Literally my first article: sent to Editor Monica Pidgeon (with a modest 'suggested' layout), who expanded it, had a cover made showing Pope Sixtus V ("the builder pope") emerging from the body of'Judge' Roy Hofheinz.
DATELINE:HOUSTON Images were also included in Vicky Aliata's "InDigest", a takeoff on typically American READERS DIGEST.
Barely a year later; 2 articles, one with my former student and assistant on HOUSTON an architectural guide, Stephen Fox.
About a year after "The Pope and the Judge" I wrote another brief piece on the manifestation of "Style" and what being "Modern" might be. Gas Stations, formerly enamel-panel/flat-roof, were slipping into a more "background" imagery, turniing away from a Rhetorical imagery of an 'Industrial' product, to one "more appropriate" to "your neighborhood".
The tiny 'booklet' was widely circulated; many projects were included. Jim Stirling and Kevin Roche, with whom I had personal connections. Kevin supported a year of my time, while I researched at his office, and Big Jim I wrote about (see Published Writings Bibliography)
AD was the "hottest" journal in the 1970s under the Editor Monica Pidgeon. This tiny advertising piece speaks for itself, in terms of specific references to me and my values at the time (not that they've changed, actually).
