ART AND LIBRARY COMMITTEE

ARCHITECTURAL EXHIBITION The Boston Architectural Club will hold its Annual Exhibition at the Boston City Club in November. The Exhibition will consist of

. photographs, drawings, and models of buildings that have been erected during the last year in Boston and vicinity. It is the purpose of the Club to make this Exhibition show some intelligent developments of building projects and the resulting betterment to communities in which such procedure has been adhered to. That is, it is the Club's desire to show the advantage resulting to communities and owners, where proper architectural consideration and study is given, projects of building development, both of a public and private nature.

In connection with the Exposition of successful projects which have received this proper consideration, it is also the intention of the Club to show other developments, both public and private, where the interests of communities have suffered from the lack of such consideration.

EXHIBIT OF WAR POSTERS The Committee will display a unique collection of "War Loan" posters. It is believed that this is the only collection in America. In addition to the exhibit of posters there will be some "active service" testaments, also English regimental badges. This exhibition is loaned to the Club by Mrs. Fiske Warren.

SIR DOUGLAS MAWSON PICTURES There has been hung on the walls a collection of photographs taken by Sir Douglas Mawson on his eventful trip to the Antarctic. This collection contains some of the most wonderful photographs ever made, representing hitherto unknown scenes and objects.

PAINTINGS BY J. A. S. MONKS An exhibition of oil paintings has been hung in the Assembly Room on the third floor, by J. A. S. Monks. They consist mostly of studies in sheep life and are worthy of inspection by the members.

The paintings of Harry L. Hoffman, hanging in the Art Gallery on the third floor, will remain on the walls. Also the exhibitions of Sears Gallagher, Heinrich Roth, and S. Bissell.

The Society of Arts & Crafts will hold an exhibition in the Club House from October 14 to 28.
