American architect of office buildings and private homes noted for starting the "prairie style" rambling type of house in 1930. Over the entire span of his career, he was responsible for more than 800 buildings, including a house called Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, a traffic-stopping gas station in Minnesota, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Great Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, which was built in 1915. Wright was also the author of "Experimenting With Human Lines," 1923 and "Modern Architecture," 1931.
He married three times and had seven children. Ironically, the woman who was the passion of his life, but not one of his wives, was brutally murdered in 1914. Wright overcame the anguish through work, work, and more work, turning him into the prolific architect that is remembered today.
Died on 9 April 1959 in Phoenix, AZ, aged 91.

From McEvoy: "His third wife Olga Milanov gave that time to Collice Portnoff, head of the English Department and my mentor in college…..She and Olga were close friends in the last years of Collice's life." Formerly, time given by Penfield Collection was 20:00 (8 PM) "per documents in Columbia University. Most other reference books give 1869 in error." Dewey adds, "The papers at Columbia include his mom's diary with the date. He himself said he was born in the evening in the middle of a storm." Church of Light q. Ziegler at 1869, 6:05 AM LMT. WORLD BOOK and AMERICANA give 1869. Called Ruth Dewey early April, 1987 to ask about the quote, she said she personally saw the article with photostatic copies of mother's handwriting which clearly read 1867. Said also that Wright, in a biography, said his mother had told him that he'd been born "evening, during a thunderstorm" which would be 8:00 PM or later for that part of the country.
