Description: Book Review. "An Autobiography," Wright, 1932, $5. "America’s most creative rebel sets down, somewhere within the confused beauty of this book, the comment that ‘man’s struggle to illuminate creation is another tragedy.’ Against the background of ‘terrible shopkeeping circumstances we call Democracy’ he unfolds the story of his creative life and the record of what counts creatively in the art of architecture, in nineteenth and twentieth century America. But the undercurrent of tragedy in not in any failure of the writer to illuminate creation; it is revealed in the situation of an original and prophetic artist – and a man attempting to be truly free – struggling against the grad of orthodoxy and ignorance in a shopkeeping and belly-filling civilization..."

Or as Louis Sullivan’s system of ornament was. But Louis Sullivan devised a system of ornament out of himself with a sense of organic unity warmly exponent of the individuality of one Louis Henry Sullivan.

Description: Book reviewed by Frank Lloyd Wright: "Horizons," Norman Bel Geddes, 1932. "On Popular Mechanics. Comrad Bel Geddes has left his metier – the theatre -- to write a treatise on popular mechanics. He has notions concerning the future of practically everything, but pretty nearly everything begins with the Greeks, the Egyptians, and Cezanne and winds up with Norman Bel Geddes... Geddes is a distinguished designer of the spectacle, and as such of no negligible character and valuable to our stage. But, although he has, obviously, profited much by what has gone before him and has embodied it as the best part of his book, his ‘Horizons’ is nevertheless a book apparently written as a primer for those who know art only through the Sunday supplements..."

I find almost all your prognosticating nearly right – much of it dead right, and I love you for the way you prognosticate. To address you directly will be a hell of a way of reviewing you book – I know. I should write all around you, take you apart, and put you together again to show – between the lines – how much bigger my mind is than yours and how much smarter than you I can be with it and leave the essence of your thought untouched.

It is a variety of anticlimax to read odds and ends of family history and certain quasi-scandalous items... It seems a pity that the son should have found it necessary to concentrate on minor matters and have failed to use his unusual opportunities to present to us details in the life of his father that would eventually have helped in realizing a true picture of great man."

Description: Building on the Wright Foundation. (Book Review on "Life and Shape," by Richard Neutra and "The Evolution of an Architect," by Edward Durell Stone.) "Tributes to Frank Lloyd Wright come from many architects these days, but what a treat to find, in both these introspections, such genuine, such intimate eulogy of a true American titan. To read these books is to realize the full extent to which Edward Durell Stone's simple sentence sums up a fact: "No modem architect today takes a pencil in hand without subconsciously paying homage to Frank Lloyd Wright." Both Stone and Richard Neutra, revealing so personally their own relationship to Wright, add there-by unforgettable and important paragraphs to the saga of the master of all the modern masters."

Title: The New Republic - January 21, 1931 Vol. LXV No. 842 (Published Weekly by The New Republic, New York)

Author: Mumford, Lewis

Description: Two Chicago Fairs. The World’s Fair at Chicago in 1893 had a powerful influence upon American architecture and city planning: it became a model and a goal for aspiration. In the project for another World's Fair at Chicago in 1933 a heavy responsibility lies upon the organizing committee and the architects They have designated to create the buildings... The break occasioned by the Worlds Fair was severe. Perhaps the only thing that kept it from being fatal was the work of a single man, Frank Lloyd Wright, who began as a draughtsman in Sullivan's office, and during the 90s started out on an independent career...| With the work of Frank Lloyd Wright modern architecture may properly be said to begin. While Sullivan faultered, stopped, became vague and mystical, lost himself in the labyrinth of his own ornament, Mr. Wright went on. One has only to compare his work with the most advanced work in Europe during the same period to see far how far ahead he was of Wagner, Berlage, or Perret..." Original cover price 15c.

Title: The New Republic - February 4, 1931 Vol. LXV No. 844 (Published Weekly by The New Republic, New York)

Author: Churchill, Henry S.

Description: Correspondence: "Wright and the Chicago Fair. Sir: the omission of Frank Lloyd Wright from the proposed world’s fair of ‘33 in Chicago is nothing less than a calamity. Even the academicians of ‘93 did not dare leave out Sullivan, and the Commissioners of ‘33 are supposed not to be academicians... Two arguments for Wright’s exclusion have, I believe, been advanced. One is that he is difficult to work with, the other that his architecture does not "conform." Whatever element of truth there may be in the first does not outweigh the fact that he is the greatest living architect. As to the second, "conform" to what? One look at the heterogeneous designs of the commissioners, ranging from Paris ‘25 to Neo– romantic by way of a what’s-It-behind-the-trees, convinces one that the fear is not about Wright’s conformity but of his ability..."

Author: Bauer, C. K.

Description: "The Americanization of Europe. Three leaves from a notebook. III. And then, all summer long, in Oslo, in Stockholm, in Germany, Holland, France, in brick, in wood, in stone, in concrete, I marked the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright. Houses, apartments, restaurants, stadiums, churches – some good, some bad – that could never have been exactly the way they were if Wright’s handful of Midwestern houses had not been built before. The best contemporary European architects – Oud in Holland, Gropius and Schnider and Mart Stam in Germany, Le Corbsier and Lurcat in France – have gone beyond him but the path from Art Nouveau to nue Sachlichkeit, to an international spirit of rationalism in architecture, could obviously never have been traverse in so short a time without the influence of Mr. Wright, Without his ingenious use of materials, his fresh, spacious plans, his honesty if still romantically individualistic evaluations. Perhaps more than anyone else, Frank Lloyd Wright has succeeded in giving the word architecture, and shaking it loose from its eighteenth and nineteenth century, connotation, Public Monument..."
