Architectural History Tour of the Philosophical Research Society with Ann Burckle

April 20 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Join us for a 45 min. tour, hosted by Ann Burckle, where you’ll (literally) peer behind the curtains!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the architectural history (and some of the hidden mysteries) of The Philosophical Research Society’s landmark buildings – who was Robert Stacy Judd, the original architect of PRS? what was located at Los Feliz and Griffith Park boulevards before PRS was built in the mid-1930s? where were books printed on site at PRS in the 1940s and 1950s? – this is your opportunity. Join us for a 45 min. tour, hosted by Ann Burckle, where you’ll (literally) peer behind the curtains, to get a rare peek into Manly P. Hall’s office with its gorgeous antique Buddhist shrine, or (if you’re lucky) learn which room holds the hidden closet at PRS!
