Description

Letter in which Beatrix Farrand accepts an invitation to lecture at Harvard University under the Fogg Museum and the Harvard School of Landscape Architecture. She suggests to Paul Sachs that one lecture could be on Elizabethan Gardens and another on "plantings at various Universities with regard to their part in the general education of students in proportion and fitness." She also offers a possible alternate lecture on "the Art of the Landscape Gardener."

Typewritten letter on Beatrix Farrand's San Marino, California letterhead. Address crossed out and "Reef Point, Bar Harbor, Maine" typed beside it. Signed in black ink.

Includes penciled note at top, "[unknown abbreviated word] Farrand" and below, "Mary, Ask Prof. Pond the title of lecture we agreed on - then put on my desk [signed] p." "Prof. Pond" is Bremer Whidden Pond, the department head of the Harvard School of Landscape Architecture. (http://tclf.org/pioneer/bremer-pond)
