*Julia Morgan (1872-1957), renowned Bay Area architect of the first half of the 20th century, has become a California icon for her distinctive Craftsman and Mediterranean designs, her social conscience, and her early success in a male-dominated profession. Most widely known for Hearst Castle at San Simeon, she designed YWCAs, churches, clubs, schools, and homes throughout California - around 700 projects in a 50 year career. In 2014 she was posthumously awarded the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects, the first woman to receive this honor.
