Description

In 1939 the Print Club of Cleveland established a memorial collection for Donald Gray, president of the Club 1933–34. Since Mr. Gray was a landscape architect and author of the “Daily Garden” column for The Cleveland Press, a now defunct newspaper, the choice of 15 prints and one drawing of flower and fruit subjects was an appropriate tribute. These were the first botanical prints to enter the collection, which has grown to a large representation of more than 100 prints and related drawings.
