Date createdFebruary 17 1948
DescriptionLetter from C. E. Godshalk to Jean Morton Cudahy updating her on happenings around the Arboretum. Godshalk was glad to hear Mrs. Watts' talk for the Conservation group of the Garden Club of America went well. Miss Arthur followed Mrs. Watts plans while teaching her evening class. Last year Mrs. Watts suggested Godshalk contact Life Magazine to do an article about the landscape class, so more people would hear about it. Godshalk didn't do anything about the suggestion, but last night several people in the class also suggested it. If Mrs. Cudahy thinks this is a good idea, he will contact Life Magazine. They are having some mild weather which is melting some of the snow. Palm and Palm have finished the upstairs at Thornhill except for the marbleizing around the information window. He hopes he will still be able to get the bird room plastered. Loehman will be through with the hog house this week, then they will get Nordine's roof on and the shingles on Johnson's house. Then he hopes they can get started on the outside restrooms. Arnold and Jones are waxing the floors in the Administration Building. He is glad Mrs. Cudahy had a chance to go to New York to attend Mrs. Watts' talk and visit her sister-in-law.
