Archives and Collections

Description of Collection: 

FOG's Archive mission is to collect, preserve and exhibit material that documents the history of Greystone Mansion. Materials in our collection consists of a rich and expanding historic photo archive of the property, family and The Knoll (the subsequent home of Lucy Doheny Battson). The archive collection also includes family portraits, magazine articles, maps, books, ephemera and personal family materials and objects. Greystone has been on the National register of Historic places since 1976. The land on which Greystone was built, was a gift from oil baron Edward L. Doheny Sr., the first man to discover oil in Los Angeles, to his son, Edward "Ned" Doheny. The mansion is most notable for its famous family, architect Gordon Kaufmann and its association to the USC Doheny Library as well as the Doheny Mansion at Mount St. Mary's College in Los Angeles. The Friends of Greystone is a non-profit organization founded to preserve, protect, promote and enhance the historic Greystone Mansion.
