The collection documents the architectural work of McCarthy with a focus on the libraries that he designed.
Francis Joseph McCarthy was born in 1910 in Sydney, Australia. He received his education in California, Nevada, and Arizona,
and attended Stanford University from 1928-1929. He later studied briefly at the California School of Fine Arts, but the bulk
of his professional training came from working in a number of architectural offices, including the firm of William Wilson
Wurster. He earned his certificate as a registered architect in 1941.
