PHILIP JOHNSON

In the news:

Philip Johnson, the architect who died on Tuesday aged 98, created some of the most familiar buildings in the cities of America. ...

On returning to the United States, Johnson set up a short-lived political party based on Hitler's National Socialists. A year later Johnson switched his loyalties to the Union Party, an aggregation of populists and fascists, contributing $5,000 to the campaign of its presidential candidate in 1936.
