The Warwick Historic Cemeteries Commission was established by the Warwick City Council in 1987. It’s purpose is to create an inventory of historical cemeteries within the city; formulate and develop plans and programs to restore, rehabilitate and maintain historical cemeteries; recommend to the mayor and city council such action as may be necessary to implement such plans and programs; and investigate sources of funds, including fundraising, grants and development of both corporate and individual sponsors, and all other legitimate and related activities.

Pegee Malcolm joined the Warwick Historic Cemeteries Commission in 2004 and became Chair in 2006.
