Elizabeth Rogers Portrait_Legacy AwardLALH honors Betsy Barlow Rogers, our inaugural Legacy Hero Award recipient, for contributions to cultural landscape studies and preservation practice that have influenced scholarship internationally and catalyzed the restoration of hundreds of iconic landscapes worldwide. As an author, park administrator, founder and president of the Foundation for Landscape Studies, and longtime LALH board member, Betsy has served as a role model for a generation of landscape scholars and historians throughout the world, including many writing on American subjects, the focus of the LALH program. Collectively, we owe a great debt of gratitude to Betsy Rogers—for her tireless work in the field and for the preservation of irreplaceable landscapes, in Central Park and beyond.
