Virginia possess a rich architectural legacy but regrettably fire, war, neglect, development, and changing tastes have brought about the loss of many outstanding historic resources. Lost Virginia, a publication co-authored by Calder Loth, documents vanished landmarks of the Commonwealth that should not be forgotten. Loth’s illustrated lecture will offer rare images from the book as well as of works that did not make publication, including numerous Alexandria buildings and nearby places.
Calder Loth is the retired Senior Architectural Historian of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. He serves as Vice-President of the Center for Palladian Studies in America and a member of the Virginia Art and Architectural Review Board. His publications include The Virginia Landmarks Register, Virginia Landmarks of Black History, Lost Virginia, as well as numerous articles relating to historic preservation and classical architecture. In 2008 Loth was the first recipient of the Secretary of the Interior’s Preservation Award for service to state preservation programs. In 2017 he received the Virginia AIA Honor Award for significant contributions to the understanding of Virginia’s built environment. Please join us in welcoming Calder back to the Alexandria Association!
With sadness, we announce the passing of Mrs. Opal Beverly, Alexandria Association Director Emeritus and Kathy Kelly both long time members and strong supporters of historic preservation in Alexandria.
