list of FLLW apprentices

Post by classic form »

Hello, I have come to this forum with a request after searching everywhere for a list with no luck. I am looking in particular for an architect named Gordon Chadwick. I have read that he was an apprentice of FLLW. Can anyone direct me to a list or have any ideas on how to verify? Thanks.

A call to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation's William Wesley Peters Library at Taliesin West would be a good source.

Also, the following is a link to a group of former Wright apprentices that put out a newsletter which in issues #5 and #6 contained a list of former apprentices. #5 contains the list from 1930's through the 1950's, and #6 covers the 1960's through the 1990's.

Though not listed in MidGlen's list, the name Gordon Chadwick is familiar to me. He was named by a docent at the Pope-Leighey house as the apprentice who oversaw construction of the Loren Pope house in VA and the Euchtman house in MD. He is also mentioned in former apprentice Curtis Besinger's book "Working With Mr. Wright, What it Was Like".



Hope this helps.

I have a copy of the list of Taliesin Apprentices that Carnegie-Mellon University compiled a few years ago. Indeed, Gordon Chadwick does appear on that list.

Thank you all for your replys both public and private. Using your leads I have been able to gain a bit of information on Mr. Chadwick. According to an interview with Loren Pope by Steven M. Reiss Chadwick was the Taliesin apprentice assigned to the Pope-Leighey House. He was given room and board by Mr. Pope and supervised the construction of his house and also the Joseph Euchtman House. He also worked with Curtis Wray Besinger (who apprenticed at Taliesin during the time Chadwick was there) in Aspen while working for/with Fritz Benedict. Thanks again for the help.
