List of landscape architects

A landscape architect is someone who practices landscape architecture. Regulations of the profession vary by state; the terminology has evolved to include those once known as landscape gardeners, landscape designers, surveyors, or civil engineers. In particular, this includes people from the 19th century who'd practiced before the term "landscape architect" was coined. Landscape architecture was differentiated as a profession in the United States earlier than other parts of the world, but this ambiguity has persisted to the present day. In much of Europe, for example, landscape architecture is not a distinct profession. Though their influence on landscape architecture may be great, this list precludes gardeners, writers, ecologists and others who did not practice landscape design at a site scale and were not trained as a historical'landscape gardener' or contemporary'landscape architect.'

Adriaan van Royen

Adriaan van Royen was a Dutch botanist. He is associated with Carl Linnaeus. Born in Leiden, Van Royen trained at the University of Leiden and graduated as a medical doctor in 1728 for his thesis Dissertatio botanico-medica de anatome et œconomia plantarum, he was appointed professor of botany at the university from 1732–1755 and professor of medicine. He is best known for his work on flora of Southeast Asia, he was a colleague of George Clifford III, a wealthy Dutch merchant and governor of the Dutch East India Company living in Haarlem, a noted source of new introductions from the East Indies and the Cape. Adriaan van Royen formed a close relationship with Linnaeus, who had visited the Leiden Botanic Garden during a stay in Leiden between 1737 and 1738, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1728. He died in Leiden in 1779; the genus Royena L. in the Ebenaceae, Melastoma royenii Blume. Sutton, D. A. are named after him

Rochester Tigers

The Rochester Tigers were a professional American football team that competed in the second American Football League in 1936 and 1937. Owned by Mike Palm and Harry Newman, the Tigers were awarded to Rochester as a charter member of the AFL, but were shifted to Brooklyn two weeks afterward despite the lack of availability of a home stadium in its new home town moved back to Rochester midway through the 1936 season; the Brooklyn Tigers delayed their start of the 1936 season as the team started as a traveling team, with the Tigers playing their first game on October 11. As the two teams played to a 3-3 tie, another AFL team played its only game as the Rochester Braves at Red Wing Stadium before going out of business. Two weeks the Tigers moved back to Rochester and renamed themselves the Rochester Tigers. Playing in Red Wing Stadium, the Tigers lost the last two games of the season, wrapping up a season of futility with no wins, six losses, one tie, yet the team managed to survive the turbulent season to continue into 1937 with plans on staying full-time in Rochester.

The 1937 AFL season presented several changes, most notably a reconfiguration as the Cleveland Rams departed for the National Football League while the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Bulldogs joined the league. While the Rochester Braves were a distant memory, the Rochester Tigers kept their owners and coach from the 1936 season, but like fellow AFL members Pittsburgh Americans, the Tigers were not in good financial shape; as Los Angeles marched through its AFL schedule on its way to the first undefeated-untied season in major professional American football history, the other five AFL members were financially devastated. Pittsburgh, averaging only about 2000 fans in attendance, folded after only three games in 1937. After the last game of the season, the AFL folded. * 0-2 as Rochester Tigers in 1936

Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine

Sir Louis-Hippolyte Ménard dit La Fontaine, 1st Baronet, KCMG was a Canadian politician who served as the first Premier of the United Province of Canada and the first head of a responsible government in Canada. He was born in Boucherville, Lower Canada in 1807. A jurist and statesman, La Fontaine was first elected to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada in 1830, he was member of the Parti canadien. After the severe consequences of the Rebellions of 1837 against the British authorities, he advocated political reforms within the new Union regime of 1841. Under this Union of the two Canadas he worked with Robert Baldwin in the formation of a party of Upper and Lower Canadian liberal reformers, he and Baldwin formed a government in 1842 but resigned in 1843. In 1848 he was asked by the Governor-General, Lord Elgin, to form the first administration under the new policy of responsible government; the La Fontaine-Baldwin government, formed on March 11, battled for the restoration of the official status of the French language, abolished with the Union Act, the principles of responsible government and the double-majority in the voting of bills.

While Baldwin was reforming Canada West, La Fontaine passed bills to abolish the tenure seigneuriale and grant amnesty to the leaders of the rebellions in Lower Canada, exiled. The bill passed, but it was not accepted by the loyalists of Canada East who protested violently and burned down the Parliament in Montreal. La Fontaine retired to private life in 1851 but was appointed Chief Justice of Canada East in 1853. In 1854 he was created a baronet by Queen Victoria and a knight commander in the pontifical Order of St. Sylvester by Pope Pius IX in 1855, his last name is mistakingly written in one word, the correct spelling being "La Fontaine", as in "Jean de La Fontaine", the writer. During the 1840s, Willson continued his association with the Reform Party, it was the Children of Peace who ensured the election of Montreal lawyer Louis La Fontaine as their representative in Upper Canada. Willson argued that this was an opportunity, as he said, "to show our impartial respect to the Canadian people of the Lower province."

Here, Willson is expressing a clear Canadian identity that overcame differences in the language and religion. It was a vision of Canadian citizenship, successful, as La Fontaine was elected in the 4th Riding of York. Subsequently, they elected Baldwin in their riding; the band of the Children of Peace was a familiar sight at Baldwin's campaign rallies. In 1844, they held a campaign rally for Baldwin concurrently with the illumination of the Temple. Over 3000 people attended, an event that helped end the reign of Orange Order electoral violence. In Canada East and Orange Order violence were used to prevent the election of Louis-Hippolyte LaFontaine, leader of the Canadien reformers in Terrebonne, outside Montreal. In order to ensure La Fontaine a seat, Baldwin proposed to David Willson, leader of the Children of Peace, that they nominate La Fontaine for the seat in 4th York. Baldwin insisted that Sydenham include La Fontaine in the reformed Executive Council, or he would resign as Solicitor General.

Their alliance allowed La Fontaine to have a seat in the assembly in 1841 and for Baldwin to win the by-election in 1843. On 3 September 1841, the Children of Peace held a campaign rally for Baldwin and La Fontaine in their Temple, where they rejoiced "to say that we have it in our power to show our impartial respect to the Canadian people of the Lower Province." Despite threats of Orange Order violence, La Fontaine was elected as representative of 4th York. However, before La Fontaine could take up his seat, Governor Sydenham died, his replacement, Sir Charles Bagot, was not able to form a mixed cabinet of Reformers and Tories, so he was forced to include the "Canadien party" under La Fontaine. La Fontaine refused to join the Executive Council unless Baldwin was included. Bagot was forced to accede in September, 1842, when he became ill thereafter, Baldwin and La Fontaine became the first real premiers of the Province of Canada. However, in order to take office as ministers, the two had to run for re-election.

While La Fontaine was re-elected in 4th York, Baldwin lost his seat in Hastings as a result of Orange Order violence. It was now that the pact between the two men was solidified, as La Fontaine arranged for Baldwin to run in Rimouski, Canada East; this was the union of the Canadas they sought, where La Fontaine overcame linguistic prejudice to gain a seat in English Canada, Baldwin obtained his seat in French Canada. He first married on July 1831 to Adèle Berthelot, their union produced no children. His real family name is Ménard, he is the son of Antoine Ménard. The Hon. Sir Louis Hypolite Ménard, Bart. Chief Justice of Lower Canada married Montreal, January 30, 1861, the widowed Jane Élisabeth Geneviève Morrison, daughter of Charles Morrison, on January 30, 1861. Julie had married in Thomas Kinton, of the Royal Engineers Department; this second marriage produced two sons. The elder son succeeded to the baronetcy at eighteen months old in February, 1864, but died in 1867; the family residence was Montreal.

The city authorities of Montreal named Louis-Hi

Horizon Guyot

Horizon Guyot is a Cretaceous guyot in the Mid-Pacific Mountains, Pacific Ocean. It is an elongated ridge, over 300 kilometres long and 4.3 kilometres high, that stretches in a northeast-southwest direction and has two flat tops. The Mid-Pacific Mountains lie northeast of the Line Islands, it was formed by a hotspot, but the evidence is conflicting. Volcanic activity occurred during the Turonian-Cenomanian eras 100.5–89.8 million years ago and another stage has been dated to have occurred 88–82 million years ago. Between these volcanic episodes, carbonate deposition from lagoonal and reefal environments set in and formed limestone. Volcanic islands were colonised by plants. Horizon Guyot became a seamount during the Coniacian-Campanian period. Since pelagic ooze has accumulated on the seamount, forming a thick layer, further modified by ocean currents and by various organisms that live on the seamount. Ferromanganese crusts were deposited on exposed rocks; the seamount is named after the research vessel RV Horizon and is known as Horizon Ridge, Horizon Tablemount, Gora Khorayzn and Гора Хорайзн.

During the Deep Sea Drilling Project, the drill cores called Site 44 and Site 171 were taken on Horizon Guyot in 1969 and 1971, respectively. This seamount is the best studied seamount of the Mid-Pacific Mountains and more is known about its morphology than any other seamount of the Mid-Pacific Mountains. Horizon Guyot is part of the Mid-Pacific Mountains. Unlike conventional island chains in the Pacific Ocean, the Mid-Pacific Mountains feature an oceanic plateau with guyots which become progressively younger towards the east. Other guyots in the Mid-Pacific Mountains are Sio South, Thomas, Allen, Jacqueline and Resolution. South of Horizon Guyot, deep water in the "Horizon passage" leads into the Line Islands and Horizon Guyot is sometimes considered to be a member of that chain; the seamount rises 3.4 kilometres -3.5 kilometres to a minimum depth of 1,443 metres –1,440 metres, is a ridge 75 kilometres wide and over 300 kilometres long. It trends in a southwest-northeast direction with an orientation matching that of other structures in the region such as fracture zones on the seafloor.

Faulting has been observed on the western side of the seamount. Two summit platforms lie on the ridge; the eastern one is the larger of these platforms and the western oval-shaped platform lies close to the western end of the ridge. These platforms are flat and are surrounded by a slope break beyond which the guyot falls off steeply to the surrounding abyssal plain; this appearance characterises Horizon Guyot as a guyot although the elongated shape is unlike that of most guyots in the region which have one circular summit platform. At the margin of the platform, lie terraces which are up to 3 kilometres wide and up to 100 metres high and that discontinuously surround the summit platform. On the eastern summit platform there are buried terraces beneath the sediment cover. Sediment layers cover the entire summit of Horizon Guyot, consist of sand, with clay and silt making up a minor part. Features on the sedimented seafloor are flat areas, hummocks and sediment waves. Seismic transects have revealed a relief of about 150 metres in the underlying basement and the presence of a central peak.

Material obtained in drill cores includes chalk, hyaloclastite, limestone and sandstone. In certain areas boulders and cobbles cover the seafloor; the seamount shows evidence of repeated mass failures. Landsliding is triggered by earthquakes. Talus blocks up to 5 metres in size cover the seafloor around Horizon Guyot; the West Pacific Ocean seafloor contains many guyots of Mesozoic age that developed in unusually shallow seas. These are submarine mountains which are characterised by a flat top and the presence of carbonate platforms that rose above the sea surface during the middle Cretaceous. During the Second World War, it was discovered that the seafloor of the Western Pacific Ocean was dotted with numerous flat-topped seamounts; these were promptly identified as sunken islands. About 6% of the Pacific seafloor is covered with a million seamounts. While there are some differences to present-day reef systems, many of these seamounts were atolls. All these structures formed as volcanoes in the Mesozoic ocean.

Fringing reefs may have developed on the volcanoes, which became barrier reefs as the volcano subsided and turned into an atoll. The crust underneath these seamounts tends to subside as it cools, thus the islands and seamounts sink. Continued subsidence balanced by upward growth of the reefs led to the formation of thick carbonate pla
