Corliss Engle served on the board of trustees for both the Massachusetts Horticulture Society and the New England Wild Flower Society. Her commitment to the field of horticulture led her to receive a Garden Club of America Achievement Medal and have the Begonia Society name the Begonia “Corliss Engle” in her honor.
The Corliss Knapp Engle Collection documents scores of private gardens throughout the United States, including her own, captured in over 400 35mm slides, which she maintained for over thirty years in Brookline, Massachusetts. The addition of these slides nicely complements Engle’s garden photography already included in the Garden Club of America Collection.
