Maurice F. Childs Profile
Maurice F. Childs

Established in 2008, The Maurice F. Childs Endowed Lectureship honors the memory of Maurice F. Childs—a dedicated preservationist and celebrated architect who co-founded the Boston-based firm CBT Architects. The BAC and CBT have a long professional and personal history: CBT co-founders Maurice F. Childs, Richard Bertman, and Charles Tseckares taught at the BAC, along with other firm employees. CBT continues to employ and mentor many students and alumni. CBT principal, Kishore Varanasi AICP, serves on the BAC Board of Trustees.
