Seeking information on the gardens of Whitemarsh Hall in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania

Whitemarsh Hall in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, was designed by Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938) in 1916 for Edward and Eva Stotesbury. In turn, the gardens were designed by Jacques-Henri-Auguste Gréber (1882-1962). Within the collections of The University of Pennsylvania there are photographs of preliminary renderings that appeared in The Delineator Magazine in 1916, but the original drawings have yet to be located.   

Do you have any information about where to find the original plans for the garden at Whitemarsh Hall?
