Description
The Ernest Coxhead collection consists of photographs and drawings of residences designed by Coxhead and Coxhead, photographs of the A.E.F. School of Architecture in LeMans (circa 1919), and miscellaneous clippings of images and poetry. Coxhead's personal papers, professional papers, and a few project photos were donted to the archives in 1983, but the majority of project-related records were acquired separately by various donors.
Background
Ernest Albert Coxhead was born in Eastbourne, England in 1863. He received his architectural training at the Royal Academy and Architectural Association in London. In 1886, Coxhead moved with his brother Almeric to Los Angeles, where the two began their archtitecture practice. Four years later they moved to San Francisco, where they remained until retirement.
