Roosevelt's Second Act
Richard Moe (born 1936) is an American lawyer from Duluth, Minnesota. Following his graduation from Williams College and the University of Minnesota Law School, Moe went on to a distinguished career in government, law, and historic preservation. He served as Chief of Staff for Vice President of the United States Walter Mondale, was a partner at the law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell, and served as President of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Moe led the National Trust for Historic Preservation for over sixteen years (1993-2009), and succeeded at expanding its budget despite funding reductions from Congress. He battled Tom DeLay and the Disney Corporation, among others, in his quest to save America's leading historical sites, such as Manassas battlefield. Moe also guided the trust in its major effort to preserve historic structures and sites in New Orleans, Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
In 2007 Moe was awarded the Vincent Scully Prize by the National Building Museum in recognition of his contributions to the built environment. That same year he received the Theodore Roosevelt-Woodrow Wilson Award from the American Historical Association.
Moe is married and has two children. He lives in Washington, D.C.
