Papers arranged in folders by subject; $3 photographic prints arranged by place and year except where undated.
Correspondence, pamphlets, photographic prints and clippings document Charles Deering's interest in plant introduction, research and cultivation at his two Dade County estates.

Industrialist Charles Deering (International Harvesters) built his first home in Miami in 1910, when he was not quite 60. This was Buena Vista, located in what is now Bay Point. By 1914 he was buying land in south Dade County and in 1920 was owner of 380 acres of bayfront in Cutler, where he added a three story stone house to existing buildings. Among these was the old Richmond Inn which had been in business before the turn of the century. After his death in 1927 his widow continued living at the Cutler estate until her death in 1943. In 1985 the Nature Conservancy purchased it as a nature preserve and historic site. It is now managed by Dade County Parks.

Deering, Charles, 1852-1927, collector.
Buena Vista estate ; Japanese life and customs : scrapbooks, 1900-1909?
2 v.
Folder of preconstruction sketches for the Deering estate on the bay north of Miami, and a turn of the century photograph album on Japan. Buena Vista material includes two floor plans headed: Preliminary studies of house for Mr. Charles Deering, Miami, Fla.; a photographic print of a building model; and eight watercolor sketches of different rooms, elevations, etc., signed by the architect Clinton McKenzie of New York City. The Japanese album consists of a series of hand colored photographic prints showing traditional Japanese artisans, farmers and street scenes. They are numbered in Japanese and appear to have been commercially produced.
Charles Deering's first Miami residence, Buena Vista, was built in 1910 in what is now Bay Point. The Japanese album is not dated, but Deering was an escort for Ulysses S. Grant on an Asian tour in the 1880s and may have made other visits to Japan. The content of the prints, many of which are faded, would be compatible with a span of years around the turn of the century.
