MONONA TERRACE TESTIMONIAL BANQUET
 

Monona Terrace Testimonial Banquet.  February 10, 1955.  In 1954 the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that Wright owed $10,000 in back taxes on Taliesin.  For years he had argued that Taliesin was primarily a school and therefore tax exempt.  He was so mad he threatened to destroy Taliesin and move from the state.  Cary Caraway, a former apprentice suggested that Wright’s friends express their appreciation and take up a collection.  Mary Lescohier and Helen Groves made it happen.  380 supporters gathered in the Great Hall of the U.W. Memorial Union for a tribute.  Wright took the opportunity to display the new Monona Terrace model.  At the end of the program, he received a check for $10.000.

Monona Terrace Auditorium and Civic Center Blueprints and Specifications, 1961
   
Monona Terrace Auditorium and Civic Center Blueprints and Specifications, 1961. In 1938, a private committee, headed by Paul F. Harloff commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a civic center on the shores of Lake Monona on a plot of land known as "Olin Terrace," a park at the end of the mall that extended from the state capital to the shores of Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin. Wright drew up plans, named it Olin Terraces. Opposition to the plan and the war put plans on hold until the early 1950s. Plans to build a civic center were resurrected in 1953. Wright was encouraged to reintroduce his plan, and in October, 1953 using the original concept, presented drawings to the citizens of Madison. In 1955, Wright redesigned the plans, and built a model of the Monona Terrace Civic Center. Although Wright’s project was supported by the mayor and citizens groups, it also encountered strong opposition. After Wright’s death, the Taliesin Associated Architects, lead by William Wesley Peters, completed working drawings and specifications for the project and put it out to bids during the early part of 1961. The bids returned at triple the budget, the battle continued, and the project was placed on hold. On July 20, 1997, nearly forty years after Mr. Wright’s death, opening ceremonies began for the completed Monona Terrace Civic Center. This set is from 1961. Eugene Gangstad worked for the city of Madison as the Director of Planning. He noticed that these plans had been thrown in the dumpster. After rescuing and storing the plans for years, he passed them on to his son, Kent. "After taking them with me through a couple of moves, and storing them carefully each time, I figured it was time for someone else to appreciate them," said Kent. We acquired them from Kent Gangstad in 2015. Eugene retired from the city in the late 80's.
