Curtis Guild was honored with this Italian-Renaissance style memorial shortly after his death. The elaborate marble frame was carved by the John Evans Shop which would later fabricate the plaque commemorating John F. Kennedy's "City on the Hill" address. The memorial incorporates symbolic references to Guild's political and diplomatic career and contains a portrait relief by noted Boston sculptor Richard Recchia.
