2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: CAMILLE W. YOW VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

ED DAUGHERTY
Atlanta

Since 1978, The Georgia Trust has recognized a volunteer of the year with the Camille W. Yow Award, named after the long-time volunteer who was the first award recipient.

Ed Daugherty has been a fierce protector of Atlanta's natural and built environment since the 1950s. As a landscape architect, he was a leader of the Modernist movement in Georgia and the Southeast, designing a vast array of easily recognizable projects in the region, including the Georgia Governor's Mansion, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, landscapes at Georgia Tech, the Garden at Egleston Hospital, and the preservation of the Marietta Square. He is a Fellow in the American Society of Landscape Architects, and a recipient of the Award of Excellence for Lifelong Contributions to Landscape Architecture in Atlanta from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission.

On top of his successful professional achievements, Mr. Daugherty has given tirelessly to local causes that are near and dear to him – including Trees Atlanta and All Saints Episcopal Church, among many others. The Georgia Trust is fortunate to be one of the organizations that has benefited from Ed's passion and perspective. Over the past year, Ed has volunteered numerous hours as a member of the Rhodes Hall Landscape Committee. In addition to providing expert advice and perspective for planning the landscape project, he has also measured and drawn prospective plans and consulted with several contractors. Perhaps, more than anything, we are grateful for Ed's invaluable memory of the development history of Rhodes Hall and midtown Atlanta where for many years he kept an office in North Rhodes Center, a building that once occupied the property adjacent to Rhodes Hall. We are extremely thankful to Ed for the watchful eye that he has long kept on Rhodes Hall, and for his commitment and selfless contributions made to the Rhodes Hall Landscape Committee.
