Biographical Notes

He was known by the nicknames "Pat" or "C.J." during his long life.

The architect was a second cousin of the Polish pianist and statesman, Ignacy Jan Paderewski (1860-1941), who led Poland briefly in the aftermath of World War I. In 1913, Igancy Paderewski bought 2,000 scres of farmland in San Luis Obispo County on which he grew wine grapes. On his Rancho San Ignacio, he cultivated grapes for wine production from 1913 until at least 1923.
