    Biography

    Philip Fein was an architectural photographer working primarily during the 1950s and 60s in California. He photographed both residential and commercial buildings, and landscapes. Based on the records, it appears that he was exclusively contracted by firms to document architectural sites.

    Scope and Contents Note

    The Fein collection consists primarily of black and white photographs and negatives, but includes some color transparencies. Images depict interior and exterior views as well as landscapes. Architects and landscape architects represented in the collection include Thomas Church, Douglas Baylis, Clarence Tantau, Frederick Langhorst, and William Wurster. An index to the collection is available in the archives.
