Frank Lloyd Wright Mystery: Does a recording exist of Wright’s guest lecture?


On May 16, 1950, the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright visited the School of Design at NC State University and spoke to over 5,000 people at Reynolds Coliseum for an architecture lecture. He even stayed with Dean Henry Kamphoefner at his modernist home in Raleigh . In the photograph above, from Special Collections, Wright is pictured walking with Dean Kamphoefner . North Carolina Modernist Houses has provided a full account of his visit to campus .

Unfortunately, a recording of this important lecture has never been located.  North Carolina Modernist Houses has been on a quest to find one. Can you help?

If you have any leads, please contact Special Collections or North Carolina Modernist Houses .
