Emmanuel Masqueray was chosen by Archbishop John Ireland to design his monumental cathedral in St. Paul in 1905, which began a thirteen-year collaboration resulting in commissions for thirty churches throughout the Upper Midwest, including the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas on our St. Paul campus.

Alan Lathrop was curator of the Manuscripts Division at the University of Minnesota Libraries from 1970 to 2008. He is the author of Churches of Minnesota and Minnesota Architects.
