Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"This book fills a large gap in the design history of Northern California by deftly and vividly tracing the life and career of classically trained architect John Galen Howard, who, more than any other individual, helped shape the early twentieth-century character of the U. C. Berkeley campus. It's a story of Beaux-Arts artistry meeting Bay Area informality to produce an early expression of environmental design."--Daniel P. Gregory, Senior Editor, Sunset Magazine

"I had falsely believed the myth that the original Berkeley campus was the 'Bènard plan' resulting from the Phoebe Apperson Hearst competition of 1899. Sally Woodbridge shows me how wrong I was. The actual plan was that of John Galen Howard. He was hired to carry out the Bènard plan but thought it to be 'utterly impractical.' So he went to work in his more practical way as the campus of today so well demonstrates. With great care and a feeling of love for the subject, Woodbridge sets forth this intriguing real story from which I have learned so much about a campus that I also love so much."--Clark Kerr, President Emeritus, University of California

Format: Hardcover
This book is the best source of inofrmation I've found on John Galen Howard. It was a great help in my research realted to a house he designed in Georgia, especially the chapters on his early years before moving to California.
