A 2016 announcement from ProQuest stated that the company had
digitized Newsweek and added the pages to the "News, Policy & Politics
Magazine Archive".


Perhaps a list member with access to the Newsweek archive would be
willing to search for the following quotation attributed to the famous
architect Frank Lloyd Wright:

If it keeps up, man will atrophy all his limbs but the push-button finger.

Here is the metadata from a Google Books snippet match:

Year: 1955
Periodical: Newsweek
Volume 45
Quote Page 98 (Another GB match specifies page 436 which might be the
count from the start of the volume)

The goal is to obtain a complete and verified citation, e.g., the full
date, the page number, the article title, et cetera. Would love to see
the PDF.
