Note
Born in Norway, Ragnar Qvale (1915-2001) studied architecture at the University of Washington and went on to become an actor after being discovered while a ski instructor in Sun Valley Idaho by Darryl Zanuck. Service in World War II cut short his movie career. He formed the architectural firm Ragnar C. Qvale and Associates, Pasadena, California, whose projects included the Sahara Hotel, Las Vegas,Nevada, and Hughes research buildings; laboratories in Malibu, California. Qvale was also involved in preservation with restoration projects such as the Title Insurance & Trust Buidling, Spring Street, Los Angeles, California. The Stein-Oroweat Bakers, Inc., building, nearby the Riviera Motors plant, was constructed in Beaverton after Stadium Freeway construction forced Stein's Bakery to move from its location at 1510 Northwest 17th Avenue, Portland.
