Fall HUNI Quarterly Meeting on Thursday, September 12, 2013, Featured Jim Glass

Our speaker was Dr. James A. Glass who talked about various field sessions of the Preservation Conference held by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Indianapolis October 29th to November 2nd.  Indianapolis had large number of field sessions that are unique and very interesting even to those of us who live in Indiana. It was a interesting and exciting presentation and created much interest in the upcoming conference.

Dr. Glass is a historic preservation and heritage consultant and was the Chair of the Field Session Committee for the Preservation Conference.  Dr. Glass has served as Director of the Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer for the State of Indiana from 1990 to 1994 and again from 2007 until his retirement at the end of 2012.  Perhaps his greatest preservation legacy in Indiana are the many preservationists who studied at Ball State University while he was Director of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation and was the founding Director of the Center for Historic Preservation at Ball State.  Dr. Glass holds a Ph.D. in architectural history and historic preservation planning from Cornell University and an M.A. from Cornell in the history of city planning.

Kelly Gascoine from Indiana Landmarks will also talked at the fall HUNI meeting about volunteer opportunities for the Preservation Conference and the candlelight tour…Information that could be shared with your neighborhoods.  To make a great impression on the 2,500 visitors expected from across the country, Indiana Landmarks needed lots of volunteers!
