Raise your hand if you have heard of Claude Oakland. OK; now:
Per the Spring 2004 Eichler Network Newsletter:
".... For many years, Boyd was Eichler's architect on the spot, customizing designs by Jones & Emmons, Anshen+Allen, and Claude Oakland to meet the demands of the clients and the site.More on John Brooks Boyd, including pictures can be found in the newsletter, available directly from the Eichler Network.
The Eichler custom homes were based either on standard Eichler tract designs or on homes specially designed by Eichler's architects for individual clients. While Boyd was rarely involved in designing the basic homes himself, at least two of his own Eichler designs were built: one in Foster City; and another in Mill Valley, near Eichler's Harbor Point development....
Born in Reno in 1931, Boyd served with the U.S. Navy's Sea Bees in the early 1950s, studied architecture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and then worked for Jones & Emmons before joining Eichler...."
If anyone has any Eichler Homes (or related) ephemera they'd like to share that hasn't been posted online, feel free to drop me a note and I'd be happy to post here!
