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.
It is with deep sadness that US/ICOMOS shares the news of the passing of Bonita (Bonnie) Mueller. Bonnie was an accomplished architect and a strong advocate for international culture heritage exchange. She was a valued member of the US National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites and participated actively in its work. In November, 2014 Bonnie was among more than 50 Americans who made the trip to Florence, Italy for the 17th ICOMOS General Assembly, a once-every-three-years gathering of nearly 2000 heritage professionals from over 100 countries.

US /ICOMOS Responds to the terrorist attacks against the Mosul Museum with outrage and a call for action!
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.
US/ICOMOS expects to support a number of internships overseas and within the United States in the historic preservation and cultural heritage fields during the course of 2015. This program provides unparalleled opportunities for preservationists early in their careers to gain hands-on experience in a country other than their own.
