In celebration of International Women’s Day, Inge Horton, author of the book Early Women Architects of the San Francisco Bay Area: The Lives and Work of Fifty Professionals, 1890 –1951, will talk about the careers and work of a few women who practiced architecture in San Francisco at the same time as Julia Morgan. While Morgan is widely known as an eminent woman architect, she was not alone, and many other women pursued architecture as their professional field and had to overcome many difficulties in the male-dominated profession. Their work and careers were mostly unknown until Inge Horton diligently researched them, documented their fascinating life stories, and eventually wrote a book about these amazing women and their buildings. Portraits and images of their work will illustrate the presentation.
