Description

Written on drawing by unknown hand: "This is a copy of the drawing that Mr. Gray sent Mrs. Farrand July 7th,1934 in regard to a wall which is to replace the hedge, D Terrace."

William Gray was Dumbarton Oaks' first head gardener or Superintendent with his tenure lasting from 1922-1937. It is possible he created the drawing or someone else created it, and he simply sent it to Beatrix Farrand.

Also written on drawing: "Difference in grades East to West 1'-3"."

Drawing undated, probably created in 1934.
