Biographical history of John R. Brinley

John Rowlett Brinley (1861-1946) was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey and earned a civil engineering degree from Columbia University School of Mines in 1884. Brinley began his career in Morristown as the town’s engineer and soon embarked on a career in landscape architecture 1885. He married Elizabeth Hall Abeel in 1890 and together they had five children. He remained in Morristown, actively involved in church and civic affairs, serving as the Junior Warden of Church of the Redeemer and as a Trustee on the Board of Morristown Memorial Hospital and Morristown Library for nearly 60 years. Brinley began his career by designing the estate homes and gardens of millionaires in Morristown and the surrounding areas. From a humble beginning, taking small jobs for little to no commission, he continued his career and built a thriving business, designing landscape plans for estates, public buildings, government buildings, gardens and parks. Brinley was also active in organizations outside of Morristown, NJ. He served as a Warden of St. Phillips Church in Mattapoisett, MA, and was a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects; where he became an Elected Fellow in 1908, a member of the Executive Committee of the New York Chapter in 1920, and served as a member of Board of Trustees from 1923 to 1927. Brinley often collaborated with larger architecture offices, such as the Olmsted firm. He worked closely with Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., who is best known for his work on Central Park. Together, Brinley and Olmsted Sr. designed the Kunhardt residence, Kahn Estate (Cedar Court), and the New York Botanical Garden, amongst other commissions. Influenced by Olmsted Sr., Brinley incorporated the American romantic school of landscaping design approach, which uses natural features of landscapes and scenery, when collaborating with other firms. However, when he worked independently, he employed the traditional design methods which focused on the use of axial forms, right angles, floral borders and linear lines.


Biographical history of John S. Holbrook

John Swift Holbrook (1975-1928) was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard in 1896 and also received an architecture degree from Columbia University School of Mines in 1898. From 1898 through 1900, Holbrook lived in France and was in charge of the ground of the United States parks and gardens at the Paris Exposition. During his time in Europe, he studied architecture in the Paris atelier of M. Henri Duray in 1899 and at Kew Gardens of London in 1901. In addition to his studies, he was also exposed to European and Middle Eastern landscape architecture during his travels to Italy, Sicily, Egypt and Germany. Holbrook returned to the United States in the autumn of 1901. He married Grace M. Sinclair of New York City in 1908. Holbrook was well recognized and connected in New York City and New England.


History of Brinley & Holbrook, Landscape Engineers and Architects

John Brinley and John Holbrook began a partnership in 1901 and founded their firm, Brinley & Holbrook landscape engineers and architects, with offices in Morristown and New York City. Five years later (1906), Holbrook left the firm to work for his father as the Vice President of Gorham Manufacturing Company but Brinley continued his career as “Brinley & Holbrook.” The firm's work stretched across Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin, with the majority of commissions in New Jersey and New York. Some of Brinley's most famous projects include the New York Botanical Garden (NY), Morristown Green (NJ), Blythewood in Bernardsville (NJ), Cedar Court in Morris Township (NJ), and the Hamilton and Florence Vanderbilt Twombly country estate, now Fairleigh Dickinson University.
