A few highlights:

  • In this issue of VIEW, we feature our new Designing the American Park series, to be ushered in next spring The Best Planned City in the World by Francis R. Kowsky. Series editor Ethan Carr, a landscape architect and historian who also serves on the LALH Board of Directors, links the seminal design with a range of other park types—including historical parks such as Colonial Williamsburg, designed by Arthur A. Shurcliff, the subject of a forthcoming book by Elizabeth Hope Cushing, and segregated state parks in the South, the topic of a forthcoming book by William O’Brien.
  • Michael Van Valkenburgh, one of North America’s most acclaimed landscape architects, contributes an article about his experiences creating parks throughout the United States.
  • Historian, author, and preeminent preservationist Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, this year’s Henry Hope Reed Award laureate, reflects on changes in urban parks since the 1980s, when she led the movement to restore Central Park.
  • Landscape architect Kelly Comras writes on Ruth Shellhorn’s work at Disneyland.
  • Historian Marjorie White discusses Warren Manning’s design for Mountain Brook Estates in Birmingham, Alabama.
  • Historical landscape architect James O’Day reports on the new Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy .
  • Artist and historian Anita Bracalente traces the history of the parklike campus of the University of Indiana in Bloomington.
  • LALH education director Jane Roy Brown contributes an article on the vast and somber Flight 93 Memorial and National Park, in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
