Virtual Lecture

New England Historic Genealogical Society
Moderated by Curt DiCamillo

Join Victoria Kastner, author of Julia Morgan: An Intimate Biography of the Trailblazing Architect, as she reveals the inspiring story of Julia Morgan, the first renowned female architect in history. Born 150 years ago, Julia’s future seemed certain: marriage, then motherhood, then the genteel pursuits of a society matron. Instead, she courageously forged her own path building over 700 structures including William Randolph Hearst’s lavish San Simeon estate. It is an impressive legacy of strong, useful, and beautiful buildings that honor and delight everyone who enters them. Posthumously in 2014, Julia was the first woman to receive the American Institute of Architects’ prestigious Gold Medal.
