7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Gateway Center
George Curry, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus at SUNY-ESF, will speak on research conducted by ESF’s Department of Landscape Architecture’s Center for Cultural Landscape Preservation at the Roosevelt Estate in Hyde Park, N.Y. A reception will follow the lecture, and parking will be available on campus (download permit at http://www.esf.edu/efb/travislecture/).
Professor Curry’s talk will focus on Hyde Park landscape evolution beginning in 1887 when James Roosevelt, FDR’s father, purchased 110 acres. The pivotal role of ESF in developing the Hyde Park landscape will be emphasized.
Professor Curry has been instrumental in revitalizing a number of neighborhoods, including Syracuse's Armory Square. In 2007 he was named Landscape Architecture Educator of the Year by DesignIntelligence magazine. In 2008 he earned the Levi L. Smith Civic Education Award, along with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching New York Professor the Year award. Professor Curry became a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1995.
This event is made possible by the generous support of Dale L. Travis ’59. Mr. Travis envisioned the lecture series as a way to inform the general public about various research projects at ESF.
