Famous Tulsan As A Teenager: Bruce Goff

bruce goff as a teenager

Bruce Goff, architect and Tulsa Central High School graduate, was already an apprentice for Rush, Endacott, and Rush when this 1922 senior photograph was taken. The caption next to his photograph reads, "An art student of high merit, he has made many of the attractive posters that decorate the corridors. He is a prominent member of Chiaroscuro and also the pride of many English teachers in theme writing. Secret longing---To grow tall. Chief Accomplishment---Futuristic art. Hobby---Program committees."

An entry in Biography in Context states, "Goff... began his career at the age of 12 as an apprentice with the firm of Rush, Endacott and Rush in Tulsa, Oklahoma, educating himself as best he could from the selection of books and periodicals that were available in that office, and in the local library [that's us!]."
