The city of Midland, Michigan is synonymous with the name, “Dow”. The Dow family has made it’s mark there with Dow Chemical Company, founded by Herbert Henry Dow in 1897 and also by his son, Alden B. Dow, the architect, who designed more than one hundred buildings there including his own home and studio, a National Historic Landmark. Dow studied with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin in Wisconsin – the summer of 1933 and opened his own studio in 1934.
A new book by Author Diane Maddex, titled “Alden B. Dow, Midwestern Modern,” traces his life, work and intense personal philosophy that governed everything he did.
