Frederick Law Olmsted1

b. 1822, d. 1903
     Major American landscape architect, born in Hartford, Connecticut, and educated at Yale University. He traveled throughout Europe and the southern U.S., studying landscape gardening and agricultural methods. In 1857 he was appointed superintendent of Central Park in New York City, the first great metropolitan park in the U.S. In collaboration with the American architect Calvert Vaux he drew new plans for the park, which had a pervasive influence on park design throughout the United States and Canada. Subsequently, he planned a large number of city parks, including Morningside, Prospect, and Riverside parks, New York City; Jackson and Washington parks, Chicago; and the grounds of the Capitol, Washington, D.C. He was the first commissioner of Yosemite National Park, California. Olmsted was one of the first landscape architects in America to preserve the natural features of the terrain and to add naturalistic elements when needed. His experiences are recounted in Forty Years of Landscape Architecture: Central Park (1928), edited by F. L. Olmsted, Jr., and Theodora Kimball.
