Polivka kept extensive records of his dealings with Wright including letters, photographs, and sheets of calculations for the Guggenheim’s spiral structure. These documents came to the UB Archives when, in the 1980s, Katka Hammond, Polivka’s granddaughter, a resident of Buffalo, persuaded her mother and uncles to donate them to UB, thereby considerably enriching the University’s holdings of Frank Lloyd Wright documents.
