Larger Version

The international jury, chosen by Maybeck, consisted of four major architects, from France, Germany, England, and the United States. They were: Jean-Louis Pascal, architect of additions to the National Library, Paris; Paul Wallot, designer of the Reichstag Building in Berlin; Richard Norman Shaw, England's most respected architect of the time; and Walter Cook, who practiced in New York and was a member of the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects. In the second round, the ailing Shaw was replaced by John Belcher, who was becoming the major designer of monumental classical buildings in the late Victorian (and early Edwardian) era. Jacob B. Reinstein served ex-officio to represent the Regents.
