Building History

The Pasadena architects Hunt and Grey designed this residence for the eminent surgeon Guy Hunt Cochran (born 09/04/1873 in IL), his wife, Alice I. Cowan (born c. 1875 in NV), and their daughter, Carolyn (born c. 1907 in CA). In 1910, the Cochrans had three servants, Elizabeth Burt (born c. 1885 in England), Amos Moss (born c. 1880 in AL), and his wife, Susie D. Moss, (born c. 1887 in AL) The house was completed in 1906, and the Cochran Family dwelled here into the 1930s. In 1937, the Cochrane's son Guy Laurence Cochran, who became an architect, lived at 234 Loma Drive.

The Cochran House was one of the best-publicized houses created during the early years of the Hunt and Grey partnership.

Building Notes

An article in House Beautiful in 06/1908 misspelled the surgeon's surname, spelling it "Cockran" rather than "Cochran." (See "A Los Angeles House," House Beautiful, vol. XXIV, no. 1, 06/1908, p.1-3.)
