Obituary Herb Stovel - Message from Partner organisations

Messages from Partner organisations


Dear Friends and Colleagues
The UNESCO family is mourning the death of our friend Herb Stovel.
Although we knew that he was seriously ill, the news of his passing away has saddened all those who have known him along the years, at ICCROM, at ICOMOS and as a Professor.
His intellectual contribution to the understanding and the practice of heritage management is reflected in the essays and the manuals he published, as well as in the many documents and studies he helped producing, among which the Nara Document on Authenticity stands out.
Through a relentless effort of inquiry, reflection and training, he has contributed to the advancement of the World Heritage Convention in ways that few other professionals have been able to do.
He was a wise and open person, always available to advise and help.
We join all those who loved him in remembering this outstanding figure of heritage professional and this dear friend.
We will miss you, Herb.

Ti sia lieve la terra.

Francesco Bandarin
UNESCO Assistant Director General for Culture
