Dorothy Clark grew up in Boston and has long had a love of and witnessed many changes to its built environment. Dorothy currently works full time as a copy editor at The Boston Globe. She attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Journalism/English and a Master's in American History. A longtime journalist, she is working to fashion a career change, combining her love of architecture and history with her research, writing and editing skills which is what led her to enroll in the Master of Design Studies program in Historic Preservation.
Dorothy intends to forge a brand of activism and communication that promotes preservation as a discipline of public history. As she likes to quip, what's more public than the built environment?
