Title: Abraham Lincoln Center Circa 1906 (1903 - S.095).

Description: Designed for Frank Lloyd Wright uncle, Reverend Jenkin Lloyd Jones. As the All Souls Church outgrew their facility, Reverend Jones wanted a facility that could meet the needs of the community as well as the Church. The design went though many modifications. A perspective view of the first design for "The Lincoln Center" was published in The Architectural Review, June 1900, Spencer, p.72. Floor plans for the ground floor and Auditorium were published on page 71. A revised design for the "Abraham Lincoln Center," Frank Lloyd Wright and Dwight Heald Perkins, Associated Architects, was published in The Chicago Architectural Annual, 1902. Jones was still dissatisfied, and Wright resigned as architect. Perkins also resigned. Elements of Wright’s original design remained, but the finished project lost many of Wright’s ideas. In 1907, a model of the Abraham Lincoln Center was displayed at an exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work at the Art Institute of Chicago. Text of face: "This Building Is Dedicated to Public Service Honoring the Memory of Abraham Lincoln. Democrat. Bronze Tablet, East Front. Abraham Lincoln Center . N. E. Cor. of Oakland Blvd. and Langley Ave. Chicago." Hand written of face: "194 Lakewood Blvd. Flat 1. This is where I am to have a number of classes this winter. Begin five of my classes this week. Am busier than a bee. Have been trying to find time to write you - but it is rush from morning to night. What are you to do this winter? Let me hear from you soon. Remember me to the family. J. Z. (???). Oct. 7 - 1906." Verso: "Post Card." (Non divided back.) Post marked: "Oct 8 1906." Addressed to: "Miss Amy L. Stork, 124 Main St., Andover, Mass."

Title: Jenkin Lloyd Jones Circa 1910.

Description: Jones (November 14, 1843 - September 12, 1918) appears to be standing above the crowd, his left hand is raised as he addresses the crowd. The entrance to an unidentified auditorium is in the background. Hand written on verso: "Jenkin Lloyd Jones. (Quelling a mob at Auditorium, Chicago." Etched in the negative, bottom right hand corner: "1P-10-3-10." Jones was the uncle of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, He became a Unitarian minister in Chicago. He became Missionary Secretary of the Western Unitarian Conference and editor of the liberal religious weekly, Unity. In 1889 Jones became a strong supporter of the Hull House Settlement that had been established by Jane Addams and Ellen Starr in the run-down Nineteenth Ward of Chicago. An opponent of child labour and supporter of the early trade union movement, gave lectures at Hull House to recently arrived immigrants from Europe. He was the author of numerous works. Although Jones was the most powerful western figure in the denomination, he encountered friction from the American Unitarian Association (AUA) because of his independent course and friction within the WUC because of his theological radicalism. In 1882 Jones reorganized the Fourth Unitarian Society in Chicago as All Souls Church, and a decade later he played a central role in the World's Parliament of Religions, which brought together a number of world religious leaders. The conference seemed a step toward Jones's dream of a universal church for humankind. He ended his career as director of the Abraham Lincoln Centre in Chicago, where he continued to be a voice of reform. In his last years, he spoke as a pacifist in opposition to World War I.
