Title: Arizona Biltmore (Published by Arizona Biltmore Estates, Inc., Phoenix, AZ)

Author: Arizona Biltmore Estates, Inc.

Description: An important booklet that documents the early days of the Arizona Biltmore. Designed in 1927, Frank Lloyd Wright assisted Albert McArthur with the design of the hotel. According to Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, during dinner with Frank Lloyd Wright, Benjamin Adelman turned to Mr. Wright and asked: "Mr. Wright, there is so much mystery about who designed this hotel, you or Albert Chase McArthur. Can’t you clear it up once and for all?" Mr. Wright turned his head in a gesture of surveying the room in which they were dining, and replied: "Look around you, Father Adelman, the building speaks for itself." And with a smile he closed the subject. "Treasures of Taliesin", Pfeiffer, 1985, p.33. Open from November 1 to May 1. (First Edition)
