This video documents a conversation with some of the influential founders and early leaders of the Historic Districts Council, including Kent Barwick, Michael Gruen, Lorna Nowve, and Bronson Binger. The discussion, moderated by HDC Chairman Emeritus Anthony C. Wood, focused on the beginnings of HDC and the preservation movement of the 1970s. The Historic Districts Council was formed in 1971 as a committee at the Municipal Art Society, consisting of representatives from New York City's designated and proposed historic districts. The year 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of its formation.
