    Biography

    E. Geoffrey Bangs was a Bay Area architect and a graduate of University of California, Berkeley. He earned his bachelor's degree in 1914 and continued on to obtain his master's the following year. His early career was spent working in the office of John Galen Howard. Bangs designed many public buildings and large-scale public housing projects in Northern California. His projects included UC Berkeley's Lewis Hall, the Contra Costa Hall of Records, and the courthouses for Shasta and Butte counties. He died in 1977.

    Scope and Contents Note

    The E. Geoffrey Bangs collection consists primarily of black and white photographs documenting numerous Bay Area residential and commercial buildings. The photographs include images of University of California, Berkeley buildings as well. Some of the photographs in the collection may be for Bangs' a photo essay entitled "Portals West: A Folio of Late Nineteenth Century Architecture in California." The collection also contains a typescript of this book, which was published by the California Historical Society.
