Saturday June 8, Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday, started as an ordinary open house day for Mary Pohlman at Wright’s Wyoming Valley School near Taliesin. It was ordinary until a member of the late Paul Buchner’s family came in and presented her with heretofore unknown historic artifacts including a telegram from the architect to Buchner,  a member of the school board when the school opened in January, 1958.
