For one of the "largest architectural archives in North America"
it struck me as odd that I found nothing on FLLW.
Maybe I'm wrong.

But cool stuff anyway:

From what I've heard, the only West Coast institution to have collected Wright materials is the Getty.

Thus nothing availabel online from the Getty either
...reagrding Wright.

Wonder what the interest is that is preventing wealthy institutions
like the Getty and the Columbia Archive from making this material
available online?

I once corresponded briefly on telephone with an old timer from TWest.
I asked him some stupid question like:
"why don't you guys make the construction documents for Fallingwater available"
His response was, - well we can't do that because someone might build another Fallingwater.
I hung up.
Just strikes me as imbecilic ignoramity.
(not a real word)

Although I have never availed myself, I know in the past that the FLW holdings at Getty were readily available.

I used to work at the Getty and many times I'd spend may lunch hour looking through the binders of Wright plans (8x10 copies of the photos the Getty had taken of the archive). It was like finding a box of crayons with colors I'd never seen before. They used to let me copy as many items as I wanted, but since put the kibosh on that.

When I used the Getty several years ago, they had little or nothing original, but the complete TWest archive was on microfiche. Anybody could make an appointment to see them, with the help of Alofsin's index. They also allowed photocopies for 15ยข per page or would mail them.
