Robert S. "Doc" Reich, PhD, FASLA

The Jot D. Carpenter Teaching Medal is awarded to an individual who has made a sustained and significant contribution to landscape architecture education.

 Robert S. “Doc” Reich, PhD, FASLA, has inspired generations of practitioners through his teaching. He led the landscape architecture program at Louisiana State University from its inception in 1946 until retiring in 1983 and remains professor emeritus. He holds LSU’s highest teaching honor, Alumni Professor, and in 1992 received ASLA’s highest honor, the ASLA Medal. Several years ago, the Louisiana chapter of ASLA produced a film about Dr. Reich’s life. In it, when asked what he thought was his biggest contribution to the profession, he replied “developing a corps of disciples, who go out with the same philosophy and do great things…a lot greater than I’ve done.”

Read the nomination letter from Chad Danos, ASLA, and support letters from Sadik C. Artunc, FASLA, Charles Fryling, Jr., ASLA, and L. Azeo Torre, FASLA.
