Burned-out Broadway Federal Savings Building

Williams' professional records lost

Williams' business records (letters, drawings, photographs) are stored at the headquarters of Broadway Federal Savings in Watts. Williams renovated and repurposed this former Woolworth's building in 1954 for the bank. During "the turmoil and civil unrest that rocked Los Angeles" in the aftermath of the jury's verdict in the Rodney King case, the building and all contents are burned.
