Mrs. Charles Stinchfield and a bequest from Mrs. Eldridge M. Fowler funds the donation of the Oratory, which features selections from Mrs. Fowler’s collection of antique Italian furniture and fine textiles. This Oratory later becomes a key part of Margaret Fowler Garden. Architect Gordon Kaufmann designs Margaret Fowler Garden, an enclosed, European medieval-style cloister garden for the east side of the campus to accompany the Oratory. The garden is dedicated to the memory of Margaret Fowler and financed by her friends (Mrs. Stinchfield, Mrs. E.C. Harwood) and family (Mrs. Fowler’s daughter, Mrs. Katherine Merle-Smith, and sister, Ms. Henrietta Brewer).
