James F. Carberry is a journalist who began his career as a reporter for daily newspapers in California.
He worked from 1971-1981 as a staff reporter of The Wall Street Journal, where he wrote a number of articles on business and finance. Among them was a story of how executives of Mattel Co., the world's biggest toy maker, were so taken with the company’s success that they overlooked mounting internal problems that eventually resulted in millions of dollars in losses—and a loss of credibility with investors.
In 2004, James F. Carberry helped Getty Conservation Institute write “Incentives for the Preservation of Historic Homes in the City of Los Angeles," a guidebook for the city’s homeowners in using such incentives. He is also an author of Getty Conservation Institute's “The Los Angeles Historic Resource Survey Report".
