We've got the bound copies here. Do you have a more specific date? Vol. 45 covers Jan-June 1955, but the page numbers start over each issue. If not, it may take a bit to go through each page 98. I can send them to you directly if I find it.

Subject: [PW] Request help Newsweek ProQuest for Frank Lloyd Wright quotation

A 2016 announcement from ProQuest stated that the company had digitized Newsweek and added the pages to the "News, Policy & Politics Magazine Archive".


Perhaps a list member with access to the Newsweek archive would be willing to search for the following quotation attributed to the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright:

If it keeps up, man will atrophy all his limbs but the push-button finger.

Here is the metadata from a Google Books snippet match:

Year: 1955
Periodical: Newsweek
Volume 45
Quote Page 98 (Another GB match specifies page 436 which might be the count from the start of the volume)

The goal is to obtain a complete and verified citation, e.g., the full date, the page number, the article title, et cetera. Would love to see the PDF.
