Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Pugin Studentship Medal

RIBA97292
NOTES: The Council of the RIBA had been given -ú1000 as a Memorial to Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. A Pugin Memorial Trust Committee was established to decide how to use the money and the proposal was for an annual travelling studentship to study the medieval architecture of Great Britain and Ireland. The competition was open to members of the profession from any country between the ages of 18 and 25. The successful candidate had to undertake a study tour in the United Kingdom lasting at least 8 weeks producing a report and sketches at the end. The candidate only received the money and the medal when he presented these to Council. This medal is the one awarded to John James Joass in 1893 for his study tour of north-east Scotland.

Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Rome Scholarship in Architecture Medal presented to Marshall Arnott Sisson in 1936

RIBA97294
NOTES: The Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851 ran a competition for a Rome Scholarship in Architecture for three years study at the British School in Rome. In 1913 the RIBA joined with the Commissioners to run the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship, worth -ú200 and two years at the British School in Rome. The same conditions applied for both awards and was judged by the Faculty of Architecture of the British School in Rome. The first prize winner would be awarded the Rome Scholarship in Architecture and the runner-up the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship. Although a medal was proposed as early as 1934, a list of recipients was not compiled until 1936. It was to be rewarded retrospectively and the RIBA had determined that the medal would be given to recipients of the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship as well as recipients of the Rome Scholarship in Architecture. Marshall Arnott Sisson, to whom the medal pictured here was presented, was awarded the Henry Jarvis Travelling Scholarship in 1924.

Royal Institute of British Architects' President's Badge and Chain of Office, commissioned by T. L. Donaldson and made by Hunt & Roskell

RIBA97403
NOTES: In late April 1879 the Institute held its annual dinner in the FreemasonsÔÇÖ Tavern, Great Queen Street, London, with the then President, Charles Barry Jnr, in the chair and the Patron, HRH the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), in attendance. In the final toast, proposed by the Prince of Wales, Professor Donaldson was singled out by the Prince as a veteran and loved member of the Institute. Following this dinner Donaldson proposed to the President and Council that he be allowed to present to the Institute a badge and chain of office for the President. He had intended to leave money in his will for this, but following the dinner felt that presenting the badge and chain in commemoration of the Prince of WalesÔÇÖs attendance at the InstituteÔÇÖs annual dinner would be more appropriate. Council agreed and the badge and chain, made by Hunt & Roskell (silversmiths and jewellers to Queen Victoria), was first presented by the outgoing President, Mr Barry, to the incoming President, John Whichcord, at the opening meeting of the new session of the Royal Institute of British Architects on 1 December 1879. The designer of the badge is not known ÔÇô possibly it was designed by Donaldson himself. [Builder, vol. 37, 1879, p. 477-479, 1334]
