The two people primarily responsible for the early campus landscaping that has resulted in the wide variety of trees and plants that we now enjoy on campus were Coulson Tough (Campus Architect) and Gene Uematsu (Landscape Architect).  The photographs (below) of the grounds preparation and the new campus landscaping were taken in 1965 and 1966.
