Haffner (1885-1961), was a graduate of the Beaux Arts and professor of architecture at Harvard University. Haffner states that his compositions "belong to the present era of architecture, to the period of today, to that which characterizes best our habits, our moods, our ways of living. Call it modern or any other name , it is of no consequence. Created by our century, created through new materials, presenting new forms, this era requires also its new design of gardens, as it already has adopted new designs for all the industrial and applied arts."

Compliments of Charles H. Dalton, William Gray Jr, and Henry Lee, Commissioners of Parks. Olmsted was Landscape Architect Advisor to the Board. The Fifth Annual Report is his first report on his design for the first urban park, Back Bay, in what would become Boston's Emerald Necklace of urban parks. "The rationale behind the plan was very far from what was commonly understood as a park, as Olmsted painstakingly explained; the design was primarily a sanitary improvement, the main feature of which was a storage basin for the storm waters of Stony Brook. A second aim was to restore the salt marsh to its original condition." [Cynthia Zaitzevsky in Frederick Law Olmsted and the Boston Park System]. A seminal work in the history of landscape architecture.
