Cate Bainton was a huge contributor to HALS Northern California and a major component of what you still see now on these pages. Not only did she volunteer to create and maintain the chapter’s website (which has since been archived and integrated into this one), she created and organized the HALS documentation spreadsheet. When we first began, she received the list of site names and then researched everything that would be needed and entered it into a spreadsheet, providing the name, location, owner and a short description of the site with year of construction and notes about the designer. For the past 17 years she had maintained this spreadsheet and added HALS numbers as documentation when completed. Read Cate’s entire bio here.
