Cary Wiesner

Honorary Member

I have a well-rounded background in historic preservation.  I received my M.A. in Historical Administration from Eastern Illinois University, with a curriculum that included coursework in historic preservation and architecture.  As part of my coursework I completed a nomination for the National Register of Historic Places.  For the past 3 ½ years I have been the Historian at Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.  My duties here include Section 106 compliance, serving as the park’s paraprofessional archeologist, and performing historic research including research on the historic structures within the park.

I have lived in West Branch for a decade and I have taken a great interest in the city and its history.  I feel my background and experience will be a valuable asset to the historic preservation commission.  In this position I will serve as the representative of the superintendent and as such I will foster cooperation between the Park Service and the city in historic preservation matters.
