Neutra worked with Benno Fischer, Serge Koschin, John Blanton and Thaddeus Longstreth of his staff as Associate Designers on the Singleton House.

Henry E. Singleton, born in 1916 in Haslet, TX, went to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, and later obtained bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees (specializing in electrical engineering) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, graduating in 1950. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1951, working in the booming electronics/aerospace industry for such companies as Hughes Aircraft, North American Aviation and Litton Industries. He began, with partner, George Kozmetsky, Teledyne, a company that grew rich from defense contracts for aviation and computer projects. Teledyne was one of the most prestigious conglomerates of the 1960s, and one of the most profitable, enabling Singleton to become one of the Forbes 400, with an estate worth approximately $750 million in the late 1990s. Singleton died 08/31/1999 of brain cancer at the age of 82. In 10/2004, the Singleton House was selling for the asking price of $5,900,000.
