This English Gothic complex was inspired by the institutions of Oxford and Cambridge, England and was widely praised by architecture critics and the media. The James Memorial Chapel is the architectural crown of the campus. Its façades are clad in Manhattan schist quarried directly from the foundation, a novel but lauded concept at the time. Its architects designed many institutional buildings in the neighborhood.
