Oklahoma Today and the Bedazzling Bruce Goff
by Lynne Rostochil
I love vintage issues of Oklahoma Today because the magazine’s reporters did a great job of covering the modern architecture that was popping up all over the state from the ’50s through the mid-’70s. So, in my research, I often find myself browsing through the OT archives looking for the history of architects and the buildings they designed. Recently, I stumbled upon an issue from much later than I normally view — March-April 1985:
As you can see from the cover, the issue featured an extensive article about Bruce Goff and his work in Oklahoma. I’ve read a lot about Goff, his work, and his students over the years, but there are some anecdotal stories in this article that I’ve never heard before and I thought that you might be interested in reading them, too. So, here’s the article in full — just click an image to enlarge it and read away!
