SUMMARY
The 1920 Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Mansion is located at 674 Crenshaw Boulevard just
south of Wilshire Boulevard. It was designed and constructed by Harry Hayden Whiteley (18901970) for Mrs. M. B. Cosby (Adele), the daughter of Gas Company Vice President Champ
Shepherd Vance. Records indicate that development of the property was for purposes of
investment, one of several the Cosby family made on Crenshaw Boulevard.
H. H. Whiteley studied drafting and engineering in Los Angeles and graduated from the
University of Southern California with a degree in engineering in 1924. He previously had
served as the chief draftsman for Twentieth Century Fox in 1920, the same year he worked on
the Boulevard Heights Mansion. Whiteley designed many residences and some commercial
buildings in Los Angeles and his work was featured in several publications including Home and
Garden and the Western Architect. He was known for use of the Spanish and Mediterranean
Revival styles. Whiteley spent part of his career working with prominent architects Paul Revere
Williams, Frank M. Tyler, and Adrian Wilson. Later, Whiteley relocated to Las Vegas where he
worked on a number of projects including the original Las Vegas Convention Center, built in
1958, which was an example of his work in the Modern style.
The Mediterranean Revival, two-story house retains many of its original features including
arched wooden multi-lite windows, a rounded molded entryway, engaged corkscrew columns,
leaded glass windows, and stucco cladding. The main entrance of the house faces north, away
from Crenshaw Boulevard, and has a brick patio. The house has a mixed roof system with a
gabled front portion, a shed roof over the entry and foyer, and a flat parapet roof to the north
and rear. The mixed roof form and two-story massing create an asymmetrical and multi-faced
front elevation.
The exterior of the house is mostly intact. The limited alterations include removal of the Spanish
clay tile roofing, addition of security bars, demolition of the garage, and removal of some of the
attic vents.
CRITERIA
The criterion is the Cultural Heritage Ordinance which defines a historical or cultural monument
as any site (including significant trees or other plant life located thereon) building or structure of
particular historic or cultural significance to the City of Los Angeles, such as historic structures
or sites in which the broad cultural, economic, or social history of the nation, State or community
is reflected or exemplified, or which are identified with historic personages or with important
events in the main currents of national, State or local history or which embody the distinguishing
characteristics of an architectural type specimen, inherently valuable for a study of a period style
or method of construction, or a notable work of a master builder, designer or architect whose
individual genius influenced his age.
FINDINGS
Based on the facts set forth in the summary and application, the Commission determines that
the application is complete and that the property may be significant enough to warrant further
investigation as a potential Historic-Cultural Monument.

Significance:
The Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Mansion is significant as a fully intact example of the work of a significant master architect, H.
H. Whiteley. This project is of a particular style popular in the 1920s, arguably the most important period in the development of Los
Angeles.
'
The 1962 AlA Historical Directory of Architects; gives the following information about Harry Hayden Whiteley:
Mr. Whitely joined the Las Vegas chapter of the AlA in 1944. His education is stated as "Complete Course in the I. C. S (International
Correspondence School)." I.C.S offered courses in every subject, including architectural draftsmanship, advanced math and
engineering. He was tutored at the University of Southern California for two years and graduated in 1924 with a degree in
engineering. In 1920, he was chief draftsman for 20'h Century Fox. He worked in Los Angeles with Paul Revere Williams, Frank Tyler
and Adrian Wilson, whose projects include the Schoenberg Center at USC and the Los Angeles County Courthouse. Mr. Whitely
continued to work with Williams and Wilson in Las Vegas later in their careers; with Wilson on the Las Vegas Convention Center in
1958 and with Williams on a project for shops and offices in 1960. Whiteley's listed fields of expertise included residential,
commercial, industrial, religious, educational, health facilities, penal institutions, public buildings, military structures,
communications, and landscape design.
Harry Hayden Whiteley was born in Bakersfield in 1890. ;; By 1920, after military service in World War
1, ;;;
H. H. Whitely was already an
established Los Angeles architect, drawing attention and praise for his distinctive style. Earliest references to his work appear in
1917iv, which feature his designs for rustic cabins in Home and Garden, Vol. 36, August, 1917.
The Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Mansion was designed and constructed in 1920 by Harry Hayden Whiteley (1890-1970) for
Mrs. M . B. Cosby (Adele), the daughter of Gas Company vice-president Champ Shepherd Vance. Even at this young age, Whiteley
was already very successful and becoming known for his unique interpretation of Spanish and Mediterranean architecture. There is
no evidence that Mrs. Cosby ever lived at this address, and this project was probably part of the speculative post WWI building
boom in the immediate area. Mrs. Cosby had purchased the lot in October 1913 from W. C. Magev, who was listed as the seller in
several transactions on Crenshaw at the same time. This is further indication that this was an investment for the Cosby family.
Mr. Whiteley personally signed the permit for 674 Crenshaw on October 20, 1920, and is identified as the architect and contractor.
Whitely moved his office from th e Story Building earlier that same year ."; His address on the permit is listed as 520 S. Western vii, the
location of his new offices built in March of 1920. The innovative design and elegant interiors of his new offices were the subject of a
feature article in The Western Architect, March 1920viii. This Western office was moved to 601 Wilcox in 1923, only three years later,
for the McDonnell family, who founded the Urban Military Academy in 1905, later known as the Black-Foxe Mil itary Academy. This
house remains fully intact, and while smaller in scale, shares many of the characteristic design elements of the Boulevard Heights
H.H. Whiteley Mansion : similar massing, low roof pitch, distinctive classic fenestration, and use of architectural details and materials,
such as Palladian windows, stucco ornamentation, careful attention to the placement and design of smaller windows and vents, etc.
In the mid-1920s through the 1930s a series of auction notices in the Los Angeles Times indicate that 674 Crenshaw was occupied by
the Ruth L. Wagner family, apparently beset with personal and financial difficulties, including the death of 20-year-old William
Donald Wagner, the youngest son, in 1932.
Through the following decades, the Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Mansion underwent a series of ups and downs that continue to
this day. In the late 1950s, the Getty family, operating as Tidewater Oil , were owners of a large number of parcels in the immediate
area (including the current home of the Mayor) and were intending to upzone the entire stretch of Wilshire to a sky-scraper district,
a movement that began in the early 1920s with the construction of the Los Altos Apartments. In 1957, Tidewater cleared the lot of a
derelict mansion (site of the movie " Sunset Boulevard") on the north side of Wilshire and built a new six-story $10,000,000
corporate headquarters now known locally as "The Harbor Building," completed in 1958. In 1963 Tidewater Oil appears on permits;'
as the owner of Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Mansion, which they converted to a " Church" and expanded with an addition . A
highway dedication is indicated on the permit. Plans for the demise of the H.H. Whiteley Mansion seemed imminent. However,
resident protests against rezonin g the Wilshire corridor, spurred by the sheer mass of the new Tidewater Headquarters, stopped the
Gettys' plans, and many of the parcels they had acquired were sold. In a 1967 Certificate of Occupancy, 674 Crenshaw underwent
yet another change of use as an "Adu lt School." x With the repeated widening of Crenshaw and its evolution from a minor street to a
major thoroughfare, conditions continued to deteriorate, and single family homes were replaced with cottage businesses, low-cost
apartments, and a variety of board-and-care facilit ies. 674 Crenshaw, despite its auspicious beginnings, was not spared. Today it is
currently used as such a board and care facility, and is a likely target for mu lti-family development.
Whitely also designed the Pacific Military Academy in Culver City (demolished), the Cheviot Hills Country Club (demolished), as well
as an impressive list of projects in Southwest Builder and Contractor. From 1921 alone, the following list of projects appeared!;
•
Residence, Canyon Drive and Chaparral Street, Brentwood, for Dr. Edward B. Jones
•
Spanish Flats, Martel St. and Hollywood Blvd ., for Evangeline C. Smith
•
Country Club Building for Sunset Canyon Country Club, Burbank

•
Tenement House and Garage, Long Beach, for Mrs. Evangeline C. Smith
•

•

In the 1930s, as expected, Mr. Whiteley's large commissions tapered off. He relocated and continued his career in San Diego and
elsewhere outside of Los Angeles. In 1942, at age 52, he re -enlisted in the U.S. Army, listing his address as Las Vegas and his
employer as McNeil Construction Company, while his wife Grace remained in California. Mr. Whiteley's style evolved and flourished
with the times, and his later work incl uded Googie style restaurants, massive hotels, and even a convention centerxiv. Mr. Whiteley's
Las Vegas career flourishedxv, and included a wide variety of projects, including a jail, hospitals, churches and even an amusement
park:
•
City of Las Vegas Rehabilitation Farm
•
Las Vegas City Jail. [ca. 1950s]
•
Diagnostic Out-Patient Hospital Building, Southern Nevada Memorial Hospital, Las Vegas
•

•
Fun-Land Amusement park, Las Vegas, Nevada. (Mr . Sam Pearlstein)
•
Automotive Center (Ross Management Corp. , owner), Arville and Desert Inn Rd. Las Vegas.
•

Mr. Whitley's largest and most impressive project was the design for the Clark County Convention Center in Las Vegas, 1958, as
Consulting Architect for Adrian Wilson and Associates, sadly no longer recognizable as the building Whiteley designed . Mr.
Whitely continued his career in Las Vegas until his death in 1970. His archives are retained by University of Nevada Las Vegas.
Description:
The Boulevard Heights H.H. Whiteley Man sion is in the Mediterranean Revival style ..It is two stories, clad in stucco.
There are two roof forms: flat and gabled with a low pitch.
The overall plan is irregular and asymmetrical. The front of the house has three sections:
•
The northernmost side of the front section is set back approximately 10' from the front fa~ade of the
structure. It has a flat roof, and is roughly shaped like a shoe-box on its side, the longest axis extending
east far toward the rear property line. The first floor of this section has Palladian French doors with
arched tops and multiple panes which include twisted spiral columns with decorative capitals between
the three window elements. The second floor has a pair of arched casement windows with an original iron
balconette.
•
The southernmost section has a front-gable roof and represents the fa<;:ade close st to the front property
line. It has a projecting front section which steps back symmetrically approximately 9" on the left and
right, articulating the mass. The first floor windows are French doors in groups of four; an iron balconette
is obscured by a low hedge. The second floor windows feature a bowed top and specialty multi-pane
casements in groups of four with curved muntins following the contour of the top; the center elements
consist of a pair which open from the center, with the remaining two serving as fl anking casements. The
second story windows retain their original balconette. A small round decorative attic vent is centered
under the gable's apex .
•
The center section continues under the northern side of the gabled left section, and is slightly recessed.
The front windows are arched, in a group of three, approximately 1' wide and over 7' tall, staggered at
approximately 30" from the horizontal. Each panel is framed in wood and glazed in leaded art glass with a
series of colored glass rectangles framed with strips of glass, suggesting a plaid pattern; a bilaterally
symmetrical shield motif in colored glass is centered about Y. of the distance from the top of each
window. The rightmost panel is missing its bottom section, which has been replac ed with a plain glass
panel framed in metal. The front entry is perpendicular to the front fa<;:ade,-facing north toward the
driveway, and features an arch topped wooden door, painted white with a decorative molded masonry
surround with an Italian Renaissance Revival theme and a small "speak-easy" brass grill . The lock
hardware is original. When facing the door, it is located to the left, and a recessed arched window is to
the right. A round window is above, centered on the building.
Alterations to this property on the street-visible facades are few and minor. Comparing it to the historic
photo from ca. 1920, a small round attic vent on the left fa<;:ade is missing, it no longer has a clay tile
roof, and the repair to the rightmost stained glass window appear to be the only modifications. Many of
the first floor windows have security bars. However the overall appearance remains largely unchanged .
The current use of the building precludes inspection of the interior and all facades not visible from the
public right-of-way. Aerial photos show that the backyard has asphalt paving. There appears to be a
large gable-shaped skylight in the center of the roof. The flat area of the roof is covered in gray roll
mineral-surface roofing. A large flat area of the right section appears to be an addition to the rear.
