In 1958, a small group of volunteers, as members of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA)
Historic Building Committee, became alarmed by the destruction of historic landmarks created by the explosion of growth in

would create a citizens board to survey, identify and protect historic sites throughout the city.
