Horace G. Simpson

Horace G. Simpson was an architect in the San Francisco Bay Area during the early twentieth century. He practiced with the firm Wood & Simpson, but there is little additional documentation about his life.

The Horace G. Simpson collection consists of only a few photographs and drawings relating to Simpson’s education and to competition entries by the firm Wood & Simpson. Photographs include images of Simpson’s second place drawings for the 1908 Rotch Scholarship Competition and a group photograph that may be a class picture. Drawings from the firm Wood & Simpson are primarily competition entries for public buildings such as the San Francisco Civic Center. The collection also contains two volumes of full-size details illustrating buildings in Italy, Greece, France, and Venice.
