2:00 PM- 3:00 PM

In 1929, Elizabeth Lord & Edith Schryver, two young women from opposite sides of the United States, traveled to Salem, OR, and formed the first landscape architecture firm founded by women in the Pacific Northwest. Their complementary talents and strong social network assured their success during the economic development of the region. They were consummate professionals who designed for a series of private clients and public institutions, as well as volunteering their time to enhance and secure the public landscapes of Oregon.

The Northwest Gardens of Lord & Schryver, by Valencia Libby, was published in November 2021 by Oregon State University Press, in cooperation with the Lord & Schryver Conservancy. Join us for this webinar, as the author discusses her new book.
