Fred Earl Norris (1923 - 2006)

Fred Norris was born April 11, 1923, in San Diego. Following military service he and Frederick Liebhardt opened their office (ca. 1951-1952) on Herschel (in La Jolla). Fred Liebhardt and Henry Hester joined in partnership (1957) while Fred Norris was still in Liebhardt’s employ. Norris left the partnership in 1957-58. Norris, according to former employee Ray Nelson, was “…very neat and organized (and some would say a perfectionist) while Liebhardt was a bit disorganized and messy. Their parting may not have been on the best of terms.”

Ray Nelson worked for Fred Norris between 1969 and 1970. Of that time, Nelson recalled that Norris’ “…office at the time was on La Jolla Boulevard near Bird Rock (#5709 as I recall). The office appeared to be a house that Fred or someone had converted to offices. Most of the original house seemed to be intact at the rear and the office section abutted the sidewalk on the east side of La Jolla Blvd. Typical of the era the office was not air conditioned so we enjoyed the cool ocean breezes most of the year.”

Of Fred Norris, Nelson recalled “…as most architects was a good person and as I recall a good designer. Fred was a meticulous architect and his construction documents were very detailed as they needed to be for the precise exacting style of his designs. He related to me that he was a graduate of UC Berkeley and had some connection with/to Richard Neutra.”

Ray Nelson recalled that Norris’ influences may have been ‘…a lot of Greene and Greene influence as well as the interpretation of the International style suitable to the San Diego climate.”

Architect Paul McKim, among others through the years, worked for Norris as a draftsman.

At age 83, Norris, who was living in Lahaina, died on November 9, 2006, at Hale Makua, Wailuku. A graveside service was held at Maui Veterans Cemetery pavilion. He was survived by a son, Neal (Vicky) Norris; a daughter, Nikki Norris; and four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
