Bruce Goff’s Work in Vintage Living Color
by Lynne Rostochil
While researching Henry L. Kamphoefner and his years at OU, I stumbled upon the North Carolina State University library photo archive, which happens to contain a small collection of vintage COLOR photos of some of Bruce Goff’s best work in Norman. Giddy as a teenager on a first date with her big crush, I carefully looked at each photo and could barely contain myself — what a treat to see these places in their early years looking so perfect and happy! Although none of the images has a photo credit, I believe that images of the Magyness House may have been taken by our pal, Bob Bowlby. I’ll have to research and find the photographer for the rest of the photos.
Without further ado, here are the images that will make you jump up and down with delight, too:
(a.k.a – Teepee House, which remained unfinished for nearly 20 years before being completed in 1966)
Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity House
(Sadly, the Pi Lambda Phi house burned to the ground in 1963 and was not rebuilt.)
