The Noreen Stonor Drexel Cultural and Historic Preservation Program's annual conference, focusing this year on "Preservation and Memory," will explore the complex relationship between the past and the present as it plays out in the preservation and interpretation of buildings, objects, monuments and landscapes.

Paul F. Miller will deliver the Richard A. Grills Keynote Address in Historic Preservation. Miller, the recent Frederick C. Williamson Professional Leadership Award recipient, has decades of service to Newport as a curator and public scholar of decorative arts, historic architecture and social history.
