Vonnegut, Wright & Yeager was an architectural firm active in mid-twentieth-century Indiana. The firm was organized in 1946 as a partnership between the surviving partners of three Indiana firms: Kurt Vonnegut Sr. (1884–1957) of Vonnegut, Bohn & Mueller Architects, George Caleb Wright (b. April 25, 1889) of Pierre and Wright and Ralph Oscar Yeager (b. August 16, 1892) of Miller and Yeager (of Terre Haute, Indiana). It was located at 1126 Hume Mansur Building, Indianapolis, Indiana and 402 Opera House Building, Terre Haute, Indiana.[1]


Vonnegut, Wright & Yeager was formed in 1946. It appears that in the late 1950s, possibly after the death of partner Kurt Vonnegut Sr. in 1957, partner George Caleb Wright left the firm to become senior partner in the Indianapolis firm of Wright, Porteus & Lowe.
