"I even rode the elevators, where I told people that I had come to see the architecture. Most of them were shocked. Not one person I spoke to recognized the name Paul Rudolph." That's shocking! I thought Paul Rudolph was widely known in America ? Don't know much about his buildings in the...

Yes, that's Paul Rudolph's Milam House. It is still there, as is the Milam family. Although I love many of Rudolph's homes, I don't like this one very much. It is really too "outstanding". But there is a new listing in PV Beach, and as it is Jax vicinity, I can post it here: http://www.rea...
