Biography

Julia Morgan, (1872-1957)
Julia Morgan was born in 1872 in Oakland, California, where she continued to live throughout her life. Immediately after Morgan's graduation from Oakland High School, she enrolled in the College of Civil Engineering at University of California, Berkeley, receiving her degree in 1894. While at Berkeley she was introduced to Bernard Maybeck, who was an instructor of drawing at the university, since at that time there was no school of architecture. Maybeck encouraged students interested in architecture to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, the foremost architectural program at the time. After graduation Morgan worked briefly for Maybeck, and then traveled to Paris in 1896 intending to enroll in the Ecole.
In 1897, Morgan took the entrance examination for the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, ranking 13th out of 392 competitors. Despite her score, she was denied admission because the school did not wish to encourage women in the field of architecture. The next year Morgan became the first woman to be admitted to the architecture school. She chose the atelier of Benjamin Chaussemiche, winner of the 1890 Prix de Rome and official architect for the City of Paris. Morgan excelled in her studies, becoming the first woman to receive a diploma in architecture in 1901. After graduation, she continued to work for Chaussemiche, designing the Harriet Fearing Residence in Fontainebleau.
In 1902 Morgan returned to the Bay Area and was employed by John Galen Howard, the University of California, Berkeley architect. While at his office, she worked on projects such as the Hearst Mining Building and the Greek Theater. In 1905 she opened her own office in the Merchants Exchange Building in San Francisco, however, the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fires interrupted her practice. Morgan temporarily moved her practice to Oakland and formed a partnership with Ira Wilson Hoover, another draftsman in Howard's office. The new firm, "Morgan and Hoover" had several notable commissions during this period, including the Carnegie Library at Mills College, St. John's Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, and the structural renovation of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.
In 1910 Hoover moved to New York, and the firm changed its name to "Julia Morgan, Architect." Although Morgan maintained her own practice, she often worked on joint projects with other architects and engineers. Morgan worked with Maybeck on the Hearst Gymnasium at University of California, Berkeley, and later, on Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. She also collaborated with engineer Walter Steilberg, even after he left her office.
Julia Morgan is well known for her residences, but she also designed numerous institutional buildings such as churches, schools, hospitals, university buildings, swimming pools and a series of YWCA buildings. She worked principally in California and the West. For distant projects, she often sent Edward Hussey, an architect in her office; to monitor projects and keep her updated on their progress.
Phoebe Apperson Hearst and her son William Randolph Hearst were responsible for a number of Morgan's commissions. Phoebe Hearst encouraged Morgan in her career, commissioned her to work, and was a great supporter until her death in 1919. One of Morgan's largest commissions was William Randolph Hearst's La Cuesta Encantada, popularly known as Hearst Castle, in San Simeon. In 1919 she began work on the lavish and enormous compound, a project which continued for nearly twenty years. Other designs for Hearst included a commercial building in San Francisco, the Wyntoon estate in Siskiyou County, the San Francisco Medieval Museum, a residence for Marion Davies in Santa Monica, and the Babicora Hacienda in Mexico.
Morgan's projects were incredibly varied in style and materials. This diversity is usually attributed to her willingness to listen to clients' desires as well as her flexibility as an architect. Utilizing her Beaux-Arts training, Morgan began with logical and coherent plans and then added the exterior facades and ornament. Renaissance Revival, Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean and Islamic styles were all part of her architectural vocabulary and were pieced together and overlapped with Craftsman elements as needed. Although the exact number of projects by Julia Morgan is unknown, over her career she is believed to have designed more than seven hundred buildings, most of which were constructed. She closed her office in 1951 at the age of seventy-nine. Morgan died February 2, 1957 at the age of eighty-five.

Scope and Contents Note

The Julia Morgan Collection spans the years 1893-1980, (bulk 1893-1940). It is important as a record of California design, and as a record of the education and work of one of the earliest female architects in the nation. The records document Morgan's education at University of California Berkeley and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, as well as her architectural projects. The collection contains a limited amount of personal papers. Similarly there is little project correspondence; projects are documented mainly through photographs and drawings. The collection is organized into seven series: Personal Papers, Professional Papers, Office Records, Project Records, William Randolph Hearst Commissions, YWCA Commissions, and Additional Donations. This finding aid contains digital images of selected Juila Morgan photographs and drawings from this collection.
The personal papers include notes and drawings documenting Morgan's undergraduate work in engineering at University of California, Berkeley and education at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. The series also contains a small amount of correspondence (including a Christmas card designed by Bernard Maybeck), and sketches from Morgan's trips to France and Switzerland. A travel diary of Morgan's trip to South America is found in Series VI Additional Donations.
The professional papers consist primarily of plates and clippings of European art and architecture. Some of the plates held a personal significance for Morgan; two were signed gifts from her classmate Arthur Brown Jr., and others were reproductions of the work of her patron, Benjamin Chaussemiche.
The project records represent works from the full chronological range of Morgan's architectural practice: from the Harriet Fearing residence in Fontainebleu, France designed in 1901 to her later residential projects. This series also contains records from her collaborations with other architects and engineers such as Bernard Maybeck, her partner Ira Wilson Hoover and her employees, Walter Steilberg and Edward Hussey. Also contains product literature collected by Morgan. Additional project records can be found in Series VI Additional Donations.
The fourth series contains records of projects commissioned William Randolph Hearst. Each project includes drawings. Photographs and correspondence also document San Simeon, which includes a large number of letters between Julia Morgan and Julian Messick, the female artist who created models for the San Simeon project. Wyntoon is represented by a letter and photograph of the Bradenstoke Barn, a historic structure Hearst proposed incorporating into the main building. The series also includes records and photographs of the Spanish monastery that was dismantled and brought to this country to be constructed as the Medieval Museum in 1941. Other Hearst commissions are represented by records found in Series VI Additional Donations.
The fifth series consists of materials from Morgan's projects for the Young Women's Christian Association. Included are drawings of several YWCA's plus additional records on the Berkeley and Honolulu buildings.
The Additional Donations contains a large number of records. These records were given to the archives after the initial donation in 1959. These subsequent donations were given to the archives by different donors between the years 1960-1989. The Additional Donations series includes specifications, drawings, a model, and a diary. Each donation is a subseries, most subseries contain one project, but several subseries contain multiple projects.
Guide to the Project Index:
The Project Index is a way to organize the various formats of architectural records from the same project. Each horizontal row holds information about a project and the location of the project records.
Client Name/Project Name:
The first column lists the Client or Project name. The client name is always listed first. If the project has a name, this may be listed with a see reference to the client. This is the most likely way that researchers will wish to find a project.
Collaborator/Role:
Often architects worked with other architects, engineers, or landscape architects. The name of the collaborator is listed, Last name, and first initial. The role of the collaborator follows in the same column in parenthesis.

e.g. Maybeck, B. (architect) = Maybeck as a collaborating architect
Physical Location of Materials:

Manuscript Records, Drawings, Detail Drawings, Photographs

  • The next set of fields are used to designate the physical location of any materials related to the project. Materials may include records, files, correspondence, and papers, drawings, detail drawings, or photographs.
  • The location of the materials is formatted to have the box number, then folder number.

    e.g. Box # | Folder # - one box, one folder: 5 | 2
  • Folders in consecutive order, but the same box will be hyphenated. e.g. additional folders - same box, consecutive: 5 | 6-9
  • Folders not in consecutive order, but in the same box will be separated by a comma.

    e.g. additional folders - same box, not consecutive: 5 | 6, 11
  • Materials that reside in more than one box are separated in the cell with a comma.

    e.g. additional folders - different box: 4 | 3, 5 | 2
  • If the material is not a box, but actually a Tube, a T will be entered before the tube number, or if the oversize folder is in a Flat File, FF before the folder number.
Date:
The date of the project. May be a single year, a range of years, or a circa date.
Location and State:
The geographical location of the project.
Project Type:
The general term for the category of building.

e.g. a commercial building or a residence.
Microfilm:
This column will appear if the collection has been microfilmed. The column tracks the amount of material microfilmed for each project: all, selected or none.
