My understanding is that an architect's work is what comes out of his office with his name on it, regardless of who on the staff did what. Thus Hoffman is a Wright house.



The story about Davenport might be more complicated, depending on what the documents say.



Nobody thinks an architect does everything without help from the staff. This is also how the great Renaissance painters worked and how fashion designers work today. Some series novels, like Nancy Drew or some of the romances, are similarly ghosted. Supposedely Alexandre Dumas maintained a staff of novelists, all putting stuff out under his name.

There clearly has to be more research into the nature of the Wright/Tomlinson partnership. Has Mr. Harding uncovered anything of note in the Archives?
