Some of you may remember SAH/SCC Member Bret Parsons from the recent Paul R. Williams, FAIA, event. If you do, you won’t want to miss a chance to hear Bret talk about his book Colcord—Home (Angel City Press, 2008).

In the 1920s, Southern California exploded as the greatest home-building region in the world. Beaux-Arts trained architect Gerard Colcord (1900-1984) flourished here, creating 400 estates between 1924 and 1984. Real estate expert Parsons culled through 10,000 original documents and interviewed 300 past and present Colcord homeowners to complete this intimate portrait of the man and his homes.

As one reviewer described the book, “Colcord is a refreshing book that reveals the work of an architect in California who was able to pursue his version of traditional American architecture under the radar of Modernist critics.”
