Biographical/Historical note

Elliot Welsh was born on June 19, 1916. He graduated from University High School and went on to technical school where he studied design. After school, Welsh worked shortly for the architect Paul Williams whom Welsh credited with having taught him the fundamentals of residential architecture. During WWII, Welsh worked as a draftsman for Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica. After the war he began to practice architecture out of his home on 26th street in Santa Monica, designing primarily homes in the Brentwood and Bel Air areas. From the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, Welsh worked with architect Elda Muir. The two worked out of her office in Santa Monica. Welsh died on April 21, 1997.

Scope and Content note

The Elliott Welsh papers span 5 linear feet and date from circa 1965 to circa 1995. The collection consists of the work of two architects, Elliot Welsh and Elda Muir. Within the Elliott Welsh collection there is one file folder filled with Elda Muir’s architectural drawings for the Louis R. Busch residence dated 1965. Aside from this folder, the rest of the collection regards the work of Welsh in the form of architectural drawings and reprographic copies of residences and residential remodels in the Los Angeles area, as well as specifications, agreements, and letters from Welsh to clients concerning projects.
