You might try looking for a book written back in the 50's (56 if I remember) "house of your dreams". There were a couple of deans in the architecture school, Kirkpatrick and Gallion. Author is one of them with photography by Julius Schulman. I don't know if they themselves studied with FLW, but it might be a nice point to start from. Its a generally good document to innovative custom 50's residential with a predominance of post and beam, and blending of interior space with exterior vistas thru a great blending of plate glass walls. I grew up in one of their joint efforts in PVE. Great stuff that has held the test of time.
Also Lloyd Wright was active in the Los Angeles area in the 50's and 60's. The local chapter of the AIA might have information on his locations to assist in connecting the potential dots of style, student and project. LW's work used lots of fiberglass shading eaves/overhangs (signature style) that looked a bit like boat prows, and local stone in addition to post and beam. Two residences are the (Dr.)Moore residence in lower Malaga Cove on Paseo del Mar and another (name ?) across from the Palos Verdes Country Club. Wayfayers Chapel is also a piece of his work in Portuguese Bend (Rancho Palos Verdes).
