"The fifteenth annual meeting of the Walter Burley Griffin Society of America will be held in Mason City, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, 30-31 May 2014. And what a meeting it is looking to be! Thanks to Bob McCoy’s continued persistence and goodwill, there will be eleven buildings open for touring. This will necessitate two afternoons of tour times—Friday and Saturday.

The meeting will start late on Friday morning, with a welcome, introduction, and box lunch before the afternoon gets underway. The evening will begin with a reception and keynote address by Professor James Weirick of the University of New South Wales. Dinner is on your own.

Saturday morning is to begin with a morning session of lectures at the Mason City Public Library, 225 2nd St SE, followed by lunch on your own, followed by the second round of walking tours.

(Note: half the houses will be open one afternoon and the other half the second afternoon.)

The meeting will end with a reception on Saturday evening, followed by dinner on your own.

Accommodations are available at the following, all of which have offered special conference rates by mentioning the Griffin Society:

Quality Inn and Suites, 410 5th St. SW, 866-460-7456 (a half mile from the public library);

Holiday Inn Express and Suites, 3041 4th St SW, 866-460-7456 (a mile and a half from library); and

Country Inn and Suites, 4082 4th St SW, 641-423-1770 (two and a half miles from library). Please contact the hotels directly with your reservations.

In addition, a limited number of rooms remain in the Society’s name at Wright on the Park, the restored Historic Park Inn Hotel . Please contact Peter B. Griffin directly at wbgsociety@charter.net for availability.

Look for registration information and conference costs in the next newsletter, as well as on the Griffin website.
