Abstract:

This collection contains records assembled by the Arboretum staff to document the relationship between Charles Sprague Sargent, the Arboretum's first director, and Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of landscape architecture, and their work on the original design and arrangement of the Arboretum. Included are correspondence, biographical material, newclippings, and documents relating to the Arboretum's design and to some of Olmsted's other work. Of special value are photographs of the road studies, planting plans, and plant distribution studies dating from 1878 through 1896. The original documents were loaned to the Arboretum for duplication by Artemas P. Richardson, Olmsted Associates, Inc. in 1979, prior to the National Park Service's acquisition of "Fairsted," Olmsted's home and office in 1980, and the subsequent creation of the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.
