"Merle Armitage, one of America's leading advocates of modern culture, collected with the same zest he demonstrated in other aspects of his remarkable life. An avant-garde book designer, he also was the local administrator of various federal art projects and one of the country's most successful theater impresarios. Settling in Los Angeles in 1921, Armitage founded the Los Angeles Grand Opera Association and later managed the Philharmonic Auditorium, bringing Martha Graham and Leopold Stokowski here and staging the first L. A. Performance of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess."
