Donald E. Hendrickson – Art Jury President

A native Californian, Don was born in Glendale but grew up in San Bernadino. After graduation from UC Berkeley in 1951 with a degree in architecture, he worked as an interior design engineer with Douglas Aircraft Co. in Santa Monica.

In 1957, he joined the architectural firm of Quigley and Clark in Malaga Cove Plaza. In 1960, he became partner of Clark, Hendrickson and Knox AIA, and from 1965 to 1977 he was a partner in the firm of Hendrickson and Knox AIA. The firm name changed to Donald E. Hendrickson AIA after the loss of his partner Bob Knox in an airline crash in the Canary Islands in March of 1977.

Semi-retirement from active practice came in 1997 after 40 years. During this time, he designed numerous residences, commercial projects, school buildings, and L.A. County buildings, not to mention residential additions and remodels.

Don, a PVE resident since 1960, was a planning commissioner from 1966 to 1978. He has been a member of the Art Jury since 1985, becoming president in 2000. He has belonged to the American Institute of Architects since 1963, and is now “member emeritus.” As president of the Art Jury, Don’s goal is to maintain the quality of design that has been adhered to by the Art Juries of recent years. Also, every effort will continue to be made to adhere to the intent of deed restrictions.
