SketchJames D. Wickenden

James D. Wickenden practiced architecture in Northern California after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Architecture in 1925. He worked as a draftsman in Clarence Tantau’s office during his early career.

The James D. Wickenden collection consists mainly of student work and project drawings. Coursework includes drawing exercises from high school and from a stereotomy course at UC Berkeley. Project drawings are primarily residential and include the Gilman house in Carmel (1937), the Campbell house in Palo Alto (1932), the Hinman house in Lake Tahoe (n.d.), and the Dowsett house (1929, location unknown). The collection also includes numerous unidentified sketches.
