National Register Nomination

Claremont Heritage is pleased to announce that the Claremont home of Doris and Peter Drucker has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Drucker House is significant for its association with the life and work of renowned management guru Peter Drucker. The property has undergone minimal alterations since its occupancy by Peter Drucker and retains all the character defining features from that period. Though the Drucker House was originally constructed more than fifty years ago, it has achieved significance in the last 50 years. The house is associated with Peter Drucker beginning in 1971, when he moved to Claremont to teach management at Claremont Graduate University. The property was associated with Drucker's most productive period, which lasted from 1975 to 1995.
