I visited the Bauhaus Archiv in Berlin, Germany. After seeing the exhibition on Hungarian presence in Bauhaus (which was significant and involved my namesake, a Bauhaus designer and artist Molnár Farkas), I visited the Bauhaus library and Archive. Unfortunately, no photo could be taken inside and no interview request landed on a fertile soil here. I had hoped to get an interview with an historian there who could tell me more about the historical context of the Bauhaus school end in Germany (1933) before Donald's school - referred to as The New Bauhaus - was established in Chicago (1937). In the archive, though, I found a nice document listing the New Bauhaus students and professors, which contains names of Donald Stolteberg, prof. Charles Owen and also Donald's classmates Fred Berger or Marty Hurtig (ex director of the UIC School of Art and Design). In addition, Hurtig's file was present, showing exhibition invitation cards as well as a questionnaire with an interesting feedback recalling the times of his studies. If you are interested in Bauhaus history, the Berlin Archive might be a place worth visiting. http://bauhaus.de/
