The Man Who Loved Trees
by Annaliese Bischoff
The Man Who Loved Trees tells the story of Frank A. Waugh (1869-1943) and his evolving love for trees. Waugh was a professor of landscape architecture and a pioneering advocate of native planting design. He wrote prolifically about trees and landscape design, publishing over twenty books and three hundred articles. He urged people to enjoy nature in the way that they enjoyed music or painting or sculpture. In the last seven years of his life, Waugh created at least 223 etchings, many of them trees, but few have been viewed by the public. Annaliese Bischoff was inspired to write The Man Who Loved Trees after visiting an antique store in 2019, where she stumbled upon the prospectus for Waugh’s book. It was packed in an orange crate along with over 150 etchings and drawings Waugh had created. Her book describes how Waugh’s life as a professional landscape architect and renowned writer inspired him to learn the art of printmaking. Waugh’s etchings reflect the themes he used in analyzing nature and in landscape design. Bischoff catalogs Waugh’s loving portrayal of trees as individuals, families, and social groups.

by Susan Kellam
After their nuclear family exploded into a vaporous mushroom cloud, the two siblings could only duck and cover. The young Susan basked in her brother Robert's glow. Teachers singled her out because, certainly, the little sister would excel too. But how could she ever reach their expectations? Instead, she rebelled, chose the wrong men, drank and took drugs. Susan talked her way into a job at Rolling Stone magazine in 1976. Three years later, as an organizer of five nights of No Nukes concerts at Madison Square Garden with Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, and many others, she got snared in the rock politics scramble and her brother saved her. Many years later, though, she could not save him. Only in retrospect can Susan piece together how Robert's too-brief life was a brilliant disguise. Traumatized by their childhood experience, he buried his pain behind an outsized personality. On his twelfth wedding anniversary in 1990, he ended his life. Brilliant Disguise winds together Susan's rock-and-roll odyssey with an exploration of Robert's life, teasing out clues as to why the past so dangerously swamped him.59%47
