2013 PRESERVATION AWARDS: MARY GREGORY JEWETT AWARD

Richard Cloues
Atlanta, Fulton County

Dr. Richard Cloues worked with Georgia's survey, National Register, environmental review, and tax incentives programs at the State Historic Preservation Office from 1978 until his recent retirement. Throughout his career, Cloues helped broaden the state's perspective on its historic resources. He guided Georgia's first study of African American buildings in 1984, identifed historic house types and styles through Georgia's Living Places project, contributed to the establishment of Georgia's National Register program, and assessed and documented cultural resources along Georgia's rivers for the Department of Natural Resource's RiverCare 2000 project. In recent years, Dr. Cloues has been nationally recognized for his research on the Ranch House, Split-Level and American Small House types. He has almost single-handedly pushed for recognition and respect of these now-historic mid-century house types, and other aspects of our recent past.
