The French influence on U.S. architecture in the American Republic's formative years, as Kennedy demonstrates, went far beyond the modeling of Williamsburg, Va., on Versailles or the design of Washington, D.C., by Pierre-Charles L'Enfant.
Enlivened by more than 150 illustrations, this absorbing, pleasantly rambling chronicle tells dozens of stories--of emigre French architects, adventurers, schemers and princes; of slave rebellions, wars, investment schemes, secret diplomacy; and of the American towns, forts, plantations, university campuses, houses and public buildings that bore a French stamp as a result of this cross-cultural interchange.
Director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History and author of Architecture, Men, Women, and Money in America (LJ 3/1/86), Kennedy here traces entertainingly the convoluted relations between the two countries until the onset of the Victorian era, when French influence waned.

 Yosemite History: Frederick Law Olmsted, Landscape Architect
Olmsted read the Report to his fellow Commissioners at a meeting in the Yosemite Valley on August 9, 1865; ultimately intended for presentation to the state legislature, it met with indifference or hostility from other members of the Commission, and was quietly suppressed.
Olmsted himself left California for good at the end of 1865; he had arrived there just a little more than two years before to assume responsibilities as Superintendent for the Mariposa Mining Estate.
Only in the twentieth century has his Preliminary Report come to be widely recognized as one of the most profound and original philosophical statements to emerge from the American conservation movement.
