The celebration kicks off at 11am as Morgan scholar Karen McNeill, Ph.D., presents Julia Morgan and Phoebe Hearst: Building Legacies Together. Dr. McNeill is currently writing a biography of Julia Morgan, and has lectured extensively on Morgan’s work in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her studies focus on women and gender in the architectural profession, and the leadership of women in the Progressive Era.
