Biographical Note

Charles Coatsworth Pinkney was born in 1906 in Denver to Jessie and Fred Coatsworth Pinkney. In 1927, he graduated from Colorado A & M where he majored in horticulture and entomology. Pinkney received his Master of Science in Landscape Architecture from Harvard in 1934. He was awarded the Charles Elliot traveling fellowship that allowed him to study in Europe for a year.

Pinkney married Evelyn Robinson Pinkney in 1934, and in 1939, the Pinkney family moved to Austin where he opened his own landscape architecture office. He was a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Austin Garden Club, and Heritage Society. Pinkney passed away in 1994.
