Tom Bayley has been a steady friend and staunch advocate of the San Juan Preservation Trust from the very beginning. He and his two brothers, Douglas and Frank, were named in SJPT’s original Articles of Incorporation as the first trustees in 1979. He served as the organization’s first treasurer until stepping down a few years later. He rejoined the Board in 2012 and served until his (final?) retirement in 2019.

At SJPT’s 40th Annual Meeting, he was inducted into a new, honorary role as Founder Emeritus. Watch the video of Executive Director Angela Anderson’s presentation:
