Sunset, February, 1938 - Campbell Residence Interior by Honor Easton; Webster & Wilson, architects

Residence of Dr. and Mrs. Ian Campbell, 1936
405 South Bonnie Avenue, Pasadena, California
Erle Webster and Adrian Wilson, Architects
Honor Easton, Interior Designer

The residence of Dr. and Mrs. Ian Campbell, one of an adjacent group of houses designed for three couples by the architectural firm of Webster and Wilson. The trio of houses was featured on the cover of California Arts and Architecture, and was also awarded a Certificate of Honor by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1938 as a work of “exceptional merit.”

The Campbell residence itself was featured in several design journals of the day, including The Architect and Engineer magazine , and the interior of the Campbell residence was illustrated on the cover of Sunset magazine in February, 1938.

Dr. Ian Campbell (1899-1978) was a professor of Geology at Caltech in Pasadena. His wife Catherine, known as “Kitty” (1905-1996) a professional geologist, was the first woman to receive a PhD in geology at Harvard, and was described as a “wonderful and witty woman.” They had one son, Dugald.

Deeply proud of his Scottish roots, Ian Campbell was also widely admired by his peers and students, who remembered “his warm, unselfish, devoted service to others.” It was said that he could best be described in one word – “active.” Somewhat of a free spirit, as a young man he had travelled by motorcycle alone from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine, earning a medal for his efforts from the Harley-Davidson Company.

After earning his PhD from Harvard in 1931, he took a position as assistant professor of geology at Caltech University in Pasadena. Like his wife Kitty, he was known for his sense of fun and humor, and he is said to have “given a young PhD student a sample for identification that turned out to be a kidney stone from his Norwegian elkhound.” During the 1933 Long Beach earthquake, he “ran shouting from his house, not in fear but with excitement over the occurrence of this powerful natural phenomena and its scientific implications.”

The Campbells often played badminton with two other couples from Caltech – the Davieses and the Gilberts, all of whom were thinking of buying houses. Godfrey Davies was a historian at the Huntington Library; Horace N. Gilbert was a professor of economics. Since they all enjoyed one another’s company so much, they found a large property on a cul-de-sac near Caltech, purchased it, and began interviewing architects. They had all agreed that they wanted something modern.

They spoke first to Richard Neutra, but Mrs. Gilbert thought his modernity was too severe. They next contacted Harwell Hamilton Harris, who actually drafted plans for the Campbell house , but the group ultimately went with the firm of Erle Webster and Adrian Wilson. Webster and Wilson designed three houses whose overall designs were harmonious and would work together as an ensemble, but gave each home a character of its own.

Erle Farrington Webster (1898-1971) and Adrian Jennings Wilson (1898-1988) met while working as draftsmen for the Los Angeles architectural firm Dodd and Richards in the 1920’s. After William J. Dodd died in 1930, both men stayed on with William Richards for a few years, before forming their own architectural partnership – Webster and Wilson - in 1932.
The firm of Webster and Wilson completed many projects in Southern California, including the master plan for the New Chinatown; three buildings for Y.C. Hong in Chinatown, the Davidson House (“Ship of the Desert”) in Palm Springs, and several branches of the National Cash Register Company. On many of these projects, they collaborated with interior designer Honor Easton.

Honor Easton (1906-1972) came from a family with strong ties to both the decorative arts and Pasadena architecture. Her maternal uncle was Elbert Hubbard, an early proponent of the Arts and Crafts movement, who founded and ran the Roycroft Studios in East Aurora, New York. The Roycroft Studios was a handicraft community which produced objects and prints of fine quality. Elbert Hubbard and his wife Alice were killed when the Lusitania was sunk in 1915. Honor Easton’s father Louis B. Easton was a self-taught house designer and builder in Pasadena. In the years from 1904-15 he created about twenty-five exceptionally designed and built Arts and Crafts houses.

Honor Easton met Erle Webster in the early 1930’s, when they were both heavily involved in the small but thriving Los Angeles art community. By the middle 1930’s, Honor Easton had begun collaborating with Webster and Wilson on architectural projects, designing the interiors and custom designed furniture. The furniture, generally in solid birch and maple, was produced by Paul R. Williams, a cabinetmaker in Glendale (NOT the architect Paul R. Williams), who also collaborated with architect Richard Neutra. Williams was known for producing furniture of exceptional quality.

The collaboration between Honor Easton and Erle Webster was so s
