That's the project number for the drawings of the space underneath the Roberts Rm. that FLW was thinking about for an archive in the floor below. It would have been interesting if work had been done on that. At least one of those drawings is reproduced in the Completed Buildings , v. 3. The Fellowsh...

Blaine Drake

According to the list by listing of those in the Fellowship done by Elizabeth Kassler in 1982, Drake was in the Fellowship until the summer of 1941. Looks like he left at the same time as the other apprentices in the Fellowship, such as Edgar Tafel, who left when FLW started requiring all of the wor...

Hillside Drafting Studio

JChoate wrote: If Susan Lawrence Dana paid for the "north wing" I guess that refers to the two galleries (Dana & Roberts) and the connecting bridge/gallery ... not the drafting studio. I hadn't realized the drafting studio was a later addition to those two rooms (if built earlier, when?) Yes. The tw...

The Roberts Room

AT TALIESIN, July l2, l934 Extensive operations at Hillside have added two new studios to the Fellowship's list of accomplishments and they have been named after two of the old Hillside Home School patrons - The Dana Gallery, named for Mrs. Susan Laurence Dana of Springfield, Illinois, who gave to ...

Cherokee Red

Steve Sikora's statement about the shades of red confirms what I've picked up on over the years, that there was no, one, Cherokee Red. At one point, I did screenshots of various reds that we call Cherokee Red & there were at least 7 different shades. Of course, as Steve Sikora noted: the exact same ...

Jacobs I floor

I had been told by someone (who was a graduate student in AH while Prof. Dennis was restoring the house) that evidence pointed toward the fact that the concrete floor had no color. The fact that it didn't have color until Prof. Dennis did the restoration is a conundrum but, man! the fact that the co...

Ansqwer to SDR's question about the date

I've seen that it's convention for any photo showing the third version of Taliesin as given the date "1925", but that's most often not the case. The photograph (of the two people under the old Porte-Cochere roof at Taliesin), is dated 1934-36. The beginning date is due to the roof on the upper left,...

T1 photo

I don't know which one you are referring to. Do you mean the 1911-12 photo taken inside the Drafting Studio looking east, with the door in the background? There is the partial wall (which I think is what you meant by the screen). If you look at the photograph on p. 81 of Building Taliesin , by Ron M...

Question 9 from JimM

Actually, looking over the space, & question 9 again, here's what we know: there's a photo (owned by Randolph Henning) taken in the Garden Court in 1915-16, looking toward the area that would become the vestibule, that definitely shows that the vestibule was not there. Then a photo in 1918 taken by ...

Questions about model

I'm looking at these, but there's lots of stuff. I might be answering questions others did, but this is the first time I've been able to look at this. Question 1, about the screened area : it's in In the Nature of Materials , fig. 174. It can be seen in the drawing in Wright Studies, v. 1 , p. 124, ...

Apology from Wright?!

I was transcribing FLW's correspondence, had some time, so I looked into the letters from him to Mies van der Rohe. In a letter that Wright wrote to Mies on Oct. 25, 1947 Wright wrote that, Somebody has told me you were hurt by remarks of mine when I came to see your New York show. …. I am con...

An Autobiography

Good to see someone didn't read the autobiography for a long time. I only read the 1932 version of it when I started to methodically read all of the volumes in the Completed Writings series (still have to go through the second half of #4 & read all of #5.

I think any answer on the Corwin/Wright connection will probably be the same as the question on Louis Sullivan's se><uality: no evidence has ever come to light so I don't think there's a definite answer.

Apology to the apology from PeterM

Thanks. I just figured everyone would freak out about the hyperlink, as is the wont of those who I see on these pages when they see those photos. I never asked Olga (or Chrese, as she was known to me) on how she thought about these things, but that was before she moved to the Pacific Northwest. Plus...
