Making Research Fun...

Here at Castle Computing, we're making research, specifically the construction of Hearst Castle, a fun, interactive experience. In this site, you will find a collection of letters and other forms of communication between revered architect Julia Morgan and media tycoon William Randolph Hearst from the construction of Hearst Castle.

Who's Julia Morgan?

Glad you asked. Julia Morgan was the first licensed female architect in California, and built many amazing projects including Hearst Castle. To learn more about Julia Morgan or the collection, visit Kennedy Library's Julia Morgan Biography.
