titleFrank Lloyd Wright collection of printed material, ca. 1883-1987.
repositoryThe Getty Research Institute
collection titleMost are architectural or home design magazines. One publication is Harwell Hamilton Harris’s fine printed booklet, Architecture as an art, 1969. Included are publications and printed ephemera from the Taliesan Fellowship (ca. 1930s-1970s).

The publications in Series II are arranged by Sweeney number. Two publications from the 1980s are not listed in Sweeney’s bibliography. Other printed ephemera (ca. 2 linear ft.), including postcards, relates to Wright-designed buildings such as Unity Church, the Larkin building, the Imperial Hotel (Teikoku Hoteru), or to conferences, exhibitions and other events and publications. Some of the images and ephemera illustrate Wright’s influence in graphic design and architecture (on Elmslie, Goff, Lloyd Wright and others), and his sources (particularly Louis Sullivan). Another file (ca. 70 items) contains plans, some correspondence, photographs and mss. material (most photocopies) from Louis Penfield about the Penfield houses #1 and #2 designed by Wright in 1952.

The collection includes some correspondence. A notebook contains about 15 photocopied letters from Wright to various people; there are a few letters from associates of Wright and one letter from Louis Sullivan, (1909?) about the drawings for the Bradley house.
