Dan Kiley’s legacy
February 21st of this year marked the ten-year anniversary of the death of landscape architect Daniel Urban Kiley. Soon after Kiley’s death in 2004, J. Irwin Miller sent an e-mail to Allen Freeman of Landscape Architecture Magazine expressing his thoughts on Kiley’s legacy:
"It is no exaggeration to state that Dan’s work was the best of its kind and will be influential in American landscape architecture for a very long time. I worked with Dan on at least half a dozen jobs public and private and never found him to be anything but an inspired leader in his profession whose work will have lasting influence in this and other countries.”
