Kathryn Stone was an educator and Virginia state legislator, residing in Arlington, VA. She served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1954 to 1966, the first woman to be elected to the Virginia legislature. She was a fierce proponent of desegregation in the public schools and played an important role in the creation of the Virginia community college system. Stone also helped establish the first regional detention home for juveniles in the state.

Stone was born in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and attended Cornell College and the University of Iowa. She received a master's degree in American history from the University of Iowa and subsequently taught school in Iowa, Michigan, and Louisiana. She married Harold Stone in 1936. She was involved with the League of Women Voters and the Commission on Human Resources of the Washington Center for Metropolitan studies. Kathryn Stone died on May 18, 1995.

Kathryn H. Stone was the director of the Program on Human Resources and of the Reston Study from 1963 to 1968. In 1969, she was the executive vice chairman of the Commission on Human Resources, a constituent agency of the Washington Center for Metropolitan Studies (WCMS), and also senior associate of WCMS. Robert E. Simon, Jr., conceived the idea of Reston, and planning and financing were his specialties during its development.

Michael Vincent DiSalle, the ex-governor of Ohio, was hired by Simon as president and chief executive officer of the Reston operation in the spring of 1963, where he remained until his resignation some eight months later. DiSalle was given responsibility for administration and execution within the project.

Carol Lubin operated both in Reston and New York, thus being somewhat of a liaison officer with Simon (whose family corporations were based in New York) in addition to her formally allotted duties in the field of planning for Reston's community activities and community relations. She handled relations with churches, the school board, county libraries, parks, recreation areas, and health departments. She was one of Simon's first appointments and took part in early discussions of Reston's social proposals.
