Ralph Adams Cram's 150th December 2013 saw the 150th anniversary of Ralph Adam Cram's birth. A small committee organized a weekend celebration of this seminal figure of 20th century architecture, Friday & Saturday, 13 & 14 December 2013. On Friday, informal tours took place at the Church of the Advent, Ruggles Street Church, and Boston University. The day finished with a reception and dinner at the MIT Media Lab, and featured an address by Richard Guy Wilson, Commonwealth Professor and Chair of Architectural History, University of Virginia.Saturday opened with an organized bus tour of the conventual church at the Society of Saint John the Evangelist, Cambridge, St. Elizabeth of Hungary Chapel, Sudbury (the Cram family chapel at St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church), and Cram's Federal-style house in Sudbury, "Whitehall".The day ended with an Advent Service of Nine Lessons and Carols sung by the Choir of Men & Boys at the Parish of All Saints, Ashmont. A reception followed this hour-long lessons and carols service, with a brief presentation by John G. Waite, Senior Principal, John G. Waite Associates, Architects, PLLC. Gracious God, we offer thanks for the vision of Ralph Adams Cram, John LaFarge and Richard Upjohn, whose harmonious revival of the Gothic enriched our churches with a sacramental understanding of reality in the face of secular materialism; and we pray that we may honor thy gifts of the beauty of holiness given through them, for the glory of Jesus Christ; who livest and reignest with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting.
