Come "meet" Julia Morgan at the Montclair Library
Julia Morgan (1872-1957), renowned Bay Area architect of the first half of the 20th century, has become a California icon for her distinctive Craftsman and Mediterranean designs, her social conscience, and her early success in a male-dominated profession.
Miss Morgan visits us with the assistance of Betty Marvin. In everyday life, Betty is a historian and preservation planner with the City of Oakland's Cultural Heritage Survey project, a highly regarded comprehensive citywide inventory of historic buildings and neighborhoods.
Miss Morgan will reminisce about her struggle to become an architect; her colorful clients and associates, including the Hearsts and Bernard Maybeck; and her lifelong involvement with women's philanthropic organizations.
NOTE: This is on a Thursday night. The library will remain open only for the event.
