Profiling Preservation in Massachusetts
2010 marks Preservation Massachusetts' 25th Anniversary as the statewide non-profitpromoting the preservation of our Commonwealth. In celebrating this milestone event, we wishto acknowledge those individuals who have made a difference in the landscape of historicpreservation in Massachusetts. PM wanted to find a way to share the stories, successes (andlosses) that made the Massachusetts preservation community what it is today.Profiles in Preservation is a way to recognize the amazing achievements of so manyindividuals. From the founders of some of our state's strongest non-profits and localpreservation advocates to pro-active legislators and developers adaptively re-using historicstructures, their instrumental contributions have made Massachusetts' preservation what it istoday. As PM envisions it, Profiles in Preservation will be a chronology of the preservation, toldthrough the people who founded the non-profits, saved the homes, championed legislation,rehabbed the mills. From the often unsung local advocates to the innovative developers tolegislators, each story and effort has advanced preservation from an idea to a broader ethic,bridging economics and sustainable building. Those individuals included in Profiles inPreservation will be honored at Preservation Massachusetts' 25th Anniversary Dinner on May5, 2010 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston.The Profiles will be selected through a nomination process. Nomination forms are available onPM's website, www.preservationmass.org or call 617-723-3383 for a hard copy or withquestions. Deadline for submission is October 2, 2009.Make your nomination to Profiles in Preservation today!
