He works with local governments in many parts of the United States, helping them to develop or strengthen programs to protect and improve landmark buildings and historic districts. His work has taken him to almost all of the 50 states, including current assignments in Oklahoma, South Dakota, Mississippi and New Mexico. Before coming to the Trust, Mr. Gilbert was executive director of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The preservation of Grand Central and the constitutionality of historic preservation were upheld in a major U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1978 (Penn Central Transportation Co. v. City of New York, 438 U.S. 104). He is a lawyer and a member of the District of Columbia bar. Mr. Gilbert is one of four grandchildren of Justice Louis Brandeis.
