Time passes by all too swifly. I promised many of you the link to the memorial video played on February 17, 2012 at the UGA gathering in honor of our friend, the late Jim Cothran, FASLA.
Susan Hitchcock and I photographed and keynoted images of the many trophies, family photos and manuscripts that Lynn Cothran shared with us. A voice-over of the eulogies fromt the funeral is included on this video link.This a “Home Movie” and I think, very sweet. It also features colleagues at the Cherokee Garden Library memorial gathering and includes images sent from many friends.
In memoriam Jim Cothran, FASLA (click here)
We share a kinship as a loosely formed group of garden historians, garden club members and landscape architects who knew Jim. In the past short month since his passing, scarcely a day goes by that I don’t think of him. In so many ways, Jim Cothran was the face of garden history in Georgia and South Carolina, and in the South in general. He had such gentle, all abiding interest in our cultural landscape ways.
Lynn has his slide collection and asked me what to do with them. She even has my old slide projector given to Jim when his antique projector bit the dust! It inspired me to send you each gift, a link to 4800 inspirational images of gardens from my archives. The garden history ones are particularly popular (012 series). Please share these galleries with your friends http://learn.dargan.com/
I wish Jim’s slides could be scanned for posterity and shared similarly. Any ideas?
I do not have a complete list of who came, or couldn’t or wanted to be there and just found out, so please share http://vimeo.com/36870419 in honor of Jim.
