Paul R. Williams
Paul R. Williams (1894-1980)
One of America’s earliest and best-known African-American architects, Williams was born in Los Angeles, and received his architecture degree at USC. He was the first African American admitted to the AIA. In addition to commercial and educational buildings, he is best known for designing houses for movie stars. By 1929 he had established himself as a specialist in small homes, and in 1945 he published the first of his two important mid-century stock house plan books.
