President Obama announces

Milford Wayne Donaldson as Chair of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

Milford Wayne DonaldsonOn May 18, President Obama named Milford Wayne Donaldson, FAIA, to chair the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). Donaldson currently serves as the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) for the state of California. The SHPO serves as chief administrative officer of the Office of Historic Preservation in Sacramento and as Executive Secretary of the State Historical Resources Commission. Prior to his appointment as SHPO, Mr. Donaldson served as president of the multi award winning firm Architect Milford Wayne Donaldson, FAIA since 1978, specializing in historic preservation services. He is the first architect to lead the agency since its creation in 1966.

Donaldson will not only work to make sure historic buildings are not demolished unnecessarily, but also that they are not destroyed by insensitive modifications, such as using vinyl windows for energy-efficiency instead of period-appropriate ones.
