The 75th Anniversary Symposium: Sustaining Greenbelt’s Legacy was held April 27-28 here in Greenbelt, Maryland. The event was well attended with over 200 registrants and an impressive array of scholars, City staffers, residents and activists gave presentations on everything from cooperatives to construction of the Beltway and from religion to recycling. The event provided a forum for important burgeoning dialogues not just about Greenbelt’s history, but also about historic preservation, sustainability, race, age, and sexual orientation. The highlight of the weekend was a keynote address on Saturday afternoon from Dr. Mervyn Miller, “From the British Garden City to Greenbelt and Back to the English New Towns.” Dr. Miller’s fascinating talk explored the flow of ideas and information about garden cities across the Atlantic.
