Tupper Thomas, Hon. ASLA
2011

Thomas

Tupper Thomas will receive the LaGasse Medal for contributions to the management and conservation of natural resources and public landscapes. Thomas served as the administrator for New York City’s Prospect Park for over 30 years and is credited with almost single-handedly turning the neglected and crime-riddled space into one of the city’s jewels. In 1980, 1.7 million people visited the Fredrick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux designed space. Through Thomas’s efforts, the restored Prospect Park now attracts more than nine million visitors annually.
