The Cultural Landscape Foundation would like to thank the many people who contributed to making the Richard Haag Oral History a reality.
A project such as this comes to life through the efforts of many individuals. Thank you to Richard Haag and Cheryl Trivison for their friendship, good humor and hospitality and for making time in their busy schedules for the November 2004 and May 2013 interviews. They provided us with tours of Rich’s public and private projects, shared their wonderful home and garden and fueled us with wonderful meals. They and the office staff were extremely helpful in providing hundreds of images. A special thanks goes to Tom Fox, Principal the SWA Group, who carved out time from his busy schedule to travel to Seattle and videotape both the 2004 and 2013 interviews. Bloedel Reserve, which partnered with TCLF for a tour of their garden with Rich Haag in a 2013 Garden Dialogue, was also supportive. We are especially grateful to the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), our Educational Partner for the entire oral history series.
There were many generous funders for this oral history starting with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts Art Works program, The Hubbard Educational Foundation, the Maria & Robert Kelly Stewardship; and the Pauline & Edgar Stern Foundation. The Washington ASLA Chapter was essential to the success of the Kickstarter Campaign, which attracted the support of more than sixty donors and completed the oral history’s funding. Thank you to our Supporting Sponsors: Jestena Boughton, Chris Carlson and Steve Durrant, Keith LeBlanc, Lisa Calibani Lowry, Mario Nievera, Suzanne L. Turner and the Washington ASLA Chapter. Additional thanks go to Gina Ford, Jocelyn Freilinger, Becca Hanson, and Brian Thomson for their generous contributions. Finally, Brice Maryman, Courtney Landoll and Duane Dietz from the WA ASLA Chapter were instrumental in spreading the word and making the campaign a success.
We would like to thank Josh Polansky, Director of the University of Washington, College of Built Environments, Visual Resources Collection who digitized and images from the Richard Haag Associates collection. Seattle photographer Mary Randlett kindly permitted us to use her beautiful images of Rich and his gardens; and Sandra Stern McIver, President of the Pauline & Edgar Stern Foundation an enthusiastic supporter of the project, provided images of her parents’ Haag-designed garden in the San Juan Islands and for the former-family residence, Longue Vue, now Longue Vue House & Gardens, in New Orleans. A special thank you also goes to Helen Hester, neighbor and high school classmate of Richard Haag and Myra Fugate from the Jefferson Kentucky School District for their significant efforts in securing images.
