Elizabeth Del Tufo
Historian and President, The Newark Preservation and Landmarks Committee
After the dust began to settle from the riots of the 1960s, Liz acquired a deep love for the richness and resilience of Newark. In the midst of abandonment, arson, destruction and vandalism, she led the effort to save Newark’s architectural heritage by the founding of The Newark Preservation and Landmarks Committee in 1974.
