Frank Lloyd Wright

The University Archives and Digital Library Systems and Services are pleased to announce that photograph albums from the Hanna House Collection are now available online via the Stanford Digital Repository. Featuring more than 300 photographs, the images document the construction and renovation of this Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. 

In 1935, Paul and Jean Hanna commissioned Wright to design their home to be built on the Stanford University campus. Construction, begun in 1937, continued in four stages over 25 years. The house was the first structure in the world to use Frank Lloyd Wright's hexagonal grid system, which has subsequently been used widely in American architecture.

The Stanford University Archives is pleased to announce the acquisition of a small collection of ephemera documenting President Benjamin Harrison's epic 1891 cross-country railroad journey through nineteen states.
