To Whom It May Concern,

Mr. David Driapsa exhibited the highest degree of professionalism while completing the Smokey Hollow Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS).  His diligent, independent style provided me the opportunity to focus on other tasks knowing that he would meet deadlines and deliver a thorough, quality product.  Most notable, was his ability to quickly establish mutual respect and trust with former Smokey Hollow community members during the documentation of the segregated African American community that was destroyed in the 1960s.

His prior experience in the development and submission of a HALS aided to the successful incorporation of our document in the United States Library of Congress.  There was very little need for me to communicate with the National Park Service, and from a client perspective that was a relief.

We are very proud of the Smokey Hollow HALS, and are constructing a permanent exhibit which includes the measured drawings produced by Mr. Driapsa in our commemoration to the former community.
