Kristen E. Finnegan G

Kristen E. Finnegan G died unexpectedly on June 25 in Cambridge of a heart condition.

Finnegan was a doctoral student studying the history, theory, and criticism of art and architecture. She was to have traveled to Germany this spring to study the role of technology and engineering in art and industry in the early modern period in Germany.

Finnegan also worked in the Program in Writing as a teaching fellow. "She had a really nice manner regardless of what she was doing or who she was working with; students loved her," said Andrea J. Publow, who worked in the program with Finnegan.

An award for students in the history of architecture has been established in Finnegan's name.
