Hugh has been with the project since 2013 when he joined forces with Steve Debellis in his effort to save the Goldenrod Showboat. His devotion to the Goldenrod and to the vision of Mr. Debellis for the St. Louis riverfront led him to accept the key role as President of the Board upon the passing of Mr. Debellis in mid 2014.
Hugh attended Princeton University AB and graduated from Washington University Law School in 1965. He brings with him many years of experience in law and professional writing and utilizes his knowledge of both to assist the organization in moving forward. His community outreach has been of tremendous help to the organization over the last 5 years in gaining funding as well as public attention and support.
