Background
In 1958, a small group of volunteers, as members of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Historic Building Committee, became alarmed by the destruction of historic landmarks created by the explosion of growth in post-World War II Los Angeles. The AIA Committee and the City’s Municipal Art Commission began working on an ordinance that would create a citizens board to survey, identify and protect historic sites throughout the city.
