Reid was a not only a leader, but as a friend he was a wonderful and kind person always ready to help you in any difficulty.

My hope is that this remembrance of Reid Williamson finds its way to his family.

Reid influenced and inspired me to be an active member of the historic preservation community. This led directly to my wife and me acquiring a farm in Rush County, Indiana, having it listed on the National Register of Historic Places and rehabilitating its 1828 farmhouse, the barns, corn crib and other outbuildings.

I had the privilege of working with Reid on several initiatives he led for Historic Landmarks of Indiana, now Indiana Landmarks. He was smart, strategic and long-term in his thinking and tireless. He saw importance and potential where others saw only risk and decay.

Reid was recognized in Indiana and nationally for this work in taking Historic Landmarks from a small office in Indianapolis to a vibrant, statewide organization. Those awards are well documented and undoubtedly known to you. It's Reid's uncommon understanding of all factors at play -- political, personal, economic, architectural and legal -- that made him such a force.

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope this remembrance and many others that you have or will receive will provide the stories and insights of your father and grandfather that will make you secure in the knowledge that he was a good and true man and that his life made a significant difference in the lives of many, many people and in the culture and built environment of the state of Indiana.

We are deeply sadden to learn of the passing of Reid. He was a good friend, support and preservation colleague. When we came to Indianapolis in 1975, Reid enlisted us in the local preservation movement efforts and facilitated the acquisition and restoration of our 1870s carpenter gothic home in Lockerbie Square. He fully engaged us in Landmarks Foundation of Indiana over the years and was always there to support whatever preservation efforts we wanted to pursue. His contribution to the Historic Preservation movement both here in Indiana as well as across the nation are immeasurable. His work saved and restored hundreds of structures, developed preservation organizations and demonstrated leadership, and educated the public about the value of preservation. We are thankful for having Reid in our lives. We loved that wonderful Connecticut Yankee presence and bearing, the rich deep resonating voice and his diplomacy. We will sincerely miss him and will keep his family in our prayers.
