Library photographs

Series consists of 35mm slide photographs collected by the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association and maintained by the library at the garden to be used as a botanical reference tool, to document the history of activities and events that took place at the garden, and to document research conducted by staff and volunteers about topics related to activites at the gardens such as photographs of gardens in other cities, or photographs of specimens in their native habitats.

The series is divided into two subseries:

  • VanDusen subject photographs
  • Botanical specimen photographs

Botanical specimen photographs

The subseries consists of photographs of a specific plant, either showing the whole plant or a close-up of a particular part or parts such as leaves or flowers. Some photographs show multiple plants of the same or closely related varietals or species. Photographs in the subseries were organized alphabetically according to the formal botanical name of the plant featured in the photograph.

VanDusen subject photographs

The subseries consists of35mm slide photographs showing people, garden scenes, special events and other photographs not included in the Botanical specimens subseries (i.e., all photographs where the intent of the photographer was to document a larger scene, site, event or other subject, rather than a specific plant sample. Photographs in the subseries were arranged by the garden library based on a subject vocabulary created by the library, and given titles based on the content of the image.
