Yesterday, National Trust for Historic Preservation President Richard Moe was interviewed for Washington, DC's The Q&A Cafe with Carol Joynt. The 45-minute conversation covered a variety of topics -- from the changing role of the vice president (Moe was chief of staff to Vice President Walter Mondale), to the newest National Trust Historic Site, President Lincoln's Cottage, to the importance of Main Street communities. He discussed endangered sites in DC -- most notably St. Elizabeth's Hospital and the Smithsonian Arts & Industries building, both of which have been listed on the 11 Most Endangered list in recent years. Moe also fielded questions on the relationship between historic preservation and sustainability, the ongoing restoration efforts along the Gulf Coast, and the National Trust's first international project, Finca Vigia in Cuba.
If you happen to be in the DC area, the program will be repeated several times over the weekend:
- Friday at 8:00 p.m. on Washington, DC Cable/TV-16,
