WILLIAM FRANCIS CODY, FAIA (1916-1978)

Cody was born in Dayton OH. His mom Anna's passion for art and architecture influenced both William and his brother John. By 1930 the Cody family relocated to California.  Cody designed and built stage sets for school plays at Beverly Hills High School, graduating in April 1932. He graduated from Santa Monica Junior College in 1939, and in 1940 he enrolled in the College of Architecture and Fine Arts at the University of Southern California; graduating in 1942.
While attending Santa Monica Junior College, Cody worked for architects Heath Warton and Asa Hudson. In 1943 Cody worked for an Oakland based engineering firm on a Kaiser Steel plant in Fontana, California. During this year he also worked for the San Francisco firm of Blanchard, Maher, and Ward on Navy installations on Treasure Island. In 1944 he worked primarily on elementary and high school buildings in California and Arizona for Marsh, Smith, and Powell in Los Angeles. It was also in 1944 that Cody worked for Cliff May, a leading southern California building designer, on May's influential Pace-Setter House.
 

In 1945 Cody was retained to alter the Desert Inn in Palm Springs. By 1946 Cody was licensed to practice architecture in California and Arizona, and in 1946 Cody received his first independent commission for completing the Del Marcos Hotel, winning him a 1949 award by the Southern California AIA. In 1950 he converted the Thunderbird Dude Ranch into the Thunderbird Country Club. This led to many commissions for clubhouses, recreational facilities, and residential developments at Eldorado Country Club, Tamarisk Country Club, the Racquet Club, the Tennis Club, the Seven Lakes Clubhouse, and the Palm Springs Country Spa Hotel, among others in California, Arizona, Texas, Cuba, and Mexico.

When Robert P. McCulloch founded Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Cody was his major architect.  Cody also designed a corporate complex for McCulloch near LAX, the St. Theresa Catholic Church/Convent, and the Palm Springs Library, among other many projects.  Bio adapted from Wikipedia.

1945 - Desert Palms Estates, Palm Springs CA. Developed by H. H. Foster and Jimmie Fidler Model Homes. In the Historic Context Statement and Survey drafted by the city of Palm Springs in 2015, Desert Palms Estates was developed by Paul Belding and Russell Garner in 1946. 

Cody was not involved until 1950 when developer Jack Meiselman approached him to design a series of 3 bed/2 bath house for a cluster of parcels within the tract. Surviving plans indicate two plans with three elevations for each plan, with a total of 6 designs. The appear to be bordered by Park Drive to the north, McManus to the south, Sunset Way to the east, and other tract parcels to the west. Archival documentation is incomplete. No mention of H. H. Foster or Jimmie Fidler, yet in the newspaper drawing, it shows their names and a drawing of a spec house that is already open at the corner of Cerritos and Park, which is within the development. Perhaps there were more developers working in the same area. None of the houses appear to be the same as in his drawing in the newspaper. Comparisons indicate the following addresses, and additional parcels may have been included. Build dates range from 1954 to 1966. Needs verification.
