Pasadena Heritage presents "A Tribute to Julia Morgan," a presentation and discussion on the life and work of this ground-breaking architect by Professor Emerita, Cal Poly Pomona, Ana Maria Whitaker.

Julia Morgan was the first woman architect licensed in the state of California in 1904 and ran a very successful firm for 42 years. She hired women draftspersons, architects and artists to work with her. Her projects were built in 47 California cities and include institutional, commercial and residential properties in multiple styles. Julia Morgan is perhaps most famously known for having designed Hearts Castle, but she is also known for designing 20 YWCA buildings in California, Hawaii, Utah, and Arizona.

(A recording will be made available to ticket purchasers until March 28, 2021.)
