Century Memorial

During more than half a century in Boston, Charles Howard Walker had made architecture his profession, and had reached eminence in that profession. He had planned the architectural arrangement of the expositions at Omaha in 1898 and St. Louis in 1904. But his artistic interests were broader. He had lectured, not only on Walker his professional topic, but on other allied subjects, at institutions as widely separated as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Boston Conservatory of Music.
