Julia Morgan: An Online Exhibition

In 1904, Julia Morgan became the first woman licensed to practice architecture in California. She was a trendsetter and a very prolific architect, and she is most well-known for designing the truly sprawling grounds of San Simeon, which was the estate of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. During her long career, she designed over 700 buildings and was heralded for her generosity of spirit. This digital collection from Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo presents a detailed biography of her life, along with information about her education and work at San Simeon. For architectural historians, the Julia Morgan on the Central Coast area provides details on five of her projects, including the rather quaint and tiny Zegar Playhouse. Additionally, the site contains a detailed description of her personal papers and their contents, which are held at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo.
