Description
The Baumgartner papers contain rolls of landscape drawings, boxes of client files, one large landscape plan mounted on foamcore, and a small box that holds job cards for every client/project.
Background
Sydney Baumgartner practiced landscape design in the Santa Barbara region from the 1960s through the 1990s. Not formally trained as a landscape architect, she saw herself as a follower of Lockwood de Forest, Jr., an influential landscape architect in the Santa Barbara area. Though she never met Lockwood de Forest, Baumbartner apprenticed with Elizabeth de Forest in the 1960s. Elizabeth continued her husband's landscape practice after his death in 1949 and transmitted his ideas about natural landscapes and the use of native plants.
