Bill Mann, FASLA, Professor Emeritus at UGA, taught landscape architecture in the College of the Environment and Design for 38 years. He also taught at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia, and Michigan State University. He has been a design critic and lecturer at many universities and conferences in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia. Bill authored Landscape Architecture: An Illustrated History, as well as Space and Time in Landscape Architectural History.
Bill is now researching the historic (1831-1856) “Old UGA Botanic Garden” that once lay along the banks of the Tanyard Creek in Athens. Its funding was terminated in 1856 and its plants and the 8-acre site were sold off to raise money to cast the iconic Arch and the iron fence around North Campus.
