Field Mourns Loss of Jane S. Long

The cultural community mourns the loss of Jane S. Long, long-time
champion of emergency preparedness and response at Heritage
Preservation and, most recently, the National Archives and Records
Administration. Jane passed away in Arlington, VA, on July 25 from
cancer. Thanks to her vision and dedication, today's cultural
institutions are better prepared to face disasters and respond to
them when they occur. Before joining the National Archives in 2011,
she was Vice President of Emergency Programs for Heritage
Preservation and founding director of the Heritage Emergency
National Task Force. Jane created and provided leadership for
numerous Task Force initiatives, including the Emergency Response
and Salvage Wheel and Alliance for Response. Jane was co-author of
Caring for Your Family Treasures and served in the 1990s as project
director for the President's Committee on the Arts and the

Her devoted husband, Richard W. Long, has honored Heritage
Preservation by requesting the establishment of the Jane S. Long
Memorial Fund for Emergency Programs to honor the life she lived
with purpose and commitment. He is joined in this by their son,
Christopher, his wife, Lisa, and their children, Marissa and Alex.
Contributions will be used to fund Heritage Preservation's emergency
preparedness and response initiatives, which Jane embraced and
advanced so passionately.

Donations may be made to the Jane S. Long Memorial Fund for
Emergency Programs, Heritage Preservation, 1012 14th Street, NW,
Suite 1200, Washington DC 20005. For a full tribute to Jane, please
