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 statesÑhis masterpiece the American Embassy chancery (1953Ð59) in New Delhi, India. Recognized in his prime as one of the nationÕs most sought-after architects, Stones vast and prolific 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 person.
