Abstract:
The Conard-Pyle Company of West Grove, Pennsylvania was a large horticultural enterprise that specialized in the cultivation and hybridization of roses. It was founded in 1897, and established a large magazine-based advertizing campaign and mail order business. According to a Company history, Conard-Pyle can take credit for several “firsts” in commercial horticulture in the United States, particularly in the development of new varieties of roses. The Company is best known for its famed Star Roses, most notably the world-famous Peace Rose. The Peace Rose was “provided to delegates from around the world as they met in San Francisco on April 25, 1945, to form the United Nations” (Thomas p.1). The Conard-Pyle Company records contain material relating to the business activities of an influential and successful nursery company, created over a period of just over one hundred years. The papers chronicle Conard-Pyle’s evolution from a small-scale retail business to an influential wholesaler, as well as the financial, legal, and marketing concerns of a major nursery company. The collection provides a unique look at the activities of a large-scale nursery company, providing insight into the processes of plant breeding, patenting, marketing and sales. In addition, the collection serves as a window to the nursery industry as a whole, due to significant correspondence with other nurseries and material relating to professional organizations and societies within the nursery community.

Biography/History

Born in 1938, Armistead Willis Browning, Jr., was a landscape architect, environmentalist and teacher who dedicated his life to environmental preservation and education. Browning was the founder of Turtle Creek Designs, a landscape design consulting firm in Pocopson, Pennsylvania. The firm did residential work and large-scale environmental studies. Browning worked extensively with the Brandywine Conservancy in Chadds Ford and Pocopson Township, producing landmark studies of the scenic, historical and natural features of the Brandywine Valley Region. From 1977 until his death in 1987, Browning taught courses in landscape design and native plant horticulture at the University of Delaware. His weekly column, “Notes from Turtle Creek,” appeared in The Kennett Paper. He was also an accomplished and prolific photographer of the landscape and the natural world.

Armistead W. Browning, Jr. was the son of A. Willis Browning and Mary Harvey Browning, and the nephew of Edmund H. “Ted” Harvey, the founder of Delaware Wild Lands, Inc. Ted Harvey served as “an early inspiration for Mr. Browning’s commitment to the preservation of ecosystems,” ( News Journal). He was raised in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and spent a large part of his life exploring the woodlands, wetlands and meadows of the Brandywine River Valley. Browning earned a B.A. in English literature from Williams College in 1962, and two masters degrees from Columbia University: History of Architecture (1967) and Architecture, with a focus on landscape architecture (1971). He also studied at Yale University School of Forestry, where he was a special student in ecology in 1975.

Browning began his career while still a student as a draftsman in Columbia University's Office of Architectural Planning. He worked as an environmental planner between 1971 and 1975 for A.E. Bye and Associates in Cos Cob, Connecticut, the firm of the noted landscape architect Arthur Edwin Bye, with whom Brown studied. Bye, a "natural garden designer" who advocated natural form and use of native plan materials, had an indelible influence on Browning's future work. Browning co-authored "Design Makes the Garden" with A.E. Bye, an article that appeared in the U.S. Department of Agriculture Yearbook in 1974. In an overlapping period, 1972 to 1975, Browning also gained experience as an environmental landscape designer for Community Design Associates (CODA) in Cos Cob.

Browning returned to the Delaware Valley area as an associate at Breck Associates (also known as Cooperson-Breck Associates) in Montchanin, Delaware, from 1977 to 1981, and he served as president of Locust Grove, Ltd., of West Chester, Pennsylvania, from 1981 until his death. Reflecting his regional expertise, Browning served as a consultant on hydrology and watershed dynamics for National Wildlife Magazine in Washington, D.C.; he also as lectured at the University of Delaware and served as a faculty member of Longwood Gardens, teaching widely on horticulture, landscape gardening and design, environmental analysis, nature education, and stream ecology. Browning taught part-time or guest-lectured at Delaware Community College in Media, Pennsylvania, at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School Of Landscape Architecture, at the Maryland Federation of Garden Clubs, at the Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs, and at Harvard University Graduate School of Landscape Architecture.

In addition, Browning ran his own landscape design consulting firm, Turtle Creek Design, which focused on residential work and large-scale environmental studies; and Turtle Creek Environmental Center, a private practice focusing on residential landscape design, environmental management consultation, woodlot and forestry management, and alternative homestead methods.

Browning was extremely involved in environmental conservation and study, living in a log cabin on a portion of his family’s old farm and working with the Brandywine Conservancy, “producing landmark studies of the scenic, historic, and natural features of the Brandywine Valley region,” (Newsletter). He was responsible for helping to organize the division of the 6,400 acre Buck and Doe Run Farm property (known as the King Ranch), and at the time of his death, was planning with his wife to convert part of Turtle Creek Farm into an environmental center. According to an unidentified obituary, Browning was “a birthright Quaker and an admirer of American Indian views of man-nature relationships.” Browning was married to Jessie Cocks-Browning. On December 24, 1987, Browning was found dead at Turtle Creek Farm, the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Biography/History

The Conard-Pyle Company of West Grove, Pennsylvania, was a large horticultural enterprise that specialized in the cultivation and hybridization of roses. It was founded in 1897, and established a large magazine-based advertizing campaign and mail order business. According to a Company history, Conard-Pyle can take credit for several “firsts” in commercial horticulture in the United States, particularly in the development of new varieties of roses. The Company is best known for its famed Star Roses, most notably the world-famous Peace Rose. The Peace Rose was “provided to delegates from around the world as they met in San Francisco on April 25, 1945, to form the United Nations” (Thomas p.1).

The Conard-Pyle Company was founded in 1897, but can trace its roots back to 1874 when Charles Dingee (1825-1911) and Alfred Conard (1835-1906) started Harmony Grove Nursery. Charles Dingee was a former dairy farmer and Alfred Conard was descended from a German Quaker farming family. Dingee and Conard originally specialized in fruit trees, but soon began producing roses at the request of Mrs. Dingee (Conard-Pyle Company, History, p.1). Despite their success –or perhaps, because of it - Dingee and Conard had a falling out in 1892 that ultimately ended their partnership. Dingee continued his operation of the Dingee & Conard Company until his death in 1911.

In 1897, Conard joined with Antoine Wintzer and S. Morris Jones to form the Conard and Jones Company. Wintzer, a hybridizer who hailed from Alsace Lorraine, had left the Dingee and Conard Company around the same time as Conard. Both men established small nurseries across the street from the Dingee and Conard Company nursery. S. Morris Jones, a dairy farmer whose land bridged the gap between Conard and Wintzer’s land, was persuaded to invest his land in the new company (Conard-Pyle Company, History, p.2). The Conard and Jones Company was incorporated on June 3, 1897, with Wintzer serving as head nurseryman. The company operated as a mail order nursery and seed business that sold their own root-roses while still small.

Successful merchant Robert L. Pyle invested in the company in 1898. Two years later his son, Robert Pyle (March 7, 1877-September 28, 1951) joined the company as a helper, and soon worked his way up to Director of Marketing. The business bloomed under his direction (Quillman, p.49). Conard died in 1906 and in 1907 Robert Pyle and his father purchased Conard’s share of the company. Robert Pyle became president, and that same year made history by marketing the slogan, “Guaranteed to Bloom.” It was the first time in the horticulture industry that product was sold to consumers with a guarantee (Conard-Pyle Company, p.5). Pyle soon came to believe that specialization was the key to success, and choose roses as the company’s new focus (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 3). In 1908 he trademarked the term “Star Roses” as a way to distinguish the company’s roses from the competition.

S. Morris Jones retired in 1923, and the name of the company was changed to Conard-Pyle (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p.1). Soon after the company purchased additional land in Jennersville, Pennsylvania, and established the Red Rose Inn, which held an annual “Red Rose Rent Day” event at which a single rose was presented as symbolic lease payment to a descendant of William Penn, original holder of the land. In 1930, Antoine Wintzer died and Sidney Hutton was hired as the new business manager. Soon after, his sons Sidney Jr. and Richard joined the company.

The United States Plant Patent Act passed in 1930 and Conard-Pyle began to develop and patent new varieties of roses. “Conard-Pyle was among the first to patent new roses and license other leading nurseries to grow and sell them” (Thomas, p.2). In 1932 Conard-Pyle entered a partnership with French hybridizer Francis Meilland’s company, The House of Meilland. When war descended upon Europe in 1939, Meilland made an effort to save a new rose variety he had developed. He sent parcels of the new rose to associates in Germany and Italy, as well as to Conard-Pyle. After several successful trials across the United States, the famous Peace Rose was patented in 1943 and officially unveiled on the day Berlin fell to Allied forces (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 4). The Peace Rose was distributed to delegates as they arrived at the first meeting of the United Nations in 1945. Almost every new rose today is a descendant of the Peace Rose.

Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, the Conard-Pyle Company continued to successfully develop and patent numerous award-winning roses. Upon Robert Pyle’s death in 1951, the Huttons purchased the company and Sidney B. Hutton, Sr. became president. He was succeeded as president by his sons Sidney B. (Beany) Hutton, Jr. in 1964 and Richard J. (Dick) Hutton in 1974. In 1978, Conard-Pyle dissolved its retail garden center and mail order business and to become a strictly wholesale nursery business. In 1986 Steven B. Hutton became president of Conard-Pyle (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 4). As of 2011, Conard-Pyle continues to develop and market quality and award-winning plants.

Biography/History

The Delaware Theatre Company (DTC) was founded in Wilmington, Delaware in 1978 with a mission to create theater of the highest professional quality in Delaware and theyerby enrich the vitality of the area through artistic programming, education and community service. The largest professional theater in Delaware, DTC was the collective brainchild of Cleveland Morris, Peter DeLaurier and Ceal Phelan. The three friends founded DTC “to revive a city that had fallen victim to the race riots of the late 1960s [and] whose historic past was overshadowed by the urban wasteland that had replaced neighborhood vitality.., [and to start] a professional regional theatre” (Kipp, page 13). With support from Mayor Bill McLaughlin, the Company was established in an abandoned firehouse on French Street in Wilmington, at the affordable rent of one dollar per year. The French Street Firehouse served as the site for “rehearsals, set construction, office work, and plays,” (Delaware Theatre Company) despite struggles with space issues and financial resources. In 1983, as a result of raising almost two million dollars in a capital campaign, DTC moved into a new building on the Christiana waterfront.

The Delaware Theatre Company is currently governed by a board of directors that is led by a team of four officers: a chairman, vice chairman, treasurer and secretary. In addition, several committees have been formed to help manage particular aspects of DTC. Over the years, there have been development, executive, long range planning, nominating, benefit and finance committees, and others.

Since its inception, the Delaware Theatre Company has produced about five plays are produced per season. Plays have included A Christmas Carol,  Hamlet,  The Importance of Being Earnest,  Our Town and   Looking Over the President’s Shoulder. In addition, new plays dealing with interracial dynamics in America continue to be discovered by a biennial competition called “Connections.”

Cleveland Morris was a co-founder and the first artistic director of the Delaware Theatre Company. Morris was born circa 1940 and educated at Yale University, where he studied drawing and color theory. He also studied at West of England College of Art and the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art. From its founding until 1998, Morris served as the artistic director for the DTC with goals to provide high professional quality theatre. Morris’ talent was well-known, and according to Phil Toman of WNRK Radio, “every time [he saw] ‘directed by Cleveland Morris’ in a program, [he] got a mindset…it [was] going to be good.” After serving the Delaware Theatre Company for twenty years, Morris resigned in 1998 in order to write novels and paint still life artwork. He moved to Virginia in 1999. He was succeeded by Fontaine Syer, who served as artistic director of DTC until 2005, and Anne Marie Cammarato, who served from 2005 to 2010.

The Delaware Theatre Company operates “nationally recognized education programs [which] reach out to all sectors of the community,” (Delaware Theatre Company). Among these programs are the Theatre in the Schools matinee program; classroom visits by Delaware Theatre Company teaching artists; post-performance conversations with members of the cast; "Insights," a standards-based study guide for teachers; and Summer on the Stage. Moreover, the Delaware Theatre Company focuses on providing at-risk youth access to the arts. Some of the programs designed to help this demographic are Totally Awesome Kids, Pro-Actors, and a partnership with the Ferris School.

Biography/History

Opened in 1829, Eastern State Penitentiary introduced a revolutionary system of incarceration, dubbed the Pennsylvania System, in which solitary confinement served as a form of rehabilitation. This system became the model for over 300 prisons worldwide. Designed by John Haviland, Eastern State Penitentiary's radial floor plan provided each prisoner his or her own cell, bathroom facility, and exercise yard.

Eastern State was viewed as a progressive reform in that it eliminated many of the excesses of physical punishment in colonial American prisons. Within most 18th century prisons, "physical punishment and mutilation were common, and abuse of the prisoners by the guards and overseers was assumed," (ushistory.org). Believing that the main goal of the prison should be rehabilitation through true penitence, the Prison Society created a system in which prisoners had no physical contact with other prisoners or guards.

While solitary confinement resulted in significantly better conditions for prisoners than the typical early 19th century prisons where prisoners were often confined in large groups without bathroom facilities, Eastern State's "system of confinement in cells posed new problems for the maintenance of the prisoners' physical and mental health," (Johnston, page 59). Indeed, it was widely believed (then and now) to have caused significant mental illness among its prisoners due to its solitary confinement. Eastern State originally housed an infirmary and an apothecary, and prisoners were treated by a physician and several male nurses. However, shortly after opening, hospital cells were created and maintained.

According to Johnston, efforts were made for prisoners to stay clean and "inmates wearing hoods would be brought to bathe individually every two or three weeks," (Johnson, page 59). However, the heating, ventilation, and plumbing systems were insufficient which resulted, inevitably, in illness. While mental illness surely resulted from solitary confinement for some, "prisons were the dumping ground for a significant number of mentally ill men and women, undoubtedly due to the dearth of public facilities to care for the criminally insane," (Johnston, page 60). Records of medical conditions at the time of admittance and throughout confinement were kept by prison officials.

Biography/History

Physicist, inventor, university professor, and solar energy pioneer Karl Wolfgang Böer was born March 23, 1926, in Berlin, Germany. He became a naturalized American citizen in August 1972. Böer was educated at Humboldt University in Berlin (Diploma, Physics, 1949; Doctorate, Physics and Solid State Physics, 1952, 1955) where he also taught in the physics department from 1950 to 1961. At Humboldt University, Böer formed and directed a research team, which became a section of the II Physics Department in 1951 with eight scientists. By 1961, the group had grown to twenty-six scientists and twenty-three support personnel. Upon completion of his doctoral degrees, and in addition to his academic position at Humboldt, Böer founded and became director of the Section of Dielectric Breakdown of the German Academy of Science in Berlin. The laboratories included facilities to grow and analyze cadmium sulfide (CdS) single crystals, as well as optical and electrical laboratories, a magnetic laboratory (40kG/8cm3), a high pressure facility (20kbar with optical windows), and x-ray, emission spectroscopy, and low temperature facilities. The shops included mechanical (for metal and wood), glass, and electronic shops.

Böer's decision to immigrate to the United States was prompted by the construction of the Berlin Wall--an event that took place while Böer was attending a scientific conference at Cornell University. After resigning from his position as chair of the physics department at Humboldt, Böer began his career at the University of Delaware as an associate professor of physics in 1962. In 1965, he became professor of physics, and, in 1971, professor of physics and engineering.

With a vision of solar energy as a supply source for residential energy and a means to reduce American dependence on foreign oil imports, Böer anticipated issues of the energy crisis of the mid-1970s and founded the Institute of Energy Conservation (IEC) at the University of Delaware in 1972. He served as its director and chief scientist from 1972 to 1975. Under Böer's direction, the IEC grew from a small research and development group into a major research facility and important training ground for many of the individuals who have contributed to advances in photovoltaic technology for delivery of solar energy. In the introduction to a special issue of Progress in Photovoltaics celebrating IEC's 25th anniversary in 1997, Birkmire and Hegedus credited Böer with recognizing the potential of thin film photovoltaic cells coupled with thermal collectors as clean and inexpensive means to deliver solar energy. Böer obtained funding from the National Science Foundation, electric power utilities, and the University of Delaware Board of Trustees to establish the IEC. This pioneering endeavor predated the first oil embargo, as well as the establishment of the U.S. Department of Energy and the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI), both formed in 1977.

Research during the early years at IEC focused on increasing the conversion and delivery efficiency of copper sulfide/cadmium sulfide (Cu2S/CdS) used in thin film solar cells. In 1972, Böer proposed Solar One, the first solar house, to harvest solar energy in a total system approach. The experimental house, with solar-generated heat and electricity, was built in 1973 at the University of Delaware with support from Delmarva Power and Light Company.

Parallel to development of IEC, Böer was involved in the foundation of Solar Energy Systems (SES), Inc., a private corporation in contract with the University of Delaware, IEC, and Shell Oil Company. Böer served initially as chairman of the board (1972-1981) and chief executive officer (1972-1975); he later served as chief scientist (1975-1985). The purpose of the company was to produce solar energy conversion hardware, beginning with Cu2S/CdS solar cells capable for mass fabrication.

In 1975, Böer returned to a fulltime research and teaching position and began advising the University's president on long term projects. In 1993 he was named Distinguished Professor of Physics and Solar Energy. He eventually retired from the University of Delaware in 1994 as Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Physics and Solar Energy after receiving many awards for teaching and research. In 1998, the University presented Böer with its Medal of Distinction.

Böer's expertise in solar cells, solar energy systems, solid state physics, and electronic transport in solids is internationally recognized. He holds twenty-eight patents in solid state technology, authored over 300 articles on solar energy conversion and solid state physics, co-authored two books, and edited scientific textbooks and journals. Böer was the founding editor of physica status solidi: the International Journal of Solid State Physics, and edited  Solar News and Views in Solar Age, the  Journal of Solar Energy Materials, and  Advances in Solar Energy. Böer's book,  Survey of Semiconductor Physics (1993) is the most comprehensive treatment in the field written by a single author. He has received the highest honors of his profession, including election as a fellow of the American Physical Society (1965), fellow of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES, 2000), and fellow of the Institute of Electric and Electronic Engineers (IEEE, 2001).

Throughout his career with the University of Delaware's physics and engineering departments and the IEC, Böer worked on many projects relating to the development and production of solar cells and solar energy conversion. These projects were funded by agencies such as the Department of Energy (DOE), the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) at DOE, the United States military, NASA, and private corporations. As evidenced in this collection, Böer maintained close contact with the emerging fields of solar energy and energy conservation by attending conferences, making public addresses, reviewing and refereeing academic publications, and serving as a consultant to industries and governments. During the 1970s, he had several government assignments on national energy panels. He was a member of the White House Office of Science and Technology Energy Assessment Panel (1972), the National Advisory Board in Solar Conservation Research (1975-1977), and a member of U.S. Senator William Roth's Delaware Energy Task Force (1974-1975). Additionally, Böer served the National Science Foundation several times, chairing the CdS Solar Cell subpanel (1973) and the Solar Heating Systems subpanel (1973).

In addition to his duties at the University of Delaware, IEC, and SES, Böer worked with various groups and organizations dedicated to the development of solar energy. Böer was an active member of the American Section of International Solar Energy Society (ASES), a professional organization that advanced the use of solar energy through the gathering and dissemination of information related to renewable energy sources. The primary activities of ASES include hosting and organizing conferences and symposia, publishing periodicals, scholarly journals, and conference proceedings, and encouraging research and public awareness of solar energy. Böer began serving as a member of the ASES board of directors in 1974, then as chairman of the board from 1976 to 1977. He also served on the Executive Committee, the Publications Committee, the Long Range Planning Committee, and as a member of the Physics Division throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s. ASES opened an office at the University of Delaware in 1978, and eventually became a main office for the organization's publication projects.

In 1987, the University of Delaware established the Karl W. Böer Solar Energy Medal of Merit in Böer's honor. Former President Jimmy Carter was the first recipient of the award in 1993, recognized for his work in focusing world attention on solar energy. Honorees receive a bronze medal and a $40,000 stipend.

In 1995, Böer was named to the advisory board of WISTA, a Science and Technology Center in Berlin-Adlershof, serving as the group's U.S. Representative. Delegates from WISTA toured the United States in order to promote greater technological, educational, and industrial cooperation between the U.S. and Berlin-Adlershof.

Biography/History

Major David Lenox (1753-1828) served in the Revolutionary War and later became a successful merchant, Federal marshal, diplomat, and banker in Philadelphia.

Born October 3, 1753 in Kirkcudbright, Scotland, David Lenox emigrated with his brother Robert to Philadelphia sometime before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. On January 5, 1776, Lenox was commissioned Captain of the 3rd Battalion of the Pennsylvania Militia. Lenox was serving at Fort Washington on the northern edge of Manhattan when it was captured by the British on November 16, 1776. He was wounded and taken prisoner, and held at Flatbush on Long Island until his release in May 1778. From 1779 to 1781, Lenox served in the Philadelphia City Troop. On October 4, 1779, James Wilson and his colleagues barricaded themselves in Wilson's home, or Fort Wilson, during a riot following Wilson's successful defense of 23 people from property seizure and exile by the radical government of Pennsylvania. Lenox was a member of the Philadelphia City Troop who participated in ending the riot.

Following the Revolutionary War, Lenox entered mercantile life in Philadelphia and became very prominent in business. Appointed on September 26, 1793, Lenox served as a Federal marshal of the district of Pennsylvania until May 18, 1795. During his service as marshal, he participated in the suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion. From 1799 to 1801, Lenox served as Agent for the United States to the Court of St. James, during which he worked to exchange American sailors who were captured by the British and French during the Quasi-War.

In 1812, Lenox was appointed a trustee of the Girard Bank, a position in which he served until his death. In 1813, he became president of the Philadelphia Bank, serving until 1818.

On August 26, 1779, Lenox married Tacy Lukens, the granddaughter of John Lukens (circa 1720-1789) who served as Surveyor General of Pennsylvania and Delaware. From 1818 until his death on April 10, 1828, Lenox lived in retirement in Philadelphia.

Biography/History

Joseph Allen Frear, Jr., was born on March 7, 1903, on Cypress Glen Farm near Rising Sun, Delaware. He was the youngest of three children born to Joseph Allen Frear and Clara Lowber Frear. Allen Frear attended Rising Sun Rural Elementary School and graduated from Caesar Rodney High School in June 1920. He attended Delaware College, which changed its name and status to the University of Delaware in the middle of his collegiate tenure. Frear was graduated from the University of Delaware in 1924 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Sciences. On February 11, 1933, Frear married Esther Viola Schauer of Hartford, Wisconsin, and settled in Dover. Their first child, Fred Frear, was born on April 19, 1934, and their second child, Clara Louise Frear, was born on November 15, 1942.

While residing in Dover, Frear owned and operated a retail store and pursued interests in banking and finance, serving on several regional committees. Frear was on the Board of Directors for the Federal Land Bank of Baltimore from 1938 to 1948, serving as chairman from 1946 to 1948. He also was a member of the boards of the Baltimore Trust Company (Camden, Maryland), the Farmers Bank of the State of Delaware, the Delaware Safety Council, the Delaware Blood Bank, and the University of Delaware. From 1947-1951, Frear served as president of the Board of Trustees of the Kent General Hospital in Dover. Additionally, Frear was a commissioner to Delaware State College from 1936 to 1941, the Old Age Welfare Board from 1937 to 1948, and Delaware State Hospital from 1946 to 1949.

J. Allen Frear, Jr., enlisted as a captain in the Allied Military Government field, a Civil Service branch of the U.S. Army, in 1944. His military training was completed at Harvard University, after which he traveled to England for his overseas assignment. Frear entered Normandy, France, with the allied invasion forces on D-Day, and was afterwards promoted to the rank of Major. After the hostilities had come to an end in Europe in 1946, Frear was honorably discharged and returned to civilian life in Dover, Delaware.

Upon his return to Dover, Frear became an official member of the Officers' Reserve Corps, the American Legion, and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Frear, having been inducted into the Sigma Nu Fraternity and the Derelicts Society, an honorary society at the University of Delaware, maintained a strong sense of loyalty to fraternal orders throughout his life. He was a member of the Wilmington Rotary Club, the Delaware Grange, the Nur Temple, the Wilmington Order of Court Jesters, the Tall Cedars of Lebanon, the Wilmington Club, and the Order of Freemasons, in which he attained the distinguished rank of a 33 1/3 degree Mason.

Frear was also a lifelong member of the Peoples' Church, a Congregational Christian church in Dover, Delaware, and served as the President of the Church's board for several years. Additionally, Senator Frear participated in several Bible study and prayer groups.

In 1947, J. Allen Frear, Jr., applied for and was accepted to the University of Delaware's graduate program in economics. However, his 1948 senatorial election bid was successful and Frear pursued a new career in the political spectrum. Although Frear had no direct political experience other than his involvement with financial boards and state commissions, J. Allen Frear, Jr., defeated C. Douglass Buck, the incumbent Republican from Wilmington, in the U.S Senate race of 1948. Frear served as the junior Democratic Senator with Republican Senator John J. Williams (from Millsboro), and was re-elected to a second term in 1954. Frear served in Congress from January 3, 1949 until January 3, 1961.

Senator Frear's congressional work focused on issues directly affecting the state of Delaware. He was strongly endorsed by Delaware labor unions and farmers, and worked diligently throughout his career to further aid to farmers and blue collar workers. Senator Frear represented Delaware's major industries as well, and was instrumental in passing legislation which eased the burden on shareholding taxpayers who had invested in the Du Pont-General Motors merger before the onset of antitrust legislation in 1950. Additionally, in 1958 Frear was effective in preventing the Army from closing the Lenape Ordinance District Plant which was operated by Chrysler Corporation in Newark, saving hundreds of Delaware jobs. Throughout the 1950s, Frear sought federal contracts for the state and promoted development of the Air. Force Base in Dover. He was a strategic player in ending the Pennsylvania Railroad strike of September 1960, an issue of great concern to Delaware agricultural and industrial constituents whose shipping needs were affected by the strike.

Frear was dedicated to his individual constituents, assisting the citizens of Delaware with issues large and small. He hosted tours of the Capital and introduced young Delawareans to government; navigated the labyrinth of bureaucracy for veterans, civil servants, and immigrants; and secured federal disaster relief for hurricane victims.

Senator Frear's participation and organizational efforts were crucial to the success of several annual Delaware state events, such as the Pushmobile Derby, Dover Day, and the Delmarva Chicken Festival, an extremely important event in the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia poultry-producing region. He was also heavily involved with planning the New Castle Tercentenary and Independence Day celebrations.

Reflecting his pre-Congressional experience, Senator Frear's committee assignments concerned finance, banking, and fiscal responsibility. During his tenure in office, Senator Frear was third ranking member on the Senate Finance Committee, fourth ranking member on the Banking and Currency Committee, and served on the Senate Committee for the District of Columbia. During the 85th Congress (1957-1958), Senator Frear served as chairman of the Subcommittee on Federal Reserve and the Fiscal Affairs Committee. Other subcommittee participation included Banking, International Finance, Judiciary, Securities, and Production and Stabilization. Additionally, Senator Frear was appointed to the Joint Committee on Defense Production and the Joint Committee on Internal Revenue and Taxation.

Throughout his tenure in office, Senator Frear traveled extensively on congressional business, visiting Panama, Brazil, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, and many countries hosting summits and international parliamentary conferences in western Europe. Frear taped several speeches during his 1959 visit to Indonesia, which were later aired to his constituents on WDEL.

Senator Frear addressed the people of Delaware in weekly radio broadcasts called "The Week in Congress." In these brief addresses, Senator Frear communicated to his constituent audience synopses of the events, discussions, and decisions made during the previous week in Congress. He also used this forum to state positions on international affairs and foreign policy, such as the Korean War, General MacArthur's dismissal, and containment of Communism through a variety of measures.

Frear's two terms in office spanned the dynamic decade of the 1950s when Americans faced the Korean War, McCarthyism, desegregation, atomic energy, and the Cold War. He was defeated in his 1960 bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate by Delaware's member-at-large in the House, J. Caleb Boggs. Frear was appointed by his former Senate colleague, President John F. Kennedy, to the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1960 where he served until 1963. He then returned to Dover to pursue his interests in banking and finance.

Senator Frear was highly revered for his dedication to the state of Delaware and its citizens. He was a distinguished alumnus of the University of Delaware, serving its board and supporting its School of Agriculture. This archival collection of the Senator J. Allen Frear, Jr. papers reflects his profound and personal interest in the welfare of Delawareans during the 1950s. Constituent correspondence, legislation and reports found throughout the collection are testimony to Senator Frear's congressional accomplishments on behalf of the state and its citizens.

Scope and Contents

The Armistead Browning, Jr. papers contain the professional, teaching, and business records of a notable landscape architect and environmentalist, created over a period of 21 years from 1956 to 1987. The papers chronicle Browning’s experience at three architectural firms, two main centers of education, and with numerous independent projects, symposia and workshops. The collection provides a unique look into the activities of a prolific landscape architect, providing insight into planning processes, design and documentation. In addition, it reveals subjects of personal interest that greatly impacted Browning’s professional life. The collection is divided into ten series; “Selected papers, 1956–1987,” “Family and personal material, 1966–1987,” “Writings, 1974–1987,” “Teaching materials, 1977–1987,” “Brandywine Valley Association, 1977–1987,” “Business records, 1976-1987,” “Architectural designs, 1971–1987,” “Subject files, 1971–1987,” “Slides, 1971–1987,” and “Artifacts.” Several of these series are further divided into subseries.

Series I, “Selected papers, 1956-1987” consists of four boxes of material that were arranged, described and microfilmed by Ms. Frances Hundt in June 1989. This material appears to have been selected from the larger contents of the collection and Ms. Hundt’s notes regarding removal are, usually, contained within folders. Materials in this series include articles regarding Armistead W. Browning, Jr.; lectures addressing topics such as landscape design, Japanese gardens, native plants, meadows, ecology and the practice of landscape architecture; courses taught by Browning at the University of Delaware, Longwood Gardens, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania; information regarding Turtle Creek Farm, Turtle Creek Conservation Center, the Brandywine Valley Association (BVA), and Myrick Conservation Center; published writings by Browning; projects; issues; some of Browning’s student work; field notes, field books, and formal and informal notebooks; and engagement calendars. The materials in this series date from 1971 to 1987. Researchers should be aware that this series is a sampling of the remainder of the collection and it will be necessary to examine more than one series in order to find all of the material on a specific topic. Because this series has been microfilmed, Ms. Hundt's order was maintained during archival processing and no attempt was made to incorporate materials of the same topic. Microfilm of the "Selected papers, 1956-1987" is available in Special Collections.

Series II, “Family and personal material, 1966–1987,” includes documentary material concerning Browning’s nonprofessional activities and personal business, social activities and interactions with his family. Materials in this series include personal letters and correspondence, photographs, awards and honors, professional licenses and certificates, newspaper clippings regarding Browning, and notes taken by Browning during his time as a student of Landscape Architecture at Columbia University. Also included are a number of files marked by Armistead Browning, Jr. as “Treasures,” including advertisements, writings, correspondence and photographs. This series also contains documentation concerning a building referred to in design documents as the “Browning Solution,” a cabin or small residence that Browning designed for himself and his wife as well as several genealogies of the du Pont family. Browning’s mother, Mary Van Dyke Harvey, was a direct descendant of Charles Irénée du Pont through her mother Renée de Pelleport du Pont, who married LeRoy Harvey, mayor of Wilmington from 1921-1923. Several oversized design plans and blueprints can be found in this series and are primarily related to Browning’s log cabin at Turtle Creek Farm, the “Browning Solution,” and surveys of Pocopson Township. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series III, “Writings, 1974–1987,” includes manuscripts and articles written by Browning for both business and personal reasons. Materials in this series include notebooks that document University of Delaware class field trips, the article "Design Makes the Garden," co-authored with architect A.E. Bye, and drafts of several articles in the “Notes from Turtle Creek” newspaper column series. Also included are notes relating to the publicity of Turtle Creek Design and Turtle Creek Environmental Center, which were both businesses owned and operated by Browning. There is a collection of adapted Bible stories written by Browning and entitled "Bawdy Backroom Bible Ballads." This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series IV, “Teaching materials, 1977–1987,” includes documentation relating to classes taught by Browning at Longwood Gardens and the University of Delaware, where the bulk of Browning’s teaching activity took place. In addition, this series includes material related to lectures and speeches given at various events, universities, conferences and seminars throughout his career. This series is divided into three subseries; “Longwood Gardens, 1977–1987,” “University of Delaware, 1978–1986,” and “Other lectures, addresses and symposia, 1977–1987.” Subseries A, “Longwood Gardens, 1977–1987,” includes documentation relating to classes taught at Longwood Gardens, a one thousand-acre horticultural facility that includes horticultural education programs among its many activities. Included in the series are records relating to the Professional Gardener Training Program, in which Browning was heavily involved. These particular records include: handouts covering horticultural topics like patios and decks, planting patterns and ornamental trees and shrubs; course evaluations, class schedules, assignment details, syllabi, and letters of recommendation. It appears that Browning used many of the same teaching tools regardless of the institution hosting the course or type of students attending the course. As a result, many of the handouts and exercises will be found in many files throughout this series. A number of oversized designs and plans can also be found in this subseries, which includes material created by students of the Professional Garden Training Program. Plans documenting “The Weekend Gardener,” an exhibition garden designed by Browning for Longwood Gardens, can be found in series VI. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries B, “University of Delaware, 1978–1986,” includes records relating to courses taught by Browning at the University of Delaware’s College of Agricultural Science, Department of Plant Sciences. Courses represented in this series are Basic Landscape Design (PLS332), Japanese Gardens of Landscape Design (PLS 367), Landscape Construction I (PLS 331) and others. Materials concerning these classes include course syllabi, class rosters, handouts, assignment descriptions and studio exercise guidelines. Also included is a large selection of student work, limited primarily to oversized architectural designs and plans, but also including several term papers and theses. Designs and plans created by students in response to course problems or exercises can also be found here. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries C, “Other lectures, addresses and symposia, 1977–1987,” includes material relating to any courses, lectures, or other instructional activities conducted at sites outside of the University of Delaware or Longwood Gardens. The materials in this series consist primarily of lecture transcripts and notes, and cover activities at the Canterbury Garden Club, Conservation and Ecology Symposium, Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs, the New York Botanical Garden, as well as numerous other clubs, symposia, centers and gardens. There are also records relating to single classes taught by Browning at other universities, such as Design and the Natural Landscape at Harvard University, and Design of the Environment at the University of Pennsylvania. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series V, “Brandywine Valley Association, 1977–1987,” houses records documenting Browning’s interactions with the Association, a small organization devoted to environmental education and the preservation of the Brandywine Valley watershed which flows through Chester County in Pennsylvania to Wilmington, Delaware. Materials in this series include meeting minutes and notes, reports and event descriptions relating to the Association’s Myrick Center, and documentation of Association initiatives such as the closing of scenic roads, the Land Stewardship Program, and local conservation plans. Also found in this series is a large quantity of records concerning the Association’s acquisition of a large acreage owned by the Battin family; this includes legal surveys, topographical maps, purchase agreements, payment schedules and various notes and reports. Designs and plans related to land acquisition, land survey and new construction for the Brandywine Valley Association (BVA) can also be found here. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series VI, “Business records, 1976–1987,” includes documentation related to various non-design elements of Browning’s three major businesses. Records concerning landscaping projects, design plans, and construction have been excluded and can be found in Series VII. Series VI is divided into three subseries, each containing records pertinent to a single business; “Locust Grove, 1981–1984,” “Turtle Creek Designs, 1978-1987” and “Turtle Creek Environmental Center, 1977–1983.” Subseries A, “Locust Grove, 1981–1984,” contains material specifically related to Browning’s landscape architecture firm, Locust Grove Design. The name of this company was initially "Strangegarden," and any material referring to that name has been placed in this subseries as well. Materials include letterhead and logo designs, stock options, name change records, and a small quantity of financial and business transaction records. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject. Subseries B, “Turtle Creek Design, 1978-1987” contains material relating to Browning’s landscape architecture firm, Turtle Creek Design, which was founded in partnership with a promising graduate of Browning’s classes at the University of Delaware. Material in this subseries includes banking and insurance records, vendor lists, plant and equipment catalogs, letterhead designs, employee resumes and a small amount of correspondence relating to design projects. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject. Subseries C, “Turtle Creek Environmental Center, 1977–1983,” contains material relating to Browning’s one-man private practice, which engaged primarily in landscape design for private residences and consultation in environmental management projects. Material in this subseries focuses primarily on the Center’s founding and conceptualization, and includes concept statements, a foundation announcement, experiments in new farm design, and drafts of services offered. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject. Series VII, “Architectural designs, 1971–1987,” consists of material relating directly to landscape architecture projects, or the planning of projects, that were undertaken by Browning, his companies or his students. This series is divided into two subseries; A. "Project files, 1969–1987,” and B. “Drawings, 1969–1987.” Subseries A, “Project files, 1969–1987,” contains documentary material relating to the preparation and execution of landscape architecture design projects. These materials consist primarily of correspondence with clients, design schedules, cost estimates, materials lists, purchase orders and general design notes. Some large design plans and blueprints can also be found accompanying project material. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by client name or subject, in the case of unidentified clients. Subseries B, “Drawings, 1969–1987,” contains a large quantity of oversized design plans, blueprints, and topographical maps that were produced during the project activities of Browning’s firms and private business, or that were marked as reference materials in those projects. Reference material has been arranged alphabetically by subject or project name. Researchers should consult both the project files and the drawings. Please consult Special Collections staff before requesting the oversized drawings.

Series VIII, “Subject files, 1971–1987,” contains materials collected by and of interest to Armistead W. Browning, Jr. Subjects in this series range widely in scope, but are focused primarily on architectural and ecological issues, as well as environmental conservation. Subjects include, but are not limited to: acid rain, animal rights, black walnuts, cicadas, endangered species, food safety, global warming, gypsy moths, meadows, Native Americans, nuclear power, recycling and wildflowers. Also included are materials relating to Cabbages and Kings, an informal organization of landscaping professionals, and the Pocopson Township Planning Commission, both of which claimed Browning as a member. Materials included in this series consist primarily of newspaper and article clippings, meeting minutes, brochures and pamphlets, and handwritten notes. It should be noted that in many cases the original titles assigned by Browning to these files have been maintained. As a result, a number of titles of importance to the creator remain unchanged, such as; “the sky,” “weird things to save,” “life and love,” and “fire and brimstone.” This series also contains a large quantity of oversized material, including maps and aerial photographs, posters, large sized prints, and designs and plans which could not be identified. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series IX, “Slides, 1971–1987,” contains Browning’s personal and professional slide collection. Subjects range from personal slide photographs of Browning’s cats, to slide photographs documenting his many landscape projects. Many of the slides in this series include nature photography, taken by Browning over the course of his life and used in his teaching. There are a large number of “miscellaneous” or “multiple topic” slides – the result of multiple attempts at arrangement from various sources. For the most part, however, the slides retain Browning’s own titles. They have been arranged alphabetically.

Series X, “Artifacts,” consists of three boxes of physical objects collected by Browning during the course of business or class field trips. These boxes were, at the time of donation, identified as “Teddy’s treasures.” Many of the items are natural or biological, and include pinecones, turtle shells, horseshoe crab shells, samples of owl scat and pellets and creek water, animal skulls, reptile eggs, snakeskins, and very large quantities of varying types of rock. Most of the material has been identified and labeled by Browning, including the date and location where each item was initially found.

Scope and Contents

The Conard-Pyle Company records contain material relating to the business activities of an influential and successful nursery company located in West Grove, Pennsylvania, created just before the turn of the 20th century. The records chronicle Conard-Pyle’s evolution from a small-scale retail business to an influential wholesaler that pioneered mail-order sale of rose plants, as well as the financial, legal and marketing concerns of a major nursery company. The collection provides a unique look at the activities of a large-scale plant nursery, providing insight into the processes of plant breeding, patenting, marketing, licensing, and sales. In addition, the collection serves as a window to the nursery industry as a whole, due to significant correspondence between Conard-Pyle and other nurseries and materials relating to professional organizations and trade societies within the nursery community.

Subjects represented in the collection are diverse. There is cultural as well as horticultural and botanical information about roses, and also information about the legal processes of patenting new rose hybrids and licensing nurseries to allow them to grow the new roses. The collection serves as a case study for several important business innovations. Conard-Pyle used branding to identify its superior products and exploited beautiful color printing in trade catalogs for the mail order sale of roses. There are extensive records of its advertising campaigns, marketing strategies, and promotional events. Conard-Pyle also established international partnerships for research and development of roses, famously by partnering with the French hybridizer Francis Meilland. The company also fostered international research with its trainee exchange program, and emerged as an industry leader through active participation in the American Association of Nurserymen, the All-America Rose Selections, the National Association of Plant Patent Owners, and other professional organizations.

The collection is divided into eleven series and maintains large filing series as originally organized by the company: I. Company administration and operation, 1911–1999; II. Financial records, 1897–1997; III. Legal records, 1903–1981; IV. Patents and licensing, 1931–1999; V. Marketing, promotions and advertising, 1897-2000; VI. Meilland, 1947–1992; VII. Images, audio and film, 1900–1995; VIII. Professional organizations, 1925–1997; IX. Trade shows, 1964–1998; X. Individual flowers, 1905–1991; and XI. Plaques, awards, and ephemera, 1915–1997. Several of these series are further divided into subseries.

See each series in the container list for more extensive description of the contents in each series.

Series IV, “Cleveland Morris papers, 1973-1999,” includes materials from Morris’s career as co-founder and Artistic Director of the Delaware Theatre Company. His papers are further divided into seven subseries: “Administrative records, 1978-1997,” “Financial records, 1978-1998,” “Development and outreach, 1973-1998,” “Subject files, 1978-1996,” “Seasons, 1979-1999,” “Plays and productions, 1981-1998,” and “Actors and Playwrights, 1984-1998.”

Subseries A, “Administrative records, 1978-1997,” houses Morris’ copies of the Delaware Theatre Company Board of Directors and Executive Committee meeting materials. These files include meeting minutes, correspondence, memoranda and budget information. Much of this documentation can be found elsewhere throughout the collection. Unique to Morris’ papers, however, are files containing Delaware Theatre Company hiring information. Most of this information documents two managing director searches that took place between 1988 and 1991. This information includes Search Committee meeting minutes and correspondence, as well as applications and resumes. Also included in this subseries is a significant portion of long-range planning documentation. Files are organized alphabetically according to subject, and then chronologically within each subject.

Subseries B, “Financial records, 1978-1998,” is composed of Morris’ copies of the Delaware Theatre Company’s financial records. This information includes budget reports and financial statements for individual departments and projects. Operating budgets and purchase orders are contained in this subseries, as well as records from the public's financial contributions. Please note that most budget information can be found in Subseries A, along with the Board of Directors and Executive Committee meeting materials. All files are organized alphabetically according to subject and/or record type, and then chronologically within each group.

Subseries C, “Development and outreach, 1973-1998,” contains materials relating to Delaware Theatre Company’s educational programming, development planning, and special events. Subjects include benefit and fundraiser planning information, annual playwright competitions, and educator workshops. This subseries also includes grant applications and related records, particularly to the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Humanities Forum. There is significant documentation from the early 1990s regarding DTC’s Haunted House. These files include volunteer applications, location information and promotional materials. In addition, throughout the 1980s and 1990s, DTC sponsored a number of trips to England for the general public. These materials include itineraries, correspondence and Morris’ personal memontos from the trips, including photographs. Also included in this subseries are records related to tours and festivals in which DTC took part, including a Spanish language tour in the mid-1990s, and a theater exchange with the Watford Palace Theatre in the United Kingdom. Finally, subscriber surveys, student responses and subscriber roundtable minutes and information can be found here. The files are arranged alphabetically according to subject, and chronologically within each subject.

Subseries D, “Subject files, 1978-1996,” contains Morris’ personal and professional files. Morris’ professional development materials include articles, books and brochures from the late 1970s and early 1980s regarding theater administration and non-profit management. Organizations that Morris was involved in on an individual basis, such as the Theatre Communications Group, are also represented. This subseries also contains Morris’ collected memorabilia from Delaware Theatre Company’s history, including ephemera from DTC’s tenth and fifteenth anniversary celebrations. Morris’ personal and professional correspondence with board members, friends, and fellow artists can also be found here. There are a number of letters regarding the Reamer Tribute Fund, made in honor of board member Terry Reamer. This subseries also contains a number of news clippings on DTC and various actresses. The files are arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries E, “Seasons, 1979-1999,” contains materials regarding Delaware Theatre Company’s yearly season planning. Included are show ideas, season plans and information related to the finalized productions. Files are arranged chronologically according to season.

Subseries F, “Plays and Productions, 1981-1998” contains materials related to Morris’ role as artistic director of Delaware Theatre Company’s productions. Included are scripts, musical scores, director’s notebooks, and production files. These production files contain director’s notes, design and blocking information, actor information, and auditions. Letters to Morris from friends and family, often regarding opening night, are included in every production file. Interspersed throughout the files are slides and photographs from the productions, as well as play posters. At the end of the subseries there are records related to productions that, despite being performed at the Delaware Theatre Company, were produced individually of the seacon. These records also included play ideas that were not produced. These final files are arranged alphabetically, while the bulk of the files are arranged chronologically by season.

Subseries G, “Actors and Playwrights, 1984-1998,” chronicles Morris’ relationship with his creative contacts. Included is Morris’ correspondence with actors, the Actors Equity Association, and playwrights, as well as audition schedules and actors' resumes. The files are arranged alphabetically by subject, and arranged chronologically within subjects.

Series VII, “Play and production files, 1980-1999,” contains materials related to Delaware Theatre Company’s production planning; including set design, casting, script adaptation, lighting, and rehearsal. Documentation of these subjects was organized, at creation, into production-specific groups: production files, which document casting, prop selection and other pre-planning activities; production notes, which document stage direction, set design and other general planning activities; and production books, which include both production files and notes. Also included are stage manager’s reports, which document and evaluate individual performances after a production has opened. Stage manager’s reports may also be included in production books. The material is organized chronologically by season, with productions arranged in the order in which they appeared in the DTC performance schedule.

Series VIII, “Printed materials, 1979-2000,” contains published material relating to Delaware Theatre Company’s productions, outreach and subscriber communication. The series chronicles DTC’s public relations efforts and includes season brochures, subscriber letters and subscription information. Play development documentation, as well as playbills, play pamphlets, posters, and advertisements are also series. Flyers promoting special events such as the Barefoot Ball and Gateway Fest are included. Also within this series are many editions of Encore, the Delaware Theatre Company newsletter. The majority of the material in this series was transferred directly from DTC’s print archives, and remains in the order in which it was received. Materials are arranged chronologically.

Series IX, “Press files, 1975-1997,” contains press releases and newspaper clippings related to DTC productions. The material is arranged chronologically.

Series X, “Films and ephemera, 1982-1983,” contains the collection’s most unique material. There are film recordings of Aloes,  Philoctetes, and  Grande's Finale, as well as a t-shirt from the Theatre Arts Summer Day Camp and the ribbon cut during the opening ceremonies of DTC’s waterfront theater facility.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of three volumes of patient information kept at the infirmary of the Eastern State Penitentiary from 1840 to 1868. The volumes present monthly summaries of cases, and provide some remarks based on post mortem examinations.

The earliest volume, dating from 1840 to 1843, gives daily tallies of patients, their diseases, and the progress of their diseases. The volume also includes monthly summaries of patients, with a separate tally for African American patients. In addition, there are yearly tabular views of the cases or African American prisoners and one tabular view of the cases of white prisoners in 1841.

The second volume, dating from 1844 to 1855, and the third volume, dating from 1855 to 1868, consist of monthly summaries of patients, their diseases, race, gender, and progress of their diseases. These two volumes also include post mortem reports.

Scope and Contents

The Karl Wolfgang Böer papers supplement contains the publications, scientific notes, and other papers documenting the professional activities of Karl Wolfgang Böer, a preeminent physicist who pioneered the development of solar energy. This collection is divided into five series: "Academic and professional activities, 1954-2004," "Professional Writings, 1958-2005," "Slides, 1973-1981," "Films, 1960s," and "Biographical and personal material, 1953-2009."

Series I, "Academic and professional activities, 1954-2004," includes material relating to Dr. Böer’s work in individual and corporate research, as well as his activities at the University of Delaware. The series is divided into two subseries: "Professional activities, 1954-2004" and "University of Delaware – teaching, 1969-2004." The first subseries, "Professional activities," is further subdivided into nine sub-subseries: "Technical memorandums," "Technical information transfers," "Technical reports," "Task force notes," "Solar energy research and reports," "International Solar Energy Society," "Correspondence," "Awards," and "Drafts and notes."

“Technical Memorandums, 1979-1981" includes memorandums sent and received by Dr. Böer and his colleagues over the course of his many research initiatives. The memorandums cover a large variety of subjects, including cost/benefit analyses of projects, information sharing, and confidentiality, though the majority consists of highly technical details concerning specific research projects. The material is organized chronologically.

“Technical Information Transfers, 1981" includes documents received by Dr. Böer during his work with Solar Energy Systems (SES), which describe formal information transfers between the Institute of Energy Conversion (IEC) and SES. The transferred information pertains to IEC research into the efficiency of materials used in solar panel construction, including cadmium sulfide/copper sulfide heterojunction cells and photovoltaic solar cells using zinc phosphide semiconductors. Documentation of these information transfers includes quarterly and annual research reports, patent disclosures, and copies or abstracts of reports authored by research project participants. All research information referenced in this material was generated in the course of projects sponsored by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). This series contains only one file, which contains multiple reports.

“Technical Reports, 1967-1980" includes copies of technically descriptive or research reports authored by Dr. Böer to describe the results, processes, and procedures of his current laboratory research. The majority of the reports are related to Dr. Böer’s research at the University of Delaware. Both reprinted and unpublished versions of the reports are included. In addition, this subseries includes project status reports for the CdS Characterization project undertaken in 1980. These reports, supplied to Dr. Böer from each project leader, detail the developments, triumphs, and setbacks in research and experimentation from the project’s launch to its conclusion. The material is arranged with published materials listed first, followed by unpublished materials. Project-specific reports are filed last.

“Task force notes, 1981" includes handwritten notes and typewritten reports detailing the findings of several project-based SES task forces. Each task force was assigned a specific task relating to SES business interests in the field of solar energy research. These tasks included scientific research into specific problems, such as "cell degradation at high operating voltages as characterized by losses in shunt resistance and short circuit current," as well as non-scientific tasks, such as including "market definition" and defining "technical services." All documents are internal, and are thus authored with the assumption that the reader had full knowledge of the scope and context of the contents. The documents themselves include summaries of task force problems and their proposed solutions, as well as evaluations of the resources, time, and processes needed to complete them. The material is organized numerically by task force number, beginning with task force "1" and ending with task force "8b" and the administrative subtask force..

“Solar energy research and reports, 1971-1997" includes material relating directly to the solar energy research conducted by Dr. Boer at the Institute of Energy Conversion at the University of Delaware. Notable among the material is a final draft of "Direct Solar Energy Conversion for Large Scale Terrestrial Use," a significant research effort into developing low-cost, high-efficiency solar power cells. Also included in this subseries is a large quantity of material relating to research conducted on "Solar One," a solar-powered house built to serve as a test laboratory for the Institute of Energy Conversion. The material is organized alphabetically by subject.

“International Solar Energy Society, 1971-2001" includes materials relating to the activities of the American Section of the International Solar Energy Society. These materials include correspondence, board and membership meeting minutes, budget material, material regarding the selection and relocation of the Section’s headquarters office, and details regarding the Society’s incorporation. The material is arranged alphabetically according to subject.

“Correspondence, 1969-2004" includes correspondence from Dr. Böer to individuals, or regarding specific events or subjects. Further documentation about these individuals does not appear in this collection. Individuals represented include Gerhard Mener, Heinz Hora, and Otfried Madelling. Subjects include the American Physical Society and the International Conference on Luminescence. The files in this series are limited to groups of correspondence stored together by Dr. Böer, and individual letters or brief correspondence may be found elsewhere in the collection. The material is arranged alphabetically by correspondent or subject.

“Awards, 1972-2003" includes material relating to both awards received by Dr. Böer, as well as the Karl W. Böer Solar Energy Award, issued in his honor. Specific material includes correspondence, programs, and clippings regarding awards received by Dr. Böer from 1972 to 2003, as well as material related to President Jimmy Carter’s receipt of the Karl W. Böer Award in 1993. Also included are the names of award nominees, as well as the Medal of Distinction Award. The material is arranged chronologically.

“Drafts and notes, 1954-2001" contains Böer’s scientific research, calculations, paper drafts, and conference preparation notes. The papers are arranged by Böer’s own organizational system, of which the only evidence was an ascending numerical order clearly visible on each file. Based on clusters of similarly themed files, the material appears to be arranged loosely by subject. However, no explicit relationship between assigned numbers and subject titles could be discerned. Many of the earlier papers are related to the Ovshinsky Effect, while later papers focus on solar cells and conductivity. Of particular interest are plans for an improved solar energy greenhouse at Longwood Gardens. It is important to note that Böer’s organizational system was previously maintained in the University of Delaware's Karl Wolfgang Böer papers, 1945-2003 (bulk 1961-1986), collection number MSS 483.

The second subseries, "University of Delaware – teaching, 1969-2004," contains material from Böer’s career as a professor in the University of Delaware’s physics and engineering programs. Included are Böer’s notes from courses he taught, research programs and proposals, and one student’s dissertation. Also included is Böer’s text entitled, “Introduction to Space-Charge Effects in Semiconductors.” Series II, "Professional writings, 1958-2005" is composed of Böer’s numerous papers published in journals and scholarly works. The earliest papers in the series were published while Böer was at Humboldt University, following him through his move to the University of Delaware, and continue through 2005. The publications that pre-date Böer’s move to the United States are written in German. In addition to a copy of the published paper, some folders may also include related correspondence, drafts, and research notes. Many of these papers were published in physica status soldi: the International Journal of Solid State Physics, of which Böer was a founding editor. The papers are organized according to Böer’s own numbering system, which is roughly chronological. A complete listing of Boer’s numbered publications can be found in Appendix A of the Karl Wolfgang Böer Papers, 1945-2003 (Collection MSS 483) finding aid. Any non-numbered publications can be found alphabetically at the end of the series, as well as any correspondence relating to Böer’s publications. Also included are published books edited by Böer,  Fifty-Year History of the International Solar Energy Society and Its National Sections, and the  Survey of Semiconductor Physics, Second Edition.

Series III, "Slides, 1973-1981," retains Böer’s original organization, in which slides are grouped by location or image content. Within these groups, slides are arranged chronologically. Slide presentation topics include the economics of solar energy, photovoltaics, CdS cells, CdS theory, and solar installations, as well as presentation slides for Böer’s formulas and equations. Also included are slide photos of the Institute of Energy Conservation’s (IEC) solar houses, the Solar One project, and early Solar Energy Systems (SES) presentations. Particularly interesting are slide photos of Böer’s own solar energy-powered home.

Series IV, "Films, 1960s" is a collection of reel films, most of which are housed in metal canisters and are undated. Approximately half carry German titles, which could not be fully translated but suggest content related to CdS theory or research. Based on these titles, as well as Dr. Böer’s extensive list of German-language publications, it is likely that film content is in German as well.

Series V, "Biographical and personal material, 1953-2009," contains Böer’s personal memorabilia. All files in this series were, upon receipt, observed to be grouped together and topically separated. The subjects documented in this series represent the only material in this collection documenting Dr. Böer’s private life, as opposed to the professional focus that constitutes the collection's bulk. Included in this series are early patents, written in German, and material related to Böer’s 70th birthday celebration in 1995. Also included are Ester Riehl's biographical work on Böer, and a book of poems, written by Böer in German, about his years in Berlin.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of one linear foot of correspondence relating to David Lenox's career following the Revolutionary War. In particular, these letters focus on land speculation, duties in the Whiskey Rebellion, executorship of estates, banking, personal business and household receipts, and records relating to the settlement of his estate.

Lenox handled the estates of John Lukens and Joseph Prowell. John Lukens (1720?-1789) served as Surveyor-General of Pennsylvania and Delaware from 1761 to 1776, and of Pennsylvania from 1781 to 1789. Major Joseph Prowell served in the Philadelphia Light Horse during the Revolutionary War, and in 1777, was commissioned a captain in the Pennsylvania Line, participating in battles at Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine and Germantown.

Included in the collection is Alexander Hamilton's and Richard Peters's letter of November 11, 1794, thanking Lenox for his government service, but urging him to the bedside of his sick wife. Also included are letters from Robert and William Pulsford advising Lenox on the financial affairs of the Washington Plantation. These letters contain discussions of the sale of slaves. Other correspondents include Horace Binney, William Bradford, George Fisher, Alexander Graydon, Robert Lenox, Levi Lincoln, various members of the Lukens family, various members of the Prowell family and Forsyth Smith and Co.

Scope and Contents

The Papers of Senator J. Allen Frear, Jr., are primarily those of his congressional career, when he represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1949-1960, though the collection also includes personal material from pre- and post-Congressional periods. The collection spans 1917-1963, with bulk dates 1949-1961 and a lesser bulk of material dating from 1920-1924. The collection consists of correspondence, memoranda, reports, legislation, speeches, clippings, photographs, and audio-visual material. Personal material includes correspondence, class notes, travel brochures and post cards, and memorabilia.

The vast majority of the collection was compiled during Senator Frear's two terms in the U.S. Senate and reflects the full range of responsibilities of that office. As far as possible, the original order of the files has been retained to document the functions of the office. There are four sub-groups of materials in the collection: I. Delaware and Delawareans, II. Legislative files, III. Administrative and Personal office files, and IV. Personal.

The first sub-group, Delaware and Delawareans, consists of file series documenting Senator Frear's congressional activities performed in the interest of his state, or with and for Delawareans. These files document work on behalf of constituents, such as supporting Academy recommendations, nominating postal employees, securing federal aid for state disasters, or providing information for individuals needing government assistance. The series of files in this sub-group include correspondence related to all aspects of dealing with the federal government, with most access points to file contents by topic, or federal agency or department.

The sub-group of Delaware and Delawareans also documents the "politicking" nature of senatorial duties and the networks which support effective performance in the office. The work of Senator Frear's staff is evident throughout the files, as are his contacts with Senate colleagues, government offices, and federal departments. The Delaware organizations, constituent bodies, and businesses represented in these files include social, labor, religious, educational, state government, industry, and agriculture groups. A number of invitations, public relations activities, political party engagements, and campaign files also reflect the complicated schedule Senator Frear met in representing his constituents.

The second sub-group, Legislative files, includes series documenting the legislative and committee functions of Senator Frear's office. The sub-group consists of working drafts and final bills and resolutions, background research for legislation, correspondence with congressional colleagues, and correspondence from constituents supporting, denouncing, or otherwise expressing opinions on legislation. The sub-group also includes voting records for examination of Frear's position on any vote during his two terms, and a small series of files from his committee work. Official records of committees are transferred to the National Archives, but the small amount of material here does give some record of the financial, banking, and economic scope of Senator Frear's committee assignments.

The third sub-group, Administrative and Personal office files, includes resourceful visitor and telephone logs maintained by the Senator's staff which provide quick summaries of the Senator's activities and personal appointments. In addition, the sub-group includes Senate manuals and procedures which may aid understanding of how Congress works.

The fourth sub-group, Personal, includes speeches, sound recordings, and photographs related to Frear's congressional career. In addition, the sub-group includes earlier material spanning 1917-1927, primarily from Frear's student days at the University of Delaware; and post-congressional material, primarily reflecting social engagements but providing a small glimpse of his association with the Securities Exchange Commission. The post-congressional series also includes followup files for Frear's earlier support of S. 200, for the relief of Du Pont-GM stockholders.

Detailed scope and content descriptions precede contents lists for each series.

Arrangement note

The congressional papers of Senator J. Allen Frear, Jr. have been organized into four sub-groups, the first three of which are comprised of filing series originally maintained in the Senator's office. The office staff used records management guidelines provided by the Secretary or some other office in the Senate. These guidelines assigned file number sequences to federal departments, agencies, and topics:

1 President (White House)

1A Bureau of the Budget

2 State Department

2A Passports and Visas

2B Displaced Persons

2C U.S. Information Agency

3 Treasury Department

etc. There is no hierarchical or otherwise logical arrangement to this filing scheme.

The arrangement of series in this collection closely follows the original numbering scheme, but also breaks the sequence into functional series; i.e., original file sequence 1 through 45, 47, 48, 50, 51, 59, and 60 comprise Federal Department files. Original file sequence 46, Delaware State files, has been separated as an independent series. Likewise, Case files (sequence 54), General Appointments (sequence 55), Post Office Files (sequence 56), and Academy files (sequences 63-65) have been separated as independent series.

The original filing sequence numbers have been retained in the contents list for the Federal Department files or otherwise explained in other series notes. Other series were not numbered in the original office filing system, but presented clear categories of material such as telephone logs, voting records, or photographs which could also be arranged functionally.

Processing Information note

The processing of this collection was made possible through generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources’ “Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives” Project.

This collection was minimally processed in 2009-2011, as part of an experimental project conducted under the auspices of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries to help eliminate processing backlog in Philadelphia repositories. A minimally processed collection is one processed at a less intensive rate than traditionally thought necessary to make a collection ready for use by researchers. When citing sources from this collection, researchers are advised to defer to folder titles provided in the finding aid rather than those provided on the physical folder.

Employing processing strategies outlined in Mark Greene's and Dennis Meissner's 2005 article, More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Processing Approaches to Deal With Late 20th-Century Collections, the project team tested the limits of minimal processing on collections of all types and ages, in 23 Philadelphia area repositories. A primary goal of the project, the team processed at an average rate of 2-3 hours per linear foot of records, a fraction of the time ordinarily reserved for the arrangement and description of collections. Among other time saving strategies, the project team did not extensively review the content of the collections, replace acidic folders or complete any preservation work.

This collection was minimally processed in 2009-2011, as part of an experimental project conducted under the auspices of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries to help eliminate processing backlog in Philadelphia repositories. A minimally processed collection is one processed at a less intensive rate than traditionally thought necessary to make a collection ready for use by researchers. When citing sources from this collection, researchers are advised to defer to folder titles provided in the finding aid rather than those provided on the physical folder.

Employing processing strategies outlined in Mark Greene's and Dennis Meissner's 2005 article, More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Processing Approaches to Deal With Late 20th-Century Collections, the project team tested the limits of minimal processing on collections of all types and ages, in 23 Philadelphia area repositories. A primary goal of the project, the team processed at an average rate of 2-3 hours per linear foot of records, a fraction of the time ordinarily reserved for the arrangement and description of collections. Among other time saving strategies, the project team did not extensively review the content of the collections, replace acidic folders or complete any preservation work.

The creation of the electronic guide for this collection was made possible through generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources’ “Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives” Project.

Appraisal note

The original extent of the Frear papers was substantially reduced in processing, as is often the case with large 20th-century congressional collections. The original files included many items suitable for simple appraisal decisions: mailing envelopes, carbons of office correspondence, duplicates of speeches, and government publications.

Sampling techniques were also used throughout the collection because of the volume of repetitive and redundant constituent correspondence. For example, it was not unusual for Senator Frear to receive several hundred letters on a single legislative issue, all expressing basically the same point of view. In some cases, Senator Frear received mimeographed form letters or post-cards, all repeating the same message. In response, Senator Frear often sent "robos" or form letters. The researcher may assume that representative samples of correspondence were saved throughout files of legislative issue mail. In some cases, processor's explanatory notes have been recorded on acid-free paper and interfiled in the correspondence.

In this collection, appraisal decisions were made at the series level for two entire series. Case files (series E. under the first sub-group of Delaware and Delawareans) were deemed highly personal in nature and of little research value, so the series was completely discarded. A more thorough description of original file contents for this series is available in the finding aid, so the Case files series has retained an intellectual place within the series outline for the collection.

A second series, "the Blues" was also entirely discarded. These were routine carbon copies of all outgoing correspondence filed in alphabetical order by name of recipient.

There was significant sampling throughout the collection, so the lessened index value of "the Blues" and the large size of the file were factors in the decision to discard the series. "The Blues" are not described in further detail and are not reflected in the series outline for the collection. (They would have appeared in the Administrative and Personal Office files subgroup.)

Series I. Company administration and operation, 1891-1999.

Scope and Contents note

Series I, “Company administration and operation, 1891-1999,” contains material related to the daily operation of Conard-Pyle Company. This series is further subdivided into seven subseries: “General correspondence and memoranda, 1891-1997,” "Foreign correspondence, 1938-1994,” “Employees, 1925-1996,” “Sam Rizzi, Senior Vice President, 1983-1991,” “Speeches, trips, and events, 1944-1993,” “Research and registrations, 1911-1997,” and “Company operation files, 1962-1999.” Original folder titles were retained whenever possible.

Subseries A, “General correspondence and memoranda, 1891-1997,” contains the correspondence of Conard-Pyle staff, as well as intra- and inter-office memoranda. Subjects include correspondence relating to financial, legal and general issues, in addition to correspondence with garden clubs, fellow rose growers, hybridizers, and business associates. Of particular interest are correspondence books dating from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, correspondence regarding Conard-Pyle controversies, and sympathy letters sent following the death of Sidney B. Hutton, Sr. This series is arranged alphabetically.

Subseries B, “Foreign correspondence, 1938-1994,” contains correspondence between representatives of the Conard-Pyle Company with individuals, other nursery companies, and rose societies in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand. Correspondence topics include new rose varieties and rose trials, as well as arrangements for licensing, purchasing and selling plant products internationally. This series is arranged alphabetically by country name, and further alphabetized by correspondent. Miscellaneous correspondence can be found at the end of each country listing.

Subseries C, “Employees, 1925-1996,” contains material related to Conard-Pyle Company staffing, staff activities, and an extensive international industrial trainee program. There are office files regarding employee duties, as well as multiple versions of Conard-Pyle’s employee policies, guides and handbooks. The bulk of this subseries is comprised of files concerning individual trainees, primarily from France, Germany, and England, and the materials relating to their recruitment. Additional information related to the history of Conard-Pyle employees may be found in Series II. Financial Records, in a file related to the labor costs of German prisoners of war who were employed at the nursery between 1943-1945 (Box 21, F53). This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries D, “Sam Rizzi, Senior Vice President, 1983-1991,” contains the records of Conard-Pyle Senior Vice President Sam Rizzi. A Certified Public Accountant, Rizzi worked his way from financial officer to Sales Manager, before becoming Senior Vice President at Conard-Pyle. Materials in this subseries include travel itineraries for staff trips both at home and abroad; speeches, including those of Richard and Sidney Hutton; correspondence; and meeting minutes. Also included is a large selection of material relating to the planning, marketing and execution of Red Rose Rent Day. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries E, “Speeches, trips and events, 1944-1993,” includes materials related to staff trips, both within the United States and abroad. Employees represented include Sidney B. Hutton Sr., Sidney B. Hutton Jr., or “Beany,” Richard Hutton, Robert Pyle, Richard Vanderbilt, Steve Hutton, George Hart, and George Ohlhus. Traveling staff members maintained travelogues and diaries detailing their trips, and, in addition, sent frequent letters and reports that were sent back to Company headquarters. This subseries also contains copies of speeches given at events, as well as published articles written by Conard-Pyle staff. In addition, materials related to Conard-Pyle’s celebration of Red Rose Rent Day can be found here. This event, held annually in September, celebrated the symbolic yearly rent payment of one red rose for the Conard-Pyle-owned Red Rose Inn. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries F, “Research and registrations, 1911-1997,” contains a collection of research articles, plant reports, and gardening ‘how-tos’, many of which were likely used as reference materials by Conard-Pyle staff. Subjects represented here include rose propagation, industry customer service, soil conservation, and under-glass rose cultures. This subseries also includes pesticide and fertilizer registrations for Pennsylvania and Maryland. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Subseries G, “Company operation files, 1962-1999,” document the Company's daily operations. Materials are primarily administrative in nature and are not directly related to growing or hybridizing roses. For example, Chester County business directories, office equipment brochures, and office supply order lists are typical of the type of information researchers will find. Of particular interest are historical summaries of Conard-Pyle, of which there are several. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.
