This gallery showcases some of the images that will be found in an upcoming book by Buffalo State College's SUNY Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Francis R. Kowsky.
The book, entitled, "The Best Planned City in the World: Olmsted, Vaux, and the Buffalo Park System" will be published by the Library of American Landscape History in 2013.
Dr. Kowsky's original research was donated to the SUNY Buffalo State, Archives & Special Collections. The department also holds The Frederick Law Olmsted Collection (microfilm). Please contact an archivist for additional assistance.
