It started with a telegram from FSC founder Dr. Ludd Spivey to renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1938 requesting a meeting "concerning plans for (a) great education temple in Florida" which set in motion plans for the construction of one of the largest concentrations of Wright-designed buildings in the world.

A thorough overview of the history of the campus can be found here.
