Bird, Fujimoto & Fish

The firm of Freeland, Bird & Associates (1964-67) and later Bird, Fujimoto & Fish (established in 1967) was comprised of principals James Wright Bird, Walter Fujimoto, and Charles William Fish.

James Bird was born in National City in 1926. Following service in the U.S. Navy (1944-46), Bird secured his BA in architecture from USC in 1953. Moving back to San Diego, he joined the local chapter of the AIA in 1955. He would serve as San Diego's chapter treasurer (1959-60), president (1961) and director (1962).

Walter Fujimoto was born in San Diego in 1925. He served in the U.S. Army (1951-53) following graduation from the IIT in 1949 with a BS in Architecture.

Charles Fish was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1925. Following service in the U.S. Army (1945-47), Fish secured his BS in Architecture from the University of Cincinnati (June, 1952) before packing up his wife, Shirley, their belongings and two toddlers in a used Chevrolet and heading out west. He found work in offices in both Riverside and Redlands before joining up with Stanley Clarke Meston in Fontana. Meston's office was small - himself, secretary Sara Arhlent and a young beginning draftsman Jack Sparks. Fish worked in Meston's office for 4.5 years a span of time which included the design of the very first McDonald’s restaurant. He began working with Jim Bird as early as 1959 after moving to San Diego. During Charle's career he designed six private residences, one of which was not built.
