By Design: Frederick Law Olmsted crowdsourcing transcription campaign challenge

April 2022 marks the bicentennial of Frederick Law Olmsted’s birth. Many of the parks, estates, residential communities, campuses, grounds of buildings, and gathering places he, his associates, and his successors designed remain in use today. Find out more about landscape architecture, urban planning, and the cultural history of design for public and private greenspaces by transcribing and reviewing a new set of Olmsted documents each week in April!

In the second week of the Olmsted challenge (April 11-15), we’re focusing on select materials from the Frederick Law Olmsted Papers subject file. Check the campaign page this week for the identified items!
