Milford Zornes ('27) was one of the West Coast's preeminent watercolor artists and teachers. Known as a leader of the California Style watercolor movement, Zornes applied transparent washes of color to large sheets of paper, allowing the white to show through to define shapes.

For more than thirty years, Zornes taught watercolor workshops in China, Alaska, Mexico, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Hawaii. He also painted murals for several U.S. post offices, including the Claremont (CA) branch. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Library of Congress Collection own his works. Zornes died at 100 years old in 2008.
