Description

Discusses Anne Sweeney's return following vacation, her visit to the New York Botanical Garden to discuss recommended books, her contact with James Bryce about postcards, garden tours being on hold during the Dumbarton Oaks Conversations, and the arrival of three garden books for the library at Dumbarton Oaks. The three books are: How plants get their names; Ornamental American shrubs; and My friend the rose.

An exhibition catalog was produced from the exhibit that commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the Dumbarton Oaks Conversations titled, Dumbarton Oaks Conversations, 1944-1994.

Includes a book list of "recommended books by Librarian at N.Y. Botanical Gardens."

Mentions having in mind a "Greek quotation" on the Museum Building.
