      Architects Who Built Southern California with Antonio Gonzalez

      Note: Your ticket includes - and is the same price as - the book!   The Last Bookstore is pleased to present author Antonio Gonzalez and his new book Architects Who Built Southern California. In the early 1900s, the population of Southern California exploded, and the cities grew at such a rapid pace that builders could hardly keep up. Among those who settled in the area were ten architects looking to make their mark on the world. Claud Beelman, a man who never received a college degree, would go on to design the Elks Lodge in Los Angeles. Albert C. Martin, architect of Grauman’s Million Dollar Theater, founded a company that is still going strong over a hundred years later, and Julia Morgan, the first woman architect licensed in California, was hired by William Randolph Hearst to design the Examiner Building. Join author Antonio Gonzalez as he tells the stories of the people behind some of Southern California’s most iconic buildings.   The Architects Who Built Southern California is 10 chapters with each chapter devoted to a different architect (or architectural firm) including: Harrison Albright, John Austin, Claud Beelman, Elmer Grey, Hudson & Munsell, A. C. Martin, Meyer & Holler, Julia Morgan, Morgan Walls & Clements and Alfred F. Rosenheim.   Antonio Gonzalez works in an architecture and fine arts library, has an undergraduate degree in journalism from the The University of Iowa and a MLIS from San Jose State University.
