 Title:  Ray Kappe papers  
 Dates:  1954-2007 
 Abstract:  Los Angeles architect Ray Kappe is one of Southern California's preeminent designers of modern residential architecture and a long-time educator who founded the influential Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Consisting of drawings, documents, photographs, client correspondence, and writings, the Ray Kappe papers provide a record of Kappe's contribution as an architect in private practice, as a partner in various firms and as an educator. The archive is an important resource for the study of postwar California modernism, and in particular the development of prefabrication and sustainability in modern housing, as well as a valuable resource for studying the recent history of architectural education.
