Dick Wolf Memorial Lecture

  • Hill Center 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

On behalf of the Capitol Hill Restoration Society, the Overbeck History Project urges you to attend a free lecture at Hill Center on Friday, March 27, where William King of the Georgetown University Law Center will address the question whether city officials are given too much latitude regarding demolition of historic properties. This is CHRS's first annual Dick Wolf Memorial Lecture, named in honor of the distinguished preservation activist who served for many years as the organization's president.

The event is set for 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with mayor's agent Peter Byrne and former Historic Preservation Review Board chairman Tersh Boasberg. Hill Center is located at 9th and Pennsylvania S.E., two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro stop.

The Dick Wolf Memorial Lecture will be an annual event showcasing excellence in research and writing by a student or intern on urban planning and historic preservation.
