I had heard about this round table forum that Wright participated in, but never tried to research it. The other day came across some information that said there were recordings made. It was apparently an interesting discussion on modern art, over a couple days, including Duchamp and Mark Tobey along with Wright and others. Any backstory knowledge of this event?

I'd like to hear the recording(s). Mr Wright would be semi-legible at best, taking into account the audio of the day ?

But beyond that---would Wright partake of any committee, any panel, any forum of peers ? Isn't he the original "I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member" guy ?

That was Randolph Scott, SDR.

The only recording I know of is in 4 parts, interviews with FLW, David Ben-Gurion, Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein (?). Separate interviews, not a round table.
