Object of My Nostalgia: Designating the Isherwood-Bachardy Residence and Studio in Los Angeles

Posted on Wed., April 21, 2021

Historic preservation consultants from Chattel, Inc. share how the Christopher Isherwood papers at The Huntington were instrumental in the designation of the Santa Monica Canyon home of writer Christopher Isherwood (1904–1986) and artist Don Bachardy as a Historic-Cultural Monument in Los Angeles. The lecture includes a pictorial tour of the residence and studio–where Bachardy still lives–and a review of the nomination process.
