Can any one help me or point me in the right direction to research the architect of Record, Niel Johnson or more information about the home.

In June of 2004, I purchased a mid-Century Home in Los Feliz Hills which is adjacent to Griffith Park in the City of Los Angeles. The house was built in 1960. The home is approx. 2400sq ft. designed with Steel post and beams with expansive Floor to Ceiling Glass, steel girder roofing system, entrance with exposed aggregate and has large overhangs like the Stahl Case Study house that Pierre Koenig designed, which was also built in 1960. The floor plan is an L shaped 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath home with open orientation to the pool and outstanding southern views toward the city of Los Angeles. The kitchen, dinning and living room are cantilevered over the slopping hillside lot, with the Bedrooms slabbed to the earth.

I was told by the California State Board of Architects that Neil Johnson is deceased and would have been 82 in 1960. I would like to know more about the architect as well as the home. Any help would be appreciated.
