Pearl Chase - 2003 Honoree


Pearl Chase, Class of 1904, exerted great influence over the look of Santa Barbara. Along with several other prominent citizens, she advocated the strict architectural standards that we see today in much of the downtown area. The Pearl Chase Society attempts to continue her spirit as they work to preserve Miss Chase’s standards in contemporary Santa Barbara. Miss Chase was also an active and influential figure on the state and national level. Santa Barbara today represents in many ways the legacy of Miss Chase’s attention and preservation.
