Re: Harold Turner

I don't believe that I have ever seen a photograph of Mr. Turner himself. Does anyone have one?

Re: Article on Wright Houses in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan

I can share an interesting sidenote that I found about Ina Morriss Harper, which did not make it into the final published article: Harper's unique middle name – with two S's – was her paternal grandmother's maiden name. Her last name raises a certain curiosity as well, in light of her Alabama roots....

Roderick: Scott does not own the Anthony house anymore. I am not certain when he and Eileen sold, but last I knew, they owned another piece of midcentury architecture not too far away.

Re: Article on Wright Houses in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan

SDR: Thank you. Yes, do not be thrown by the "2016" heading (which should probably say "2016 to present"). It is indeed the January-February 2021 issue. DRN: The article does indeed end with a discussion of the ill-fated Snowflake Motel, which, unlike the Wright houses, no longer graces Southwest Mi...

Article on Wright Houses in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan

I am delighted to report that the latest edition of Michigan History Magazine includes my article on the three Wright-designed houses in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan, and the community leaders who were his clients -- Howard Anthony, Ina Morriss Harper, and Carl Schultz -- all of whom sadly...

Artist Donald J. Anderson and FLLW

I have found reference to the late Chicago-based artist Donald J. Anderson, a native of Southwest Michigan, having one or more of his works purchased by FLLW (perhaps at an exhibition in St. Joseph, Michigan, and perhaps for display in a FLLW house) and a friendship developing therefrom. Can anyone ...

I should know this, but why is the Allen House called the Allen-Lambe House? Who was Lambe?

Although my handle is still "in DC," I have been living in St. Joseph, Michigan, near where I grew up, for the past 5 years. I drive by the Harper House every now and again just to drink in the beauty -- and it's worth turning away from the majesty of Lake Michigan to do it! According to the county ...

K.C. DeRhodes in a Supporting Role

In today's South Bend (IN) Tribune, the photo accompanying an article on the city's new snow ordinance shows Tom Miller shoveling his driveway on West Washington Avenue...and a familiar house behind him: http://www.southbendtribune.com/article ... /1011/News

W.L. Fuller

Does anyone know anything about W.L. Fuller, for whom FLLW designed the house in Pass Christian, MS, which was destroyed by Hurricane Camille in 1969? I am curious whether he is Warren L. Fuller, Sr., who created W.L. Fuller, Inc. If so, that would lead to a remarkably sad coincidence: his son, Warr...

RE: Textile Block DIY

A workshop would be great fun and informative. I often wonder whether, in the intervening 50 years, advances in construction and production techniques would allow us to iron out the problems previously encountered with textile block construction and make it a viable approach now.
