    Default I need your help/suggestions/opinions, etc.

    I need a person to admire (ok, you can laugh if you want to, I am). But, I'm having trouble finding someone and would like to know if ya'll could help me out. Besides Hillary Clinton, do ya'll know of anyone who has been a really big benefactor or philantropist for the Saving Americas Treasures or for any type of charity work that involves the rehabilitation of architectural and interior spaces that are in need of being saved in the United States especially or world wide. I guess it could go beyond historical architecture or interiors and extend to historical landscape architecture. I hold historical rehabilitation dear to my heart but I am having trouble find a "big name" to admire. This is for a project. This person could be dead or alive. Many thanks in advance, Snowy.

    Snow, I don't know who's involved specifically here, but this might be a place to start checking:

    Hi snowqueen!

    Another place to start is here - some of the places in America that have been or are being worked on.

    http://www.saveamericastreasures.org...recipients.htm

    One that I remember because I grew up in Baltimore City, Md. was George Peabody!

    And I remember Don Henley spending money on "The Walden Woods" project. (the legacy of Henry David Thoreau)

    Could be a start or at least spark something for you.

    back on topic... ahem!

    Historic Preservation Activist Joan Maynard

    For more than 30 years, Maynard has been the driving force behind the preservation of historic Weeksville, the pre-Civil War community of freed slaves in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Maynard had no official training as a preservationist when she made it her personal mission to save this unique and special place. Today, she is a Trustee Emeritus of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Maynard's heroic efforts have won her the National Trust's highest honor, the Crowninshield Award.
    Visit the Society for the Preservation of Weeksville and Bedford-Stuyvesant History website for more information.

    Funny you posted his pic. Had a very interesting conversation with my 15 year old son just yesterday.
