The Cultural Landscape Foundation would like to thank the many people who contributed to making the Harriet Pattison Oral History a reality.
A project such as this comes to life through the efforts of many individuals and organizations. Thank you to Harriet Pattison and Nathaniel Kahn for making time in their schedules for the June and July 2015 interviews and location shoots. Nathaniel Kahn also generously provided footage from his movie, My Architect. A very special thanks goes to Bill Whitaker for providing insight, guidance, and generous access to the drawings from the Kahn, Patton, Pattison, and Venturi, Scott Brown Collections, as well as allowing us to film in the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania. Carole Gravagno allowed us to film at her beautiful garden. Larry Korman was extremely generous with his property and the visual materials on his website. Joseph Karr shared his personal photos of Dan Kiley’s office, and Aaron Kiley, through family photographs and video footage, opened a unique perspective into Dan Kiley’s office and personality. Suzy Brown, Madeline Grimes, and their staff allowed us to film at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park and shared extensive images and ephemera of the day the site was dedicated. Brenda Danilowitz and her staff at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation supported us through their generosity of materials. The Hershey Company and, in particular, Jeff Beckman provided permission to film at their corporate headquarters. Andy Kaplan of the Francis Parker School shared excellent images of “Toy Shop” and other school activities. Patricia O’Donnell shared historic images of the Camden Amphitheater. Judith Tankard pointed me in the right direction with newspaper clippings and Richard Bumstead helped me source images from the University of Chicago. Thanks, also, to the Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record/Historic American Landscapes Survey and to Wikimedia Commons, which proved invaluable in illustrating this oral history. With thoughtful foresight, Mark Gunderson filmed the Kimbell Art Museum grounds immediately before the construction of the Piano Pavilion and made those clips available. We are especially grateful to the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), our Annual Sponsor, for the entire oral history series.
There were many generous funders for this oral history, including the National Endowment for the Arts, Hubbard Educational Trust, Nathaniel Kahn, and Leslie Rose Close.
