Susan Buggey
(1941-2015)

Longtime APT member Susan Buggey was a quiet pioneer who understood the broad scope of APT and brought cultural landscapes into focus. In APT, she found colleagues who shared her interests in cultural landscapes, and together they organized the Alliance for Historic Landscape Preservation in 1978. She was the guest editor for the special issues of the Bulletin on landscapes published in 1977, 1979, 1992, and 2000. In 1999, she was inducted into the APT College of Fellows. Her expanding interests in cultural landscapes and international activities brought far-reaching networking connections to APT meetings.

Pendant trente ans, Susan a travaillé en recherche historique, documentant et évaluant les lieux historiques de Parcs Canada. Elle a joué un rôle clé dans le développement du concept de paysage culturel.

Susan became director of Historical Services at Parks Canada and taught at universities in Montreal, Victoria, and Winnipeg. In the early 1990s, she participated in UNESCO's international expert meetings to develop guidelines for including cultural landscapes on the World Heritage List. She was also a great friend to the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts and it was through her generous gift to the school that it was able to create the Susan Buggey Cultural Landscapes Fellowship.
