Not certain, but most likely Rev. Anthony J. Eiardi, S.J., based on the fact that he sent these photographs in 1956 in his letters to Arthur Shurcliff
The Japanese Garden at Bellarmine Hall was designed by Arthur A. Shurtleff for the Walter B. Lashar family. The Lashars built their home Hearthstone Hall in 1926, and hired Shurtleff to design this garden as well as the formal gardens surrounding the house.
Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (1865 - 1957) was a noted American landscape architect. He was born with the family name Shurtleff but changed it to Shurcliff in 1930 to conform to an older English spelling. He designed the Japanese Garden with three bridges, water flowing from pool to pool on stone runways, stone paths, Japanese lanterns and a replica of Mount Fujiyama which was able to let off smoke through a chimney in the peak. Image date is approximate.
