    Significance Statement
    Research indicates that this was the home of German writer Emil Ludwig from 1940 to 1945. It is the only property associated with him in Los Angeles; however, it was not a particularly productive period in his life as a writer. Ludwig was known for his biographies of Goethe (1920), Bismarck (1924) and Jesus (1928), which were widely translated. After World War II, he moved to Switzerland, where he lived until he died in 1948.
