02dec7:00 pm8:30 pmIHS Annual Meeting and Presentation by Author Justin Martin on Frederick Law Olmsted

Event Details

Frederick Law Olmsted is often best remembered for his landscape architecture, from New York’s Central Park to Boston’s Emerald Necklace to Stanford University’s campus.  “An artist, he paints with lakes and wooded slopes; with lawns and banks and forest-covered hills; with mountain sides and ocean views.”  But Olmsted was so much more.  He was also an influential journalist, early voice for the environment, and abolitionist credited with helping dissuade England from joining the South in the Civil War.  Drawing from his biography of Olmsted, “Genius in Place”, author Justin Martin tells this extraordinary story of how Frederick Law Olmsted helped shape modern America.
