Gov. Gray Davis Appoints Cal Poly Pomona Assistant Professor To State Historical Resources Commission

Cal Poly Pomona assistant professor of architecture Lauren Bricker has been appointed to the California Historical Resources Commission (HRC) by Governor Gray Davis.

A resident of Redlands, Bricker joined Cal Poly Pomona in 1999 after teaching at the University of Redlands' Whitehead Center for Lifelong Learning and Riverside Community College. She also has a practice as an architectural historian.

"A great deal of thought went into the selection," said HRC executive secretary Knox Mellon. "Governor Davis reaffirmed confidence in the selection when he announced the appointment of the new commissioners."

The HRC holds quarterly meetings at various venues in California to review applications for listing historic properties on the National Register of Historic Places, the California Register of Historical Resources and for designation as a California Registered Historical Landmark and/or a California Point of Historical Interest. The change in venues gives more people a chance to attend the meetings and also ensures that commissioners develop a wider base of knowledge.

Although HRC work requires a great deal of attention, Bricker believes it can only benefit her approach to teaching.

"If I can show that my education is benefiting the public as well as my students, then it is very seemly," she says.
