Description
Edward Durell Stone was an internationally known architect who was active from the 1920s through the 1960s. At the suggestion of Thomas D. Church, Arthur Hanisch, owner and president of the Stuart Pharmaceutical Company, hired Stone to design its new headquarters in Pasadena, California. The material in this collection depicts the Stuart building from concept to completion primarily through photographs, drawings and published articles. Ludwig Lauerhass, Jr., the vice president of Stuart at the time, collected publicity related to Stone and the Stuart building. In addition, there are sketches and plans for Lauerhass' personal residence in Altadena which was never built.
