Paul Revere Williams, FAIA
Paul Revere Williams was the first certified African-American architect west of the Mississippi, first African-American member of the American Institute of Architects and the first Black member to be inducted into the AIA's College of Fellows. During his career, Williams designed numerous homes for celebrities, as well has many public and private buildings throughout Southern California.

Spectra Company helped restore two buildings designed by Williams.
