Bosco-Milligan Executive Director Cathy Galbraith was honored this past Wednesday with the second annual George McMath Award for Historic Preservation. The University of Oregon presented Galbraith with the award for her long career and inexhaustible commitment to historic preservation. Since 1993 Galbraith has served as the Executive Director of the Bosco-Milligan Foundation.
Each year, the University of Oregon and the Venerable Group, Inc. present the McMath Award to a leader in the field of historic preservation who has made important contributions throughout the state of Oregon. The award is named in honor of the late George McMath, considered to be the father of preservation in Portland. Both an architect and a preservationist, McMath devoted a lifetime to preserving and restoring Portland’s rich architectural history.
A hearty congratulations to Cathy!
