William Alexander Griffith (1866-1940)

After twenty years of teaching at Kansas University (his home state), William Griffith visited and fell in love with Laguna Beach and made it his home. He had also taught at Washington University in St. Louis and the Academie Julian in Pruis. Initially he was a portrait painter, but after moving to Laguna Beach, he turned his attention to landscape painting.
