1. From Robert E. Stipe, “Why Preserve?,” Preservation News (July 1972). Interestingly, the closing paragraphs were severely criticized by a number of my colleagues, who saw in them “a radical idea,” “way ahead of its time,” that “might drag preservation into the controversial field of urban planning.” However, some of these words later found their way into Justice Brennan's majority opinion in Penn Central Transportation Co. et al. v. New York City Co. et al. and were widely seen as reinforcing the philosophical underpinnings of the majority opinion. See Chapter 5.
