Herbert 'Herb' B. Turner (1926 - 2010)


Herb Turner

Herbert B. Turner was born on March 20, 1926 in Mt. Vernon, New York and raised in Saranac Lake in midst of The Great Depression. Herb, an only child, attended Saranac Lake High School, Bradens (a prep school for West Point), Lehigh University (1945) and West Point Military Academy (1949). He was the first in his family to attend college.

Following his graduation from West Point, Herb Turner studied at Lehigh University’s Art Students League and the National Academy of Design.He studied with Mr. Naum Los and Robert Brackman at The National Academy of Design (1951).

Having discovered the beauty of Southern California, and in particular, John Lloyd Wright’s residential designs, Herb decided to head west. Herb wrote Mr. Wright requesting an apprenticeship in his Del Mar practice. Following his announcement to his father that he was leaving, Mr. Turner packed up his car and drove to Del Mar. The year was 1952, a time when Wright’s (Del Mar) neighborhood’s dirt roads were still being cleared by horses dragging eucalyptus logs around the rutted landscape.

Turner arrived on John Lloyd Wright’s doorstep with the assumption his letter had arrived and Wright would welcome the young apprentice. Instead, Herb was welcomed with neither. Wright invited the young, weary traveler into his home and in exchange for work around the property, Herb was given room and board. The apprenticeship lasted a few years (1952-55) at 75-cents per hour before Turner joined Dale Naegle’s firm.

Herb Turner eventually opened his own home-office where he established a successful family-run design-build firm. Since his early days in Del Mar, Turner also painted, sculpted and taught students. He exhibited his work at Laguna Beach Art Museum, La Jolla Art Guild, and the San Diego Museum of Art.
