Sidney Herbert Hare (June 27, 1888 - April 18, 1960), better known as S. Herbert Hare, was an American landscape architect and urban planner. Hare was the seventeenth president of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

Early life

Sidney Herbert Hare was born on June 27, 1888, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Mathilda Amelia (née Korfhage) and Sid J.

In 1906, Hare worked with his father briefly before attending college.[3] In 1910, Hare and his father began their architecture firm, Hare & Hare. After his father's death in 1938, Hare continued to run the business.[1][4]

During World War I, Hare was an urban planner for the U.S. Army at Camp Funston and for the United States Housing Corporation.[1]

In 1913, Hare registered as a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and became a fellow in 1919. From 1941 to 1945, Hare served as the society's president.[5] He also served as director of the American Institute of Planners and vice president of the American Planning and Civic Association.[1]
