Attention Landscape Architecture alumni:

Did you take classes with J. Brooks Breeden, FASLA Emeritus, a professor of Landscape Architecture in the Knowlton School of Architecture at OSU for 31 years (1974-2005)? When he retired in 2005, he and his wife, Peggy Breeden, relocated to Springfield, VA. He passed away in 2012, and she would love to connect with his former students. Please email us for her contact information!

We have a brand new executive board! If you’re looking to contact us, be sure to check out our updated website for the most current info. (Don’t worry, if you email the wrong person, we’ll be sure to pass your email along!)
