Building History

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), spent $352,199 of gift money and university funds to erect this domestically-scaled faculty club on the east central portion of the campus. It was designed by the Los Angeles architectural firm of Austin, Field and Fry.

The building was credited to the firm of "Hutchinson and Hutchinson" in Gehard and Winter's Los Angeles An Architectural Guide, but this seems to have been in error. Additionally, the firm's name was "Hutchason and Hutchason." (See David Gebhard and Robert Winter, Los Angeles An Architectural Guide, [Salt Lake City: Gibbs Smith Publisher, 1994], p. 118.) The Online Archive of California has credited Austin, Field and Fry as the architects in its table of "Los Angeles Buildings and Landmarks." (See the Online Archive of California.org, "Los Angeles Buildings and Landmarks," accessed 09/25/2019.) Additionally, an article in the Los Angeles Times, confirmed that Austin, Field and Fry designed the Faculty Center.
