Ralph Hudson served ably for many years as manager of harbors, beaches and park design for California’s Orange County Environmental Management Agency. His pioneering efforts led to the establishment of over 20,000 acres of open space for public recreation, relaxation and education in Orange County. This award honors his memory. In order for landscape architecture to make its full contribution as a profession and a discipline, the knowledge base on which it rests must be systematically examined, tested, refined and extended through providing a high level of university education. This award is intended to advance the educational profession and academic community through research in areas relating to open space, parks and recreation. Application is open to a full-time individual professor in landscape architecture who: 1. holds a degree in landscape architecture; and 2. has at least five years experience in professional practice—private, public or academic or any combination thereof; and 3. must be a full-time university professor in an ASLA accredited program leading to first professional degree at the Bachelors and Masters level; and 4. is a resident of the United States or its possessions, Canada, Mexico or the Islands of the Caribbean, or a citizen of the United States residing or working abroad. Completed applications will be forwarded to the Landscape Architecture Foundation Research Committee for initial review and recommendation. Final selection will be made by an LAF/CLASS Fund jury in the early fall.
