|Cooley House presents John Stubbs at ULM hall|
John H. Stubbs, of the World Monuments Fund in New York, will speak at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, at ULM's Biedenharn Recital Hall.
His talk is entitled "Conserving World Architectural Heritage Including the Recent Past." This marks the first educational program offered by the Cooley House, and the event will be free and open to the public.
John Stubbs grew up in Monroe and graduated from Neville High School in 1968. He attended LSU and later Columbia University. He spent several summers working as a draftsman for his father William King Stubbs, an architect whose office was on the top floor of the old Ouachita Bank Building (new Vantage Health Care Building).
His love of architecture came not only from his father, but also from his mother, who with his grandmother, was a key figure in saving the Isaiah Garrett Law Office on the bank of the Ouachita River across from the Courthouse. John began advocating saving downtown Monroe as early as 1972. Though no longer living in Monroe, he remains dedicated to the city and serves on the Advisory Board of Directors for the Cooley House Foundation.
In addition to his work with the World Monuments Fund, Stubbs is also an Adjunct Associate Professor of Historic Preservation in Columbia University's Graduate Program in Historic Preservation where he teaches a course in International Architectural Conservation Practice.
He recently completed a book entitled Time Honored; A Global View of Architectural Conservation (John Wiley & Sons), of which one reviewer commented, "…only John Stubbs could have written since he has traveled the world and participated in or observed contemporary architectural conservation practice probably more than any other person."
The World Monuments Fund is the leading private organization dedicated to saving the world's most treasured places. For over 40 years the WMF staff has worked around the world in more than 90 countries to preserve important architectural and cultural heritage sites. In addition to being Vice President for Field Projects, Stubbs also oversees the WMF's World Monuments Watch program. He and his staff are responsible for tracking progress and stimulating positive conservation actions at over 250 sites in 86 countries.
