The somewhat distant connection to Wright---"He then came to the Washington University architecture school and studied under Edward Mutrux, a partner with Wright disciple William Bernoudy"---will be of interest to some. The residential work seems to reflect a broad swath of mid-century American residential design, spanning the nation from New England, to the midwest, to Arizona or Palm Springs, to Los Angeles and the Pacific northwest: Carl Koch and George Nemeny; Eugene Sternberg and David Runnells; William Krisel and Ralph Haver; Cliff May and Paul Kirk.
