Title: David & Gladys Wright House Site Circa 1950 (1950 - S.322).

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright visits the site of David & Gladys Wright’s house, Phoenix, Arizona. In 1950, David Wright, Frank Lloyd Wright’s fourth child, asked his father to design a home for he and his wife on a lot they owned in Phoenix. Wright called the design "How to live in the Southwest", which was published in the June 1953, "House & Home." The lot was located in the middle of a citric grove, so Wright designed the living space to float above the tree line. David owned a company that manufactured and distributed concrete block. The decorative blocks were designed specifically for this home. Others were standard blocks manufactured by his company. At some point during the beginning of 1950, Wright must have visited the site. After studying the view from the site, we were able to confirm that the view of the Camelback Mountains in the background, matches the view from the site. Note: This photographs was published on the cover of The Frank Lloyd Wright Quarterly, Spring, 1997, and is dated February 5, 1952. But, if this is the site of David Wright’s home, as we suspect, it appears to be a vacant lot, void of construction, which would date this photograph 1950. The car Wright is leaning against is a 1948 Buick Eight Roadmaster.

Title: The Biography of Lloyd Wright. Son of Frank Lloyd Wright. Architect and Designer of the Wayfarers Chapel (Published by The Wayfarers Chapel, Rancho Palos Verdes, California)

Author: Martin, Rev. Ernest O.

Description: "Lloyd Wright viewed the commission to build the Wayfarers Chapel as a ‘God-given opportunity for a God-given purpose.’ The Chapel became his most famous building, for its structure unites his considerable talents in art, architecture, and landscape design in a simple, yet wondrous creation in an Eden-like setting on the shore of the Pacific... Lloyd Wright was born in Oak Park, Illinois, on March 31, 1890, the oldest of six children born to Frank Lloyd Wright and Catherine Tobin. The house he grew up in was one of his father’s earliest designs and also served as his father's studio. In this home his mother directed the nursery school where Lloyd, his siblings, and neighborhood children develop the love and appreciation of music, art, and drama. This early education and cultural milieu was a formative influence in the creative talents of Lloyd. His creativity was further developed through his education at his great aunt's boarding school near Spring Green, Wisconsin, which later became part of Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio in Wisconsin."

Title: Lloyd Wright, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York)

Author: Weintraub, Alan (Produced and Photographed); Essay: Hines, Thomas S.; Remembrance by Wright, Eric Lloyd, Texts by Hutt, Dana

Description: Dust jacket: Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., known as Lloyd Wright (1870-1978), is arguably one of the greatest undiscovered architects of the 20th century. Over a ten year period, architectural photographer Alan Weintraub has documented his buildings in colour and in fine detail. This monograph offers a comprehensive presentation of Lloyd Wright's complete oeuvre. Lloyd Wright had a style all of his own. His gemlike construction fusing landscape with built form, are syntheses of nature, regional modernism and exoticism. He built most of his work in southern California, mainly in unassuming neighborhoods of Los Angeles. This extensively illustrated book features nearly 600 images. At the book's heart are 32 of Wright's buildings, and the reference section includes an illustrated chronology with archival sketches and images of unbuilt works. 595 illustrations, including 428 plates in full color.
