The preservation of historic sites and of vintage architecture has become a major focus for many in the contemporary period. Different theorists have addressed this issue as they have also sought to motivate the movement for the preservation of the worthy and the important. This paper examines how two such theorists with somewhat different approaches to the subject are William Sumner Appleton and Norman Morrison Isham, both of whom left writings on the subject as well as took action in furtherance of their goals and their idea of the need for preservation.
