Warren H. Manning, Landscape Architect and Environmental Planner

The Library of American Landscape History (LALH) announces the long-awaited publication of Warren H. Manning, Landscape Architect and Environmental PlannerThe volume is edited by Robin Karson, Jane Roy Brown, and Sarah Allaback, with photographs by Carol Betsch. 

Warren H. Manning’s (1860–1938) national practice comprised more than sixteen hundred landscape design and planning projects throughout North America—from small home grounds to estates, cemeteries, college campuses, parks and park systems, and new industrial towns. Contributors to the Warren H. Manning Research Project have worked for more than a decade to assess current conditions of his built projects and to compile a richly illustrated compendium of essays that illustrate the range, scope, and significance of Manning’s notable career.
