Edward Durell Stone was an
internationally known architect who was active from the 1920s through the 1960s. At
the suggestion of Thomas D. Church, Arthur Hanisch, owner and president of the
Stuart Pharmaceutical Company, hired Stone to design its new headquarters in
Pasadena, California. The material in this collection depicts the Stuart building
from concept to completion primarily through photographs, drawings and published
articles. Ludwig Lauerhass, Jr., the vice president of Stuart at the time, collected
publicity related to Stone and the Stuart building. In addition, there are sketches
and plans for Lauerhass' personal residence in Altadena which was never built.
