In Hare & Hare: Landscape Architects and City Planners, Carol Grove and Cydney Millstein document the extraordinary achievements of this little-known firm and weave them into a narrative that spans from the birth of the late nineteenth-century “modern cemetery movement” to midcentury modernism. Through the figures of Sidney, a “homespun” amateur geologist who built a rustic family retreat called Harecliff, and his son Herbert, an urbane Harvard-trained landscape architect who traveled Europe and lived in a modern apartment building, Grove and Millstein chronicle the growth of the field from its amorphous Victorian beginnings to its coalescence as a profession during the first half of the twentieth century. Hare & Hare provides a unique and valuable parallel to studies of prominent East and West Coast landscape architecture firms―one that expands the reader’s understanding of the history of American landscape architecture practice.
Jim Erickson of the KC Area Development Council will join Carol & Cydney for a panel discussion on how some of these developments impacted the KC region economically.
