The Willa Cloys Carmack Collection spans the years 1916-1962 and includes personal, professional, and project records. This
collection is organized into two series: Personal Papers, Professional Papers.
Willa Cloys was an only child, born November 1, 1889, in the Midwest. Her father Edward H. Cloys was a building contractor
and the family moved to California around the late nineteen-teens. Willa was one of the first women to graduate with a degree
in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley, which at that time was part of the Department of Agriculture under the direction
of Professor John Gregg. After graduating with her degree in 1916, she is listed in the Berkeley City Directory, in 1917,
as a Landscape Architect.
