THE JOHN W. GEIGER COLLECTION
FOR THE STUDY OF
Frank Lloyd Wright research materials
Series 3: Bibliographic Materials
Documentation in the Bibliographic Materials series consists of original notes developed to be entered into the Geiger database and some other research tools. John Geiger collaborated with others to recover information about participation in Wright studio projects. One of the most important of these efforts revolved around publication of the series of Frank Lloyd Wright Monograph volumes. Geiger enlisted the assistance of Taliesin Fellows John and Lu Howe, Curtis Besinger, and A. Louis Wiehle to review the contents of the books and make notations about who worked on projects in the Wright studio and, if possible, to assign authorship for individual drawings. These folders work as a group to document the consensus of their recollections. In addition, Geiger relied on an index organizing Wright works by their geographical location and a bibliography of Wright publications that are also present.
