This scholarship is a tribute to Raymond E. Page, a leader in Southern California landscape architecture from the 1940's through the 1980's. Mr. Page was instrumental in establishing licensure for landscape architects in California. As stated in the March 28, 1992 edition of the Los Angeles Times, Page authored legislation to license landscape architects, making California the first state to grant licenses based on examinations. Page held state license No. 2 out of the 800 originially granted in 1955. Mr. Page was also dedicated to advancing the profession through the development of parks and other public facilities. An award of $1,000 is available to give an undergraduate student the opportunity to follow Mr. Page's example of directing the profession by answering the challenges of tomorrow.
