Abstract

This Masters degree thesis is one of the few biographical resources on Ralph Twitchell, former partner of Paul Rudolph. The basis for the original research is primary source material, including interviews, with among others, Twitchell's daughter, Sylva Twitchell Hutchins and his third wife, Paula Bane Frazier, whom he married in 1969. The work generally gives most credit for the architecture created by the partnership to Twitchell. Nonetheless, for Rudolph scholars this is a valuable resource on the Twitchell/Rudolph partnership. It covers in detail some obscure projects such as the Lucienne Twitchell Neilson Residence in Martha's Vineyard, MA.
