City: Paris, France
Cabrini Cathedral
Comments: FEMA, it is imperative that this remarkable structure be preserved. You must know that Michel Ragon, top authority in France on the history of modern architecture, says that the loss of this building would cause grave prejudice to the history of modern architecture in the United States as well as to the Catholic faith of which it is a symbol. Mr. Ragon is so impassioned in this belief that he is petitioning the President of the Commission for Cultural Possessions of the Church at the Vatican with letters from many supporters throughout Europe. This is not an issue that is local. This is of international consequence and we plead with you to preserve the Cabrini Cathedral on the Lake. Thank you for your attention and consideration.
