While most people retire, Wright worked on, creating in his later years buildings such as the Martin County (California) Civic Center and the famous Guggenheim Museum in New York. Today, some of his buildings have been demolished (the Imperial Hotel, for example, is gone), and many others, such as his proposed mile-high office building for Chicago, remain only on paper. But hundreds of his buildings still stand, elegant monuments to an American architectural genius." Includes four photographs. Original cover price $2.25.

JOURNAL OF THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE
   
Date: 1954

Title: Journal of The Franklin Institute - September 1954 (Reprint) (Published by The Journal of The Franklin Institute. Reprinted from The Journal of The Franklin Institute, Vol. 258, No. 3, September 1954.)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: Presentation of the Frank P. Brown metal. Proceedings of the presentation of the frank P. Brown metal, deferred from the 1953 metal day ceremonies, and presented June 4, 1954, in the lecture hall of The Franklin Institute.
1) "Mr. Sellers: Mr. President., I present Frank Lloyd Wright for an award. Our candidate is without question the dean of American Architecture. His influence on the architectural thought of our times has been great and far reaching, both in this country and abroad. His career is unmatched, extending over a period of sixty years and still going on. Mr. Wright has always insisted on a return to true basic architectural principles..."
Acceptance speech delivered by Mr. Wright, on the location of the award of the Frank P. Brown metal to him, June 4, 1954, in the lecture hall of the Franklin Institute.
2) American Architecture. Ladies and gentlemen: this is a serious occasion. I was blamed for recently excepting, with lightness, and, I thought, some Grace -- a similar honor from the American Institute of Art and Letters. The comment upon the reception of the metal at that time was that mine was a cranky and cocky acceptance. I am not cranking now and I am not cocky. I am seriously gratified to have Science thus recognize one in the field of art, which is, after all, rather low down at this time in the history of our world..." Two copies. (Sweeney 1037)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: Books That Have Meant Most To Me. I suppose the books one has chosen or has happened to read are important. Everybody makes a more or less natural selection, I should say, notwithstanding suggestions or commands. And the book fodder for which we have a natural taste does most to feed the thing we call ourselves. The Arabian Nights fascinated me as a boy. Aladdin and his wonderful lamp – "imagination" was the lamp as I see now – was one of the tales that never tired me... Includes on portrait of Wright.

THE STRUCTURIST
   
Date: 1986

Title: The Structurist - No. 25/26, 1985/1986 (Published biennially by the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada)

Author: Bell, Keith

Description: Book Report: "Man About Town: Frank Lloyd Wright in New York City," Muschamp, 1983. During the current critical assault upon modern architecture the complaint is frequently made that architects have ignored the needs of the people who use their buildings, and have instead impose their own style and concept of society upon frequently unwilling recipients . This is certainly the opinion of Herbert Muschamp, who in his "Man About Town" discusses Frank Lloyd Wright's stay in New York during the 1920s and concludes with a long section on the role of Wright and others in the often uncomfortable relationship between the creative architect and the urban environment..." Includes one photograph of Frank Lloyd Wright. Original double issue cover price $30.00.

Title: The Structurist - No. 35/36, 1995/1996 (Published biennially by the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada)
Author: Kingsbury, Pamela D. Author: Domer, Dennis
   
Description: 1) "Frank Lloyd Wright’s Allen House. Situated in splendid isolation on the Kansas prairie far from its siblings, Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen house has gone virtually unnoticed by architectural historians. The house was erected in Wichita, Kansas, and removed from its major locus of Wright’s prairie residences in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park and elsewhere in Illinois: one must undertake a pilgrimage to see Wright’s last Prairie residence. Not only is the Allen House isolated geographically, but it is separated chronologically from Wright’s Prairie residences, having been designed long after he ceased his Oak Park practice and returned from his two-year European sojourn in 1911..." Includes five photographs of the Allen House. Description:  2) "Out of the Nature of Things: Alfred Caldwell’s Idea of the Organic At Eagle Point Park. In the late 1920s Alfred Caldwel visited Frank Lloyd Wright in his exile in central Wisconsin. On the recommendation of Jens Jansen, Wright had consented to see the young landscape architect, "if he didn't talk too much." Through this memorable first experience and several subsequent trips to see the master at Taliesin, including one in which he said he read his poetry to Mr. Wright, Caldwell became well acquainted with Wright’s idea of the organic. He saw how Taliesin spreads like lava around the brow of the hill, how the building’s stones lie one upon the other as if only the focus of geology had touched them, how the broad, low eaves of Hillside School, like the limbs off the tree, cantilever to receive the big oak and roll around it. He saw how the architect had designed all aspects of his house from a single generative idea that provided a multitude of interrelated forms..." Includes six photographs of the Eagle Point Park. Original double issue cover price $52.00.

THE WILSON QUARTERLY
 
Date: 1994

Title: The Wilson Quarterly - Spring 1994 (Published quarterly by The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington D. C.)

Author: Rybczynski, Witold

Description: "Why Wright Endures. The enduring fascination with Frank Lloyd Wright - evinced most recently by this year’s retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art - is a tribute to an architectural genius whose distinctive style ‘spoke, and still speaks to most Americans...’ The public interest in Wright’s work has always been sustained by the personality of the man himself. ‘He is a fascinating, adorable, and utterly irresponsible genius, full of magnetism, selfish to the extent of violating all the conventions if he sees fit; and an artist to his fingertips,’ wrote his friend, Frederick Gookin in 1919..." Seven photographs include; Portrait of Wright in 1937 by Bill Hedrich, Suntop, Wingspread, Hanna, Taliesin and Broadacre City illustration. Original cover price $6.00.

Size: 7 x 10
