Usable archive in NY?

Post by Guest »

HI,

I'm interested in doing a project on FLW, concentrating with him from 1900-1920 as social reformer? Anyone got a good idea where to start to collect primary sources, documents pertaining to that area of study? I am in Connecticut. I was hoping for archives at Guggenheim, but it seems most of his archives are elsewhere.

Any info would be great.

I would suggest the Avery Architectural Library at Columbia University. I recommend these books given your topic:



Frank Lloyd Wright Collected Writings: Volume 1 1894-1930



Frank Lloyd Wright: The Lost Years 1910-1922



Frank Lloyd Wright Autobiography



Frank Lloyd Wright by Meryl Secrist



Frank Lloyd Wright To 1910: The First Golden Age



Books on the California Work, especially Aline Barnesdall and her projects
Paul Harding FAIA Restoration Architect for FLW's 1901 E. Arthur Davenport House, 1941 Lloyd Lewis House, 1952 Glore House | www.harding.com | LinkedIn

HI Paul,



Thanks for the info. I will give them a call tomorrow.

Thanks too, for the start with books. I have started with a couple of books he wrote in the late 40's.



I am so impressed with his work, I am even thinking of buying that house for sale in Michigan... But it is out in the sticks!! :cry:



Regards,



Robert
