It is with great sadness that US/ICOMOS reports the passing of long time member and supporter Dorothy (Dori) Carroll. Mrs. Carroll was an invaluable volunteer at US/ICOMOS for many years. Her husband, M. Elliott Carroll, FAIA, FAPT, who passed away in 2004, served as the Chairman of US/ICOMOS from 1986-1990 and as an International Vice President of ICOMOS from 1990-1996. Both were tireless champions for international understanding and cultural exchange.

The U.S. National Committee of ICOMOS expresses outrage at the systematic destruction of iconic components of Iraq’s rich and diverse heritage. Over the past several months we have witnessed the systematic destruction of iconic artifacts and archeological sites in Iraq - including stunning footage yesterday of the demolition of statues from Hatra, a UNESCO World Heritage site and of unique, irreplaceable artifacts in the Mosul Museum. This is also our common heritage and this wanton destruction must end immediately.
