BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE Theodore E. and Lou Bird Landry were landscape architects of Port Allen, La. Theodore E. Landry was born in Mark, La., in 1899. In 1914 he began working at the Esso Refinery in Baton Rouge, and in 1920, he married Julia Louisa "Lou Bird." She was also from Mark, La., and a graduate of St. Joseph's Academy in Baton Rouge. The couple moved to Cinclare Plantation, West Baton Rouge Parish, in 1925, where they opened a nursery, Cottage Gardens, and began work with their first design. In 1934, they moved to Port Allen, and Theodore earned a license in landscape architecture, as did Lou Bird a few years later. The two established a firm in Port Allen. They were especially interested and active in projects to restore plantation gardens to historical accuracy and donated their services to landscape churches in the Baton Rouge diocese. They were active in numerous local and national organizations and received considerable acclaim for their professional work. Mr. Landry was among the small group of people who were responsible for establishing the professional status for landscape architecture in Louisiana, and who founded organizations that supported the early work of the profession. He was the first president of the Louisiana Landscape Association, and was equally active in state, regional, and national affairs of the American Society of Landscape Architects. His special interests included early Louisiana architecture and landscape architecture. Theodore also held a membership in L’Assemblee Francaise, an organization for the preservation of Louisiana's French heritage. Lou Bird Landry, like her husband, was also an authority on southern horticulture, and widely acknowledged in her area of expertise, receiving much recognition for her work in garden clubs and other civic organizations. Among Mr. and Mrs. Landry’s most significant contributions was the promotion of the preservation and restoration of plantation gardens along the Mississippi River. Especially noteworthy, was the degree of detail in their design drawings. They also traveled extensively in the U. S. and abroad, photographing projects wherever they visited. Their reputation for church landscape architecture work became so well known that they were invited to design the landscape for the Basilica de Esquipulas in Guatemala. The couple also lectured on landscaping, the history of gardening, and historic buildings. Theodore Landry continued to work at Esso, and before his retirement in 1958, he landscaped the grounds of the refinery. He died in 1980, and Lou Bird Landry died in 1983.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE Personal and professional papers include correspondence, printed material, lectures, scrapbooks, and client files. The major components of this collection consist of designs for churches, schools, parks and playgrounds, industrial sites, garden design for the historic plantation sites along the Mississippi River, and several hundred residences. Projects of note include the plantations Afton Villa, Madewood, Magnolia Vale (Natchez, Miss.), Poplar Grove, San Francisco, Oaklawn Manor, Arlington and Valcour Aime. Other notable work includes the Baton Rouge Esso (Exxon) refinery and several Catholic churches in the Baton Rouge diocese. Client files are comprised of correspondence, drawings, plans, photographs and color slides relating to landscape architecture work done for Louisiana, especially Baton Rouge area, plantations, churches, residences, schools, and businesses. Slides document professional projects on horticulture, historic and contemporary gardens, and architecture in the United States and abroad. All stages of the project illustrated, from the initial site planning through completion. Additionally, there are plans and detailed drawings, as well as photographs and schedules of numerous flower shows in Port Allen and Baton Rouge, La., including a group of slides span a period of twenty years. Reports of damage to trees and gardens caused by hurricanes and tornadoes are also present in this collection. Two scrapbooks record Theodore Landry's service in the Louisiana State Guard, 1942-1946, and Lou Bird Landry's participation in garden clubs. Printed materials are primarily programs and rosters from garden clubs and garden shows, especially the West Baton Rouge Garden and Civic Club, and newspaper clippings about the couple's work. Additional slides illustrate agriculture and transportation in Louisiana, Mardi Gras, Louisiana towns, Natchez plantation homes and costumes, and African-American baptisms. Additionally, there is material related to the Civil War Centennial in Louisiana. This consists of correspondence, public relations strategy, and printed booklets and brochures. They include The Civil War in Louisiana, a Chronology, by T. Harry Williams and A. Oris Hebert, Jr. (1965), Louisiana Commemorates the Civil War, by T. Harry Williams (n.d.), Louisiana in the Civil War-a Bibliography (n.d.), and General Henry Watkins Allen, Confederate Governor of Louisiana, 1861-1865 (n.d.)

Correspondence reflects Theodore and Lou Bird Landry’s day-to-day activities of their work in landscape architecture. Correspondence with clients and prospective clients details professional services available, landscape designs, costs, and progress on projects. Client letters express satisfaction and appreciation for completed projects. Theodore Landry corresponded with colleagues throughout the country sharing ideas on landscape designs and with university faculty, including faculty at Louisiana State University and Tulane University, New Orleans, La. Correspondence reflects participation in local and national organizations, with letters relating publications, speaking engagements and presentations. They also relate to the business activities of the organizations. Other

correspondence shows Landry’s involvement with the Port Allen planning commission, municipal beautification programs within the state, and Theodore’s contribution to local industrial landscape design. He was also involved in the improvement of industrial waste disposal systems. Additionally, letters document Theodore and Lou Bird’s participation in the preservation of historical sights and church landscape projects. Theodore was also in communication with members of the film industry, political figures, and members of the clergy, including Bishop Robert E. Tracey. Letters from Governor John J. McKeithen’s office invite Landry to discuss possible landscape development around the Pentagon Buildings. Letters from novelist, Harnett Kane (1963) requests the use of Landry’s photographic slides depicting various landmarks; Kane also comments on the assassination of John F. Kennedy (Nov. 1963). Personal correspondence concerns a European trip, and landscape projects in England and Guatemala, and friends describe to the sights of Costa Rica and Guatemala. Correspondence in French relates chiefly to personal and social matters and tells of trips to New York, Washington D. C., France, Normandy and Belgium. Some letters, however, relate to Esso Standard Oil Co.
