In the latest volume, Paul R. Williams, the authors, in collaboration with writer Stephen Gee, focus on an architect whose trailblazing career defied the odds. The orphan son of an African-American fruit and vegetable merchant, Williams overcame widespread discrimination in early to mid 20thcentury America to become one of the most significant architects of his time. Working in a variety of styles, his mastery of harmonious proportions and signature undulating lines helped define a golden era in Southern California architecture. The more than 3,000 structures that carry his architectural imprimatur ranged from modest, affordable homes to extravagant mansions for Hollywood's elite, as well as important civic and commercial projects.
