ROTCIt, Arthur (roach), architect, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 13 May, 1850. He was graduated at Harvard in 1871, and then studied architecture for two years in the Massachusetts institute of technology, and for five years in the Ecole des beaux arts in Paris. While he was in France he had charge of the restoration of the Chateau de Chenonceau. In 1880 he became senior member of the firm of Rotch and Tilden, in Boston, and since that time he has built various churches and the Memorial library building in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, gymnasiums of Bowdoin college and Phillips Exeter academy, Associates' hall, high-school, and academy in Milton, Massachusetts, the art schools and art museum of Wellesley college, and many private houses and business blocks throughout the United States. Mr. Rotch has exhibited water-colors in the Paris salon, the London academy, the New York academy of design, and elsewhere. He is chairman of the visit-lug committee of fine arts of Harvard university, and is one of the corporation of the Massachusetts institute of technology. In conjunction with his brother and sisters he founded, as a memorial to his father, who married a daughter of Abbott Lawrence, the Rotch travelling scholarship, which annually sends a student of architecture to Europe for two years' study and travel.
