Oral History with Inge Horton: Finding a Place in the World
Sunday, January 28, 2018 • Gerlind Institute for Cultural Studies
Inge Schaefer Horton was born in Hannover, Germany, and grew up in Hamburg and North Rhine-Westphalia during, and after, World War II.
After graduation, Inge studied architecture at the Technical Universities of Hannover and Berlin, where approximately 10% of students were women. After graduating as a Diplom Ingenieur in 1965, Inge worked at the TU Berlin as a Research Associate, and wrote her first book, Early Modern Architecture in Berlin.
Her marriage to U.S. American engineer, Marvin Horton, led them to live in Italy and Saudi Arabia, before settling in the United States in 1969. As a re-entry student, with two young daughters, she earned a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning at the UC Berkeley. Inge worked as a city planner with a private company and the planning departments of the cities of San Jose and San Francisco.
After retiring, Inge pursued her passion for researching the history of women architects, and published Early Women Architects of the San Francisco Bay Area - The Lives and Work of Fifty Professionals, 1890-1951, in 2010. Living in San Francisco and traveling to Europe and Asia bring her great pleasure.

Our Oral History Series!
2017 marked the tenth anniversary
of the GICS
Oral History Series, which has
become the touchstone of our community
programs. It grew from Dr. Gerlind’s
passion for interviewing Holocaust
survivors whose stories were at risk
of being lost. Inspired by their lives,
the Gerlind Institute continues to
bring unforgettable speakers from in
and outside our Bay Area community.
We have witnessed their voices and
stories, and have been transformed.
We are incredibly grateful to every
speaker, co-sponsor, and audience participant
from the past ten years!
Through the dedicated volunteer
work of the Gerlind Institute's team, especially JB, Aaron Woeste, Catherine Norman,
and many others, GICS has been able to present 34
Oral Histories since 2007—no small
feat for a grassroots organization such
as ours, which relies completely on community
Despite all the work that
goes into organizing each event, admission remains
accessible, as we want everyone to participate.
We turn no one away for lack of funds. The Series
is primarily funded through income from
the GICS teaching
program, memberships, and
with the generosity of volunteers, participants
of whom have donated their honoraria—we
have been unable to sustain our Series.
We are calling on you, our community,
to support our Series through your generosity,
as we hope you benefit directly, or indirectly,
through Gerlind Institute’s
educational services. Please help secure
History Series' sustainability by becoming
a GICS member in 2018. Visit www.gerlindinstitute.org/membership.html,
here. You can also make a tax-deductible
donation. Visit www.gerlindinstitute.org/donate.html,
or click here.
Your act of generosity, whether large or
small, will build fiscal stability and enable us to create more
of this unique programming.
We will apply your donation
to the costs of our upcoming events.
We need your support to ensure the survival of
this one-of-a-kind program.
I am grateful for any amount you
are kindly willing to give and your continued support as
a GICS community member! We look forward to welcoming you to an
