?Colossus,? ?visionary,? ?giant? are superlatives used in the mid-twentieth century to describe Edward Durell Stone (1902?1978), a celebrity architect whose wholly unique modern aesthetic of ?new romanticism? played a crucial role in defining middle-class culture.Framed between the Great Depression and the oil embargo of the early 1970s, the distinguished career of the native Arkansan is represented on four continents, in thirteen foreign countries, and in thirty-two states?his masterpiece the American Embassy chancery (1953?59) in New Delhi, India. Recognized in his prime as one of the nation?s most sought-after architects, Stone?s vast and prestigious workload brought prosperity on a scale rare in architecture in his time; after the death of Frank Lloyd Wright, some supporters thought Stone seemed destined to take the place of his personal hero and close friend as the great national architect.
