 Title:  Franklin D. Israel papers  
 Dates:  1967-1996 
 Abstract:  Los Angeles-based architect Frank Israel contributed substantially toward the architectural discourse of the 1980s and early 1990s, and served as a key link between the modernist generation of California architects and the work of current practitioners. The archive comprises about 8,000 original drawings and prints, 38 models, photographs, articles, and extensive office records and correspondence files that encompass Israel's design process while also providing insight into the establishment of firms and modern architectural business practice.

 Title:  Welton Becket architectural drawings and photographs  
 Dates:  1913-2009, bulk 1930-1969 
 Abstract:  The Welton Becket architectural drawings and photographs document the career of this architect whose iconic designs defined the built environment of Los Angeles in the mid-twentieth century. Comprised of over 10,000 drawings and over 1500 photographs, the collection includes a selection of projects from Becket's earliest independent work in 1930, through his involvement in the firms of Plummer, Wurdeman and Becket; Wurdeman and Becket; and Welton Becket and Associates, until his death in 1969. The archive also contributes to the discussion of structural and theoretical changes in architectural practice in the mid-twentieth century.
