Savana Showalter Frank Lloyd Wright In Richland Center, Wisconsin on June 8, 1867, Frank Lloyd Wright was born to William Carey Wright and Anna Lloyd Jones. Most of his early childhood was spent traveling with his father from one ministry position to another in Rhode Island, Iowa, and Massachusetts but then in 1878, settled in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1885, Wright’s parents divorced, putting even more strain on their already difficult financial situation. In order to help support his family, an eighteen year old Wright worked for the dean of the University of Wisconsin’s department of engineering while also studying there. However, his passion was in architecture so in 1887, at the age of 20, he left Madison and headed to Chicago.
Frank Lloyd Wright Frank Lloyd Wright was born as Frank Lincoln Wright in Richland Center in southwestern Wisconsin, on June 8, 1867. His father, William Carey Wright, was a musician and a preacher. His mother, Anna Lloyd-Jones was a teacher(1 Compton). It is said that Anna Lloyd-Jones placed pictures of great buildings in young Frank's nursery as part of training him up from the earliest possible moment as an architect. Wright spent some of his time growing up at the farm owned by his uncles near Spring Green, Wisconsin.
When he was twelve years old, Wright's family settled in Madison, Wisconsin where he attended Madison High School. During summers spent on his Uncle James Lloyd Jones' farm in Spring Green, Wisconsin, Wright first began to realize his dream of becoming an architect. In 1885, he left Madison without finishing high school to work for Allan Conover, the Dean of the University of Wisconsin's Engineering department. While at the University, Wright spent two semesters studying civil engineering before moving to Chicago in 1887. (1) In Chicago, he worked for architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee.
His family was Welsh and had traveled over in hopes for a better life. Because his mother was a teacher and his father was a minister, they traveled a lot. His father received jobs in Rhode Island, Iowa, and Massachusetts(Rubin, 1994). By 1878, they had settled down in Madison, Wisconsin. From the time Frank Lloyd Wright was born, his mother gave him building blocks, hoping it would provide him with early architectural education.
In 1882, at the age of 15, he entered the University of Wisconsin as a special student, studying engineering because the school had no course in architecture. Wright left Madison in 1887 to work as a draftsman in Chicago. Wright worked for several architectural offices until he finally found a job with the most skillful architect of the Mid-West, Louis Sullivan, soon becoming Sullivan's chief assistant. Wright was assigned most of the firm's designing of houses, and to pay his many debts he designed for private clients in his spare time. Sullivan disapproved, and Wright set up his own office, which was located in Oak Park.
When Daniel was nine years old, he and his family moved from New York to Chicago, Illinois where he would finish out his childhood and graduate from a public high school. In his early years of adult hood, Daniel applied for college but was rejected. After that, he worked as a retail salesman, mined for gold in Nevada and even tried running for a seat in Illinois’ State Senate. In his early twenties, Burnham started working as an apprentice for William Le Baron Jenney, a leading architect in Chicago. In 1872 Burnham moved from Jenney’s firm to Carter, Drake, and Wight Firm, where he worked as a draftsman.
From a young age Pei had rigorous schooling, which eventually allowed him to come to America where he was accepted to many prestigious schools. He initially attended the University of Pennsylvania where he majored in architecture, but later decided to transfer to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. When he made the switch he switched his major engineering, but after talking with his professors he decided to switch back to his initial architecture major. Pei would end up graduating from MIT with a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1940 at the young age of 17. After receiving his initial degree, he decided to further his education and attend Harvard's Graduate School of Design.
His father then opens a music conservatory, while Wright went to school and worked at his uncle’s farm in Spring Green in the summers. He was attending Madison High School, and in 1885, his parents divorced. In the same year, Wright leaves Madison High School at age 18, and without graduating. He went and had employment as a draftsman’s apprentice in Madison, Wisconsin. The following year, while he was still working, Wright took civil engineering courses in the University of Wisconsin.
Wright was born Frank Lincoln Wright on June 8, 1967, in Richland Center, Wisconsin, to parents William Cary Wright, a Baptist preacher, and Anna Lloyd-Jones, a county school teacher. He grew up in a middle class home during the 1870’s and 1880’s and dreamed of attending the University of Wisconsin at Madison. After his parents’ divorce in 1885, Wright was raised by his mother, and he developed a very close relationship with her, eventually adopting her maiden name Lloyd as his middle name (Wikipedia). That same year, Wright moved to Madison with the hopes of attending the University of Wisconsin. He began seeking part-time employment along with admission to the university.
