son of Jill and David Tracey of Manchester, has become the Senior Architect
on the constructions team for the National Park Service, White House Liason

architectural expertise necessary to program, plan, design and perform
research on the construction, alteration, repair and rehabilitation of
projects for the White House and grounds, the Ellipse to the south of
the White House and Lafayette Park to the north. He graduated from West
Delaware High School in Manchester in 1981, received his Bachelor of Architecture
from Iowa State University in Ames, IA in l986 and his Master's Degree
in Historic Preservation from Goucher College in 1997. Prior to going

and owned his own firm in Maine. During this time he was project manager
of the restoration of the Portland Observatory, Portland, ME,
and received a national award from the National Historic Trust in 2001.
2001, the McGee-Brick School Foundation has been very privileged to have
his expertise donated in the restoration of this one-room school in Coffin's
Grove Township. This important site is unique as one of very few brick
one-room schools left standing in Iowa and was admitted to the National
List of Historic Places in 1999. Tobin has aided in each step of restoration,
carefully guiding it along proper guidelines set by the National List
of Historic Places, for which the foundation is so grateful. Thank you
so much Tobin Tracey!
