In Memoriam

Roy H. DeBoer

Roy H. DeBoer (80) died on March 17, 2014.

He began his 50+ year teaching career in 1955 at Rutgers University as a professor, department head (25 years), and founder of the Landscape Architecture Program. In the 1960's, he was the director of Rutgers Gardens, and in the 1970s he established the nationally-accredited LA Program at Rutgers. He continued his involvement in the program through his retirement years.

He was a driving force behind the profession's recognition and state licensure by the State of NJ, and was presented with Licence #.00001. In February, he was honored for his lifetime achievements by the American Society of Landscape Architects and was also honored in September by Rutgers Gardens for Lifetime Service.
