Apprentice Shreve Babcock

Post by PNB »

Does anyone have any information on former apprentice Shreve Babcock? How long was he at Taliesin and did he continue to practice architecture after he left? I am inquiring on behalf of one of my employees who is a relative of Shreve.

Taken from Linda Falkenstein's online review of Myron Marty's book "Communities of Frank Lloyd Wright: Taliesin and Beyond":

"The most interesting, and occasionally deeply weird, chapter is one late in the book, “Daily Life in the Fellowship in the 1940s and 1950s.� The apprentices were charged with building their own desert shelters for themselves and their families, including a three tent compound by Shreve Babcock. In the kitchen, all menus had to be approved by Mrs. Wright. Fresh food was sent from Spring Green to Arizona"
