In the 1930’s Richard Haliburton was a ‘rock star’ – His partner built him a ‘Landmark of Modern Architecture’ for a place to escape his fans. It’s the inspiration for Ann Rand’s Heller house in Fountainhead
In the 1930s Richard Halliburton, a travel journalist, was a ‘rock star’ and as popular as Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart. He had swam the Panama Canal, (he paid 38 cents to go through the locks), crossed the Alps on an elephant, retraced the track of Cortez’ conquest of Mexico, went around the world in an open cockpit plane and much, much more. The people of the time just loved his adventure books since it was the only way to visualize traveling being pre TV.
