This is now a few years old; however the content is ever relevant. We find ourselves in a moment in time which none of us ever imagined. This country of ours is so big and diverse. Each of us having a difficult time understanding how we arrived here.

Julia Morgan, architect of San Simeon, the Herald Examiner and other projects for William Hurst as well as other important commissions. No discussion of Los Angeles is complete without including her.
