Biographical/Historical note

Carleton Monroe Winslow Sr. was born in Maine on December 12, 1876. He studied architecture at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, studying in the Atelier Pascal and in the Atelier Stelier Chiffot Greres. Just out of school, Winslow secured a job with Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson in New York. He was promoted within the firm in 1911 as the supervising architect of the Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, a project on which he worked for four years. Once in San Diego, Winslow decided to stay and opened an office in 1915, when he received his state license to practice. In 1917, Winslow moved to Los Angeles to work with Goodhue on the design of the Los Angeles Public Library headquarters, which he completed after Goodhue’s death in 1924. In 1918, Winslow opened up a second office in Santa Barbara where he designed Cottage Hospital and worked with Floyd E. Brewster on the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Other noteworthy commissions that Winslow received in Santa Barbara include: the Bliss, Billings, and Wilder residences. In Santa Barbara, Winslow also worked with Edward Fisher Brown on Small House Designs published by the Community Arts Association. Throughout his career Winslow was best known for the churches his designed including: Community Presbyterian Church in Beverly Hills, the First Baptist Church in Pasadena, and Mary Star of the Sea Church in La Jolla, California. Carleton Monroe Winslow died in Los Angeles on October 16, 1946.
