Our Heritage Press to Publish Second Book

Cover of the upcoming Lilian J. Rice book to be published by Our Heritage Press

SOHO is pleased to announce that its second book will be published next spring. Author and local historian, Diane Y. Welch, the leading expert on the life and work of architect Lilian Jeannette Rice, has produced the first ever monograph on this Southern California Master Architect. It will be published by Our Heritage Press and is slated for release in July 2009.

Several years of research on Rice have already been undertaken by Welch, who has discovered many breakthrough facts about the often misunderstood female architect who not only survived but thrived in the male dominated profession of architecture during the years of the Great Depression. The book includes a detailed biography of Rice, vintage and current photographs, a thorough listing of Rice's body of work, in depth scholarly notes, and a concise bibliography.

Welch would love to include your contributions to the book and welcomes the involvement of interns who would receive academic credit for their time and efforts. If you have verified information on Rice, or own photographs and ephemera pertaining to her that you would like to share, or would like to find out more about how you may support the book, please visit or email Welch at
