captured FDR's vision of Dutch colonial architecture so perfectly that he
went on to collaborate with President Roosevelt on other ventures. His next
commission came from the President's mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt. The
fieldstone walls for that project, the James Roosevelt Memorial Library in
Hyde Park, were included at the suggestion of President Roosevelt. Toombs
would later go on to design structures for FDR with the similar fieldstone
walls: the Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia; the Hyde Park
retreat Top Cottage; and the initial designs for the Presidential Library.
