Description

Discusses the brick walk and ramp for the Garden Library and Ribbon Walk area along with the steps that go to the basement. Ruth Havey notes that there is a Dumbarton Oaks Symposium taking place on May 7th [1964], and she is trying to make that deadline. She mentions sending drawings to Mr. McLeish [of McLeod and Romberg Stone Co.] to get a comparative cost for the construction of the walk and ramp in all brick or in brick and limestone.
