Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Lilian Bridgman Photograph Collection (ca. 1881-1940) contains primarily photographs of homes she designed while living in Berkeley, California. The collection also includes personal photographs of Lilian and her family, as well as photographs of classmates, students and professors she knew throughout her academic career.
Lilian Bridgman was born in eastern Kansas in 1866 to Israel Noble Bridgman and Sarah Ezilda. She attended the Kansas State Agricultural College, graduating in 1888 with a degree in science. Her transcripts also reveal an interest in drawing, literature and music. In 1891, she came to the University of California, Berkeley where she studied with Professor Joseph LeConte. Her thesis, titled The Origin of Sex in Fresh-Water Algae, earned her a master's degree in science in 1893.
