Continuing with the celebration of Black History Month, I want to introduce architect Paul Revere Williams, FAIA. Mr. Williams was a Los Angeles-based architect, and a Fellow Member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA); in fact, he became the first African-American member of the AIA in 1923, and the first African-American voted Fellow in 1957. He practiced largely in Southern California, and designed many public and private buildings, as well as the homes of numerous Hollywood star, ranging from Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz, and Lon Chaney.
