Diane Y. Welch Retelling people's stories past and present.
A well established local historic journalist in North County San Diego, Diane Y. Welch has become renowned for both her feature profiles of artists, celebrities and notable residents as well as for her books on local history. She is recognized as the world's expert on Lilian J. Rice (1889-1938), the little known California Master Architect. Rice is credited with the design and development of the majority of the buildings in the community of Rancho Santa Fe, one of Southern California's most affluent zip codes. Diane has created a new excitement about the work of Lilian J. Rice, and her findings, based on years of solid research, now bring Rice out of the shadows of history and into the light of the future. Many will be inspired by this architect's determination to not only survive but to thrive in a male dominated profession.
