San Francisco architect Julia Morgan (1872-1957) produced this design for her faithful patron, William Randolph Hearst, publisher of the morning Los Angeles Herald and the evening Los Angeles Express; according to the Los Angeles An Architectural Guide (1994), J. Martyn Haenke (b. 1880) of the Los Angeles firm, Haenke and Dodd, appears to have assisted Morgan in producing the working drawings and supervising construction; the Hearst organization moved into the building in late 1914.
