Seeking Information about Landscape Architect John H. Small, III
Oct 17, 2018

John H. Small, III, earned an M.L.A. from Cornell University in 1913 and soon joined his family's business, a landscape design firm and floral shops established by his grandfather in Washington, D.C., in 1855. By 1923 J.H. Small & Sons was advertising itself as “landscape contractors” rather than florists, and during the 1920s and 1930s, Small, III, created a number of residential landscapes in middle-class suburbs noted for their simplicity and sensitivity to context and topography. These included Foxhall Village in Washington, D.C.; Greenwich Forest in Bethesda, Maryland; and Hilltop Manor Apartments in Bladensburg, Maryland.

Do you have any additional information about John H. Small, III, especially about his work on Washington, D.C.'s, Spring Valley neighborhood in the 1920s?
