            "The William Lyman Phillips Collection  - Gift of Carolyn Olmsted, 1977

A substantial collection of materials related to the personal life and professional practice of landscape architect William L. Phillips was acquired in 1977. Included are project files, photographs, clippings and ephemera, as well as research files assembled by Phillip's biographer Faith R. Jackson.

           William Lyman Phillips,  W.L. Phillips Collection  -  Gift of Juliette Phillips Coyle and Faith Reyher Jackson, 1977

The Phillips Collection consists of correspondence exchanged between two landscape architects-teacher and student-William Lyman Phillips (Harvard University B.A. 1908, M.L.A. 1910) and Prentiss French (Harvard University M.L.A. 1921). Perhaps best known as the designer of Florida's Fairchild Tropical Garden, Phillips' letters discuss both professional and personal matters."
