John Howe

John H. Howe, c. 1960

A charter member of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship, John Howe earned a reputation as “the pencil in Wright’s hand” before establishing his own architectural practice in Minnesota.

Jane King Hession and Tim Quigley, the co-authors of an upcoming book on Howe to be published by the University of Minnesota Press in July 2015, will discuss Howe’s arrival at Taliesin in 1932 and his rise to become Wright’s chief draftsman. A consummate interpreter of Wright’s designs and a supremely gifted renderer, Howe created many of the most renowned and remarkable drawings produced for Wright’s Taliesin studio.
