Description
Sketch of proposed Sterling Morton Library Reading Garden wall with tiles near the top featuring the names of prominent botanical figures alternating with tiles featuring different plants.

Text written in bottom left corner:
A suggestion for a row of tiles as a part of the wall of the Reading Garden. Probably they should be soft tan with the picture tiles in black and the name in a red-brown?

Five names on tiles alongside plant tiles toward top of wall:
Carolus Linnaeus
Andre Michaux
Pierre Joseph Redouté
Le Notre
Kristian Konrad Sprengel
