Harleston Parker Medal, 1926

Charles Donagh Maginnis won the design competition for the development of a plan for Boston College's new campus in 1909. His design in English Collegiate Gothic style resulted in "the most beautiful campus in America" according to The American Architect magazine at the time. Maginnis & Walsh went on to design buildings at over twenty-five colleges and universities around the country, and their influence can be seen at neo-gothic havens including Yale and Duke.

Today known as Devlin Hall, it is one of the original four buildings that frame the B.C. Quad. After serving for many years as the center of science research and teaching it was renovated and re-opened in 1993, becoming the McMullen Museum of Art and the undergraduate admission office.
