Charles E. Beveridge Research Fellowship
Deadline - Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site (Olmsted NHS) preserves the home, designed landscape, office, and design records of America’s foremost landscape architect and his firm. It was here that Frederick Law Olmsted established the nation’s first full-scale office for the practice of landscape architecture in 1883. Today, an estimated 1,000,000 original landscape design records are housed within the office, as well as an adjunct facility at Springfield Armory National Historic Site. These records document over 6,000 projects proposed or undertaken by the Olmsted firm between 1860 and 1980, which continue to enhance our understanding of local, regional, national, and international trends in landscape design and city planning. To encourage the use of the Olmsted Archives and collections at the Olmsted NHS, and foster the continued development of Olmsted scholars in the United States, the Friends of Fairsted (Friends) has established an annual research fellowship. One fellowship will be awarded in 2014. This fellowship honors Charles E. Beveridge, the eminent scholar, editor of the Papers of Frederick Law Olmsted, and longtime friend of the Olmsted NHS.
