The Tiffany window in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, Ann Arbor

The Kelsey's Tiffany Window

September's I Spy

by by Sally Bjork

From the October, 2013 issue

"I Spy ... the Tiffany window ... [in] the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology's Library," writes Amber Clark of Ypsilanti. The Kelsey "is a treasure trove for so many reasons!" exclaims Gaia Stenson. "A cat mummy and tiffany window in one place. What a gem!" "Oddly, I had never noticed this second story giant window," says Bob DeBona, "despite admiring this building for so many years."

"The picture inspired me to read more about the history of the building," shares Ivana Mrazova. Built in 1891, Newberry Hall was "originally the home of the Student Christian Association." David Collins notes that the window was a memorial to the Rev. Charles Fox of Grand Rapids and two of his sons.

Seventeen people submitted entries in September. Two guessed the other Richardson Romanesque building on State Street, the offices of Hobbs and Black architects. (Originally the First Unitarian Church, it, too, has a Tiffany window.) Our winner, drawn at random from the correct entries, is Amber Clark. She will enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Lena.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue on the Back Page of the October issue to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
