Clement, charter trustees honored at HSF gala

Clement, charter trustees honored at gala
Salisbury Mayor Paul B. Woodson presented a key to the city to noted preservationist Edward H. Clement at Historic Salisbury Foundation’s 40th Anniversary Gala Celebration Oct. 6 at the Hambley-Wallace House on South Fulton Street.
Clement is widely recognized as the father of modern-day preservation efforts in Salisbury. He was a leader in founding Historic Salisbury Foundation 40 years ago, and he joined Edward Addison Brown, Joseph John Summerell and Thomas Gardiner Thurston Jr. as charter signatories when the foundation was formed April 12, 1972.
Clement served many years as president of the foundation, and he is recognized nationally in preservation circles. Through the decades, Clement has fought publicly and behind the scenes to save and find adaptable reuses of many of the structures that make up Salisbury’s historic fabric today.
“I think Ed has changed the face of Salisbury over the past 40 years,” Woodson said after the gala.
Clement showed how he was forward-thinking by preserving the past, the mayor said.
Woodson thanked the Wallace family for their extensive rejuvenation of the Hambley-Wallace House and grounds, describing it as one of the more important zhistoric residences in the state.
N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall served as the gala’s keynote speaker.
Besides Clement, others receiving special recognition for their longtime contributions to the foundation were Carolyn Cates Hurley, Mary Goodman and the late Virginia Wallace.
The 1972 charter board also was recognized, including Clement, Summerell, Thurston, James Brawley, Graham Carlton, Edith Clark, Hayden Clement, Ernest Hardin, Louis Harrison, John Knox, Rosalie Mayfield, Mary Messinger, Mary Marshall Murphy Murdoch, John Ramsay, Blanche Robertson, David Setzer, Evelyn Sowers, Doug Tennent, Mary Holt Whittle Woodson and Chester David ZumBrunnen.
Those attending the gala took self-guided tours of the Hambley-Wallace mansion, had a full-course dinner in the gardens and danced to the music of the John Brown Jazz Band.
