As a child growing up in San Diego, Adam Arenson was fascinated by the beautiful art and architecture of Home Savings & Loan. Upon moving back to the state in 2010, Arenson began the first book-length study of these much-loved works, working in archives, interviewing participants, and visiting as many of these locations as possible.
As he completes the research, he is glad to have opportunities to present his findings and receive more information.
