Miller covers mastermind behind college landscape
An article by Emeritus College Archivist Arthur Miller was published in a new book on Warren H. Manning, a Lake Forest College landscape architect and campus planner.
Miller’s article “Warren Manning’s Picturesque Vision for Lake Forest College” on Manning’s plan for the campus first appeared in VIEW, the annual periodical of the Library for American Landscape History, and has now been republished in a new volume on the landscape architect entitled Warren H. Manning: Landscape Architect and Environmental Planner.
It was Manning’s idea to create the Middle Campus ring road and to have native prairie on campus.
“The book as a whole gives lots of good information about this landscape architect that helps explain our natural campus, the early supporters of this environment, and the origins of ideas we see on campus now and in recent years, such as restored landscape and ravine edges,” said Miller.
