Construction crew interviews

Post by TerryS »

Today I read an article by Mr. Rudy Anderson in a Port Allegeny, PA, booklet about his working as a carpenter on "Falling Waters" and later on the guest house. Still living in his eighties, I'm wondering if he would share some stories. Have the the Wright historians and recorders tracked down and interviewed any members of the construction crews that worked on Wrights' buildings? Are there any published works of those interviews?

I am Rudy's grandson. I have all of the information in which you seek about my grandfather. He has made audio recordings of stories about his work on the House of Falling Waters.

Thank you, Duane. The recordings are great to have. Do you know what the booklet is that Terry S mentioned ? Have any of your grandfather's words been printed anywhere ? That would be the easiest way -- for starters -- to learn what he knew and experienced.

Thanks for finding us.
