Can anyone tell me what the legal restrictions on divorce were in Illinois circa 1908-1909, when Wright was seeking one? When were they relaxed?

Thanks, SDR! The "elongated" drawing I saw was the initial remodeling (or "remodel" as people insist on calling it these days).

There seems to be one photo missing, a variation on Plate 1 that shows two children under the port cochere, one on a horse. I think they could be the Cheney children, who visited in August.

OMG this is so cheesy, it makes me cringe. They get the sequence of killing events all wrong. (Mamah and the children are on the porch off the living room, the others at the other end of the house.) M ...

Wright did include theaters/concert halls in his various plans for Monona Terrace in Madison, WI. Those plans were all blocked in 1954. In 1968, William Wesley Peters proposed this Madison Civic Audit ...

Here's an even wider version of that photo, showing the piano and other details. I think the tall screens standing folded are Japanese. http://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee488/Ron_McCrea/Puppet%20wi ...

Don't forget the Puppet Theatre for Llewellyn, designed 1910-1911 and seen here at Taliesin in the fall of 1911 in this Taylor Wooley Photo. See my book, "Building Taliesin," for more detail ...

Two things strike me: 1. Olgivanna Lloyd Wright's name does not appear in the program, although she is the moving force. FLLW does the introduction himself. 2. "Polly Lockhart" became France ...
