Howard A. Friedman was born in New York City in 1919. In 1949, he graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in architecture. After several years with San Francisco architecture firms, in 1953 he formed his own practice, which in 1967 became Howard A. Friedman and Associates. Friedman worked as an architect and planner until 1982. During 35 years of practice, Howard's firm compiled a distinguished record of nationally recognized designs, with projects in Northern California, Nevada, Georgia, Texas, Mexico, France, Holland, and Spain. In 1980 he was appointed Professor in the Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley. He retired from private practice in 1984, in part to devote more time to teaching and academic affairs. The bulk of this collection consists of photographs documenting Howard Friedman's architectural work. Materials relating to Friedman's time as faculty at UC Berkeley make up the remainder of the collection
