Description:
Julius Gyala Fabos was born in Marcali, Hungary on in 1932, the son of a farming family, and lived through the Allied bombing and German and Soviet battles that took there during World War II.  After World War II, with the communist takeover of Hungary, Fabos was targeted and sent to work and prison camps in the country.  During the Hungarian Revolution in 1956, Fabos escaped to Austria, where he eventually immigrated to the United States.  While in the US, he obtained degrees at Rutgers and Harvard, and had a long career as a professor at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in the Department of Landscape Architecture.
