    Antoinette Lee was among the important early voices in calling for inclusion in the field of historic preservation.

    This is from a 2006 press release from the National Park Service.


    Antoinette J. Lee Selected as Assistant Associate Director, Historical Documentation Programs 

    WASHINGTON, D.C.- The National Park Service (NPS) announced the selection of Antoinette J. Lee as the Assistant Associate Director, Historical Documentation Programs, Cultural Resources, National Park Service. 

    Dr. Lee holds a Ph.D. degree from George Washington University and is a recognized expert in historic preservation, architectural history, and preservation documentation. Dr. Lee's NPS career began in 1989 as a historian with the National Register of Historic Places, serving the western states. 

    Her previous career included an 8-year period as a preservation consultant. Dr. Lee's clients included the US Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (US/ICOMOS) for which she prepared the successful World Heritage nomination for Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia. She authored Architects to the Nation: The Rise and Decline of the Supervising Architect's Office (2000), edited Past Meets Future: Saving America's Historic Environments (1992), and was founding editor of CRM: The Journal of Heritage Stewardship, a NPS professional journal. 

    Dr. Lee worked with former NPS Director Robert Stanton to establish the NPS's Cultural Resources Diversity Program, including the internship program and the publications, African Reflections on the American Landscape: Identifying and Interpreting Africanisms and Asian Reflections on the American Landscape: Identifying and Interpreting Asian Heritage.  From 1995 to 2005, she taught the required preservation documentation and field work courses for Goucher College's M.A. in Historic Preservation Program. Prior to her consulting career, she was an Education Services Coordinator at the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

    You might take a look at her essays in Robert Stipe's The American Mosiac: Preserving a Nation's Heritage (US/ICOMOS, 1987) or Stipe's A Richer Heritage: Historic Preservation in the 21st Century (UNC Press, 2003)

    @Jamie Merriman-Cohen I did a quick search of our library (using the search bar at the top of the page) and found the issue in which her essay originally appeared.

    Forum Journal July/August 1992: https://forum.savingplaces.org/viewdocument/julyaugust-1992-forum-journal-foc

    Here is the direct link to her article: https://forum.savingplaces.org/viewdocument/cultural-diversity-i-1

    For those of you who want to read the 2012 update that Lee published you can click here. It was a part of the final print edition of the Forum Journal in 2012 -before we went to all digital-called Game Change which looks back  at the journal since it was launched in 1987. You can see that whole issue here.

    Can you tell us more about why you're looking for the article? Are you working on issues of diversity and inclusion in preservation? (in which case have you see this page?http://forum.savingplaces.org/inclusion

    Let me know if you have any questions. We're all here to help!
