Cranbrook House, Inventory and Appraisal of House and Gardens, [1983?]
SERIES I: Administrative (1954-2005) contains the official records and related papers of the officers, boards, and committees of the Cranbrook Gardens Auxiliary, the Cranbrook House Auxiliary, and--after 1975--the combined Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary. Included in this series are board, committee, and annual meeting minutes and related documents; financial reports and statements; directories; membership forms and information; official calendars; guidelines and policies; press releases; and summary records of volunteer hours. In addition, what little documentary evidence remains regarding the pre-auxiliary attempts to organize volunteer attention to the Cranbrook House gardens is contained in this series.
SERIES II: Correspondence (1951-1998) contains both internal and external correspondence.
SERIES III: Topical (1950-2006) includes significant material related to the activities and interests of the Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary’s membership, as well as a small amount of material pre-dating the Auxiliary, but nonetheless concerned with Cranbrook House and gardens, that was transferred to the Archives along with the Auxiliary collection. This series contains correspondence, newspaper clippings, calendars, sketches, and other material documenting significant people, events, and objects related to the Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary.
SERIES IV: Printed Material (1951-1995) contains items printed by or for the Auxiliary, including informational brochures, printed guides to both Cranbrook House and its gardens, a cookbook, postcards, and the Auxiliary newsletter.
SERIES V: Photographs (1982-1986) contains pictures of the launching of the restored Lake Como boat Nellie on Kingswood Lake on 11 July 1986, as well as pictures of a few people affiliated with the Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary.
Access to the collection is unrestricted.
