Considers the life and work of African American architect Paul Revere Williams (1894-1980). Written by his granddaughter. "During a prolific career that extended from the 1920s through the 1970s, Los Anglese architect Paul R. Williams designed over 3,000 projects, including mansions for stars of the entertainment industry: Frank Sinatra in Trousdale Estates, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Palm Springs, Tyrone Power in Brentwood and Bel Air, William 'Bojangles' Robinson in Los Angeles, and Lon Chaney in Beverly Hills and Lake Arrowhead. His vast body of built work stretches across the world -- from Paris and Colombia to Washington, D.C., New York, and Memphis -- but the Los Angeles area was his personal and professional focus."
