Date/Time

Jun 18, 2014

Description

After graduating from MIT with a degree in landscape architecture in 1904, Coffin established a successful landscape design practice in New York City. Her clients included some of America's most distinguished families, including the Fricks, Vanderbilts, Huttons, and du Ponts. An astute businesswoman who insisted on the same fees as her male counterparts, she designed over 50 significant estate gardens in the Northeast and was recognized for her refined and elegant work, including the gardens of Winterthur. Includes a visit to NYBG's Benenson Ornamental Conifers, designed by Coffin in the 1940s.
