I created a page for the late Fred Earl Norris HERE. The La Jolla architect worked briefly with Frederick Liebhardt and was respected by many of his colleagues during his career in San Diego County.

Completed in 1963, the Flansburgh House in Lincoln, Massachusetts, designed by Earl R. Flansburgh, is the latest privately owned historic property protected through a preservation easement held by Historic New England’s Stewardship Program. Overall, Lincoln and the surrounding area has excellent examples of Modern houses including Historic New England's 1938 Gropius House, designed by Walter Gropius, which is open to the public year round.

When three like-minded San Diego natives who collect, sell, show, publish, and preach Southern California craft design and visual art from the 1940's to the '70's decided to go into business together in 2005, they chose a name that's something of a misnomer: Objects:USA.
