The Zube lecture series is named for Erv Zube, head of the department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning (LARP) from 1974-80. Internationally known for his leadership in developing a culture of academic research in the profession of landscape architecture, his research made numerous seminal contributions to landscape planning theory and practice. He left UMass for the University of Arizona, where he continued his renowned research and teaching until he died in 2001.

Zube and his wife Margaret endowed this lectureship at UMass in 2004 to “bring scholars to the department to stimulate and enrich our academic community in landscape architecture and planning." The Zube endowment has been supported generously by alumni, students and faculty.

We honor their leadership and generosity through the lecture series which continues to enrich our community with the thoughts and works of local, national and international academic and professional leaders. The department is pleased to accept donations of any amount to continue to build and enlarge the endowment.
