Library Journal - Library JournalOne of the most prominent African-American architects in America, Williams was one of very few to attain fellowship status in the American Institute of Architects. He practiced in his native city, Los Angeles, for 50 years, from the 1920s to the 1960s, during which time he designed all manner of commissions: from trendy restaurants to post offices to private residences, including that of Frank Sinatra. Stylistically, his work ran the gamut from the most conservative historic revivalism to the most futuristic modern design. This loving tribute and compendium of his work is presented to us by his granddaughter. Recommended for academic libraries and large architecture collections.-- Peter Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
