Patrick Geddes
By Regina Hewitt
Although Patrick Geddes is best known for his work in town planning, he deserves recognition as a founding and contributing editor to the 1890s periodical The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal. Despite its short publication history, consisting of only four issues produced from 1895 to 1897, The Evergreen offered a significant alternative to The Yellow Book and other periodicals with aesthetic and modern agendas.
