The Winfield Scott Wellington collection consists of project photographs and drawings, spanning the years 1930-1971. The majority
of the drawings and photographs reflect Wellington's interest in residential design. The collection also includes drawings
relating to exhibit designs for Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and Wellington's involvement at University of California
Berkeley, including student projects from a Decorative Arts course.
Winfield Scott Wellington (1897-1979) was born in Houston, Texas in 1897. He received his primary and secondary education
in New Orleans completing his first two years of undergraduate education at Tulane University, then attending the Georgia
School of Technology for one year. In 1918 Wellington began studying architecture at UC Berkeley; receiving a Master of Arts
degree in 1922, and a Graduate in Architecture degree in 1923. His graduate thesis reflected his belief in the importance
of self-expression through design, and his love of objects in the personal environment.
