University of California, Berkeley (UCB), Berkeley, CA


This campus plan prepared by the New York architectural firm of Howard, Cauldwell and Morgan came in second place in the design competition for the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) Campus, sponsored by Phoebe Apperson Hearst. The winner Henri Jean Émile Bénard (1844-1929), refused to leave France to supervise his winning plan's construction, and John Galen Howard (1864-1931), a member of the second-prize winning firm, was invited to supervise construction of the Bénard Plan. Howard quickly convinced the Hearsts and UCB administrators that Bénard's plan had been impractical in scale, and he developed his own design drawing ideas from various sources.
