A man who served more than 30 years as president of Indiana Landmarks has died. The organization credits Reid Williamson with turning it into "a national leader in preservation." He retired from the role in 2005 and Indiana Landmarks' annual prize for outstanding leadership is named in his honor. Williamson was 82.
Williamson began as president in 1973 and during his time in office, the organization says its membership, staff and endowment grew, as well as its footprint expanded statewide through the creation of regional offices.
In a statement posted to Facebook Tuesday, Indiana Landmarks said:
We are deeply sorry to report the death of Reid Williamson. Many of our friends will remember Reid, who was the president of Indiana Landmarks for over 30 years before he retired in 2005. He shaped Indiana Landmarks into the dynamic organization we are today, and made us a national leader in preservation. Reid passed away in Georgia on Sunday morning. We will miss him.
