Photograph by George R. King, American
Hemlock Hill, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, United States
George R. King, author of One Hundred Views of American Parks, photographed many early landscape views of the Arboretum grounds. Lisa Pearson, Head of the Library and Archives, came across one curious find in our collections — King’s photograph of Galen Clark and the Mariposa Grove (now part of Yosemite National Park). The library will continue to daylight special finds from our Visual Archives, which includes over 50,000 photographs and maps.
