    Tuesday, April 29

    10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Special Presentation at 2 p.m.

    The Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library has landscape designed by the renowned Washington D.C. firm Oehme van Sweden. The landscape architect was Eric Groft, a 1985 U.Va. graduate.

    On view in the Main Gallery is “Collecting American Histories: The Tracy W. McGregor Library at 75,” featuring highlights from the world-renowned library of rare Americana collected by Detroit philanthropist Tracy W. McGregor (1869-1936) and given to the University of Virginia Library in 1938. Over the past 75 years the original 5,000-volume collection has quadrupled in size thanks to generous support from the McGregor Fund. Among the items on view are a 1495 illustrated Columbus Letter, a 1616 manuscript description of Virginia by John Rolfe, the very rare first printing of the 1777 Articles of Confederation, Thomas Jefferson’s annotated copy of his "Notes on the State of Virginia" (1787), and a portion of Mark Catesby’s original manuscript for "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands."

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION: 2 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.

    Christopher D. Patzke, PLA, will discuss "Expanding Jefferson's Vision: Warren Manning's 1913 Master Plan for the University of Virginia." In 1907, the University hired the Boston-based landscape architect, Warren Manning, to re-envision the landscape of the University and devise a master plan for growth and refurbishment following the fire that destroyed the Rotunda in 1895. Formerly an associate at Frederick Law Olmsted’s renowned landscape architecture firm, Manning redesigned the University’s circulation system, proposed new quadrangles and designed new plantings for the grounds. While some of his vision was achieved, much of it was not. His plan would, however, influence how the University approached change for many decades after it was produced.

    Mr. Patzke currently works at the architectural and interior design firm, Zen Associates, Inc. He has a strong interest in the maintenance and restoration of historic landscapes. He is working on a two-volume book documenting the life and work of Warren Manning, due to be published in 2014.

    University of Virginia Landscape Architect, Mary Hughes, FALSA, will follow-up with a brief presentation on the rejuvenation of the one remaining Warren Manning garden here on Grounds, Pavilion X. Following her remarks, Ms. Hughes will offer a short tour of the Pavilion X garden.

    A selection of items from UVA’s Special Collections related to Warren Manning’s work will be displayed 30 minutes before and after the 2:00 P.M. presentation.

McGregor (1869-1936) and given to the University of Virginia Library in 1938. Over the past 75 years the original 5,000-volume collection has quadrupled in size thanks to generous support from the McGregor Fund. Among the items on view are a 1495 illustrated Columbus Letter, a 1616 manuscript description of Virginia by John Rolfe, the very rare first printing of the 1777 Articles of Confederation, Thomas Jefferson’s annotated copy of his "Notes on the State of Virginia" (1787), and a portion of Mark Catesby’s original manuscript for "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands."

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION: 2 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.

    Christopher D. Patzke, PLA, will discuss "Expanding Jefferson's Vision: Warren Manning's 1913 Master Plan for the University of Virginia." In 1907, the University hired the Boston-based landscape architect, Warren Manning, to re-envision the landscape of the University and devise a master plan for growth and refurbishment following the fire that destroyed the Rotunda in 1895. Formerly an associate at Frederick Law Olmsted’s renowned landscape architecture firm, Manning redesigned the University’s circulation system, proposed new quadrangles and designed new plantings for the grounds. While some of his vision was achieved, much of it was not. His plan would, however, influence how the University approached change for many decades after it was produced.

    Mr. Patzke currently works at the architectural and interior design firm, Zen Associates, Inc. He has a strong interest in the maintenance and restoration of historic landscapes. He is working on a two-volume book documenting the life and work of Warren Manning, due to be published in 2014.

    University of Virginia Landscape Architect, Mary Hughes, FALSA, will follow-up with a brief presentation on the rejuvenation of the one remaining Warren Manning garden here on Grounds, Pavilion X. Following her remarks, Ms. Hughes will offer a short tour of the Pavilion X garden.

    A selection of items from UVA’s Special Collections related to Warren Manning’s work will be displayed 30 minutes before and after the 2:00 P.M. presentation.
