Synopsis: The California to Remember is well illustrated with pencil drawings provided by Eugene Gilbert, a very talented and well-known architect responsible for the design of Duke University, the Philadelphia Public Library, and the New York Evening Post Building, and for the development of Westwood in Los Angeles. It is obvious that he has spent many years studying the art form and his excellent drawings show fine detail. He has chosen some 300 or more of his drawings that depict various aspects of California architecture. They include such diverse buildings as the St. James Episcopal Church in Sonora, Mission San Luis Rey near Oceanside, the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, Jack London's "Wolf House" near Glen Ellen, and the Trujillo Adobe in Riverside. The drawings illustrate the subtle changes in architecture that occurred beginning with the Spanish in 1769 and ending with the Americans in the early twentieth century. Richard F. Pourade has provided a short text to introduce each of the three chapters and captions with some historical data for each of the illustrations. In a few pages of introductory information he attempts to provide a short historical synopsis to explain the Spanish-Mexican Period, the Gold Rush, and the Railroads and the development that accompanied them. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Eugene Gilbert, artist, architect, was probably best known for his books of pencil sketches, the first of which was published in France during World War I while he was a combat infantryman "The 28th Division in France," sold 15,000 copies while he was still overseas, including one copy that went to Gen. John J. Pershing. As an architect, he had been responsible for the overall designs of the Duke University campus and buildings in North Carolina, the Philadelphia Library, the Ben Franklin Hotel and numerous other projects.
