Professional History

Résumé

Perry's career, like that of William Charles Hays, (1873-1963), was closely connected with that of John Galen Howard, (1864-1931), Director of the Department of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB). Perry was an early graduate of Howard's new architectural program at the UCB, and became a close ally of his mentor.

Draftsman, John Galen Howard, Architect, San Francisco, CA, 1911-1913.

Principal, Warren Charles Perry, Architect, San Francisco, CA, 1913-1958. Warren C. Perry had an office at 260 California Street in 1945. (See San Francisco, California, City Directory, 1945, p. 1961.)

Perry retired in 1958.
