Remembering Anne Millard
A founding director of FRIENDS of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, and its president for over 20 years, Anne Millard was the spirited leader of one of New York City’s strongest neighborhood preservation not-for-profits. Taking the torch from FRIENDS’ first president, Halina Rosenthal, Millard continued efforts to preserve the architectural legacy, livability, and sense of place of the neighborhood she called home. Her warmth and cheerful disposition made her an effective advocate. An ardent preservationist, she was also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Preservation League of New York State and a member of the Board of Directors of the Park Avenue Armory. Millard, age 78, passed away on April 14, 2013.
