GROWING UP IN A FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOUSE, Excerpt:
“Virtually every tour I led after school hours – or on the weekends – began the same way – I stood on the hearth, index cards in hand, all 4 feet 8 inches of me beaming. I was in 3rd grade and “leading a tour,” with my mother’s assistance, of my Frank Lloyd Wright House. All eyes would be on me, interested in what I had to say (finally!). I began each tour.
The Frank Lloyd Wright house in Rochester, New York was built in 1908 for a widower, Edward E. Boynton, and his 20-year-old daughter, Beulah. He worked for a lantern company and was familiar with Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural designs through someone he worked with in Chicago.” At this point I would hold up one of Boynton’s lanterns.Kim Bixler
