Armstrong Browning Library Offices

Sonnet #6

While the majority of stained glass windows in the Armstrong Browning Library are easily accessible for viewing, there are several that exist inside offices and work spaces on the third floor. These thirteen windows were created and installed over a thirty-year period (1960 - 1990) by Charles J. Connick Associates, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts; Lynn Hovey Studio, Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts; and L. L. Sams Stained Glass, Waco, Texas. The project enhanced the working environment for the staff and successfully filled all of the windows on the third floor with beautiful stained glass.

Please use the room links below, or in the callout box at the bottom right, to view the outstanding windows that are often unavailable to the public and to enjoy excerpts from the poetry that inspired them:
