Description
The Frederic Lyman papers document the career of this southern California architect, who although little known today, was once deemed one of the most talented architects of his generation. Composed of over 1800 drawings and two models, as well as photographs, the archive records Lyman's architectural designs and provides limited glimpses of his other passions of architectural education and social and environmental activism.
Background
Frederic Pomeroy Lyman III was born June 9, 1927 in Kansas City, Missouri. His father, who died suddenly in August 1933, was an architect specializing in French Provincial style residential work, and Lyman remembered being fascinated as a child by the drawings on his father's drafting table. After the death of his father, the family moved to Vancouver, Canada and then to Seattle in 1940.
