Edward S. Crocker bought the S.S. Crow House, Pasadena, CA, in 1911, just over a year after it was built. Crocker increased the size of the property by buying land to the west of the house. He also erected separate structures and elaborate gardens on this new property. Gebhard and Winter (Los Angeles Architecture: The Guide, [Salt Lake City, UT: Gibbs Smith Publishers, 1994], p. 390), credited the house to Charles Greene completely; the same authors' 1985 Guide, however, Architecture in Los Angeles A Compleat Guide, (Salt Lake City, UT: Gibbs Smith Publishers, 1994), p. 361, stated: "Actually, this Craftsman masterpiece was designed entirely by Henry Greene."
