September 17, 1997

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore gave H. Grant Hathaway, a NationsBank director, a lifetime achievement award for his leadership in helping to create the downtown management district and programs to improve safety and cleanliness in the area.

Hathaway was one of eight individuals and companies to receive annual awards yesterday from the Partnership for finding a solution to a downtown problem or improving the quality of life there.

"We look for people who have made very significant contributions to downtown Baltimore usually personally or as a chief executive of a company," said Laurie Schwartz, president of the Partnership.

For instance, Connie Caplan, president of the Time Group, was recognized for her work in the restoration of the Washington Monument and in bringing together a number of cultural institutions in the area to form the Mount Vernon Cultural District.

Other awards went to Miller Corporate Real Estate, Nouveau Contemporary Goods, Mercy Medical Center, Edie Brown, C. William Struever and Gray, Kirk Vansant.
