Biographical Sketch

J. Robert Anderson graduated from Texas Tech with a B. S. in Park Administration in 1973, and from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Master of Landscape Architecture in 1975. He is a Registered Landscape Architect in the state of Texas, and a Distinguished Alumnus Award recipient from the College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources at Texas Tech, and a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, among many other honors.

Scope and Contents

The donation consists of numerous schematic designs, construction sets, originals, portfolio boards, mounted presentations, books, and digital copies of landscape architecture projects undertaken by J. Robert Anderson FASLA, including landmarks in Austin, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City, educational spaces at Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas State, and the University of Texas at Austin, as well as corporate, retail, and residential work. An additional 15 linear feet of materials relating to office operations, books, digital files and photos, marketing materials, and half-size construction sets is included.

As of January 2020, the bulk of files available pertain to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Research Center, also known as the National Wildflower Research Center (NWRC). Those diagrams, drafts, and similar material may be found among the physical collection, as well as our digitized holdings on this site.

Other digitized materials not related to the NWRC are also digitized and available online. Accruals to these materials will be made available at a later date.


Open for Research.

Some archival collections may not yet be arranged and described, or housed in storage outside of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, building. Requests to retrieve such materials may take up to 10 business days to complete. Please contact our Reference Department to arrange retrieval.

Audio, video, and film recordings may not be immediately accessible due to format, condition, or copyright status. All items must be digitized prior to patron use. Because not all collections materials have been digitized, please contact the Reference Archivist at least 10 days prior to arrival in order to coordinate digitization. Though we can digitize much of our holdings within two weeks, some media may be fragile and require specialized digitization outsourcing, which can take up to three months for completion.
