Palm Springs, CA (April 8, 2000) - The Palm Springs Desert Museum has announced that it has received a bequest from the late renowned Modernist architect, Albert Frey. The bequest, as announced by Janice Lyle, Ph.D, executive director, transfers ownership of Frey's residence, an architectural gem, to the Museum with an endowment to preserve and maintain his home in perpetuity.

Frey, whose home is a local landmark, died in November 1998 at age 95 and had been a long-time supporter of the Museum. "We're delighted that Mr. Frey thought so highly of the Museum to entrust his prized possession to us. His bequest stipulates that we maintain his home in its original state and we are very pleased to do so. We will ensure that the integrity of this architectural landmark will be preserved for future generations," said executive director Janice Lyle, Ph.D. "The Museum was privileged to call Albert our friend and we will carry out his wishes while maintaining his legacy as a true architectural visionary."
