A San Fernando Valley native, Mr. Regan has had a life-ling interest in residential architecture, in particular the great houses of the Los Angeles area. Commencing at age eight when he sketched out 'dream houses' for his friends, Mr. Regan began a collection of photographs, blueprints, and interviews with architects and original residents of noteworthy Southern California homes. Amongst Mr. Regan's books on the subject are 'Mansions of Los Angeles' (1965) and 'Stars, Mogulas, Magnates: the mansions of Beverly Hills' (1966). This book is a 2nd Edition, Volume 1 of the previous mentioned book. Mr. regan is planning additional volumes recording the history of Los Angeles area mansions and would welcome any contact that could provide photographers or other information on architecturally significant homes of the region.
