CH Historical Society has new president
The Cleveland Heights Historical Society (CHHS) Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Ken Goldberg as the organization's new president.
A trustee since 1996, Goldberg serves on the Cleveland Heights Landmark Commission and spent many years as a member of the Cleveland Heights Improvement Awards Committee. He also is a former president of the Western Reserve Architectural Historians and was principal editor of AIA/Cleveland's Guide to Cleveland Architecture, 2nd edition. Many Heights residents are familiar with his articles, lectures, architectural walking tours, preservation consulting, and architectural color consulting. Goldberg holds an M.A. in art history from Binghamton University and an M.L.S. from Syracuse University.
Working with Michael Rotman, CHHS' new executive director, Goldberg hopes to strengthen the organization's core programs: producing "View from the Overlook," a publication featuring articles about local history; CHHS' website (www.chhistory.org) and related new blog; the organization's new Facebook page; and local history presentations; as well as fostering community outreach and cooperation with other historical organizations.
Michael Rotman is the executive director of Cleveland Heights Historical Society.
