Architects Charles and Henry Greene had a largely Victorian-era clientele when they began their careers at the end of the 19th century in Pasadena, California. As the new century dawned and design reform took firm hold, the Greenes attracted sophisticated patrons who found themselves persuaded by the thoughtful and capable brothers to embrace the new Arts & Crafts aesthetic.

How the Greenes balanced tradition with a view to the future is the story of the particular genius of Greene & Greene. Edward “Ted” Bosley is James N.
