Frederick Law Olmsted: Subject File

15 linear feet

For each individual volume, the editor and project staff would research a variety of individuals and topics.  Some of this information would inform the annotations in the published edition.  This series contains the materials collected as part of this research including articles, correspondence, maps, notes, and park reports.  This series is divided into three subseries [estates and communities, FLO parks, park reports, and subjects] and arranged alphabetically by subject and/or document type.
