Ced Dolder

Ms. Dolder works for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Historic Preservation Division, advising prospective applicants on the technical procedures and regulations for federal and state tax incentive programs for the rehabilitation of historic properties. She previously was an independent historic preservation consultant involved in a broad range of projects throughout the Southeast, consulting with private developers and governmental agencies. Ms. Dolder’s long-term area of special interest in school and while consulting was historic gardens and landscapes and their link to historic preservation. While researching women’s history for a National Register nomination in 2000, she became interested in the Georgia work of early 20th century female landscape architects, spotlighting Savannah’s Clermont Lee. Before her death in 2006, Lee granted an interview to Ms. Dolder which provided an interesting personal edge to her research. Ms. Dolder has since published articles about Clermont Lee in the New Georgia Encyclopedia and Shaping the American Landscape. She received a Masters in Heritage Preservation from Georgia State University in 1996.
