Background
William Henry Weeks was an early 20th-century architect who designed hundreds of buildings in California (primarily northern California) over the course of his career. Weeks was born on January 18, 1864 in Wichita, Kansas and began his career working with his father as a builder and designer. In 1894, Weeks opened his own practice in Watsonville, California and then opened a second branch in Salinas, California in 1897, and a third branch in San Francisco in 1905. Starting in 1924, William Henry Weeks joined in partnership with his son Harold Weeks to form Weeks and Weeks, Architects, which was based in the San Francisco bay area. Weeks and Weeks quickly developed a reputation as experts in secondary school architecture and designed over one hundred schools over the life of the firm. William Henry Weeks died in 1936.
