PSPF board member Steven Keylon, an architectural historian and author of the book The Design of Herbert W. Burns, will present an informative and entertaining overview of Burns’ life and career. Burns’ fascinating life and multiple talents (from his early years as a lighting designer/fabricator, to stockbroker, to contractor, and finally to architectural designer) have earned him Keylon’s informal nickname “The Charismatic Chameleon.” Steven is the past president of the California Garden and Landscape History Society, and is the editor of their journal, Eden; a member of the Stewardship Council of The Cultural Landscape Foundation; and a board member of Docomomo US/SoCal.
The Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is a non-profit organization whosemission is “to educate and promote public awareness of the importance of preserving the historical resources and architecture of the city of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley area.” PSPF offers free membership as a public benefit.
