Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) was a founder of American landscape architecture and one of America’s most prolific park designers. He began his career in landscape architecture in 1857 when he was commissioned (with partner Calvert Vaux) to design New York’s Central Park. Other projects include some of the nation’s most beloved landscapes, including the U.S. Capitol grounds, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., the Stanford University campus, and the grounds of the Chicago World’s Fair. Designed by Ethel Kessler, the stamp’s montage includes a portrait of Olmsted, a photograph of Central Park, and photographs of two architectural landscape plans (Prospect Park, Brooklyn, N.Y., and Buffalo Park System, Buffalo, N.Y.).
