A summary of the environments, backgrounds, and interests of historical figures (such as Ann Pamela Cunningham and William Sumner Appleton) in historic preservation is provided for historical perspective. Current career development theory is summarized with the main theories described and grouped by type. Based on current career development theory and observations from the historical figures, a questionnaire was developed and implemented. The justification and basis for each of the questions is provided and the results of the questionnaire are included. Finally, based on the questionnaire results, a conclusion and recommendations are provided to bolster historic preservation interest and awareness in people considering the field.
