Fall Forum Luncheon
“Cincinnati Unearthed: Victories in Historic Preservation”
Cincinnati Preservation Association’s 18th annual Fall Forum on Historic Preservation luncheon will be held on Friday, October 25 at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel’s Hall of Mirrors.
Kenneth Barnett Tankersley, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Archeology at the University of Cincinnati will present the astonishing archeological and historic resources of the Cincinnati/Ohio River Valley. Dr. Tankersley will bring us up to date on important local issues so our world-class resources won’t be lost.
Dr. Tankersley’s fieldwork has been featured in dozens of media outlets including Science, National Geographic, Scientific American, Archaeology, American Archaeology, Natural History, PBS, NOVA and BBC Nature as well as local, national and international newspapers, magazines, radio and television. He has been a Foreign Delegate for the National Academy of Science, a Carnegie Mellon Scholar Lecturer, and guest editor of Scientific American Magazine.
Speakers in previous years include Patricia Gay, Executive Director of the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans, Charles Birnbaum, Founder and President, Cultural Landscape Foundation and John Stubbs, Senior Professor of Architectural Preservation Practice and Director of the Masters in Preservation Studies Program at the Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This year CPA is pleased to bring the focus of the Fall Forum Luncheon to the Greater Cincinnati area and to CPA’s roots. When CPA began in 1964, one of the first tasks of the newly organized group was to sponsor an archaeological excavation of an endangered prehistoric site at the Ohio and Great Miami Rivers, which was known as Miami Fort.
The success of the event is due to the consistent quality of our speakers and to our sponsors and guests who lend their name and financial support to the event. The money we raise goes to support historic preservation activities that save many buildings each year.
CPA would like to thank our generous sponsors who have committed to date:
