The Friends of the California Archives invites you to the California State Archives Speakers Series for a presentation by Bruce A. Marwick on the work of Alfred Eichler, an architect for nearly four decades in the California State Division of Architecture, designer of the Tower Bridge, and accomplished artist. The talk, entitled “Alfred Eichler: The Life of an Exceptional Architect and Watercolor Painter,” will explore these two bodies of work and what they reveal about his life. It will also examine Eichler’s evolution as an architect, from the Beaux Arts drawings of his youth to the Mid-Century Modern buildings he designed for the Capitol Mall in the 1950s.
Bruce A. Marwick is a Board Member of the Sacramento History Alliance and former Vice President for the Sacramento Art Deco Society. He spent many years as a marketing and graphic design professional in Los Angeles and Sacramento. His interest in Alfred Eichler stems from a presentation he created in 2017 titled, “Three Art Deco Artisans of Sacramento, Taliabue, Polifka and Eichler.”
