Becket (Welton) Architectural Drawings and Photographs

Container List

Series I. Early practice, 1930-1932 4 Linear Feet (12 flat file folders)
Drawings from Welton Becket's early architectural practice form Series I of the archive. From 1930 to 1932, both independently and in partnership with his former classmate Walter Wurdeman, Becket designed several commercial and residential projects in Seattle and the surrounding area. Becket worked in a variety of styles. For a garage meant to serve the Art Deco Edmond Meany Hotel, Becket designed in that style, while his residential work ranged from Tudor revival to traditional Cape Cod homes. The varying identifications on the signature blocks on the drawings for this period show Becket's evolving relationship with Wurdeman, from working as associates to what appears to be a firm, Becket and Wurdeman. When Becket worked independently, the drawings were signed Welton D. Becket, Architect.

Series V. Collaborations and unidentified work, 1939-1945, 2009, undated 63.2 Linear Feet (2 boxes, 38 flatfile folders, 10 boxed rolls)
Drawings for two groups of collaborative projects implemented by Wurdeman and Becket outside their normal firm structure form Series V. The projects are contemporaneous with the firm of Wurdeman and Becket, but very different from the firm's standard practice.
The bulk of this material relates to work done for the Navy during World War II. Beginning in 1942, Wurdeman and Becket joined forces with Louis Bodmer, an architect practicing in San Diego. Initially working as associated firms, but quickly shifting to a Bodmer, Wurdeman and Becket signature block, the firm produced over 14,000 housing units for military families and defense workers.
The other group of collaborative projects in this series consists of housing projects commissioned by The Housing Authority Council of Los Angeles (HACLA). A group of leading architects, known as the Southeast Housing Architects Associated, which included Paul R. Williams, Richard Neutra, Gordon Kaufman, and Adrian Wilson, as well as Wurdeman and Becket, worked together to design new options for low-cost housing using a limited range of materials.
Also included in this series are drawings and photographs lacking full identification. The degree to which these items are unidentified varies. Some drawings can not be connected to a project, some projects can not be assigned to a firm, and some drawings are by other architects with an unclear connection to the projects in this archive.

The series is arranged by project groupings, with unidentified materials at the end.

Series VII is comprised of the drawings for about 90 projects created by Charles F. Plummer during two periods of independent practice, from about 1919 to 1932 and then from 1938 until his death early in 1939. Presumably Welton Becket retained these drawings after the 1939 death of Charles Plummer, his partner in the firm of Plummer, Wurdeman and Becket.
