Lambeth and Manning's groundbreaking 1913 work is a study of Thomas Jefferson, not as author, politician, or statesman, but as architect and landscape designer. Thomas Jefferson, without special training, designed and oversaw the construction of two of the architectural masterpieces of the world: the University of Virginia and Monticello.

Author William Alexander Lambeth, M.D., Ph.D was Professor of Hygiene and Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds at the University of Virginia.

Author Warren H. Manning was an influential American landscape designer who promoted an informal and natural approach to garden design. Manning, who worked in Frederick Law Olmsted's office for eight years, was a key figure in the formation of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
