J. B. Muns has a Taliesin publication: "The New Frontier, Broadacre City" Vol. 1, 1940, a 38-page pamphlet, alas $450.
MOMA in New York currently has a restored version of the Broadacre City model on display. Michael Hession went down there to snap a few pictures, seen throughout this post. The exhibition closes June 1, 2014.

There are several early houses by Kahn on the USmodernist page that I've not seen before. I particularly like the Morton and Lenore Weiss house of 1950.
Sadly, the house is now hanging by a thread. It was acquired by a realtor about 20 years ago after the Weiss’ passed away. The house is on a notably large parcel of land very convenient to a brand new hospital. The realtor seems to want to develop the property and laughably proposed at a hearing that he would preserve the house by recycling its stone masonry for the veneer masonry on whatever buildings would be constructed on the site. A desk from the house was sold at auction a year or two ago.
