Architect Myron Hunt, an early member of the Chicago based Prairie School, moved to Los Angeles in 1903 where he devoted his life to creating his most prolific and significant body of work. The important role he played in the architectural development of Southern California includes Pasadena landmarks: The Rose Bowl, the home of Henry and Arabella Huntington (today the main Art Gallery at the Huntington Library), Caltech, and Central Branch of the Pasadena Public Library. Hunt's influence can be seen throughout Pasadena. The photograph archive of the Pasadena Public Library, Pasadena Museum of History, and the Pasaden City College are open to the public.

Myron Hunt is a curated digital exhibition featuring photographs and objects from the partners of Pasadena Digital History Collaboration. The PDHC database currently contains over 20,000 records related to Pasadena’s history. To view and search our entire collection, please visit us at
