Louis Sullivan in The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America

By Erik Larson

Louis Sullivan

Sullivan is among the nation's prominent architects—Burnham selects him to help design the fair's major buildings.

At his own architectural firm, Sullivan would later hire and then fire future architect Frank Lloyd Wright…an architect who would go on to be known as the greatest American architect ever.
