Abstract

It is generally known that the first generation of American landscape architects such as Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) was largely influenced by English landscape gardening. It is not so generally known that the second generation of the country's landscape architects -- men such as Charles Eliot, Samuel Parsons and Henry Vincent Hubbard -- was greatly influenced by the work of a German prince, Hermann von Pückler-Muskau, on his own estate of Muskau situated in a remote corner of Germany on the present border with Poland.
