2237 Carleton, Berkeley

Charles W Woodworth was the founder of the entomology department at UC Berkeley and is also credited as one of the developers of the outpost that would later become UC Davis. But Woodworth was not a man whose interests were limited to insects. He seems to have had a number of talents including apparently, home design.

The home that Woodworth designed for his family on Carleton Street is enormous and it is simply overflowing with high board and batten paneling, leaded glass, and numerous built-ins. It also has a great clinker brick chimney and a nice variety of period light fixtures. All in all, it may be the nicest entomologist-designed home we have ever seen.
