Series III: Personal Papers
Series IV: Jean Murray Bangs' Research Files on Greene & Greene
The series consists of the research papers of architectural historian Jean Murrary Bangs (1894-1985). Bangs was a Berkeley-trained economist who became an architectural historian of the United States Modern movement. In the 1940s, she focused her work on the rediscovery of Charles and Henry Greene's work in Southern California. Her research on Greene & Greene was published in Architectural Forum (Oct. 1948). A planned book on the firm was never completed. The series includes blueprints found by Bangs in the garage of one of the Greene brother's former home.
