Scope and Contents

Newspaper clipping from the New York Times published October 25, 1953 with two articles. One titled, "A Garden of Fragrance for Those Who Cannot See" and "Tree of Distinction, the Merits of Sassafras Refute 'Weed' Charges." Mildred Bliss may have been interested in both articles, but more likely her interest in the clipping was for the article about a fragrant garden for the blind in the City of Brighton on the south coast of England.
