|CHICAGO – CTBUH headquarters was proud to welcome the family of Council founder Lynn S. Beedle to their Monroe Building offices on Thursday, May 25. Lynn’s son David, his wife Laura, and their son Max stopped by on the last leg of a family road trip to pay a visit to the organization that was originally founded by Beedle at Lehigh University in 1969.|

CTBUH Executive Director Antony Wood greeted them in the conference room, where they discussed the rapid growth of the organization over the last decade. Wood displayed many of the publications that the Council has published in recent years, and the Beedle family was impressed with the positive direction the Council has taken, commenting on the quality of office space and the size of the organization, which has grown from a few people working with Lynn in his Lehigh office to a worldwide organization of 32 full-time equivalent staff.
The Beedle family then shared coffee and donuts with the HQ staff, reminiscing on how the organization has changed over the years. There was also perhaps no better opportunity to review the CTBUH Historical Archives, which tracks important moments and media coverage of the Council dating back to its founding. A photo opportunity with the Beedle family and the HQ staff (seen below) capped off the event, and will no doubt be the latest entry into the archives.
