Description

Typewritten agenda listing items to discuss for a possible upcoming meeting.

Uncertain who created list, possibly Beatrix Farrand or her secretary, Isabelle M. Stover, on behalf of Beatrix Farrand. May also have been Anne Sweeney as many of the items concern the Garden Center, an area for which Anne Sweeney was involved. Anne Sweeney traveled to Beatrix Farrand's home, Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine to meet with her in July 1948. One item on agenda, Planting History, might possibly refer to Beatrix Farrand's Plant Book for Dumbarton Oaks.

First page contains well organized list of items described in more detail; second page is a smaller typewritten note with items briefly listed.

Title created by cataloger.
