Myron Hunt: Occidental College Campus Tour
Tour & Discussion, Eagle Rock
Sunday, November 03, 2019

The largest concentration of Myron Hunt (1868-1952) buildings will be on tour at Occidental College in Eagle Rock on Sunday, November 3, 2019. This special event features a 45-minute review of the architecture and landscape at the College. Following the presentation and discussion, Stefanos Polyzoides, partner at Moule & Polyzoides; Odom Stamps, president of Stamps & Stamps; former SAH/SCC Board Member Jennifer Trotoux, curator at The Gamble House; and Tom Polansky, Associate Vice President of Facilities at Occidental College, will lead a tour of four sites around the campus, including the new pool and tennis courts designed by Polyzoides. This tour also offers the opportunity to explore the work of renowned landscape architect Beatrix Farrand (1872 -1959)

Farrand was one of 11 founders of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), and the only woman. Her career included commissions to design more than 100 gardens for private residences, estates, and country homes, as well as public parks, botanic gardens, and college campuses—and even the White House.

In addition to the Occidental College campus, Hunt designed scores of notable Southern California landmarks, including several in the area:

Valley Hunt Club (1907)

Throop University Campus Plan (1908); now Caltech

Huntington Mansion (1910); now Art Gallery

Huntington Hotel (1914)

Huntington Library (1919)

Ambassador Hotel (1919-1921); demolished

Rose Bowl (1922)

Pasadena Central Library (1924)

Huntington Memorial Hospital (1940)

The event is a fundraiser for the Oneonta Club Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to education. The foundation has been awarding college scholarships to South Pasadena High School seniors since 1955. This is the first Oneonta Club fundraiser open to the public to help continue that community service.
