Four strong women and one lunatic. One could go further, and give a nod to some of FLW's clients: Susan Lawrence Dana, Queene Ferry Coonley, Aline Barnsdall, Katharine Jacobs and even Marilyn Monroe.

Please include the client Nancy Willey of Minneapolis. She was much more the client than was her husband, Malcolm. She wrote to Wright and then supervised the construction (1933) of her house. She even fed the workers when they went on strike!

Alice Millard and Ayn Rand are two more, and maybe Virginia Lovness.

They say that the unsympathetic design changes to Ennis were Mabel's ideas.

I don't know that I would include Ayn Rand. She couldn't make up her mind whether to build in Connecticut or California, as if there were no difference.
Geiger said Mr. Wright thought she was stupid. He obviously took her for a ride, knowing she wouldn't build.
