Administrative History of the Scripps College Architectural Drawings

Scripps College is frequently described as one of America’s most beautiful college campuses. Scripps’ scenic 30-acre campus, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann in collaboration with landscape architect Edward Huntsman-Trout. The plan for Scripps campus was designed with the idea that there would be an artistic connection between the buildings and its landscape. One such example is the walkways that line the campus. Each walkway was designed to link walks and vistas to architectural approaches. Examples of such walkways include: the vista between the entrance to Balch Auditorium and the entrance to the President’s House, through a grassed lane shaded by rows of American elms; the north-south axis of the campus, the orange tree-bordered walk from the Oak Terrace above the Bowling Green to the door of Toll Hall, with the fountain entrance to the Florence Rand Lang Art Building framed in the tree-formed vista from Toll terrace; and the east-west crosswalk extending the width of the campus near the halls of residence, focused on Dorsey Hall’s great window.
The general plan of the campus, the four residence halls, the Memorial Garden, and the Art Building were designed in 1926 by architect Gordon Kaufmann of Los Angeles. Kauffman was a leading architect during the 1920s. Sumner Hunt, also of Los Angeles, was the architect chosen - in the late 1920s - by Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Balch to design Balch Hall, which houses the academic interests of the College. The newer buildings on campus, which were acquired in the 1980s-1990s, have diverged from the Mediterranean style of architecture popular in the 1920s-1930s. However, the newest buildings - Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Hall, completed in 2000, and the Malott Commons, renovated in 2000 – have been designed to be in harmony with the distinctive look of the original campus.
The landscape architect for the entire campus was Edward Huntsman-Trout of Hollywood. Huntsman-Trout was a well-known landscape architect in Southern California between 1920 and the early 1970’s, and was a prominent designer of both residential estates and larger non-residential commissions. One of the most representative examples of Huntsman-Trout’s style is Scripps College. Scripps College features one and two story Spanish Colonial Revival buildings placed on rectilinear, interlocking axes. The plan is highly complex. The open spaces are enhanced by the addition of intimate courtyards and slight changes of level. Two major axes make up the scheme; the east-west axis of the auditorium; and the art building facing north toward the bowling green and Toll Hall. These axes together make the structural backbone of the plan. They give it strength and stability to contrast with the free form of trees and other plants. Huntsman-Trout placed many rare shrubs and trees on the campus, including liquidambar, American elms, tulip trees, almond trees, and a variety of sycamores. Garden grounds are frequent throughout.
