Richard A. Collins,Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation
For the last five years Richard A. Collins has been the President of the Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation, the volunteer organization that creates the museum exhibits and demonstrates living history days at Presidio San Agustin del Tucson, in downtown Tucson AZ.
During that time Rick has enlivened this small group of volunteers to bring the Presidio to life, expanding their activities and increasing their ranks to include over a dozen soldiers in the garrison ranks and about 20 civilian interpreters that share in the fun of living history the second Saturday of each month.
Rick oversees the children’s program, a school field trip called “Friday at the Fort�.
Rick has encouraged volunteers to continue to participate in this program, leading by example by participating in all of them as the Fort Commander or one of the “Soldados de Cuera� for the day.
Rick has single-handedly built exhibits in the small museum room. Exhibits such as “Symbols of our Mexican Pastâ€� and “A Bite to Eat â€" foods of the Spanish Colonial Southwestâ€� have been designed, built and coordinated by Rick. With the help of generous donations, Rick has been able to showcase artifacts relevant to the Spanish Colonial time period for which the Presidio emphasizes.
As a volunteer for the organization itself, Rick has put in countless hours of organizing, negotiating with, overseeing, coordinating, managing, fixing and building the Presidio, its volunteers and the city employees with whom the Trust works in partnership. He finds time to docent at the Presidio once a week and participates in the living history demonstration days as well as leading numerous tours on a monthly basis.
Rick’s enthusiasm and passion for history, especially Tucson’s beginnings, is contagious. He brings life to the subject in the lectures he gives, the docent tours he leads and during living history demonstrations. When his eyes light up at a question asked by the public, you can be guaranteed an insightful explanation with fascinating tidbits of information will follow.
