Story of the library banners
In the late 1930s the old building complex was torn down and replaced by Hartwell Hall. The stained glass windows were not used in the new building, but were crated up and stored. Many years later around 1970 a grad student doing research for a history professor ran across the crates, and the history professor, Wayne Dedman, got them moved to the library, where they are on display now in the Kiefer Room. The banners that hang in the main entry way were made from photos of the windows a few years ago.
