Brief Biography of William C. Wright

William C. Wright, was an itenerant preacher at the Richland Center Baptist Society, and when this didn't prove financially rewarding he became a school teacher, lawyer and politician, but he never entirely lost his fundamental religion.

By always entertaining at the piano, W.C.W. may have given his son Frank Lloyd Wright the notion of architecture as frozen music, not only by giving him a taste for Bach and Beethoven, but obviously a liking for popular Victorian songs as well. "Tis Sweet to Meet, and Each Other Greet" was one melody William C. Wright composed and sold as sheet music. William C. Wright must have also given his son a taste for continuous moving by moving more than thirty times in his life.
