Descended from Scottish and Irish ancestors, David Berry Gamble was a second-generation member of the Procter & Gamble Company in Cincinnati, and had retired from active work in 1895. With his wife, Mary Huggins Gamble, they began to spend winters in Pasadena, residing in the area’s resort hotels. By 1907, the couple had decided to build a permanent home in Pasadena. In June of that year, they bought a lot on the short, private street, Westmoreland Place, passing up the more fashionable addresses on Orange Grove, known at that time as “Millionaires’ Row.” The house remained in the Gamble family until 1966, when it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture.
