Donald C. Stone and the American Public Works Association
An article by EPD Program Directors Howard Rosen, PhD, Program Director, and Stephen T. Pudloski, PE, was published in the American Public Works Association Reporter. The article profiles Donald C. Stone and his dedication to the American Public Works Association.
In 1935, two public works organizations each independently asked Donald C. Stone to become their Executive Director. Stone was already by then highly respected on a national and international level, having led successful public works projects and consulting on public works management. Stone agreed to serve, only if these organizations would agree to merge. Working part-time as the Interim Executive Director, Stone introduced initiatives to increase membership, develop programs, and generate resources. By the time the American Public Works Association (APWA) was officially launched in 1937, Stone had built a solid foundation of resources that allowed the organization to flourish.
