IMHO the first letter is highly, highly suspicious. A. I have never seen FLW sign "Frank" to ANYTHING. Let's say Gene Masselink signed at Wright's direction. He would have never signed first name only, but following protocol of the time, signed FLW full name and next to it or just underneath, HIS IN...

T-W FLW Birthday + Discovery Day

Had a tremendous time at T-W today, celebrating FLW's birthday and participating in the first " Discovery Day" at T-W. This event's goal was to increase knowledge and awareness in the community. Over 1,000 people visited during a 6 hour time span. For me, it was tremendous to see just a few of the '...

In the early 90's there was a tremendous effort to document in written form and in audio and video formats, the recollections and reminisces of the fellowship. This was everyone, including those not living at Taliesin or T-W. Indira Berendston directed this action for the Archives, which were still ...

Many, many thanks David for bringing this to our attention. In all my years at T-W, I was not familiar with this interview. Since my early days, it was my good fortune to be associated with John "R" on different volunteer projects. I have directly benefited from his intelligence, good humor, selfles...

Great news from a city I lived in years ago. Lincoln Blvd is a tremendous tree lined blvd that terminates at Lake Michigan. On either side are large and small houses, all well maintained and a few deftly hidden MCM gems at the end of longer driveways. Also, great to see the Schwartz House mentioned....

25 is the most slots on a tour. I don't know what the yearly "average" tour slot count would be. I'm guessing under that - maybe 15 ? And that would be a WAG. Also, there are really only 5 months of intense activity - November to the end of March. Summer months, as you know, have very light activity...

Rood: Current Price: Standard Tour ( 90 min ) - $35.00 / Student: $25.00 / Youth 6-12 yrs: $19.00 The one-hour tour is almost extinct - as they found most visitors opted for the 90 min tour ( garden room, bedroom & OLW's "day room". I think, but could be mistaken, that Senior/Veteran discounts have ...

Because I still have a 'day' job ( ha ha ) I don't 'work' a regular schedule at T-W and usually give tours during the summer and generally help out during the holidays. However, are you planning a trip to Phoenix? If so I would be happy, if it can be arranged, to meet and give you a tour - maybe we ...

Taliesin West - Tours

A great day at T-W. Today kicks off the winter tour season. Running tours every 15 minutes with a maximum of 25 on a tour. Thanks to a great reservation system and a professional group of docents, the flow of traffic went well. The property is looking as best as it ever has. Majority of the guests w...

Origami, The return:

From NYT Style Magazine. The Origami reproductions make a return. In the early 1990's Cassina produced reproductions of the Origami Chair, somewhat faithful to the original, priced at I think, $3,500 each. Now Cassina is doing a new version ( 2.0 ?) with different colors, added cushioning and as rep...

So many twists and turns, since David and Gladys passed away. Still not a protected property, again subject to erasure. I consider myself fortunate to have toured it in both its unrestored state and after Rawlings upgrades, although I was never in favor of the landscaping or ultimate 'grand plans' f...
