Re: Norman Bel Geddes
Having looked at the pictures Paul supplied, you have to wonder if somewhere there is a treasure horde of thousands of exquisite 1200 models that are hidden away. Perhaps,someday, the horde will be found and prove to be worth its weight in gold to collectors around the world.
Thanks Charles. I was able to find a collector who did get access, but as he had no experience or knowledge of older models made before the 1960s, he could not make any determination about them. The UT collection only amounted to about twenty models.
I recall that well over a decade ago Paul asked me to inquire if I could see the models that were curated (stored actually) at the UT Austin campus.
I did try to get an appointment for access but was turned away and told it was impossible.
Perhaps Paul has new information and I would be very willing to try and help in any way that I can.
