The Leland Scott Collection consists of nearly 500 images of the University of Maryland's Department of Horticulture, horticulture, and horticultural subjects, primarily relating to Maryland. The collection also includes a number of photographs which capture early history of the city of College Park. B.W. Anspon, an associate professor of floriculture and landscape gardening in the Department of Horticulture from 1913 to 1918, was the primary photographer. A smaller number of photographs are attributed to E. P. Walls, who was also a member of the faculty of the Horticulture Department.
