Author: Edited by: Saylor, Henry H. Ch. 10: Garden, Hugh M. G.

Description: Contains ten articles which were previously published House and Garden "at irregular intervals". Chapter 9 was first published in the October 1910 issue, under the title "Country Homes of the western Plains". "The Style of the Western Plains. I am asked to contribute something on an unnamed style, sometimes vaguely referred to as the product of the Western or Chicago school - it would be presumption to appropriate to anything so tenuous the imposing title ‘American Style’... They show, however, a common freedom from the restraint of accepted academic formulas of design and a general inclination on the part of their designers to build simply from local conditions..." Photographic examples by Sullivan, Griffin, Spencer & Powers and Wright. Wright’s homes shown are the Coonley Residence (1907 - S.135) and the Darwin Martin Conservatory (1904 - S.100-102). Twombly points out in "Frank Lloyd Wright, His Life and His Architecture", page 162, Garden describes Wright as "merely one of many prairie architects... also implied that Sullivan, not Wright, had founded the ‘western’ style of residential architecture."

Title: Letter from Frank Lloyd Wright to Mark Peisch, Columbia University 1953.

Description: Typed and signed letter from
Frank Lloyd Wright on Taliesin West stationery with the original envelope. "Mr. Mark L. Peisch, Foreign Student Advisor, Columbia University in the City of New York, New York 27, N. Y. My dear Mr. Peisch: Walter Burley Griffin was employed by me in the Oak Park Studio for about six years. (about 1893 to 1899 - (not sure)). It was all the education in Architecture he received so far as I know. His wife, Marian was also there with me for eleven years. Sincerely, Frank Lloyd Wright, February 21, 1953." Note: After graduation from the University of Illinois in 1899, Griffin worked as a draftsman in the office of Dwight Perkins, Robert C. Spencer, Jr., and H. Webster Tomlinson in Chicago. He then went to work in Wright’s Studio in Oak Park from 1901 to 1905. He then opened his own practice. Biography from Columbia University: Mark Lyons Peisch (b. 1921) received his B.A. in History and History of Art from Dartmouth College in 1944. At Dartmouth, he was introduced by Professor Hugh Morrison, noted scholar of Louis Sullivan, to the work of Chicago School architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin. Peisch taught briefly at Dartmouth in 1947 before entering Columbia University in 1949 as a graduate student in the Department of Fine Arts and Archeology. His doctoral thesis was on the Griffins and their contemporaries. He was awarded his Ph.D. from Columbia in 1959 with the completion of his dissertation "The Chicago School and Walter Burley Griffin, 1893-1914: Growth and Dissemination of an Architectural Movement and a Representative Figure," which was published in 1964 by Columbia University Press and Random House as "The Chicago School of Architecture: Early Followers of Sullivan and Wright."

Title: The Chicago School of Architecture. A plan for Preserving a Significant Remnant of America’s Architectural Heritage. (Soft Cover) (Published by the United States Department of the Interior, National Park Service)

Author: Miller, Hugh C.

Description: "Between the late 1870's and the First World War one of the most significant architectural movements since the Renaissance flourished in Chicago. The "Chicago School," as it came to be called, produced an original architectural expression based on the application of industrial technology responsive to new economic demands and social concerns. Mirroring and shaping life styles, this architecture anticipated and influenced today's patterns of urban and suburban life in the United States and Europe... The development of the Chicago School has long been associated with an inferred master-pupil role of the great triumvirate of American architecture: H. H. Richardson, Louis H. Sullivan, and Frank Lloyd Wright... Wright inherited Sullivan's role as the dominant force in the search for a rational architecture. Although his writings and theories are not as universally adaptable as Sullivan's, his studio produced a great number of designers who worked in the spirit of the Chicago School. However, from this group perhaps only Walter Burley Griffin, William E. Drummond, and Barry Byrne developed an individuality of architectural design beyond Wrightian forms...." Includes photographs of the Gale Residence, Willits Residence, Unity Temple, Robie House (3), Charnley and Coonley Residences. (First Edition)
