Timothy Baird, of Cornell University, received his nomination, in Knowledge, from the Council of Fellows Executive Committee. Drawing on the lessons gleaned from an extraordinarily distinguished multi-faceted career, including practice at internationally recognized firms and teaching at Cornell, Penn State and Texas Tech, Baird has imparted both theoretical and practical wisdom to the next generation of landscape architects, serving both as a mentor and exemplar. Because of his extraordinary work as a thought leader, innovator, researcher and accomplished practitioner, he has provided his students with both a model to follow and the knowledge and wisdom to become highly regarded professionals in their own right. His studios are among his many academic innovations and now include interdisciplinary collaboration between architecture and landscape architecture students, an acknowledgment of the realities of the professional world they will come to inherit. Baird's service for eight years as a devoted member of the Flight 93 National Memorial Task Force, and as manager of the international memorial design competition, reveals a selfless dedication to the highest ideals of the profession and sets an extraordinary example for his students and the entire landscape architecture community.

As seen in LASN magazine, October 2018.
