Biography

William Francis Cody, Fellow, American Institute of Architects (1916-1978) was an influential Desert Modern architect who practiced in Palm Springs at the peak of the Modernist movement. Between 1946 and 1973, Cody maintained a diverse practice in California's Coachella Valley, designing country clubs, residences, hotels, library, and church projects in the local communities of Palm Springs, Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, and in southern California, Arizona, Mexico, and Cuba.
Cody was born on 19 June 1916 in Dayton, Ohio, to William F. Cody, Sr., who owned a haberdashery and Anna Elizabeth Shadle, an interior designer. Cody and his brother John were both influenced by their mother's passion for art and architecture.
By 1930, the Codys had relocated to Los Angeles. While attending Beverly Hills High School, Cody designed and built stage sets for school plays with the son of Warner Bros. founder Jack L. Warner. Cody graduated from high school in April 1934 and began work the following year for architects Heath Warton and Asa Hudson while attending Santa Monica Junior College, graduating in 1939.
In 1940, Cody enrolled in the College of Architecture and Fine Arts at the University of Southern California, earning a Bachelor's degree in Architecture in 1942. At University of Southern California Cody was exposed to the Bauhaus style of art, architecture, and interior design, which emphasized a minimalist Modernism that would come to define Cody's own work. Another influence during this time was Cody's work for Cliff May, a leading southern California licensed building designer. According to a résumé found in the collection and his Fellow, American Institute of Architects nomination, Cody worked in 1944 on May's influential Pace-Setter House, a modernized, low-cost California ranch house design.
That same year, Cody married Winifred Smith, with whom he had three daughters: Diane Louise (b. 1944), Winifred Lynne (b. 1948), and Catherine Louise (b. 1954).
In 1943, he worked for an Oakland engineering firm on a Kaiser steel plant in Fontana, California. That same year, he also worked for the San Francisco firm of Blanchard, Maher and Ward on Navy installations on Treasure Island. The following year, he worked for Marsh, Smith and Powell in Los Angeles, primarily on National Design Award-winning elementary and high school buildings in California and Arizona.
In March of 1946, Cody was licensed to practice architecture in California and secured his Arizona license the following month. In 1948, he applied for membership in the American Institute of Architects, listing his office location on Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles.
In 1945, Cody was retained to alter the Desert Inn, his first commission in Palm Springs. In 1947 he completed the Del Marcos Hotel, his first independent commission, which was recognized by the American Institute of Architects Southern California Chapter with an honorable mention.
Post-World War II Palm Springs was becoming a fashionable weekend and winter retreat for the rich and famous, and Cody's career flourished along with the city. He moved his practice and his family to Palm Springs. In 1950, he was retained to lead the successful conversion of the Thunderbird Dude Ranch into the Thunderbird Country Club, which led to commissions to design or alter clubhouses, recreational facilities, and residential developments at Eldorado Country Club (with Ernest J. Kump), Tamarisk Country Club, the Racquet Club, and the Tennis Club. In 1960, he began almost a decade of work altering and expanding the Palm Springs Spa Hotel.
Cody's specialization in country club clubhouses with related residential developments led to additional commissions in California, Arizona, Texas, Cuba, and Mexico. His residential projects emphasized key elements of Modernism: simplicity of form, natural light, and large windows offering a seamless connection between residential interiors and the outdoors.
A member of American Institute of Architects since 1948, Cody was elevated to Fellowship in the American Institute of Architects in 1965, with the following projects cited on his nomination as Achievements in Architectural Design:

Abernathy Residence Palm Springs, CA 1963
Shamel Residence Palm Desert, CA 1963
Western Savings & Loan Phoenix, AZ 1964
Cody also worked extensively with Robert P. McCulloch, an industrialist who parlayed his racing-engine manufacturing fortune into diverse business interests, including oil and gas exploration, electronics, and land and real estate development. When McCulloch founded Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Cody designed, altered and added to McCulloch Corporation chain saw plants there. For McCulloch Properties, Inc., Cody designed Arizona residential developments in Lake Havasu City and Fountain Hills in Scottsdale, and an Eldorado tract in Indian Wells, California. He also designed a McCulloch corporate complex near LAX and alterations and an addition to a house for McCulloch and his wife at Thunderbird Country Club in 1972.
Cody's last notable commissions were located in Palm Springs: St. Theresa Catholic Church and Convent (1966-68) and buildings for the Palm Springs Planning Collaborative, including the Palm Springs Public Library (1973) in the Brutalist style. A stroke then limited his career until his death on 29 August 1978 in Palm Springs.

Scope and Content Note

The William F. Cody Papers 2 (MS 163) contains personal papers, student work, awards, architectural drawings and plans, office records, marketing and public relations materials, presentation drawings, photographs, correspondence, and project files from the architect's estate, acquired through purchase from his daughter in 2008-09.
At the time that Cody closed his office, family members split the records and drawings of the practice and stored them in various locations. Researchers are strongly advised to consult the guide to the first, separate, and substantial gift of Cody drawings and papers given to Cal Poly in 1984 (William F. Cody Papers, Fellow, American Institute of Architects, MS 007).
The collection is divided into five series:
1. Personal Papers, 1918-1980, including childhood sketches, biographical information, extensive pre-collegiate and University of Southern California student work, and financial records;
2. Professional Papers, 1946-1979, including certifications; awards, plaques and certificates; and scrapbooks/tearsheets;
3. Office Records, 1944-1976, including appointment books, correspondence with clients and colleagues, extensive project portfolios, presentation photographs, and presentation drawings
4. Project Records, 1943-1973, including files, photographs, plans and drawings on residential, recreational, and commercial commissions
5. McCulloch Project Records, 1967-1972, including extensive project plans for industrialist Robert P. McCulloch and his related companies.
The collection is housed in 19 flat file drawers and 41 Hollinger containers and 11 tubes. The most significant portions of the collection — project records for wide variety of Cody commissions in the Coachella Valley, Arizona, and Havana — are located in Series 4. The collection is also rich in Cody's student work.
Most of the plans in the collection are Ozalids, a monochromatic copying process producing diazo prints, common to the mid-twentieth century. Many of the Ozalids and oversized plans are in poor condition. Some drawings, primarily preliminary sketches or mechanical drawings produced in consultation, have been left in project files, when relocation would have deterred research. Job numbers from Cody's practice are given, when known, but some errors in duplicate numbering have been found. With the exception of the presentation photographs in Series 3.D. and the project portfolios, there are few images in the collection.
Some project names changed before completion; drawings are located under the project's as-built name, when known. Town and city names and boundaries may also have changed; drawings are located under the current name of the town or city.
Where possible, the provenance, or original organization, of the papers has been preserved. However, in order to simplify access to the collection for researchers, some materials in specific formats and subject areas were reorganized and refoldered to more accurately reflect their contents.

The National Endowment for the Humanities has generously funded the arrangement and description of this collection, along with matching funds from California Polytechnic State University.
