Keith Gerrard has lived on Shaw Island for 20 years, after living on Lopez Island for 11. Keith served as an attorney with the law firm of Perkins Coie for nearly 47 years, after graduation from Harvard Law School. Keith has devoted much time to serving on boards of a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Shaw Island Library and Historical Society, Shaw Islanders, Inc., and The Museum of Flight, where he is currently a Trustee Emeritus.
Keith remarks, “The San Juan Preservation Trust is essential to the preservation of these islands. I have been in love with the San Juans since I first came up here in the 1960s. The islands are still beautiful, but fragile. They need to be preserved, and this is a deep personal concern of mine.”
