Maufe designed buildings for his old Oxford College, St John’s, over an extended period, starting with two memorial slabs in 1923, and was made honorary fellow in 1943. His most major works were the Rawlinson Building extension (1933) and Dolphin Quad (1947). This design relates to the 1936 remodelling of the smoking room of the Senior Common Room.
