    New Digital Collection: Olmsted Associates Records

    LOC Manuscript Division Scout

      A digital collection has been added to the Library of Congress website. The online presentation of the Olmsted Associates Records (scanned from 532 reels of microfilm) reproduce the two largest series in the collection, the Letterbooks, 1884-1899, and Job Files, 1863-1971, which document the work of the Brookline, Massachusetts, landscape architectural firm and its widespread projects and commissions undertaken for private and public clients in the United States and Canada.  They include materials from the last major projects in the career of Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903), but mostly focus on the next generation and a new century, as Olmsted's two sons entered the landscape architecture profession under their father's tutelage, and then carried on the management and highly successful expansion of the Olmsted Brothers firm in the first half of the twentieth century. https://www.loc.gov/collections/olmsted-associates-records/about-this-collection/
