Biographical/Historical Note

Hubert Bond Owens was born in Canon, Georgia in the early years of the 20th century. He is considered a major influence on Landscape Architecture; establishing one of the nation's first programs in that field at the University of Georgia in 1928. In the late 1960s the department separated from the School of Ecology and, in 1969, Owens was named the first Dean of the School of Environmental Design. Upon his retirement in 1973, he became Dean Emeritus.
