Building OK, original owner exceptional

Print Article

The late Frank Lloyd Wright building meant something to me only because having the FLW architects design it delighted Bud Lockridge. It seemed to me at the time that it was “nothing to write home about” except for the mystique connected to the FLW name. Most vivid in my memory at its opening is that the fireplace did not draw. I moved away from Whitefish so don’t know if that problem was solved.

Although the building itself was unexceptional and in time was aesthetically and functionally eclipsed by a half dozen other buildings in Whitefish, Bud Lockridge was exceptional, a genial, caring, generous, and dedicated doctor. I do not miss the building, but miss the man who had it built.
