Why do we need a newsletter?
A preservation newsletter might seem a bit over the top, but as a group preservation students are separated from
each other because of a variety of factors. The scholarly interest of individuals is relatively unknown, mostly be-
cause preservation is such an interdisciplinary area of study; we do not quite know what the next preservation
student is studying. Hopefully this newsletter will fill that gap. This is a space to let UF preservation students
know what you are doing and what you are studying. If you want to contribute, and I hope you do, please send
an email to jshaugh@ufl.edu.

UF Students Attend National Trust

If you have never been to Tulsa, just ask
Jeannette Ransom or Joe Shaughnessy
about the nation's largest concentration of
art-deco architecture. The students, along
with Professor Marty Hylton, attended
the National Preservation Conference in
Tulsa, from October 21st through 25th.
The students manned a booth to promote
the academic programs at University of
Florida and the summer institutes, includ-
ing the Preservation Institute Nantucket
program (PI:N), and the field school in St.
Augustine. There was a significant interest
in the Masters of Historic Preservation, es-
pecially from students from other schools
that have undergraduate degrees in preser-
vation or allied fields. There were several
interesting speakers at this year's confer-
ence, and several hot topics like sustain-
ability, heritage tourism, and disaster plan-
ning. It was a great opportunity to meet
other preservation students from around
the country, to learn about their programs
and study areas. Hopefully, the conference
next year in Nashville will be able to dupli-
cate the success at Tulsa.

Recent Past Workshop Held at UF

University of Florida and the Harn Museum of Art recently hosted a public workshop entitled, Evaluating Cul-
tural Resources of the Recent Past in Florida, from November 6th through 9th. Before the conference started in
earnest, the Florida Historical Commission (FHC) held their national review meeting. The Fountainebleau Ho-
tel was among many of the interesting nominations that were brought for review before being passed along to the
National Register for review. After the FHC meetings, the presentations began with a wonderful presentation by
Allan Shulman on the Promises ofParadise: Staging Mid-Century Miami and followed by one ofJeanne Lambin's
classic, impassioned demonstrations on Preserving Resources from the Recent Past. Workshops began on Friday, at-
tendants were broken up into different rotating groups led by facilitators Ellen Uguccioni, Barbara Mattick, Allan
Shulman, Marty Hylton, Mary Corbin Sies and Isabelle Gourney. The outcome of these group discussions were
later consolidated into a white paper, which will be published soon. During a dinner held at Kanapaha Gardens,
Dr. Marvin Dunn gave a presentation entitled, African-American Cultural Sites of the Recent Past in Florida. Dr.
Dunn discussed the problems associated with preserving and creating awareness for African-American sites in
areas that are hostile to telling the whole story of Florida's history. The workshop wrapped with a tour of recent
past sites at the University of Florida led by Susan Tate and Richard Shieldhouse, followed the next day by a gal-
lery talk by Alfred Browning Parker.

What did you do last summer?

University of Florida has a number of opportunities to earn summer credits outside of Gaines-
ville. Nobody really enjoys staying in the swamp during the summer, so why not enroll in one of
UF's popular Preservation Institutes? The department of Design, Construction, and Planning
currently offers three possible options: PI:Nantucket, PI:St. Augustine, and PI:Caribbean. PI:N
and PI:SA are both concentrated on practical preservation issues, documentation, and hands-on
projects, while PI:C is more design-based within a historical context.
Report from Preservation Institute:

.- PI:N was a success for the summer of
2008, and UF students showed up in
force to attend the summer program.
T'he group documented 33 Orange
Street and worked on several individual
projects. This year the group produced
detailed drawings of the house and a
historic structures report. The program
culminated in a public presentation, in
which the summer's work was displayed
to the delight of the towns people of

UF students that attended include:
Matt Armstrong, Kimberlee Hensley,
Gareth Morgan, Josh Bodenweiser,
Jeannette Ransom, Illeana Olmos,
Tram Tran, Kelly Rhinesmith, Stepha-
nie Murray, Rebecca Knapp, andJoe

Awards and Accolades:

Abbott Tract Project Wins Award
The Abbott Tract Conservation Project, a graduate student project for Professor Roy Eugene Graham's Field
Work Preservation class, received the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation's Education/Media Award for
2007-08. During the Fall 2007 semester, students in ARC6911 participated in a comprehensive study of the
Abbott Tract Historic Neighborhood in St. Augustine, Florida. The students produced a conservation study
and strategy of the area including: local history, neighborhood architecture, a planning proposal, and design
guidelines. They presented their project to residents of the Abbott Tract and St. Augustine in December. The
Uptown Neighborhood Association, which includes the Abbott Tract, has used the student's work to discuss
adopting a Conservation district. Ann Baird, Josh Bodenweiser, and Jeannette Ransom, students in the Histor-
ic Preservation program attended the Florida Trust Conference in Pensacola with Professor Graham and Dean
Christopher Silver. Josh and Jeannette presented the project in a student workshop on Thursday, May 15th.

Widmer Presents at Slew of Conferences
Jocelyn Widmer, an active PhD student at UF, has presented various paper topics at many conferences and
plans on many more. In October she presented Conservation Strategies To Protect Historic St. Augustine Neigh-
borhoodwith Josh Bodenwiser at the APT International Conference in Montreal.
A few weeks later she repeated her performance at the Annual Conference on Historic and Cultural Preserva-
tion held at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island. She has several planned presentations, includ-
ing Nesting Stewardship within the Management Strategies of World Heritage Sites at 6th Biennial Symposium,
