Polar Bears on ‘50 Most Powerful’ List (Boston Magazine) Archives


Boston Magazine’s list of “The 50 Most Powerful People in Boston” has in its top spot – Bowdoin grad John Fish ’82, chairman and CEO of Suffolk Construction.

Harvard University President Drew Gilpin Faust, who received an honorary degree from Bowdoin in 2007, comes in at #36.

And William Rawn, founding principal of architectural firm William Rawn Associates, comes in at #44. While not technically an alum, Rawn earned honorary Polar Bear status for his firm’s part in transforming the Curtis Pool into the Studzinski Recital Hall and Kanbar Auditorium, and also for the renovation of Oliver Otis Howard Hall and Harriet Beecher Stowe Hall.
