Reclaiming America’s Riverfronts: A French Perspective

A new title in the RMHP Final Reports Collection

Florence Declavellière is our 2016 RMHP Scholar. We could apply to her the promising phrase published in The New York Times in 1983, when I founded FHS, at the time Friends of Vieilles Maisons Françaises:  “Menestrel says that in America, the sky is the limit.”  In five weeks, Florence, truly a ball of energy, brought back a rich cargo, useful to her profession, and delivered us a Final Report to enhance the Collection.

Upon her return, Florence wrote: [The RMHP is] a professional recognition which, I hope, will lead to new opportunities and deepen my acquisition of a dual culture which influences me on a daily basis, as I remain part of a network strengthened through each of our biannual reunions and enriched each year with the addition of new members: truly an extraordinary human adventure in which all possibilities can be achieved.”

— Michèle le Menestrel Ullrich
