Cornelia BrierlyWord reaches us that Taliesin Fellow, Cornelia Brierly passed away Friday August 24, 2012 at the age of 99. Cornelia joined Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship in 1934, three years before Wright began building Taliesin West. As stated on The Frank Lloyd wright Foundation's website and Facebook page:

"Among her career highlights in architecture, Cornelia helped present the "Broadacre City" model to the American public and recalled surveying, with Mr. Wright, the site that would become “Fallingwater.” She is the author of Tales of Taliesin.

She is survived by her daughters, Indira Berndtson and Anna Coor. A memorial service is being planned for Taliesin West in late October. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to support the Taliesin Entry Gardens that Cornelia spent so much time and care stewarding."
