From the Publisher;

Julia Morgan, America’s first truly independent female architect, left a legacy of over 700 buildings, many of which are now designated landmarks, in cities throughout California, as well as in Hawaii, Utah, and Illinois. Her work spanned five decades, and the total of her commissions was greater than any other major American architect, including Frank Lloyd Wright. Julia Morgan tells the remarkable story of this architectural pioneer, and features text, drawings, and photographs of the many buildings that still exist.

Morgan’s legacy includes: —William Randolph Hearst Castle at San Simeon —Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland —University of California at Berkeley’s Greek Theater —Oakland’s Mills College Bell Tower in 1904 —Phoebe A. Hearst Memorial Gymnasium for Women
