Bosco­Milligan Foundation Welcomes New Executive Director

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Board of Directors of the Bosco-­Milligan Foundation is pleased to  announce the appointment of Stephanie Whitlock as the new Executive Director of the  organization.  An architectural historian and experienced non­profit leader, Whitlock comes to Portland from Chicago, where she most recently worked at the Graham Foundation for Advanced  Studies in the Fine Arts, a prominent international funder and public programming institution in  the field of architecture.    

At the Graham Foundation, Whitlock, who holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago, led the foundation’s grantmaking program and served as senior leadership of the  organization.  In her fifteen years at the Graham Foundation, she also held the post of director of special programs and organized the foundation’s public exhibitions, talks, design competitions, and other programs about architecture and the built environment, and she served as interim director. Before joining the Graham Foundation, she was a lecturer in history at the University of Chicago. Whitlock has also worked in academic publishing and in communications in the non­profit sector.    

Whitlock was selected for the executive director position after an extensive nationwide search.  She succeeds founding director Cathy Galbraith, who retired earlier this year after twenty-­five  years of service.   

The mission of the Bosco­-Milligan Foundation, founded in 1987, is to encourage the preservation  and re­use of historically and architecturally significant buildings in Portland. The foundation operates the Architectural Heritage Center, located in the historic West Block’s Building, and serves as a catalyst for preservation efforts through its public programs and exhibitions of  architectural significance, docent ­led walking tours, advocacy at the state and local levels, and  fundraising for preservation projects. Today it is one of Oregon’s most active and influential non­profit historic preservation organizations.    

“As the Portland region undergoes dramatic change in its urban landscape, the work of the Bosco­-Milligan Foundation and the Architectural Heritage Center becomes all the more critical,” said Fred Leeson, Board President. “Stephanie Whitlock has the impressive credentials in collaborative management, public communications, and educational programming in architecture to help us to continue to expand relationships with governmental, business, and architectural communities in order to increase public awareness of Portland’s unique architectural and cultural heritage.”     Leeson also said that Whitlock will work to promote the foundation’s extensive and original  collection of over 16,000 architectural artifacts, most of which were collected by the foundation’s benefactors, Jerry Bosco and Ben Milligan between the 1950s and 1980s.    

“The Bosco-­Milligan Foundation has such an interesting legacy that can be traced back to the  work of two men who salvaged innumerable architectural artifacts and pieces of Portland history that would otherwise have been demolished,” Whitlock said. “I look forward to continuing to build on this history and work in order to increase public knowledge of and dialogue about Portland’s significant and distinctive architecture.”
