Building 50: Walker Memorial

Built in 1916 in honor of the former MIT President, Francis A. Walker, Walker Memorial was one of the early buildings built on MIT’s Cambridge campus. The architect, Welles Bosworth (MIT Class of 1889), patterned his design of the building after the gentlemen’s clubs of the nineteenth century, complete with social rooms, meeting rooms, offices, athletic facilities, and dining rooms. Murals, painted by Edwin Howard Blashfield (MIT Class of 1869), grace the walls of Morss Hall. Blashfield’s murals can be seen at the Library of Congress, the Detroit Public Library, and various state buildings around the country.

Had a good time meeting some people, I would love to get some more information about Events and participation. I think the MUddy was a bit to crowded and loud for this purpose. Thanks for the pizza and chats!
