Acknowledgements This history would not be possible without support from ICPI members and sponsors of the 25th anniversary celebration. I trust this story reflects the energy and entrepreneurial spirit that started ICPI and will continue to energize it into the future. Thanks goes to the 25th Anniversary Special Committee and its co-chairs, Charles Gamarekian and Larry Nicolai. David Streeter would have contributed his humor and wisdom had he not passed a few months prior to writing this. Special thanks go to Hugh Jones, Chris Ross and Lee Martin with help from Don Lampus, David Bender, Max Hoene, Mike Mueller and Harald von Langsdorff. A very big thanks goes to Ed Bryant for taking time to recall the events leading up to the first paver manufacturing plant. Finally, special thanks go to Theodore Liebman, the architect who specified the first installation of concrete pavers on Roosevelt Island, NY. Mr. Bryant and Mr. Liebman were the first to see bigger possibilities with concrete pavers. 3 6 • I C P I C O M M E M O R AT I V E P U B L I C AT I O N
