William Carey Campus to become EF Boarding School

McGavran Hall
In April, William Carey International University sold its fifteen-acre campus at 539 E. Howard St. to Education First (EF), a large private international education company. The new owner plans to establish an EF Academy International Boarding School at this location. On September 17, the City Council received information on EF's plans and responded very favorably, overall. Prior to the hearing, Pasadena Heritage submitted a letter to the Council expressing support for the project, as proposed at this early planning phase, and offered a few recommendations.

Pasadena Heritage considers it most fortunate that EF purchased the entire campus and will continue using it for educational purposes. We met twice this year with EF representatives and are pleased with their vision for the campus which contains several historic buildings that appear individually eligible for local Landmark designation, most notably McGavran Hall, a 1930 Spanish Colonial Revival educational building that faces E. Howard St. and features a clock tower. We are especially encouraged by EF's plans to retain and rehabilitate the historic buildings, some of which are deteriorating.

We understand that EF will demolish three existing buildings and replace them with a dormitory, and for safety reasons, enclose the campus with a perimeter fence. In our letter to the Council, which was shared with EF, we noted that the buildings proposed for demolition do not appear to be historic but urged further evaluation. We also recommended a fence design that respects the character of the campus and surrounding neighborhood and keeps the green spaces along Howard St. open to the public. The project will go through the City's review process, and we will provide updates as we learn more.

Pasadena Heritage Discover Madison House in 1976 Film!

This summer, Pasadena Heritage staff discovered that the Madison House, bequeathed to us by the Madison family and used as our offices, made an appearance in Goodbye, Norma Jean. This 1976 film by Larry Buchanan is based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, played by Mistella "Misty" Rowe. The film opens with a scene depicting the Madison House as a foster home, one of many that Monroe spent her
childhood in. Both the exterior and interior of the home are captured in the film, and Pasadena Heritage staff were amused by what has and has not changed since 1976! Many of the Madisons' possessions remain, as they were donated to us along with the home.

The Madison House has had a long history and many different owners, the Madisons being the last. It was originally designed by Harry
Ridgeway, one of Pasadena's first recognized professional architects, and built in 1883 by contractor J. S. Blick for $3,500. The original owners were James H. Cambell, Sr., a retiree, and Caroline "Carrie" Cambell. Both were prominent in the local temperance movement. Their son, James Cambell, Jr., lived in a Ridgeway-designed home next door, built at the same time. 

(At the time of this writing, Goodbye, Norma Jean can be viewed on Amazon Prime. Please note that the film contains some nudity and violence and is only suitable for mature audiences.)

Future of Fuller Theological Seminary Remains Pending

The 1904 Behlow House, a contributor to the Ford Place Historic Distrct
In May, Fuller Theological Seminary announced the sale of its 13-acre Pasadena campus, its home since 1947, and said it plans to relocate to Pomona. The multidenominational evangelical graduate institution's campus includes the Ford Place Historic District, open space, and various institutional, multi-family residential, and office buildings.

We understand that Fuller has retained Los Angeles-based commercial real estate services and investment firm CBRE Group, Inc. to market the campus, which will be sold as various separate property groupings, and that the deadline for offers is October 26.
