Biographical note
According to Tony P. Wrenn, AIA Archivist in 1983: "It was during Kendall's presidency that the AIA Committee on Conservation of Public Architecture gave its first report. The committee had been suggested by Richard Upjohn to the Convention in 1890 and authorized by the convention delegates. It was Kendall who moved at the Board meeting of January 3rd, 1891, that the Committee be formed, and again, at the April 3, 1891 Board meeting, moved that the President of the New York Chapter be Chairman. Saving the Treasury Building on Wall Street was one of the main aims of the committee. This was, I believe, the first direct AIA involvement in historic preservation and led through various committees to today's Committee on Historic Resources."
