Description
Title supplied by cataloger.; Herman J. Schultheis was born in Aachen, Germany in 1900, and immigrated to the United States in the mid-1920s after obtaining a Ph.D. in mechanical and electrical engineering. He married Ethel Wisloh in 1936, and the pair moved to Los Angeles the following year. He worked in the film industry from the late 1930s to the mid-1940s, most notably on the animated features Fantasia and Pinocchio. His detailed notebook, documenting the special effects for Fantasia, is the subject of a 14-minute short-subject included on the film's DVD. In 1949, he started employment with Librascope as a patent engineer. Schultheis was an avid amateur photographer who traveled the world with his cameras. It was on one of these photographic exhibitions in 1955 that he disappeared in the jungles of Guatemala. His remains were discovered 18 months later. The digitized portion of this collection represents the images Schultheis took of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities after he relocated to the area in 1937.
Claude Beelman, Anthony B. Heinsbergen and Willard White designed the 1925 Romanesque and Gothicstyle Heinsbergen Decorating Company Building located at 7415-7427 Beverly Boulevard, which was designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #275 in 1984. It was also listed on the National Register of Historic places as building #84000873 the same year.
This view of the northeast corner of Beverly Boulevard and Vista Street in the Fairfax District includes Carroll Tye Co. at 7427 Beverly Boulevard.
