William O. Raiguel was born in Freehold, New Jersey in 1875. He studied design and architecture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He came to California after the San Francisco earthquake in 1906 and became a partner in the architectural firm of John Galen Howard, which was responsible for several new buildings on the University of California, Berkeley campus in the aftermath of the earthquake. After service in World War I, Raiguel returned to San Francisco, working for Gladding McBean & Co. Clay products, and then moved to the Monterey Peninsula in 1926, where he took the position of supervising architect for the Del Monte Properties Co., as well as working independently. Among his local buildings are: the Monterey Chamber of Commerce on Munras Ave., the Monterey Post Office, the Mission Memorial Mausoleum, and the Clubhouse of the Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course.
