Abstract:
Hurricane Isabel did more than flood and destroy homes in the Down East section of North Carolina in 2003. It wreaked havoc upon family heirlooms and community treasures, including family Bibles, photo albums, musical instruments, and ancient quilts. While volunteers from across the state responded to the community needs of food, water and shelter, Vogel called in a team of conservators from the National Park Service Harpers Ferry Center Conservation Lab to evaluate, restore, and repair family treasures. Vogel received the award for “his leadership and example in the rescue of artifacts of Down East culture in the aftermath of Hurricane Isabel, and for his dedication to preserving, appreciating, and celebrating the human accomplishments of our traditional maritime communities.”
