30 Days of Amsterdam Gable Stones: Fred Thomas

Fredericus Franciscus Xaverius Marie Dieudonné Thomas was born in Amsterdam in 1906 and lived there at Prinsengracht 505, where a special plaque commemorates him. Fred Thomas was a journalist and writer and had been working as a journalist at the De Tijd newspaper since 1929. He was particularly interested in the fate of the residents around the closed Zuiderzee and for many years he was secretary of the National Committee for the Conservation of the Zuiderzee and chairman of the Red Volendam foundation.
