November 9th meeting – Jack Holzhueter, FLW Historian

November 4, 2009

On Monday, November 9th at 6pm, the Steering Committee will be hosting Jack Holzhueter. Holzhueter has many years of service with the Wisconsin Historical Society, as editor of the Wisconsin Magazine of History, and serves on the board of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. The purpose of this meeting will be to learn more about the history of the Lamp House and surrounding block.

Steering Committee meetings are always open to everyone, but we’d like to especially invite community members to attend this meeting. You don’t need to have an interest in any of the development proposals for the block. If you’d just like to learn a bit more about a part of the neighborhood you might not have even known was there, it’ll be well worth your time.

Jack has suggested that it would be helpful for audience members to have read his 1989 article on the relationship between Robert Lamp and Frank Lloyd Wright:

Wisconsin magazine of history: Volume 72, number 2, winter, 1988-1989.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Designs for Robert Lamp, by John O. Holzhueter, pp. 82-125.

The meeting is at the First United Methodist Church in Fellowship Hall on the first floor. We hope to see you at Monday night at 6pm!
