Photographing Wright, redux

(c) Mark Hertzberg (2019)

Note: My photos of Minerva and Charles Montooth are the post below this one.

This is the final installment of my 2019 quest to find new photos as I visit buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that are familiar to me. I visited them five times accompanying Road Scholar trips this year:

Wyoming Valley School Artifacts

Wyoming Valley School 6.9.19.jpg

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.

The late photojournalist Don Nussbaum did a picture story for the Milwaukee Journal when the school opened.
