Naomi G. Kinard, 74, historic preservationist

Naomi G. Kinard, an historic preservationist, died of cancer Wednesday at her Annapolis home. She was 74.

She served three terms on the Annapolis Historic District Commission and fought to keep the historic flavor of the state capital.

"She was a strict preservationist who followed the rules exactly," said her son, Winston Campbell Kinard, of Annapolis. "She would not put up with people who wanted to run roughshod through the rules her commission had laid out."

Moving to Annapolis in 1963, she joined Historic Annapolis, where she was a guide, education committee chairwoman and board member. She helped select furniture for the William Paca House.

Born in New Cumberland, W.Va., Naomi Garlick was a graduate of Chatham College in Pittsburgh, attended law school at the University of North Carolina and American University and received a master's degree in history from the University of North Carolina. She also earned a certificate in history of art and architecture from the Smithsonian Institution.

She was a member of the Anne Arundel County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals board, the Caritas Society of St. John's College and the Republican Women's Club. She was a member of St. Anne's Episcopal Church, where she was a lay reader.

Services are private.

In addition to her son, she is survived by her husband of 42 years, Dr. Roy F. Kinard of Annapolis.
