I agree that it would be good to summarize this (see also the article "Form follows fascism" in the 1/31/2005 New York Times). I myself had no knowledge of this previously. (Someone added one sentence, but it's clearly not really enough.) —Steven G. Johnson 17:04, Feb 6, 2005 (UTC)
Source for recent edits re: Johnson's fascist past is Franz Schulze's biography "Philip Johnson: Life and Work" and Kazys Varnelis's online article "We Cannot Not Know History", at http://varnelis.net/research/johnson.html. I've traded emails with Professor Varnelis and he is a thoroughly credible source as well as a nice guy. --Lockley 02:40, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
I added some info on this....hopefully, after several edits, I came up with something balanced. (PS, added bullet points to all comments, for some odd reason they are all running together....) NickBurns 20:30, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
I wanted to include more than just a one-line mention of his cenotaph for the John F. Kennedy Memorial near Dealey Plaza in Dallas, but I can't find an appropriate place. I added it to the list of noted works, but wanted to add a bit more, such as the fact that he was invited personally by Stanley Marcus and that he waived his fee for the project. It doesn't fit under the heading "Later Buildings" because it isn't a building. I suppose we could change it to later works ... there also was a wonderful quote, haven't been able to pin down a year, regarding Marcus' effect on his career:
Hahaha! I bet some autistic deletionist purged the Lipstick Building ("non-notable!") from this page. No wonder no one bothers contributing anymore. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:51, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
