Yelland : 1966

Sacramento River Delta

On Carter - "He was a close family friend and was always great to me when I was a child. He spent a good six months helping me repaint and fix up a car in his barn when I was in high school - a very generous man with his time. He was also an eye opener to me of what an adult could be as a kid in rural (conservative) California. I remember he showed up for one of my parent's summer cocktail parties driving a Lotus he had rebuilt, and wearing a tangerine orange linen suit. He turned heads all the time."

Wynne G. Yelland grew up in a Sparks home not far from Clarksburg.
Mr. Yelland was a close friend of Sparks' and credits him with setting him on a career towards architecture. He is a founder and principal of Locus Architecture.
