth Eustis's newly published book, Romantic Gardens, which accompanied the recently shown exhibit at the Morgan Library in New York City. Having authored several books since the article was published, Judith Tankard continues to support the public's appreciation of garden history and of landscape designers. In her next book, she will return to the ever-fascinating subject of Gertrude Jekyll with Gertrude Jekyll and the Country House Garden, to be published by Rizzoli this spring. To follow the author's activities, visit www.judithtankard.com.

Any other writer who would like to contribute to the Mass Hort Garden History web page with a previously published article, new writing, or a book review is invited to submit an electronic file with a few illustrations to Maureen Horn, the Librarian, at . Outlines and proposals will also be welcome.
