Remembering The BAC fondly remembers the recently depar ted members of our community. We extend our condolences to their family and friends. Frank C. Adams One foot rmly in the present, the other stepping gently into centuries past, Frank took stately, historic buildings in New England and helped breathe new life into them, adapting old brick, mortar, and stone for modern times. Mr. Adams was a preser vation architect who had taught and advised students at the BAC, and helped to oversee the renovation and expansion of libraries in the region. Frank worked for rms that included Perry, Dean, Stahl & Rogers, and then Stahl Associates. For about four years he was an architect with Burt Hill, Kosar Rittelmann Associates, and in recent years had formed Adams & Smith Architects in Swampscott with Richard Smith. Excerpt from Bryan Marquard ©NY Times Robert S. Sturgis FAIA Robert S. Sturgis FAIA died peacefully at his residence, surrounded by his family on Friday, Aug. , . "Bob was a bulwark of the BAC's traditions of volunteerism and practitioners' commitment to educating the next generations of design professionals. Ted Landsmark re ects, "He was a consummate urban and commu- nity planner. He was a terri c mentor and teacher. His values will live on in the many students, faculty, professionals and commu- nity members who were in uenced by his words and works. Bob was a working professional, but I think his heart was always committed rst and foremost to education, open dialogue and the BAC. He in uenced many who will carry on his ethics and belief in the importance of including all in the development and implemen- tation of ideas that improve our environments. He never truly mellowed in his passion for teaching and learning, and we've all bene ted from his continuing contributions to design education." Bob's volunteer service with the BAC spanned years: Chair of the BAC Board of Directors ( -- ), Chair of EDCO, an honorary alum, elected to the Alumni Association Board. He was very proud of the Sel ess Labor Award he received from the BAC Alumni Association in April at the Cascieri Lecture event. Bob's many years of volunteer ser vice included teaching in the classroom and studio, and serving as a thesis advisor. Bob was President of the BSA and founded the Boston Society of Architects' Urban Design Committee and initiated the AIA's Regional and Urban Design Assistance Team (RUDAT) program. Carol S.
