The Los Angeles architect Charles F. Plummer (1879-1939) designed the Aldama Elementary School in the prevalent Spanish Colonial Revival mode of the 1920s. Plummer's practice would change after 1930, when he took on two recent graduates from the University of Washington, Walter C. Wurdeman (1903-1949) and Welton D. Becket, Sr., (1902-1969). becoming far more modern in its orientation. The firm made a huge splash with its Streamline Moderne Pan-Pacific Auditorium design in 1934.
