- Adams became established early in his career as a tapestry and stained-glass designer who could wonderfully blend art with architecture. He designed the windows for Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco's largest synagogue, in Presidio Heights. He also did the stained glass for Grace Episcopal Cathedral on Nob Hill. His tapestry works can be found locally at the de Young Museum and at San Francisco International Airport. Later in life he turned to watercolors as an artistic expression.
