Julia Morgan

Julia Morgan Collection, 1893-1980.

The Julia Morgan Collection spans the years 1893-1980, (bulk 1893-1940). It is important as a record of California design, and as a record of the education and work of one of the earliest female architects in the nation. The records document Morgan's education at University of California Berkeley and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, as well as her architectural projects. The collection contains a limited amount of personal papers. Similarly there is little project correspondence; projects are documented mainly through photographs and drawings.

Below are links to the collection, which also has many drawings of Hearst Castle and Wyntoon. To see the entire collection, with thumbnails of all images and other image resolution options, you may go directly to the collection at this link. The University appears be in the process of adding more images as time permits.All images courtesy of the Julia Morgan Collection, (1959-2), Environmental Design Archives.
