2021 CHARLES E. BEVERIDGE FELLOWSHIP RECIPIENT
Jonathan Kuhr, Malden, MA
Building Wilderness: Lessons from Olmsted’s Forest Landscapes. Jonathan will be studying the design, construction, and reception of the Olmsted office’s densely planted, urban woodlands, particularly the role such landscapes might play in creating spaces for people and programs otherwise marginalized by the prevailing forms of open space found in contemporary cities.
2021 CHARLES E. BEVERIDGE RESEARCH GRANT RECIPIENT
Emily Vance, Charleston, WV
Olmsted Brothers and West Virginia University: A Contextualized Look at Woodburn Circle. Emily will be researching one of the Olmsted Brothers’ lesser-known projects: a proposed campus plan for West Virginia University in Morgantown (1898–1901). Her project seeks to confirm whether the Olmsted plans were acted upon and to amend the current National Register nomination of Woodburn Circle, WVU’s beloved quadrangle, to provide thorough landscape descriptions and context regarding the Olmsted Brothers’ role in its design.
