  • Endowed by Charles E. Peterson, FAIA (b.1906), his colleagues, and his friends; it is administered by The Athenaeum of Philadelphia exclusively for charitable and educational purposes which reflect Mr. Peterson's lifelong dedication to the study, recording, and preservation of early American architecture and building technology and the teaching of conservation skills in American schools of architecture.
