On Sunday, July 26, family, friends and colleagues gathered for a celebratory luncheon at Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home, to honor Susanne Rappaport posthumously and Jane Beck.The award is given annually to Vermonters who have made extraordinary contributions in the areas of land conservation and/or historic preservation.
Paul Bruhn, Executive Director of The Preservation Trust of Vermont, notes that, “Without Jane’s vision, hard work and perseverance, the Vermont Folklife Center would not have happened.” She has been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including: The Governor’s Extraordinary Vermonter Award (1990); The American Folklore Society’s Benjamin Botkin Award (1996); and in 2004, the Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.a great beacon of light and hope to millions of Negro slaves, who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice.” It then was, and now is, widely known that Lincoln hated slavery from the time he began to form his own thoughts as a young man and it was Lincoln who brought about the end of slavery.Yet he also long thought blacks to be inherently inferior to whites.Their efforts have enabled future generations to learn about, experience and interact with their Green Mountain State heritage.During her lifetime the preservation work of West Pawlet resident Susanne Rappaport focused mainly on her own small town and the quarries of the Slate Valley, while folklorist Jane Beck’s efforts have taken her to virtually every corner of the state. These women can best be described as tireless researchers, collectors and preservers of Vermont’s past, clearly fitting the profile of past Hildene Award honorees as “Vermonters who have made extraordinary contributions in the areas of land conservation and/or historic preservation.“ Vermont’s first and longest serving folklorist, Jane Beck, is Director Emeritus of the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury.
