Historian Karen McNeill  will be at the Main San Francisco Public Library giving  a lecture and illustrated talk on  Julia Morgan’s San Francisco. Dr. McNeill will begin on the Northwest  corner of Sacramento and Van Ness and end on Clay Street in Chinatown, unveiling some obstacles and triumphs of California’s first woman architect as well as the complex dynamics of organized womanhood  during the progressive era. Julia Morgan designed over 700 buildings in California and beyond during her nearly fifty year career, but San Francisco is uniquely suited to explore the secrets of her early success and breadth of her legacy.
