MILO BAUGHMAN \bȯf-man\ (1923-2003) As a young man living in Long Beach, California, Milo demonstrated a high-spirited, creative flair, especially for the visual arts. When he was thirteen, his parents decided to build a house. So Milo’s parents challenged him to develop an architectural plan for the interior and exterior of the home.

After the war, he attended California Institute for the Arts, majoring in Product and Architectural Design.Read More
