Description

Drawing unsigned. Beatrix Farrand created drawings for the loggia seat and leg support in 1932, GD I-3-61AGD I-3-61B and GD I-3-62. It is possible Ruth Havey created the drawing under the direction of Beatrix Farrand or under her own landscape architecture practice that she established in 1940.

Undated, probably created between 1940, the year Dumbarton Oaks was donated to Harvard University after which it was known as Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, and 1967 when Ruth Havey's design role ended.

Written on drawing in pencil: F.S.D.
