C100 Comments On Foreign Missions Center Walter Reed Historic Properties

Loretta Neumann

The Committee of 100 is greatly distressed also to learn that the plan anticipates substantial demolition of most of the historic buildings on the portion of the campus that is going to be used for the new Foreign Missions Center. This seems to counter one of statements made by a State Department representative who said, “We are committed to protecting historic resources.” The devil is, as the old saying goes, in the details.
