BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Harold Caparn was a landscape architect who was active in New York during the first four decades of of the twentieth century. He was born in Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, England and was educated at the University of London and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. After arriving in the United States in September, 1889, he worked first in Pittsburgh (1890-1897) and then, beginning in 1899, in New York. He consulted for the New York Zoological Park in the Bronx and designed parts of the landscape and Great Steps of the Bronx Zoo. He was among the first to teach landscape architecture at Columbia University, where he taught from 1911-1913. In 1912, he became the consulting landscape architect for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, working there for over thirty-two years and designing many areas of the site, including the Cranford Rose Garden, the Magnolia Plaza, the Osborne Garden, the Herb Garden, the Horticultural Section, and the Systematic Section (now called the Plant Family Collection). He also designed parks in Yonkers, Newark, and Manhattan, park-like spaces such as the Woodland Garden at the 1939 World's Fair and Lake View Cemetery in Ithaca, New York, as well as landscape designs for private estates. He was elected a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1905 and was elected president in 1912.
