Records in the Olof Dahlstrand Collection span the years 1947-1983. The collection is organized into three series: Personal
Papers, Project Records, and Art and Artifacts.
Olof Dahlstrand, born in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin in 1916, earning his degree in architecture from Cornell University in 1939.
After receiving his degree, Dahlstrand worked briefly in Wisconsin, and then moved to the San Francisco Bay area in 1948.
He worked as an associate for Fred and Lois Langhorst, both modernist architects gaining recognition in Northern California.
While working for the Langhorsts, Dahlstrand worked on the Muscatine residence and a show at the San Francisco Museum of Art
(later San Francisco Museum of Modern Art). The trio's sketches, renderings, photographs, and drawings were a sensation.
