Wayne Donaldson Appointed as State Historic Preservation Officer
A long-time supporter of SOHO, Wayne Donaldson is a Lifetime Member of our organization and an ardent voice for historic preservation. On April 7, Wayne was appointed as State Historic Preservation Officer. SOHO believes Wayne to be the best person that could have been chosen for this position, and we are very pleased with the governor's choice.
Since 1978, Milford Wayne Donaldson has served as president of Architect Milford Wayne Donaldson, FAIA, a firm specializing in historic renovation and preservation and adaptive reuse of existing structures.
Mr. Donaldson's extensive experience includes the practice and the instruction of architecture. From 1976 to 1984, he was an instructor of architecture at Southwestern Community College. From 1972 to 1978, he was an associate architect for Moser Drew Watson, AIA, and from 1969 to 1970 he was an instructor in architecture at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
He is licensed to practice architecture in California, Nevada, and Arizona. He holds a certified license from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. He is affiliated with several historical and preservation organizations including the Historic State Capitol Commission, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Building Standards Commission, and the State Historic Resources Commission.
Mr. Donaldson holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He received a Master of Science in Architecture from University of Strathclyde, Scotland, and a Master of Arts in History from University of California, San Diego.
Although San Diego stands to lose an architect who did much for historic preservation locally, the state gains a State Historic Preservation Officer with a wealth of experience, wide-ranging training and a demonstrated dedication to historic preservation. We congratulate him on his appointment and wish him well in this new venture!
