Welcoming Ann Scheid to the SAH/SCC Advisory Board
This month we welcome the addition of long-time SAH/SCC member Ann Scheid to the SAH/SCC Advisory Board. For years, Ann served the organization as a board member-writing for the newsletter, organizing tours and events, and educating the public about the remarkable built environment in Southern California.
Recently, Ann was the inspiration for our Greta Magnusson Grossman tour. Ann connected SAH/SCC with the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm and the Pasadena Museum of California Art-and even did some preliminary scouting of the locations. Without her inspiration, this important tour would have never happened! Many of you will recognize Ann from participating in our tours and events through the years. In 2008, she also led our group on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Huntington Library archives, where Ann is the archivist for the Greene & Greene Archives.
It seems only appropriate, therefore, that we acknowledge her ongoing contributions with an appointment to the SAH/SCC Advisory Board.
We periodically look to the Advisory Board for inspiration and mine the members' deep knowledge of Southern California architecture and history. Advisory Board member Edward (Ted) Bosley spoke at the Lucy Wheeler Residence (Greene & Greene, 1905/1917) salon in West Adams. In April, two Advisory Board members, Stephen Harby and Ken Breisch, contributed to our post-screening panel discussion on architecture in Cuba for "Unfinished Spaces."
You can read some of Ann’s insightful observations about the planning of the Pasadena Civic Center in an archived copy of the SAH/SCC Review, 1985, Issue #1
Congratulations, Ann! And on behalf of all of our members, thank you for your ongoing contributions to the architectural history of Southern California.
