This article gives a synopsis of Howe's career. http://www.startribune.com/how-frank-ll ... 328212881/
His association with the state of Minnesota was a long one, beginning with his (and Davy Davison's) incarceration at the federal prison at Sandstone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandstone,_Minnesota
A revelation of the Rob Barros film is the amount of design work Howe accomplished at Sandstone: a number of houses and other projects were
produced, at first with minimal art materials, during a period of solitary confinement (!), and then with a more generous supply of pencils and paper.
