Hide Profile

In December 1948 Huntington Hartford established the Huntington Hartford Foundation; its purpose was to foster community creativity in the arts through fellowships which provided subsistence, living quarters and partial supplies at the Foundation's location in Rustic Canyon, Pacific Palisades, CA; applicants for fellowships were screened by three admissions committees (literary, music and art), and in 1954 the Huntington Hartford Foundation Awards were created to honor annually persons with distinguished achievements in these fields; the Foundation closed in September 1965.
