George Washington Smith founded the Spanish Colonial Revival movement in California, about 100 years ago. Smith left Harvard to become a businessman and later on moved to Santa Barbara to retire.

He also influenced numerous young artists, prompting Kenny Slaught to believe that his attention to detail was unmatched.
