At GHF’s 10th Anniversary Gala in Menlo Park on October 2, 130 attendees got to see the following microdocumentary celebrating Jeff Morgan, GHF’s Founder and Executive Director for 10 years. The video commemorates the extraordinary vision, commitment and energy Jeff brought to founding this unique and dynamic organization.
During his leadership of GHF, Jeff was responsible for global conservation excellence, building a leading international conservancy and improving the lives in communities where GHF sites are located.
GHF 10-Year Anniversary
Over the past decade, we’ve used our holistic approach to heritage preservation, Preservation by Design®, to complete eight projects at heritage sites in the developing world: Lijiang, China; Izborsk, Russia; Wat Phu, Laos; Hampi, India; Çatalhöyük, Turkey; Foguang, China; Kars, Turkey; and My Son, Vietnam.
We couldn’t have completed these projects without the support, expertise, and collaboration of our many project partners, volunteers, and the GHF membership. We are incredibly grateful for your investment in our mission and belief in what we do. Thank you!

Postcard from Libya
Everywhere you look in the Old City of Tripoli are banners and flags of the ‘new Libya’—in fact a flag from the time of the Kingdom. The street markets in the Old City are vibrant, perhaps because the banking system still remains volatile some twenty months after the revolution that overthrew the 42-year long Qaddafi dictatorship.
Libya is a cultural landmark—a country that stands at the crossroads of the Middle East and Africa, inhabited by nomads, merchants and religious pilgrims who have all left their mark, be it in the glorious ruins of Sabrata, Leptis Magna and Shahhat (Cyrene) or in the fierce and unbreakable spirit of the Libyan people today.
This deeply-rooted spirit was numb under Qaddafi’s rule since 1969. On a recent trip to Libya, I met with Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Sedeg Karim, and he vociferously and repeatedly stated that he wanted to give Libyans the chance to appreciate the incredible depth and richness of their history and reconnect with their national heritage.
