Message from the President

By December 12, 2016 No Comments

Dear Members,

On October 28th, the California Historical Resources Commission voted unanimously to recommend that twelve of the most important buildings designed by master architect E. Stewart Williams be listed on the National Register of Historic Places! The final step will be the formal listing of the properties by the Keeper of the National Register in Washington D.C. with a decision expected by the end of this year.  

In 2015, 11 buildings designed by Albert Frey were listed in the National Register. All 23 of these nominations were written by PS ModCom founding president, Peter Moruzzi, who is a professional architectural historian.

Many individuals and organizations generously funded the cost of this ambitious project.

Our next goal is to focus on the architecturally important buildings by Donald Wexler for listing in the National Register.  The buildings he designed help make Palm Springs the unique place that it is in the world of modern architecture and cultural tourism.

Given that it is nearly year-end, we felt this was an opportune time to invite you to make a tax deductible donation to further the cause of formally honoring the work of Donald Wexler.

Over the coming years we hope to spearhead more of these nominations and believe that Palm Springs will soon boast not only the highest concentration of mid-century modern architecture in the country, but also the greatest number of buildings listed in the National Register.  Please help us in achieving this important goal!

Donate $100 directly below, or enter your own amount.

Sincerely,

Chris Menrad
President
