Century Memorial

Thomas Nash was one of those modest and self-effacing men whose good work and personal qualities are known only to a small circle of intimates. He was a graceful and imaginative architect, specializing in the Old Colonial but successfully turning to the Gothic, as with Trinity Chapel. He had been a member of the Century for 23 years.
