Need help verifying FLLW student status

Post by uteferdig »

I am trying to find out if an architect who designed one of my client's homes was a direct student under Frank Lloyd Wright. Does anyone have any idea how I can get access to this kind of alumni information? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The architect's name is Walter S. White. Thank you.

One possibility is to contact the FLlW Foundation in Scottsdale: www.franklloydwright.org/.

Thanks for the reply. So far I have received information from two independent sources that both say that Walter S. White was not a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, which does not come as a great surprise. It is possible that the plans were drawn by a student of FLlW who was not a licensed architect and Mr. White may have just served as the architect of record. Thanks again for the reply.

Pesumably you're asking because the house in question has a Wrightian look or layout. He was very famous, widely published and widely imitated, so such an influence is not necessarily due to a personal connection. Let us know what you find.
