Biographical Note

The Arkansas Chapter of American Society of Landscape Architects was established in 1983 as the numbers of landscape designers in the state increased. From 1957 to 1977 Arkansas existed as a Section of the Southwest Chapter of the ASLA which also included Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Mississippi. In 1977-1983 it became a section of the Louisiana/Arkansas Chapter. In the 1970s the profession of landscape architecture made significant strides in Arkansas. In 1976, Title Act_A.C.A.17-36 established a Board to develop the criteria for licensure in the state.. The University of Arkansas had initiated a Landscape Architecture degree program in the School of Architecture in 1975. 1980 the program gained its first three graduates. By 1985 members of the profession and the University faculty had worked to acquire incorporation for the Arkansas Chapter of American Society of Landscape Architects.
