CHARLES E. BEVERIDGE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The Charles E. Beveridge Research Fellowship honors the eminent scholar, Series Editor of The Papers of Frederick Law Olmsted, and devoted friend of Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site (Olmsted NHS) and its archives and collections. The Fellowship is intended to encourage the use of these archives and foster the continued development of Olmsted scholarship. Many of the Olmsted firm’s plans, drawings and photographs can be viewed online on the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site Flickr page. The Olmsted Research Guide Online is a searchable database list of plans, drawings, and photographs found at Olmsted NHS as well as correspondence and reports held at the Library of Congress. Additional information on the Archives and collections at Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site can be found at the Olmsted NHS website.

Designs for ‘People Who Do Not Readily Intermingle:’ Deed Restrictions in the Olmsteds’ Residential Subdivisions. This study examines restrictive covenants in the Olmsted firm’s suburban subdivisions, implemented by Olmsted Sr. and then used with more explicit racial implications by Olmsted Jr. These deed restrictions regulated building requirements but also excluded specific racial, economic, and/or religious communities from these subdivisions. The extent to which these restrictions were made explicit, and precisely what they entailed, will be illuminated by archival research at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.
