On December 12, 2013, the AIA Board of Directors voted unanimously to bestow the AIA Gold Medal on Julia Morgan. She is the first woman to receive this highest honor — an honor that is well deserved. The Berkeley City Club Conservancy is also proud to note that three of our board members contributed significantly to this effort: Kimberly Perette designed the nomination, Karen Fiene contributed the section on Mills College, and Karen McNeill contributed the section on the women’s movement, edited the nomination, and served as consultant.
