Beginnings (1892-1903) The organization of Auburn's first football team is credited to George Petrie (George Petrie (American football)), who led the 1892 Tigers (1892 Auburn Tigers football team) to a 2-2 record. Petrie also chose burnt orange and navy blue as the official colors for Auburn athletic teams, which was inspired by his alma mater, the University of Virginia. The first game was against the University of Georgia (1892 Georgia Bulldogs football team) at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Auburn won 10-0 in front of a crowd of 2,000, in a game that would establish the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. Auburn met in-state rival Alabama for the first time ever at Lakeview Park in Birmingham, Alabama during the 1893 (1893 Auburn Tigers football team) season, which ended with a 32-22 victory for the Tigers. Auburn was led by nine different coaches over a 12-year span, which most notably included John Heisman (1895–1899), for whom the Heisman trophy is named. During five years, Heisman compiled a 12-4-2 record, before departing for Clemson in 1900. Auburn's first conference membership came in 1895, when it joined the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The first conference championship and undefeated season came in 1900 (1900 Auburn Tigers football team), when the Tigers went 4-0 under coach Billy Watkins. birth_date He entered the Army on September 1, 1942, and was a member of the 2nd Battalion, 29th Quartermaster Regiment.

(Image:Birmingham District copy.jpg) In 1919, Manning’s talents took him to Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked on a new design for the city. He recommended a radical resource-based plan which included “multiple neighborhood-based centers determined by available resources” (Karson, 2001). He also makes note of the importance of parks throughout the city stating that “the cities that are best designed have about one-eight of their area in parks and about one acre to 75 people” (Manning, 1919). This approach was in direct contrast to the then popular City Beautiful movement which emphasized monumental civic centers and Beaux Arts architecture style public buildings (Karson, 2001). The architectural design of the Chicago Columbian Exposition was based in the City Beautiful movement, but now, on his own, Manning decided on a different course following his own landscape theories which were based on the natural available resources. This idea was the basis for his creation of the “wild garden” which he applied to many of his landscape designs.
