From the prospectus:
We first became aware of the story of a lawsuit between Fredrick Law Olmsted and John Jacob Astor during our college years studying landscape architecture. The story came to us in the form of a typescript without images, cited source, or explanation. It had a ring of authenticity, but we never gave it much thought beyond understanding it as one part of the legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted.
