Description
The Berkeley Brandt papers span 4 linear feet and date circa 1900 to circa 1931. The collection is composed of watercolor paintings (most of which are mounted on boards) of the interiors of residential homes, pencil drawings of the interior of St. Etinne Church, and architectural drawings and reprographic copies of both residential and commercial buildings designed by Brandt.

The collection also includes clippings from The Los Angeles Times as well as other architectural periodicals such as the American Architect and Building News.
