Todd, Frederick G. (1876–1948). American landscape-architect. He commenced his career under Olmsted, and later established himself in Canada, where he designed the system of public parks and garden-suburbs around Montréal. He designed the grounds of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building, Regina (1906), the park system around Ottawa (1903), the Town of Mount Royal, Québec (a Garden City—c.1910–11), Point Grey, Vancouver (1907), Tuxedo Park, Winnipeg (1906–8), and many other layouts. Involved in the City Beautiful Movement, he was retained by the Ottawa Improvement Commission from 1902, and was the first resident professional landscape-archi-tect and town-planning consultant in Canada.
