Course Detail: OSH-OLMSTED - Olmsted's America: Seeing the Future

Before he became the nation's first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted was a failed sailor, farmer, writer, and gold miner. His writings influenced international opinion on slavery, and his vision created a system of parks which would remain relevant for hundreds of years. This course will focus on Olmsted's life and world, a time of civil war, rapid nation-building, and the beginning of the American park system.
