Wooden garden gate, Dumbarton Oaks Gardens, Washington, D.C., 1938, from the Arthur Peck Photograph Collection, via Oregon State University (OSU) Special Collections and Archives Commons on flickr.
Arthur Peck was a Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Oregon Agricultural College from 1908 to 1948. During his long career, he created a teaching library of 24 boxes of glass lantern slides — now in OSU’s archives.
Does anyone know if this gate still exists in the Gardens?

Cindy, It’s been a few years since I visited Dumbarton Oaks so I can’t be certain. But I don’t remember the gates and I think I would.
I don’t remember it either, and I can’t find it in any of the garden pictures on the D.O.’s website. Being wood, it may have begun to break down in the 40’s and was never copied.
