"The first comprehensive study of Phillips, by someone who knew him. . . . A significant, in-depth, and highly entertaining biography of [the man who] was one of the first to develop landscaping with tropical and subtropical plants [and who]. . . left us with one great masterpiece--the Fairchild Tropical Garden."--R. Brinsley Burbidge, director, Fairchild Tropical Garden, Miami

"This biography provides a long-needed history of the early days of tropical landscape architecture. . . . Mrs. Jackson’s investigation and research are extraordinary. "--Jonathan G. Seymour, landscape architect

William Lyman Phillips (1885-1966) played a seminal role in the landscaping of Florida and in the history of landscape architecture, designing the world-famous Fairchild Tropical Garden in Miami (begun in 1938) as well as hundreds of other sites, four of them on the National Register. This biography, written by a woman who knew Phillips and who shared his northeastern upbringing, education, taste, and childlike apprehension of the exotic, brings to life the story of the quiet, self-effacing man whose love of Florida’s tropical and subtropical botany has had such a profound influence on the way Florida looks today.Jackson’s biography of Phillips is also the story of a fascinating life.  A student of Frederick Law Olmsted at Harvard in landscape architecture and engineering, Phillips later became a representative of the Olmsted firm.  He spent the next 45 years pioneering the use of palms and tropical plants, which had been largely ignored or treated with contempt.  His Olmsted commissions took him to places as far-flung as Panama, Camp Jackson in South Carolina, and France. In 1924 he married and moved to Florida. From that point forward, Phillips’s story coincides with that of Florida in its boom years, from the 1930s through the 1960s.As project superintendent of the first wave of Florida’s Civilian Conservation Corps and later as consultant to the national and county park services, Phillips built all of south Florida’s public parks as well as a large number of its private ones and designed dozens of public housing sites, hospitals, cemeteries, airports, roads, highways, private gardens, and college campuses.  And he completed his masterpiece, the Fairchild Tropical Garden. Including 170 photographs, extensive plant lists, and many of Phillips’s most famous plans, Jackson’s biography is an intimate look at the pioneering vision of the man largely responsible for popularizing Florida’s exotic landscape.Faith Jackson, educator, writer, former book editor of the <i>Miami Herald</i>, avid master gardener, and sometime garden designer, had the good fortune to learn from William Lyman Phillips while he designed her south Florida garden. Her reviews and articles have appeared in <i>American Horticulturist</i> and <i>Mid-Atlantic Monthly,</i> among others.  She lives in Washington, D.C.

Marvellous exploration of nature, respect for horticultural design, and unusually perceptive about the importance of gardens in populated areas.

This book is very well written, with a lot of insight into the career of a design professional. Good photos illustrating many different facets of the man's life and work. It was fascinating see how this man's career intertwined with his time in the well-known Olmstead office. A great read.

Finally, thirty four years after the passing of one of the most important figures in the development of landscape architecture. A fine book detailing the life of this great man has surfaced. The book is titled "pioneer of tropical landscape architecture" by faith reyher jackson, published by the university press of florida. The book is a masterpiece in its detailed treatment of not only the man but the deep imprint that he left on the florida scene in the 20th century. William lyman phillips was a genius but his overwhelming modesty denied him his rightful place amongst the great landscape architects of his era. Jackson has skillfully and accurately covered all of the remarkable imprints that phillips has left on the florida and panama canal zone scene. As stated in the book overleaf, phillips was the project superintendent of the first wave of florida's civilian conservation corps and later the consultant to the national and county park service. Phillips built all of south florida i s public parks as well as large numbers of private ones. He designed dozens of public housing sites, hospitals, cemeteries, airports, roads, highways, private gardens and college campuses. His masterpiece was fairchild tropical garden. I strongly recommend this book to all those readers who have an interest in the life and achievements of unsung heroes.
