A graphics magazine has awarded a Certificate of Design Excellence to President Bok and officials of Harvard College in recognition of the Pusey Library Mural "Renaissance Constructed Capitals."

Print Casebook 2 cited the calligraphic design of the mural, which is located in the middle-level corridor linking the Pusey Library with the Widener stack, as "evocative of the tradition of literature and history which the library represents."

"I was very pleased because Print deals primarily with environmental and system graphics and this mural was designed specifically for a library," Merle Westlake, designer of the library, said.
