Frederick Law Olmsted (1822 –1903) was an American public administrator and landscape designer. Olmsted was famous for co-designing many well-known urban parks with his senior partner Calvert Vaux, including Central Park and Prospect Park in New York City. This is a selective edition of the papers of the pioneering 19th-century American landscape architect and city planner, author of classic accounts of the antebellum South, and astute observer of American life. The volumes document Olmsted’s activities during the Civil War, on the California frontier, during the New York and Boston years, and as landscape architect to the nation.
