PAUL REVERE WILLIAMS (1894-1980)

Williams was born in Los Angeles CA to parents who moved from Memphis TN. When Paul was two years old his father died and two years later his mother died.  Williams and his brother were placed in separate foster homes.  Williams was the only black child in his elementary school.  At Polytechnic High School a teacher advised him against pursuing a career in architecture because white clients would not want a black architect - and there were not enough black clients who could afford an architect.  Williams persevered.  He was the first black architect to graduate from USC in 1914.  He was hired by Reginald Johnson and later John Austin and was licensed as an architect by the State of California in 1921. Williams opened his own practice in 1922 and become the first black member of the national AIA in 1923.  His books were "The Small Home of Tomorrow" (1945) and "New Homes for Today" (1946).

Williams is most well-known, inaccurately, as the architect of the Theme Building at LAX Airport, shown above. It was actually designed by Luckman, Pereira, and Becket, but this photo by Julius Shulman cemented the urban myth.

Williams is most well-known, accurately, for celebrity houses.  He did so many he was referred to as "architect to the stars."

From 1939-1940, architect Quincy Jones worked for Williams and the two collaborated on at least 20 projects after 1942, including the 1947 Palm Springs Tennis Club.

His groovy La Concha Motel in Las Vegas NV became The Neon Museum. His records were destroyed in LA riots in the 1990's. 

In 1957, Williams was the first black architect to be named an AIA Fellow. He was given the national AIA Gold Medal in 2017.  1950's video Addit video.
