Charles Emil Peterson is widely considered to be a seminal figure in professionalizing the practice of historic preservation in the United States. He is referred to as the “founding father” of the professional advocation of historic preservation, the “godfather of preservation," and an “extraordinary preservationist" who made important contributions to the knowledge of early American building practices, helped create the profession of the preservation architect, and passionately advocated for the retention and restoration of the American built heritage. According to Jacques Dalibard, a professor at McGill School of Architecture, “with James Marston Fitch, I cannot think of two people who had more influence on historic preservation in North America.”
