Good-byes and Birthdays: So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright and Happy Birthday Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

Good-bye

Today is the anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's death in 1959. It is commemorated by Simon and Garfunkle in the appropriately named "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright."

Here is a link to a YouTube video with images of Mr. Wright's designs as the song plays in the background:

Birthday

For those Fallingwater fans out there, here's a bit of trivia...today is also the day Edgar Kaufmann, jr. was born one hundred years ago in 1910.
