This group of photos documents the June 8, 1953 birthday celebration for Frank Lloyd Wright at his Spring Green, WI estate known as Taliesin. The first three photos are of the group during the presentation of Box Projects — a Taliesin Tradition. The reporter/photographer only identifies two individuals in the group: the young girl next to Mr. Wright is Celeste Davison and the woman sitting in front of Mr. Wright on the floor is Mrs. Nancy D'Astous of Montreal, Canada.

The photo above is of Mr. Wright, his grandson Brandock Peters, and Wright's son-in-law William Wesley Peters. They are looking at some ducks and geese given to Mr. Wright for his birthday. The original photos were sold by the Chicago Sun-Times and acquired by the Scott Architectural Archives.

The Scott Architectural Archive is dedicated to the preservation of the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and his students. If you have images of structures or other work by Wright or his students, the Scott Archive would like to add digital copies to their files. Please contact us at taliesin@att.net.
